Students and their families have been anxious to know the potential plans for fall, and OTHS District 203 and O’Fallon District 90 have released their potential plans. Both districts’ plans include the option for families to choose fully remote learning, but the student must commit to remote learning for the entirety of the fall semester.
The plans were shared today, as St. Clair County hit a 13.4 percent positivity rate for COVID-19 cases. Over the past week, the rate has been just over eight percent, which is more than double the state of Illinois’ average positivity rate, according to St. Clair County Emergency Management Agency Assistant Director Bryan Whitaker. Of the 59 new cases announced today in the county, three were in their teens, and three are under the age of ten. O’Fallon alone has seen an increase of 34 cases in the past nine days.
