Parent Message: April 1, 2021


Dear District 27 Community,

Our District was just made aware of a hoax letter that is circulating on social media. This letter was crafted to appear as if it was written by our District, but please know that it was not.

The letter mentions a false directive by the Illinois State Board of Education and a subsequent impact on our students. We are not sure if the letter was created in the spirit of April Fools’ Day. However, we are disappointed that someone would create such a hoax for our students and parents during an already challenging time.

Again, District 27 did not release such a letter and we will continue to investigate this matter.
