No students are among the six cases, according to updates from officials atLycée Français de Chicago, a bilingual French international school in Ravenswood.

The Chicago Department of Public Health contacted school officials a week after the March 7 fundraiser at Morgan Manufacturing, 401 N. Morgan St., to let them know of a positive case, a letter to the school community said.

The adult didn’t show any symptoms and the rest of the attendees were deemedto be “low risk” for contracting the virus. Everyone who attended the gathering was advised to practice social distancing until this coming Sunday.

Since then, however, five more cases have been confirmed, including parents and staff.

”All parts of our adult community have been touched: parents, staff and other Soirée attendees,” wrote school president Eric Veteau.

Lycée Français de Chicago serves more than 700 pre-kindergarten through 12th grade students, primarily in the International Baccalaureate orFrench Baccalauréat programs.
