Herscher High School will be closed for student attendance from October 27-November 9 to perform a deep cleaning of the building and to contain the spread of the coronavirus.
The closing was recommended by the Kankakee Health Dept. because more than one student at Herscher High School has tested positive for COVID-19 or is showing symptoms of COVID-19 and other students who were known to be in close proximity of that student(s) have tested positive or are demonstrating symptoms of COVID-19.
Starting October 28-November 9, all Herscher High School students will receive Remote Instruction from their teachers.
There will be no Career Center, FFA, Band, or SAT make-up. However, X-C practice and the Sectional meet is still on. The high school office will remain open as well.
Students may return to in-person instruction on November 10, 2020. Students may stop by the school to pick-up necessary educational items, but must report to the office when entering the building. All schools in the district were closed on October 27th for a District-wide Remote Instruction Planning Day.
On October 28th, Limestone Middle School, Herscher Intermediate School and Bonfield Grade School re-opened for in-person instruction.
Bus service, lunch service and after school care will remain for the PK-8 Schools. There will be lunches available for 9-12 students as well.
