COVID-19 Closure Update_new

You may view this message in video form here. I would like to begin by thanking all of our families and employees for their patience and cooperation as we launched E-Learning in District 205 yesterday.

This afternoon, Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker extended the closure of schools across the state through the end of the month of April. This was not unexpected, and the District has been busy planning to transition from Act of God Days to extended Remote Learning Days. We will elicit feedback and learn from our first several days of implementation and will continue to work to improve our service to you.

Dear D205 Families and Staff,

You may view this message in video form here. I would like to begin by thanking all of our families and employees for their patience and cooperation as we launched E-Learning in District 205 yesterday.

This afternoon, Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker extended the closure of schools across the state through the end of the month of April. This was not unexpected, and the District has been busy planning to transition from Act of God Days to extended Remote Learning Days. We will elicit feedback and learn from our first several days of implementation and will continue to work to improve our service to you.

The Illinois State Board of Education is recommending that all assessment during Remote Learning Days should be for the purpose of feedback. You can expect a communication soon with additional information on assessment and grades, special education services, and other pertinent information, including resources from our Student Services staff that may be helpful to families during this challenging time. 

We will continue to make meals available to our families in need and work collaboratively with our local government agencies and health care providers to serve our community.  As one example, I am proud of our schools’ recent efforts to provide supplies such as sanitary wipes, gloves and goggles to Edward-Elmhurst Hospital.

People also are becoming increasingly concerned about the continuation of athletics and end-of-year activities, such as prom, graduation, and summer school. We will begin planning for a variety of possibilities immediately, but we do not have enough information to provide details or make final decisions at this point.

The one thing I do know is: strict adherence to the social distancing measures and sanitation guidelines such as regular hand washing will help prevent illness and help all of us return to normal sooner rather than later.

In closing, I just want to tell you all how much I miss our students, staff and families. Please continue to take care and stay well.

Sincerely,

Dr. David Moyer
Superintendent
Elmhurst Community Unit School District 205

Estimadas Familias y Personal de D205

Puede ver este mensaje en video aquí. Quisiera comenzar agradeciendo a todas nuestras familias y empleados por su paciencia y cooperación ayer cuando lanzamos E-Learning en el Distrito 205.

Esta tarde, el gobernador de Illinois, JB Pritzker, extendió el cierre de escuelas en todo el estado hasta finales de abril. Esto no fue inesperado y el Distrito ha estado ocupado planeando la transición de los Días del Acto de Dios a los Días de Aprendizaje Remoto extendido. Obtendremos retroalimentación y aprenderemos de nuestros primeros días de implementación y continuaremos trabajando para mejorar nuestro servicio.

La Junta de Educación del Estado de Illinois recomienda que todas las evaluaciones durante los Días de Aprendizaje Remoto se realicen con fines de retroalimentación. Espere usted por un comunicado pronto con información adicional sobre evaluaciones y calificaciones, servicios de educación especial y otra información pertinente, incluidos los recursos de nuestro personal de Servicios Estudiantiles que pueden ser útiles para las familias durante este difícil  momento. 

Continuaremos haciendo que los alimentos estén disponibles para nuestras familias necesitadas y trabajaremos en colaboración con nuestras agencias gubernamentales locales y proveedores de atención médica para servir a nuestra comunidad. Como ejemplo, estoy orgulloso de los esfuerzos recientes de nuestras escuelas para proporcionar suministros tales como toallitas sanitarias, guantes y gafas protectoras al Hospital Edward-Elmhurst.

Las personas también están cada vez más preocupadas por la continuación de las actividades de atletismo y las actividades de fin de año, como el baile de graduación, la graduación y la escuela de verano. Comenzaremos a planificar una variedad de posibilidades de inmediato, pero no tenemos suficiente información para proporcionar detalles o tomar decisiones finales en este momento.

Lo único que sí estoy seguro de saber es: del estricto cumplimiento de las medidas de distanciamiento social y las pautas de saneamiento, como el lavarse las manos regularmente, ayudará a prevenir enfermedades y nos ayudará a todos a volver a la normalidad más temprano que tarde.

Para terminar, solo quiero decirles cuánto extraño a nuestros estudiantes, personal y familias. Continúe cuidándose y manténgase sano.

Sinceramente,

Dr. David Moyer
El Superintendente
Elmhurst Community Unit School District 205
