Divine Providence School
July 16, 2021 Home and School Summer Connection
First day of school is August 19th with a 1:30 dismissal
Last school year, our protocols worked. Our students stayed safe from the transmission of COVID19. For this reason, as a reminder, we will only conduct in person learning. Should a student still test negative would be the only time the entire class may need to pivot to remote learning.
Please see below if your child has medical forms to turn in this school year. Forms not returned in a timely manner can result in an interruption of attendance as this is a State of Illinois requirement.
A few reminders for this summer so they do not catch up with you come August:
Student iPads and Bluetooth devices
New for the 2021-2022 school year- Students may not bring any bluetooth devices. This includes keyboards or AIR PODS.
They school iPad should be exactly that. Used for school only. Students may not use messaging at any time, for any reason during the school day. We recommend taking messaging apps off their school iPad. It is also recommended that your child do not have games or game apps on they school iPad.
What are the requirements for my student's iPad?
There are several iPads available- iPad mini, iPad Air, iPad Pro. When shopping for your child's iPad, they do not need the biggest and best device. We recommend to purchase a device that has as much storage as you can afford. While the apps, etc that they will be using do not use much storage, the updates from Apple to run the apps does take storage.
Students are tempted to change their hair color over the summer. Please remember that your child's hair color needs to be their natural color upon return to school. This includes students that may have had "natural" highlights added to their hair.
Cell phones may not be used during the school day and must be kept in backpacks. This is the same with smart watches. Smart watches may not be worn during the school day
Apps your student should have on their iPad may include, not limited to: Google Classroom, iXL, and i-Ready. Teachers may request additional apps when school begins.
All volunteers must meet all these requirements to volunteer with children in our parish and school. Click on each one for more information.

There are many reasons people may need help right now. Maybe it's job loss or illness. Whatever the reason for the need, the Society of St. Vincent De Paul can help.

All information is kept strictly confidential.
All students in K-7 received this work by their last day. In case it gets lost or if you are new to DP, this is the place to go! All students are expected to complete this work over the summer.
