Chicago public schools delay lessons for third day over Covid-19 safety fears

The Chicago Public Schools (CPS) told parents on Thursday evening that classes will be canceled for the third day in a row on Friday due to a failure to reach an agreement between the district and the Chicago Teachers Union.

"On Friday, January 7, CPS classes will be canceled. Tomorrow, a limited number of schools may offer in-person learning and activities. Please wait until you hear from your child's principal before sending your child to school "In a communication to parents, the district stated.

The decision comes after the Chicago Teachers Union decided Tuesday night to refuse to show up for in-person work, claiming concerns about Covid-19 safety. CPS, the country's third-largest school district, postponed classes for more than 340,000 kids on Wednesday and Thursday.
