Coronavirus-Remote Learning Days
Due to the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19), Governor Pritzker has canceled in person classes at all Illinois schools for the remainder of the 2019-20 school year.
We will continue to implement our Distance Learning Plan (click here to see FAQs) on weekdays through the last day of school on Friday, May 22. We are fortunate to have the tools and staff expertise that allow us to continue engaging students remotely, whether that means reviewing content or introducing new content. In fact, all teachers now have access to Zoom for classroom and small group meetings. This provides more personal interaction between teachers and students.
As outlined by the state, grading guidelines are based on the principle of “no harm to any child”, which means no student’s academic standing should be adversely affected by Remote Learning Days. However, students do have the opportunity to improve their grades. Keeping this in mind, we have created grading guidelines:
Below you can view the recommended time students should spend on learning each day, determined by state and local the guidelines.
*Please note this chart reflects estimated engagement time in total for the day; however students are not required to work for 120 minutes straight. Parents can chunk the learning time based on their own knowledge and discretion regarding their child’s individual attention span.
