ORLAND PARK, Ill. (CBS) — Parents and students continue to put pressure on Gov. JB Pritzker to reopen schools and school sports.

Rallies were held Thursday in the northwest and southwest suburbs, including Orland Park. As CBS 2 Investigator Megan Hickey reported, parents said the status quo – rooted in precautions for COVID-19, is doing more harm than good.

Sources said the discussions were continuing Thursday night, and that the Governor’s office is at least reviewing these requests to return fall sports in Illinois.

Meanwhile, there was another night of rallies, and at least right now no end in sight.

“If you’re playing it correctly, there is no contact whatsoever,” said St. Lawrence High School freshman volleyball player Ella Woltman.
