Response to COVID-19 Mitigations Lawsuit

February 7, 2022


Dear Pembroke families, 


I write to ask for your patience and understanding as our district navigates the latest changes to the COVID-19 guidance and rules for Illinois schools. 


Late last week, an Illinois Judge ruled on a lawsuit filed by more than 700 parents across the state that challenged state-mandated COVID-19 mitigations.


At this time, we are in the process of reviewing the Judge’s decision and will communicate with you as soon as possible whether this ruling impacts Pembroke CCSD #259 students and staff members.


Until then, I ask for your patience as we review this decision. 


Thank you for your continued support of our students, teachers, and staff. While it has been a difficult year, we will continue to push forward together.
