Thursday, May 19, 2022
Dear TWAIN Community,
Chicago Public Schools (CPS) is committed to keeping you informed of the most current developments regarding COVID-19. A person who was in our school building on May 16-17, 2022 tested positive for COVID-19. We are sending this notification for your awareness, and you do not need to take any further action at this time. If you have been identified as a close contact, you should have received a separate notification from the Office of Student Health and Wellness with additional information.

As a reminder, we can slow the spread of COVID-19 as a CPS school community by getting vaccinated, social distancing whenever possible, signing up for weekly testing at school, wearing masks in public spaces including schools, washing our hands thoroughly, and avoiding close contact with people who are sick.  

The best way to keep you and your child safe from COVID-19 is to get vaccinated. Vaccines are safe, effective, and available to everyone ages five and up. In addition, vaccinated students who are exposed to COVID-19 can avoid staying home and stay in the classroom as long as they remain without symptoms. To find a vaccine appointment, you can search vaccines.gov, text your ZIP code to 438829, call 1-800-232-0233, or visitcps.edu/vaccinations

CPS also strongly encourages families to sign their child up for weekly COVID-19 testing at school by visitingcolor.com/readycheckgo-cps. If you need help locating medical care or have any CPS-specific questions, please visitcps.edu or reach out to the Healthy CPS Hotline at 773-553-KIDS (5437), which is staffed 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.

I am here to support you as we move forward together as one healthy, supportive, and engaged school family. 

Sincerely,

TWAIN Administration

Deseamos recordarles que podemos combatir la transmisión del COVID-19 como comunidad escolar al recibir la vacuna, manteniendo el distanciamiento social siempre que sea posible, haciendo uso de mascarilla en público, lavándose bien las manos y evitando el contacto cercano con personas enfermas.
