U-46 Schools Doors Closed through end of April. Teaching and Learning Continues
Dear School District U-46 Parents, Families, and Staff:
I hope that this message finds you and your families safe and well. Today, Governor Pritzker announced that on-site learning in schools is suspended until the end of April. This means we will continue to engage in distance learning which we successfully started today. While it is not ideal, our teachers are fully engaged to help students learn remotely for the coming month and beyond. We must continue to support the state’s effort to reduce the spread of the coronavirus.
Tomorrow we will share more detailed guidance on summative, or final, assessments and grading. We are also working to cancel all activities, including field trips and proms, that had been scheduled. I know that hurts to hear, but we will look to provide alternate events or activities once this crisis has ended. We also will be delaying our high school graduations and will inform families as soon as possible about the alternate arrangements.
Families should continue to look at our COVID-19 website for Distance Learning information and updates here: https://www.u-46.org/learning while staff are encouraged to go to the Intranet, then “Distance Learning,” for all staff updates.
If you have any questions, please send them through Let’s Talk, using the COVID button.
Today, we posted two tutorial videos about how to report absences and attendance; one video covers how to report absences of elementary students and the other covers how middle and high school students can log into Infinite Campus to report their attendance or absence each day. These videos and more can be found on our COVID-19 Distance Learning Page here
