PEPS Mini Virtual Meeting

Supporting Children with Remote/Hybrid Learning Mini Meeting

Open to all District 57 families and sponsored by PEPS

Our PEPS meetings are typically reserved for parents of students who receive special education services. However, since so many of our students are experiencing similar issues, the PEPS group wanted to open our meeting to all District 57 families.


Please join us for a conversation on how to support your child with remote learning and hybrid learning. How do you support your child with screen fatigue? What schedule or structures have you tried and found success with? How can you prepare your child for in-person learning, including wearing a mask for extended periods, fewer peers in class, use of plexiglass dividers, etc?

What is PEPS?

PEPS (Partnering with Educators and Parents to Support student needs) is a networking group for parents of children with special needs in any of the District 57 schools. At our meetings we will support each other by sharing our experiences, discussing topics of interest and addressing questions and concerns. We will gather information from other parents and/or professionals so that we can better support our children in their education and community.
