Remote Learning Continues

Schools Closed for Remainder of School Year
Posted on 04/17/2020
Governor Pritzker announced April 17 that Illinois’ school buildings will remain closed through the end of the 2019-2020 school year to slow the spread of COVID-19 and save lives. This announcement was not unexpected, and the staff of District 28 is committed to providing the best education we can under our remote learning conditions. We will continue to work through the implications of the closure as we proceed with this year’s learning and plan for the 2020-21 school year.

What follows are a few quick pieces of information we can share now.

D28 Remote Learning
Remote learning will continue. As we have expanded and grown through the first four weeks of learning from home, our administrators and teacher teams will continue to work together to engage students and provide feedback on their learning. I am so proud of all the students and families for the importance you have placed on learning.

Access to Buildings
We know that many teachers and students have items they would like to pick up from the schools before the end of the school year. As soon as we have a plan to safely allow people into the buildings, we will share the details.

End-of-Year Events
We are developing plans to honor our eighth-grade students, and principals will explore options for celebrating 5th graders as they move on to NBJH next year.

As the remainder of the year unfolds, we are keeping our focus on education and the health of our students, staff and families. We will provide ongoing, up-to-date information as we are able.
