Welcome to our September 2020 District Newsletter
Remote Learning Resources
There are a few valuable resources for remote learning we'd like to make you aware of!
- Student Technology Hotline
Students and parents may contact 847-270-9039 if you require assistance with your district-issued device. Hotline representatives are in place and will be able to provide you with assistance in a timely manner.
- Remote Learning Video/Instruction Tutorials
Several video and instructional tutorials are available to parents and students at https://www.rlas-116.org/Page/8210. These resources provide guidance on Canvas, Infinite Campus, Zoom, and more! We greatly appreciate feedback - let us know if you would like to see additional topics covered on this resource page.
As always, please contact your child's teacher or school administration if you have specific questions related to remote learning. We are here to help!
Remote Learning Planning Day on Friday, September 18
Health & Safety Measures at District Offices and Schools
Additionally, effective Monday, September 14, all staff and visitors will be required to complete a health screening, including a temperature check. Any staff or visitor answering yes to COVID-19 screening questions and/or have a temperature of 100.4 or higher will not be permitted inside district offices and schools.
Student Residency Analysis
Verifying residency is an effort to protect taxpayers and district resources by identifying non-residents attending RLAS-116. Illinois law mandates that parents demonstrate residency prior to enrollment in school and allows for periodic verification to validate compliance with the law.
If you have any questions about this process, please contact Eric Apgar, Director of Student Services, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Food Service Program for Students During Remote Learning
On every school day during remote learning, Grab-n-Go meals will be served to RLAS-116 students. Families may pick up meals for registered students 8am-12pm at Beach, Ellis, Indian Hill, Murphy, Village, John T. Magee Middle School, Round Lake Middle School, and Round Lake High School. You do not need to go to your specific school to pick up meals. For example, if you have three children attending three separate schools, you can pick up meals for all three children at one location. When arriving for pick up, families will be asked to provide their child's name and school of attendance.
Additionally, 12 school buses have been placed within the community each school day, 8am-12pm, to serve as mobile meal distribution sites. We are hopeful that this will provide a more convenient service to our families. Mobile meal distribution sites include:
- Countryside Ln, Round Lake Beach
- Nicole Ln & Karen Ln, Round Lake Beach
- Quaker Hollow Ln & Silver Oaks Dr, Round Lake Beach
- Cedar Villas Apartments, Round Lake Beach
- Meadow Green Ln, Round Lake Beach
- Whitewood Park & Hickory Ln, Round Lake
- Beverly Dr & Golfview Ct, Round Lake Beach
- Long Lake Dr & Nasa Cir, Round Lake
- Round Lake Park Village Hall, Round Lake Park
- Rosewood Apartments, Round Lake
- Timber Creek Dr, Round Lake Park
- Wildspring Rd & Weeping Willow Rd, Round Lake
Preschool children will be provided with a monthly bundled pack of non-perishable snacks. Snacks may be picked up at Village Elementary School at the start of each month, 8am-12pm.
If you have questions regarding the Food Service Program, please contact Heather Bennett, Executive Director of Engagement & Community Relations, at email@example.com.
