All students will begin the first day of school on Tuesday, August 25, participating in remote learning. Although this is not what we envisoned for our families and their children for the start of the school year, our number one priority must be the safety of our students, teachers and staff.
Remote Learning from the Classroom
During this time, District 91 employees will report to their respective district facilities each school day to focus on the education of your children. This will allow our educators to utilize building and classroom resources and instructional tools to provide your students with structured and engaged remote learning opportunities.
Remote Learning will be Different
There have been very specific changes made with regards to grading, teaching, learning and attendance. Students will be graded on assignments that they complete while learning remotely, which will result in students receiving progress reports and report cards. Teachers will be teaching grade level standards and will not just be focusing on mitigating learning loss. Attendance will be taken every day class is in session.
Remote Learning Channel for Parents
To assist families in preparing for remote learning, we have added a Remote Learning channel for parents on the District 91 website. The Remote Learning/Parents channel includes a comprehensive remote learning guide, sample remote learning schedules for all grade levels, expectations for remote learning, forms and digital learning tools. To access this channel, please go to the Remote Learning for Parents.
We realize the serious challenges our families in Forest Park face during this unprecedented time and we want to thank each one of you for your continued understanding and support as we work to keep our students, staff, families and community safe during the coming months.
We are all in this together!
Lou Cavallo, Superintendent of Schools
