Remote Learning Days will start on Tuesday, March 31st.  Please read Superintendent Dr. Fleming’s letter here.

Tuesday, March 31, 2020 through April 7, 2020 will be Remote Learning Days

Per ISBE, March 31 through April 7 are labeled as Remote Learning Days, previously labeled E-Learning Days. Remote Learning will be implemented through teachers utilizing Google Classroom. All of our staff members understand that many variables will come into play as Remote Learning is implemented. I cannot stress enough that our goal is to provide meaningful learning experiences for your children, without creating additional stress and undue burden for our families. The expectation is that everyone will try to do their best throughout this process. If problems arise, please do not hesitate to contact your teacher or principal for assistance.  Here are some important points pertaining to Remote Learning.

  • Teachers will be on their computers and available/accessible to students between the hours of 8:30 am to 1:30 pm.
  • Teachers are responsible for communicating assignments to students on a daily basis via Google Classroom.
  • During Remote Learning Days, any live instruction or video produced by an employee of Worth 127 School Districtis prohibited to be recorded or posted on social media by anyone other than the author without the express written permission of Worth 127 Schools.
  • Students will be required to complete an exit slip each day that will count for attendance.

For parents trying to help students get in to Google Classroom, there is a Google Classroom icon on every student’s shelf on the bottom of the Chromebook screen, or you can go to classroom.google.com.  You can find more information on joining a Google Classroom class here.
