Willow Parent Bulletin #7

October 16, 2020

Dear Wildcats,

We are so proud of how hard everyone has been working. Today, in some of the classrooms, there were several class pajama parties and a dance party to celebrate. It's amazing how well our youngest students have learned to navigate the technology, record their work and submit it, and appropriately engage with each other. None of this is possible without the dedication of our wildcat families and the Willow staff. Big thanks to everyone!

When your teacher is absent

In the event your teacher is absent for the day, your child will still attend remotely. Their class buddy will do the morning meting. Your child will then have work to do independently for the day in addition to pre-recorded educational videos. The routine for the day should be fairly on par with a normal remote day. If you have any questions or issues that arise on a day the teacher isn't present, please contact the Willow Office.

If your child is absent from remote learning, please continue to call the Office to let us know. The attendance hotline is 708-647-2200.
