Joint Statement Regarding DeVore Lawsuit

Lake Forest Community High School District 115
Board of Education President Jenny Zinser

Lake Forest Elementary District 67
Board of Education President Justin Engelland

We are aware of the lawsuit filed in Macoupin County by Attorney Thomas DeVore, on behalf of several Illinois parents, questioning interpretation of Governor Pritzker’s mask mandate and related exclusion directives for schools.

This lawsuit names 145 Illinois school districts including Lake Forest Elementary School District 67 and Lake Forest Community High School District 115. We are currently working with our legal counsel and insurance carrier to review the suit and determine next steps.

We look forward to a time when we can all move beyond the pandemic. For now, we stand behind our current health and safety protocols and remain committed to doing what is in the best interest of our students, staff, and community.
