No Changes to COVID Mitigations for JTHS
Joliet Township High School

On Friday, a court ruling in Springfield resulted in a temporary restraining order (TRO) of the executive orders from the Governor for approximately 150 of Illinois’ 850 school districts that are named in the lawsuit. Joliet Township High School (JTHS) is not a defendant in this lawsuit. JTHS is aware of the lawsuit and we are awaiting further guidance; however, at this time, because JTHS is not a defendant in this lawsuit, JTHS will continue to follow the guidance currently in place. 

Please note, the order issued by the Judge is being appealed to the appellate court and that appeal may take as long as February 17th for a decision.   

We ask you for your patience as we await further guidance and the appellate court decision. At this time, there are no changes to the COVID mitigations currently in place at JTHS.  We will continue to monitor the legal implications of the court case, guidance from IDPH, and ISBE.  We will notify our parents, students, and staff should anything change with our COVID mitigations.  

Our number one priority is maintaining a safe and healthy learning environment for all students, staff, and visitors to our school and allowing education to happen in the least disruptive environment possible. Thank you in advance for your continued cooperation in achieving this priority.
