Lincoln-Way 210 UpdateWednesday, April 1, 2020
Yesterday, Governor Pritzker announced that Illinois will continue its suspension of in-person instruction through April 30, 2020. A return to school date has yet to be established.
We acknowledge this has been a challenging, difficult, and stressful time for our entire community. There is certainly an element of sadness and disappointment as educational and extra-curricular opportunities for our students have been lost.
As this situation is different from anything anyone has ever encountered, the social-emotional well-being of our students and staff is our primary concern. Any students in need of social-emotional support should contact their counselor or a building administrator.
While there is no replacement for face-to-face learning, I’m encouraged by the efforts of our teachers, students, and parents during this exceptional time. I thank you all for your flexibility, patience, and compassion as we transition to this new way of teaching, learning, and caring.
Monday, April 6 we will continue to provide Remote Learning for our students. Remote Learning enables schools to provide continuity of learning and educational opportunities during school closures without the need to make up days at the end of the school year.
The schedule for the remainder of April is as follows:
• Remote Learning:
o April 6-9
o April 14-17
o April 21-24
o April 28-30
• Teacher Planning:
o April 13
o April 20
o April 27
There will not be any Remote Learning for students on Teacher Planning days.
Please see the Lincoln-Way 210 Remote Learning Plan that was created in collaboration with the LWEA and agreed upon on March 31, 2020.
If your student is unable to participate in Remote Learning due to a lack of technology, please contact PPS or building administration.
For any student enrolled in the Free/Reduced Lunch program who is in need of meals, please email student name, ID number, and building of attendance to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The health and wellness of our students, staff, and community continues to be our highest priority during this challenging time.
