Community Consolidated School District 21 serves nearly 7,000 students in 13 schools across 6 communities in the northwest suburbs of Chicago. Hawthorne Early Childhood School serves early childhood students. Morning classes are from 9 AM until 11:15 AM, and afternoon classes are from 1 until 3:30 PM. On Friday afternoons, students are not in attendance.
More than 1,600 COVID-19 vaccines were administered to CCSD21 staff, staff members from neighboring school districts, and eligible seniors in the northwest suburban community on Thursday, March 11, thanks to a partnership between Jewel-Osco and School District 21.
In one of its largest single-day vaccine events to date, pharmacists from Jewel-Osco administered the first dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine to more than 1,600 individuals. The second dose will be administered in early April. The effort would not have been possible without CCSD21 staff who facilitated the check-in and registration process.
“I want to sincerely thank Jewel-Osco for their extraordinary partnership and all of the CCSD21 staff who worked so hard to make this an extremely smooth and successful event,” said Dr. Michael Connolly, CCSD21 Superintendent. “This was a perfect example of teamwork and positive action to support our colleagues and community.”
