Spring Sports Tournaments Canceled
Today the IHSA officially canceled all spring sports tournaments for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year. The announcement comes five days after Governor J.B. Pritzker announced that Illinois High Schools will finish the school year from home through e-learning. IHSA Executive Director Craig Anderson did state that there could be some kind of spring sport competitions later this year if State officials determine that such gatherings are safe, in which case the decision to play and practice would be left up to the school districts and conferences. The IHSA also ruled that summer contact days are on hiatus until further notice.
Public Library Update
The Naperville Public Library announced yesterday that all in-person programs have been canceled through June 30. The library’s room reservations for the month of May have also been canceled. Library buildings are closed through April 30 due to the governor’s stay-at-home order. The library may extend those dates as needed. In the meantime, the library is encouraging community members to check its website for digital resources.

The Naperville Art League is still holding its annual Public Art Competition, but this time it is inviting community members to vote online for their favorite artwork. About 50 local artists are competing this year, with their works ranging from traditional to contemporary and more. Voting ends Friday, April 24, and can be found on the league’s Facebook page.
