As always, we hope you and your family are safe and healthy. Today I want to share with you information regarding the end of our academic school year. As you may know, our originally scheduled last day of school was May 20th, but we are aware that some of our students have been struggling with completing their assigned work during remote learning. To address this, we have moved the last day for new work to be due to May 13th. This means there will be no new learning or assignments after May 13th. We will then use May 14th to May 20th as time for students to make up missing and incomplete assignments. If your student is up to date with their assignments, they would not have any additional work to do from May 14th to May 20th.
I have outlined the May Instructional Changes below -
All assigned work will have a due date no later than May 13th
As of May 14th, students who have completed their work will receive no additional assignments but will still need to report attendance daily. (This may seem odd but ISBE requires 174 days of attendance, and this reporting process will help us meet that requirement)
The time from May 14th – 20th will be dedicated to any students who have incomplete or missing work. Teachers will provide support for students with missing or incomplete work and students will have this week to complete and turn in their missing or incomplete work. If your student is expected to complete work during this time you will be receiving communication from your student’s school.
Families, it is our hope that by providing this additional time and support your student(s) they can complete the work necessary to move on next school year. As I have stated previously, if you are facing difficulty, please reach out to your child’s teacher or principal, and we will work with you to support your child.
