Adaptive Pause

November 23rd - December 4th

November 19, 2020


Dear Evergreen Academy families,


We are completing our fourteenth week of full in-person, and while we have had one positive COVID case, it was not linked back to exposure in the school setting.  Our students and staff have done a great job of hand sanitizing, social distancing and mask wearing.  We diligently have been disinfecting door handles, lunch room tables, student desks and other high traffic areas in order to provide a healthy and safe environment for teaching and learning.


Due to the county-wide positivity rate, Evergreen Academy will be taking an “adaptive pause” from Monday, November 23rd - Friday, December 4th.  During this time, all students will be receiving instruction remotely.  Also, it is possible that Governor Pritzker could extend additional mitigation measures for our region and/or state while we are remote learning which could extend the timeline. If any changes do occur, this will be communicated through a phone call and email. We will continue to work with the McHenry County Health Department and follow the guidance of the Illinois Department of Public Health.


I would also like to thank our Evergreen families and students for monitoring their symptoms and staying home when sick.  These efforts have helped keep our school outbreak-free.  Our Evergreen community has worked diligently to make these uncertain times feel a bit more normal and the resiliency of staff, students and parents to adapt to changes has been greatly appreciated.  I ask, during this upcoming Thanksgiving holiday, that you continue doing your part; monitor and report all symptoms, diligently sanitize hands and surrounding areas, continue to social distance and keep wearing your masks.
