GK Parents,

The staff and I would like to recognize what a tremendous job all of the students have been doing in the classroom and when remote.  The students in person are wearing masks, washing hands, and maintaining safe distances.  When students are remote they are sitting up right, engaged and with cameras on.  Please remind your student to continue exhibiting these behaviors.

We will continue grade level and PE/Encore newsletters this year so families can stay updated on grade level happenings.  The links to the Weekly Newsletters are located at the bottom of the message each week.  

Important Information Updates:  

  1. Students must ride their own bus home.  They may not go home with friends even with parent/guardian permission at this time.  Buses have assigned seats to allow for social distancing on the buses.

  2. If students are having technical difficulties during class, please have your student email their teacher.  The student should then meet with their teacher remotely during the 1:45-2:15pm time frame to get caught up on what they missed.  Students who are not in class remotely due to technical issues will be marked “absent”.  When the student follows up with the teacher and meets with them during the 1:45-2:15 time frame the teacher will adjust the attendance to “present” for the class period they missed due to technical difficulties.  Please contact the office with any questions at 815-784-5222.

  3. Information on the Social Emotional Screener to be administered on September 18th is attached.  

As always, please contact me with any questions at or call me at 815-784-5222.
