Though there is no positive test, a parent at Lockport’s Ludwig School may have been exposed to the coronavirus at work, according to a letter from District 92 Superintendent Tim Arnold.

The community letter stated that Arnold spoke to the parent at 10 p.m. on the night of Tuesday, March 17, to verify the status.

The Ludwig parent was exposed to a student at the school where the parent teaches and the student’s father owns a business that has an employee who has been tested, but no results are available yet.  

According to Arnold, the school district is monitoring the student and their family. There are no positive test results at this time.

The Ludwig parent has been self-quarantining and acting out of an abundance of caution. No family members have been on school grounds since March 13.

“Throughout last night and this morning, I have been in contact with the Illinois Coronavirus Hotline, the Will County ROE and the CDPH to ensure that District 92 is taking every responsible measure to ensure the safety of our community,” Arnold wrote in the letter.

D92 staff are being asked to stay home as authorities assess the situation.
