Read the letter from Principal Love here.
Mayor Lori E. Lightfoot announced tonight that Chicago Public Schools will remain closed from now through April 20th to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19.
In light of this announcement, Alain Locke will now be closed until April 20th, with classes set to resume on Tuesday, April 21st.
Free lunch and breakfast will still be available to all Chicago-area students if needed. All families will be able to pick up meals outside of their nearest CPS school beginning March 17th, between 9:00 am and 1:00 pm Monday-Friday throughout the closure. Students will not need to provide ID or proof of address. They will not be turned away.
If anyone is in need of delivery during the closure, you can call 773-553-KIDS for emergency delivery. If you need help locating medical care, please reach out to the CPS Office of Student Health and Wellness at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling the CPS Command Center at 773-553-KIDS (5437).
