Bethany Lutheran School
Naperville’s Bethany Lutheran School is now unrecognized by the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) for failing to comply with the state’s mask mandate. The ISBE confirmed it is reaching out to public and non-public school districts to address compliance issues. Bethany Lutheran School officials have not responded to requests for comment. Schools that lose recognition status from the state will lose access to state funding and the ability to take part in IHSA and IESA sports.
With District 203 and 204 back in school, the DuPage County Health Department is urging community members to take preventive measures to help slow the spread of COVID-19. Community transmission rates are currently at a high level, and the DCHD says the most critical tool in the fight against COVID-19 is getting vaccinated. Wearing a mask, maintaining six feet of distance, and washing your hands are also steps community members can take to help slow the spread.
