The health and safety of our students and staff is our top priority. Elementary School District 159 has been carefully monitoring developments regrading the global spread of coronavirus (2019-nCoV), and Superintendent Dr. Alfred wants to share the steps we're taking to keep our schools safe.
Governor Pritzker announced all schools in Illinois are closed beginning Tuesday, March 17th thru Tuesday, April 7th, due to the spread of COVID-19. On Monday, March 16th all Elementary School District 159 schools will be closed to students, as we prepare for the remote learning plan. This is a non-attendance day for students. District employees are expected to report to work. Students in need of electronic devices will be provided with a Chromebook to participate in remote learning plan activities. To receive a Chromebook for your child, complete the online Chromebook loaner form or you can complete the form at our child's school. Chromebooks will be distributed on Monday, March 16th between 1pm - 6pm and on Tuesday from 9am-12pm. At these times, parents will also have the opportunity to retrieve their child's belongings.
