Dear Solomon Family--

Chicago Public Schools (CPS) is committed to keeping families and staff informed of the most current developments regarding the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). People who were in our school building on March 25, 2021 tested positive for COVID-19. We are sending this notification for your awareness, and you do not need to take any further action at this time. If you have been identified as a close contact, you should have received a separate notification from the Office of Student Health and Wellness with quarantine instructions.

The affected pods will be asked to stay at home and switch to online learning until further notice. All other activities can continue.

As a reminder, we can slow the spread of COVID-19 as a school community by social distancing whenever possible, wearing masks in public, washing our hands thoroughly, and avoiding close contact with people who are sick. 

If you have any questions about COVID-19, please review our FAQ here. For district updates and resources, visit If you need help locating medical care or have any CPS-specific questions, please reach out to the CPS Command Center at or 773-553-KIDS (5437), which is staffed 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.

I am here to support you as we move forward together as one healthy, supportive, and engaged school family. 

In partnership,

Chris Gamble
Hannah G. Solomon Elementary School
