Week at Windsor 4.26.20

Looking back and ahead at Windsor news and happenings...

Dear Windsor Families,

We hope this message finds you well. The Sunday sunshine was a welcomed addition to the weekend!


We sent this week's Windsor Remote Learning Plans via email Sunday evening.


During the upcoming days/weeks we will be working on the following to share with families:

  • Alternative Virtual 20-21 Kindergarten Orientation for Incoming Families,
  • Student Materials Pick Up Plans,
  • Windsor 5th to 6th Grade Transition Activities (w/South and Thomas Middle School Staff/Administration),
  • Alternative Virtual 5th Grade Celebration Activities and Events,
  • 20-21 Windsor Registration for All Families,
  • And, more all school activities to keep us connected!


This is just to name a few key projects and focus areas, as spring is always a busy time, when we are wrapping up this school year and looking ahead to next year. More to come.


Wishing you all the best.


Piper Boston, Principal @PrincipalBoston

District 25 COVID-19 Resources Page

This page features many different resources for parents to help deal with the COVID-19 crisis.

https://www.sd25.org/Page/1478


As the Illinois stay at home and school closing order came through on Friday, we just want to highlight the above page once more for families. It contains a number of different local and state resources.


Additionally, the Illinois Department of Human Services launched a free emotional support text line for Illinoisans experiencing stress related to COVID-19: Call4Calm. This isn’t a crisis hotline, but a source of support. If you want to speak to a counselor, text TALK to 552020, or HABLAR for Spanish speakers.


You can also access a wider array of supports using the same number on your mobile phone. Text 552020 with keywords such as “unemployment” or “food” or “shelter” to receive information to help you navigate getting assistance.

Remote Learning Pages

Here is the Windsor Remote Learning Plans for this coming week. You will also always find this link on our main website under Families and Windsor Remote Learning.

School Event Cancelations

All in person events have been canceled as a result of the Illinois School Closing order. More information will be coming out in the upcoming days/weeks around which events we will attempt to still hold virtually for students/or parents.

Keep Calm and Go Outside T-Shirts

D25 families are invited to support the Arlington Heights Council of PTAs Scholarship Fund by purchasing a Keep Calm and Go Outside T-shirt (Winning Design by Sofia Fraser-2nd grader at Dryden Elementary).
