Student Attendance during Virtual Learning

With the nature of virtual learning, there will be a combination of synchronous and asynchronous learning sessions, including scheduled small group sessions. All live sessions will be recorded and will be made available to students and parents if they are unable to attend. On a daily basis for student attendance, we will be assuming positive attendance for each student. If a student is not present for a live lesson and/or does not engage with assignments on Seesaw throughout the day, the student will be marked absent. Staff will maintain communication to follow up on items that may have been missed during the absence.

If a student is unable to participate in virtual learning for the day, please contact the office at 630-301-5002 to report their absence.

First Week Highlights

It was so great to see so many of you this week via pick up and via Zoom! We were able to capture some of our first week highlights below!

Updated School Supply Lists

School supply lists have been updated to identify items that will be helpful to have at home for the Virtual Learning Experience. Please note that many items are the same for different grade levels and can easily be shared by siblings. You likely may already have some of the supplies at home. https://resources.finalsite.net/images/v1596808466/sd129org/lx4q51ifanitll6rdrwp/supplyflyerVirturalELEM-20-21.pdf
