Pending board approval, Indian Prairie School District 204 will be implementing voluntary COVID-19 surveillance monitoring for staff and some students. At last night’s board meeting, Superintendent Dr. Adrian Talley said the test is not a diagnostic test, but rather it may reveal potential presence of COVID-19. More details are expected to be revealed at the next board of education meeting on January 25.

Also at the meeting, Talley said the district is partnering with Jewel-Osco and the Will County Health Department to vaccinate IPSD’s category 1a staff against COVID-19. According to Talley, 1a district employees include occupational therapists, physical therapists, speech pathologists, and nurses. Once Phase 1a is completed, those in 1b, which includes teachers and those 65 years or older, will be next to receive the vaccine.
