Corona Virus (COVID-19) Information
Good afternoon Minooka 201 Students and Families,
Yesterday afternoon Governor Pritzker extended the suspension of onsite school through April 30, 2020. This means that Minooka CCSD 201 will continue with our use of Remote Instruction eLearning Days throughout the month of April, with school scheduled to resume on Friday, May 1, 2020.
We are currently in our second day of Remote Instruction and we want to send our thanks and gratitude to the hard working educators, students and families who have worked so hard to adjust and adapt our traditional school practices into a remote learning experience. Some of these live meeting platforms are great ways for students to interact with classmates and friends that we miss seeing in our schools, but parents should be aware that some activities from teachers could include live video streaming using platforms such as Zoom or Google Hangouts. Please see the Live Stream Parent Notification for more information. We are all in this together and we will all get through this together. Our cafeteria staff are serving over 325 meals a day to our communities, and we have loaned out over 250 chromebooks to families to help them during Remote Instruction. We encourage you to let us know how we can support our students and families even further. Email us at eLearning@min201.org with any questions and concerns you have.
Also, we have been asked to share this Grundy County Health Department Press Release - 3-31-2020 . Please, please maintain the appropriate social distancing everyone.
Schools across our state and nation are all adapting and evolving our remote learning plans and protocols each and every day. To aid our schools in planning for remote instruction, we will be scheduling Remote Instruction Planning Days on April 13 and April 24, 2020. There will be no student activities on these days, much like a Teacher Institute Day in our traditional school calendar. Also, please remember that Friday, April 10th was a No Student Attendance Day, so no Remote Instruction eLearning will take place on that day.
If your circumstances have changed and you would like to start utilizing our lunch service pickup at Minooka Junior High School or Jones Elementary, please sign up using the Lunch Pickup Form. Can't drive to pickup lunch? Contact us individually.
We are also planning a second day of chromebook loans to our K-4 families. Look for more information later this week.
Keep engaged, keep reading, and stay safe everyone. #201eLearns
