Conference and Report Card Reminders

Dear Jane Addams Families:

Our warmest thanks for your constant support and warm notes. Your thanks, kind words, and collaboration through continual challenges have encouraged each of us at Jane Addams.

It is hard to believe the first trimester has come to an end. Our goal is to provide ongoing communication, instruction, support and materials to our students as needed.

Additional Material Pick-up for VIRTUAL students only is scheduled ~ November 23rd OR November 24 from 8-3pm. (all grades)

Simply call the office if you are not able to come on November 23rd or November 24th and your materials can be available prior. Please note...the District is closed on November 25 - November 29 for the Thanksgiving Break.

As a reminder, your child's conference is scheduled virtually for November 23rd OR November 24. If you do not remember the time/date for this virtual conference. email or call your child's teacher and he or she will gladly resend you the link and the date/time.

Your child's report card will be available digitally after 5pm:

Gr 1-6: November 20

Kindergarten: February 5

You will need to refer to the parent portal you used to register your child for the 2020-21 school year. Directions for viewing the report card can be found here:

Current Adaptive Pause Guidance from District Office November 30- December 4

At its November 11 meeting, the Board of Education approved a plan to implement an Adaptive Pause across the District the week after Thanksgiving, implementing fully remote instruction Monday, November 30 through Friday, December 4.

The plan to pause in-person learning November 30-December 4 stems from an anticipated increase in cases shortly after the Thanksgiving holiday. Pausing the week after the Thanksgiving holiday would mean infected individuals would become symptomatic while outside of our schools, reducing infectious spread within our buildings.

If this were to be adjusted, we will be sure to let you know.

Operation North Pole ~ Donations of winter coats to Jane Addams Students

Information was sent home this week regarding donations of winter coats to students at Jane Addams Elementary. We thank Operation North Pole for their generous gift.

Our staff has been working together to determine at their grade level the best time to distribute them. Due to some staffing challenges, distribution has varied. We appreciate your patience.

If you do not want the coat that has been reserved for your child, you may donate this back to school or to another student. We understand and support your family circumstance.

If your child has recently made a switch to concurrent or virtual attendance, feel free to come to the school office to collect your child's coat. It can also be collected on November 23rd or November 24th.
