Hi 1st grade families-
I just wanted to touch base quickly as I have been receiving questions from families. I am sure by now you have heard that all Illinois schools, including Chicago Public Schools will be closed starting Tuesday, March 17th through Monday, March 30th- with classes scheduled to resume on Tuesday, March 31st. I will still be available for contact via email.
I have been working on a contingency plan for students to work on at home. This will require guidance from families at home. I am creating and finding resources to be accessible online. Students who come to school tomorrow will also receive a hard-copy packet of the work.
I understand that some families will be choosing to keep their little one at home. If this is the case, please let me know.
If you choose to keep your student at home, a digital copy of the packet will be sent home via email to everyone.
Tomorrow will be dedicated to cleaning out desks, lockers, and book bins for these two weeks of no classes. Students will also have an opportunity to take home a baggie of books from our classroom library.
If your child has the after school enrichment program with me on Mondays, please note that they will be cancelled for March 16th. All students in the Monday and Tuesday after school enrichment programs with me, will be cancelled until further notice-- even after we return. I will keep in contact with those families if the program is to resume.
If your child attends the Something to Build Upon after school program, please make alternative arrangements for a 2:45pm pick up as the STBU program has been cancelled tomorrow.
This has certainly been quite a unique school year and I thank you all for your flexibility and understanding during this time.
