Dear Families:

We would like to take a moment to thank you for your interest in volunteering in North Palos District 117 and its schools. We realize your time is valuable and your willingness to contribute some of that valuable time shows your commitment to the safety and well-being of your child and all our students and staff. As you may know, Governor Pritzker has issued several executive orders. 

On August 30, he mandated masks be worn in all schools by everyone in the school and also required all school employees, volunteers, and contractors working in Pre-Kindergarten through 12th grade schools to either provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination status or submit to weekly COVID-19 testing.

Volunteers who need to provide vaccination status or submit weekly negative test results are only those who volunteer at least weekly in our schools.  This requirement is set to begin on September 19.  We apologize if this causes any inconvenience.  Unfortunately, we are required to follow this newest set of guidelines.

Again, thank you for your willingness to volunteer and all your efforts in helping make NPD117 such an amazing school district!


Jeannie Stachowiak, Ed.D.
