Dear Solomon Families--

Yesterday Solomon was notified that it will be a part of a student COVID-19 testing program during the month of April. We were identified for being a school located in the 10 zip codes with the highest COVID-19 rates based on data from the Chicago Department of Public Health. Each week, 25% of students at our school will be randomly selected for testing. Students must be at least 10 years old and have their parent or guardian provide consent to being tested. For more information, click here.

Paper copies of the consent form traveled home with students in grades 4 and up yesterday, and we will send more copies home with our Pod B students on Thursday. We have been told that digital copies of the consent form will be available later in the week.

Last, and unrelated, we have been given an update on the Pre-Kindergarten application process for the 2021-2022 school year. The application will launch on April 21. For more information on the Pre-Kindergarten application process, click here.

In partnership,
