Superintendent's Corner

Dr. Shelly Davis-Jones

Dear Parents and Guardians,


On Friday, February 4, 2022, the Sangamon County Circuit Court granted a temporary restraining order (TRO) affecting certain school districts and specific individuals in those districts. The TRO temporarily suspended

enforcement of mask mandates for students, and exclusion for asymptomatic close contacts.


Due to a separate ruling limiting the scope of the litigation, the TRO applies only to the parties of the lawsuit. Dolton School District 149 was not a party to that case, and therefore the TRO does not apply to Dolton School District 149.


Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, Dolton School District 149 has been committed to maintaining a safe and healthy learning environment for our students and staff. In furtherance of that commitment and because we are not a party to the pending litigation, Dolton School District 149 is maintaining its COVID-19 mitigation measures and protocols. Therefore, there will be no changes in Dolton School District 149 requirements.


We will continue to require masking for everyone while indoors at school and while on school transportation and follow our current mitigation practices for exclusion of individuals who are close contacts. We appreciate your patience and cooperation as we continue to prioritize student and staff health and safety while providing in-person learning.


Thank You,



Dr. Shelly Davis-Jones
