Masks Required for D204 Students
Indian Prairie School District 204 students will be required to wear masks this fall. Two weeks ago, the district voted for optional mask wearing. Since then, COVID-19 positivity rates have increased and Governor J.B. Pritzker issued a mask mandate for schools. The district said at last night’s board of education meeting it will follow that mandate. The first day of school is August 19.
Morton Arboretum Tree Planting Initiative
The Morton Arboretum is working to help replace up to 300 trees that were lost during the June 20 tornado that hit parts of the Chicago area, including Naperville.

The project is part of the arboretum’s 2022 Centennial Tree Planting Initiative, aiming to plant a total of 1,000 trees.
