High school students in Lake Forest returned to class Monday morning, despite an ongoing teachers strike.

Parents received a mandatory order last week for all students to return to class. The district said students will participate in educational programs run by administrators, substitute teachers and community volunteers.

The 150 teachers went on strike after contract talks broke off late last Tuesday over salary and benefits. The strike left about 1,700 students out of class.

Negotiations continued at 9 a.m. Monday.

Meanwhile, Chicago teachers remained on strike for the sixth day Monday as union delegates review the proposed deal.
