School Reopening Plan

Dear Harmony-Emge SD 175,

Yesterday afternoon, Governor J.B. Pritzker issued an executive order that included the mandatory wearing of masks inside all prekindergarten through 12th grade school buildings. This order is for all students and staff regardless of their vaccination status and is effective immediately.

Therefore, Harmony-Emge 175 has amended our previously approved Return to School Plan to reflect this executive order. Please see the attached plan, which is also available on our website at

The mask requirement is also inclusive of youth sports and activities, and mandates that masks be worn for all indoor extracurriculars and sports. In line with CDC guidance, masks are not required for activities outdoors.
