UPDATE AS OF JULY 27, 2021
At the July 26th Board of Education meeting, Peoria Public Schools announced that the district will be adopting a universal masking protocol to start the school year. Peoria Public Schools has worked closely with the Peoria City/County Health Department, throughout the pandemic and continued to collaborate in preparation for the upcoming school year.
PPS believes that masking and physical distancing in our schools are key prevention strategies, particularly as COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations are on the rise locally. COVID-19 testing with our partners at Reditus Labs, contact tracing after positive cases and thorough cleaning procedures will also remain a stalwart part of our COVID-19 mitigation efforts.Further information on our COVID-19 plan for the school year will be shared in the upcoming weeks.
