Updates on School Closure and Remote Learning
Visit the District 35 Remote Learning Page for all information. Governor Pritzker extended the mandated stay-at-home order and closed all schools for the remainder of the year.
During the school closures, the Board of Education offices will operate with limited staffing to ensure that essential operations remain from 9:00 am - 1:00 pm on weekdays. All administrators will be available via email as they work remotely. Should you need to contact us for any additional support, please call 847-835-7820 or send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Our ability to pull together and take these next steps with care and compassion is already making a difference. Please take care and reach out if you need anything.
Updates from District 35
This will be our final Monday newsletter as Friday is our final day of student attendance for the 2019-2020 school year. Please take a few minutes to view our video message with updates on plans within District 35. We have included news on:
• End-of-Year Reminders
• Summer Resources for all K-8 Students
• Plans for 2020-2021
As we plan for the coming school year, we are approaching the work with tremendous care and with children at the heart of every decision. We are all eager to resume in-person instruction; yet, we recognize that we can only do so with the health and safety of our students and staff as a top priority. During the summer, we will continue our efforts to plan for the coming year and ensure you remain updated on the news from the schools. Please watch your inbox as we will send news, brief surveys, and learning updates to District 35 parents every other week during June and July.
We are so grateful for the many ways we have worked together to support our students during this unprecedented time. The generous spirit of our community has truly made a positive difference during these last few months. Thank you!
Take care and be safe as a family,
