Remote Learning Days

Letter from Dr. Friedman 03/31/2020

Dear Parents and Community Members:

I hope this message finds you and your families safe and well. Today, Illinois Gov. JB Pritzker announced that remote learning in Illinois will be extended through APRIL 30th in order to slow down the spread of COVID-19. During this time, on-site learning will remain suspended but our schools’ commitment to learning and education will remain open and learning will continue for all students in the form we are presently delivering it in.

While it is not ideal, we want to assure you that at Emmons, our teachers and staff are fully engaged and willing to take on this new challenge and push forward with remote learning, engaging with students and continuing with our food distribution program. In order to plan for this continuation of services, staff will engage in Remote Learning Planning Days on  APRIL 6th and APRIL 20th.  During these planning days, teachers will spend time developing lessons and students will not be engaged in formal learning. Instead, students can catch up on assignments, work on projects, redo assignments, and work independently on the enrichment opportunities provided by specials teachers.  I also want to remind you that we are still honoring the school calendar.  Therefore remote learning will not be in session on APRIL 10th and APRIL 13th.

I know this is not the school year that any of us imagined, but I want to thank you for your patience and understanding as we have dealt with this unprecedented situation together. 

It’s important we continue to work together and support our students. Thanks again.
