14. I'm in Illinois, Too

The OP is from somewhere directly south. (We live in one of the collar counties.)
The priority is based on "essential" work and age.
65 & older matters. I'm 64.
Teachers, aides, admin, maintenance, security, and food service are essential, subs are not.
So during the colder months, I'm at school more than 60% of the time, and I'm 8 months from 65.
But, neither priority category applies to me.
Not meaning to be dismissive of the cafeteria folks, but subs have more direct contact with those hundred or 2 hundred or 8 hundred kids than the food service folks. I'm happy to see their on the list, but not sure how a sub isn't considered essential, too.
Ask any real teacher if they think good subs are essential.
Geez, I have teachers in multiple districts requesting me specifically. I must not suck!
