Geneva School District 304 has launched its own COVID-19 dashboard so that parents, students and members of the community can be aware of the active cases in Geneva schools.

The dashboard is available at this link.

The dashboard includes the current number of active and cumulative COVID-19 positive cases reported for in-person learners and staff in the school district, as well as the greater context of how many individuals are in District 304 buildings.

“Our hope is that this information will provide a transparent picture for our school community, which to date reflects the great strides we are taking to follow health and safety guidelines,” officials said.

Information will be updated weekly on Friday afternoons.

District 304 officials say quarantining is taking place due to a variety of proactive measures, out of an abundance of caution.

Communication regarding quarantining due to positive or presumed positive tests will continue to be sent to families identified as being directly related to the case through the contact tracing process, and those numbers will not be included in the dashboard.

Any cases of online-only individuals are not included in the data, as they are not part of our reporting process.

“Please remember that if you hear of someone being quarantined, it (usually) does not mean they are positive for COVID-19.

For additional data related to trends in our community, please visit the Kane County COVID-19 Dashboard.

School officials say they see continued success of hybrid in-person learning. The district’s Back Together 304 plan includes:

  • Shared responsibility between families and staff to follow Daily Symptom Screening process.
  • Adherence to guidelines on masks, social distancing, and hand hygiene.
  • Increased, collaborative cleaning protocols.
  • Added contact tracing support for our Health Services team.
  • Continued collaboration with Kane County Health Department.

“Our schools are doing a great job of really working on social distancing, cleaning and disinfecting, and staying in close contact with us,” said Apryll Elliott, assistant director for communicable disease.

We are so proud of the work our staff, students, and school community are doing to help support a safe, high level of learning each day. We would like to ask everyone to remember to follow The Three Ws: Wear a mask, Watch your distance, and Wash your hands.
