The ISBE has placed the NCOE school district on “probation” and as a consequence our students will be penalized and not able to participate in upcoming activities such as band competitions, scholastic bowl, sporting events, etc. Tonight, the NCOE Board of Education voted to follow the Governor’s Executive Order mandating masks for all teachers, students, and visitors, regardless of vaccination status to avoid penalizing our students. The mandate will begin Monday, August 30, 2021. No matter where you fall on this issue, I want to thank you in advance for your cooperation and support. Together we will all get through this very challenging time and hope there will be an end to this soon!!
