Some teachers are using them as part of math and are handed out and when finished picked back up...that's fine and engaging for the kids. That will still be allowed as they belong to the teacher and are monitored.
Family conferences will be once again held remotely this fall using the Google Meet platform. There will also be an option for telephone conferences if families elect. Each ”Virtual” Family Conference will be scheduled for 15 minutes and will be scheduled via the Skyward Family Conference Scheduler. Please see the schedule below for the time line of scheduling conferences.

Drop Off and Pick Up
Please do not bring pets to pick up or drop off your child. We have children with allergies, but we have also had instances where the dogs have gotten loose and really caused problems. I love my dog too, but please leave them at home.
Please note the drop off locations and where you are allowed to park and get out of your car.
Families will be notified if their child is found to have been in close contact with a CoVid positive case at school. If your child is found to be a close contact then they will have to quarantine for a period of time. More information will be given to you regarding your particular circumstances. Students may also be quarantined due to showing symptoms.
When students are quarantined, they will be given work for someone to pick up in the foyer of school. Students will get in invitation to a Homework Help Google Classroom to log on between 3:30 and 4:30 to get assistance from a Hannum staff member for work that they are struggling with. They just need to log on during that time and someone will be available to help them while they are quarantining.
Hannum Afterschool Clubs
We understand that sometimes things happen and kids are picked up late. That's fine. It's when it becomes habitual that we have a problem. If you child is picked up late 3 times (without a phone call or any notice) they are out of the club. We have many students that want to participate, and we can't always accommodate them, so we do have a wait list.
If children are picked up habitually late....even with a phone call, I will be making a phone call to let you know how much longer we can keep your child. There have been times that either myself or my staff have missed appointments waiting on parents. Please be on time, clubs are a whole hour after school should be over.
The SHIELD Illinois program is a quick, simple, and non-invasive COVID-19 screening test. Students that have opted-in to the program will provide a small amount of saliva that is tested at a professional lab. Results of the test are then provided to families and our school district within the days following. The program offers students the opportunity to reduce or waive quarantine requirements in the event of close contact with a positive case or if the student demonstrates symptoms. You can opt-in to the program at any time by accessing Online Forms in Skyward Family Access. More information about the SHIELD Illinois program can be found at: d123.org/shield-illinois-testing-program
