Week at Windsor 4.6.20

Looking back and ahead at Windsor news and happenings...

Dear Windsor Families,

It is difficult to believe we are into the month of April!

Thank you to all who were able to participate in our virtual Spirit Week. It was fun to catch some different glimpses of staff and students alike!

Today, Monday 4/6, marks Day 10 of our Windsor At Home/Remote Learning Plan. Our plans will continue to now be posted on our Windsor web page under Families. Teachers are finalizing Days 11-13 plans, which will be Tuesday-Thursday of this week. We will be sending them out to families as soon as possible. We've provided more information regarding at home/remote learning below.

Please keep reaching out to us or to your child's teacher, if you need anything this week. We are here to help and do all that we can to support you.

As a reminder, there is no "school" for students on Friday 4/10 this week or Monday 4/13 of next week.

Warmest regards,

Piper Boston, Principal @PrincipalBoston

Lindsay Anastacio, Assistant Principal @lindzana

Remote Learning Days 11-13

Dr. Bein sent this letter to families on Friday, April 3, 2020. We are so pleased that as a district and a school we have been offering at home/remote learning opportunities since the start of closings. As a reminder, Days 1-5 were planned by our district-level coordinators so that students had learning opportunities right away when we closed.

Our Windsor team has planned Days 6-13. We will email before or by Tuesday morning at 8:45 AM for the next learning plan. You will continue to see a mixture of classroom-related review and instruction. All teachers have been exploring additional ways to connect with their students in different ways and through different learning platforms.

Having just received updated state guidance this past week, our district teachers and administrators have been meeting to plan even more for the long term. This means that learning Days 14 beyond may still look different. You will continue to see our remote learning plans evolve. Thank you for your ongoing understanding, support, and partnership!

ABC/25 Get Burbed!

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) and the unique impact and uncertainty it continues to pose to our community, we have made the decision, with the support of Superintendent Dr. Lori Bein, to cancel the ABC/25 Get Burbed Challenge. This was a difficult decision to make but the safety and well-being of our race participants, volunteers, staff, and spectators is always a top priority.

The ABC/25 Foundation still needs your support in order to fully fund teacher grants in the upcoming school year. There are three ways you can still help. Every dollar earned goes directly back into our schools to bring students projects and programs that foster innovation and creativity.

  1. Register as a virtual runner and run/walk your own 5K or 1 Mile on April 25, 2020! Post a picture on Twitter and tag ABC/25 Get Burbed Challenge to show your support! Register here!
  2. Statefarm Agent, Jennifer Burnidge, will make a $10 donation to the ABC/25 Foundation for every person who completes an insurance quote in the month of April. When calling in for a quote, be sure to mention Quotes for Good and the ABC/25 Foundation for the quote to qualify. Call today! (847) 253-5678
  3. Make a donation directly to the Foundation. All donations are tax deductible. Click here to donate.

We are already looking forward to the 2021 ABC/25 Get Burbed Challenge. Event updates and information are available at abc25challlenge.org and through social media on Facebook, Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.

In the meantime, we encourage all of our participants, volunteers, event staff, partners and vendors to keep themselves and their loved ones safe and healthy during these unprecedented times.

Thank you for your understanding and continued support!
