WHITELEY WILDCAT UPDATE

VIRTUAL LEARNING AND ATTENDANCE
I am sure many of you still have questions in regards to what they can expect with virtual learning. Our school day will begin with our normal start time of 8:40 a.m. (Monday-Friday). Our teachers will take attendance and begin a day of learning. The learning day will end at our normal end time of 3:25 for Monday -Thursday and 2:25 on Fridays. You can find more information about virtual learning, and what a typical day will look like on our district website.
The district expectation is that students are in attendance for the school day. The district will be following the attendance guidelines that have been laid out by the Illinois State Board of Education. Teachers will be taking attendance first thing in the morning, just as if they were in person. After their morning attendance, teachers will take attendance during each of the live instructional sessions.
Our PTA realizes that some parents were unable to attend the yearbook pick-up in June. They will have a yearbook pick-up on August 28th from 5:00-7:00 p.m. The pick-up will take place at 1170 Dresden Ct; Hoffman Estates, IL. 60192. Yearbooks will only be available for those that ordered yearbooks. Please remember to wear masks and keep social distancing in mind during the pick-up.
We will continue to share pictures and videos with parents though Facebook. In fact, I am sure many of you will be taking Back to School pictures of your children. You can send those pictures to Mrs. Rivera and we will post them on our school Facebook page.
