Lincolnshire-Prairie View School District 103 - Mar 31, 2020

Remote Learning Extends to April 30

No School Friday, April 3

Dear D103 families,


As you know, District 103 has been closed for the past several weeks to help prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) in our community. Today, March 31, 2020, Governor Pritzker announced an extension to the school closures in our state. The current plan is to keep schools closed until at least April 30, 2020.


The closures will continue to affect all District 103 programming, including before-and after-school activities, all athletic and extracurricular practices and competitions, and all weekend events.


To help prepare for the extended remote learning period, on Friday, April 3 our teachers will participate in a Remote Learning Planning Day. Assignments will not be emailed for Friday and teachers will not conduct office hours so that they may be fully present in the planned district, building and team meetings. On Friday, your children may use that time to complete any missing assignments, go on a virtual field trip to one of Chicago’s many fine museums, choose a creative activity from Common Sense Media’s Daily Activities Page, or choose one of Scholastic’s Learn at Home Activities. Need a break from screens? Crayola has created a list of 52 no tech activities.


We have created a Remote Learning website with supportive resources for our families. We have also updated our Coronavirus educational website that provides timely information on COVID-19.


Additionally, our Exceptional Learners Collaborative, 990 Corporate Woods Parkway, Vernon Hills, is open on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. to provide families in need of lunches and food supplies with meals.


We know there are many lingering questions that parents and students have regarding future events that occur in May and during the summer. Please know that we are working very hard to maintain and/or postpone as many events as possible rather than cancelling events that are weeks and months away.


This has been a challenging time for the entire D103 community. We want to thank you for your patience and understanding as we work together. We will continue to keep you updated regarding school operations as they change.


Once again, thank you.


Sincerely,


Scott Warren, Ed.D

Superintendent of D103 Schools
