Classes at Dundee-Crown High School, located at 1500 Kings Rd. in Carpentersville, will be canceled on Thursday and Friday and all after-school activities will be canceled through Sunday following reports of possible coronavirus exposure at the school.
In an email to Dundee-Crown parents and guardians, Algonquin-based District 300 Superintendent Fred Heid said the district was notified at 11 a.m. Wednesday by Kane County Health Department officials of a possible case of coronavirus, or COVID-19, exposure.
The closures will allow time for teams to perform a comprehensive cleaning of the building.
According to the email, the affected student and their family have been advised by the Kane County Department of Health to self-quarantine while they await test results for another member of the immediate family. The student and their family members also were tested for COVID-19 Wednesday as a precaution.
The school district confirmed that the student did not attend any large gatherings or school events in the last few weeks and is not showing any signs or symptoms related to coronavirus.
All after school activities have been canceled through Sunday.
