Four Priorities - Preparing for Remote Learning During COVID-19 Closure - #112Leads
During the COVID-19 driven school closures, we have four priorities guiding our work: Our four priorities in this evolving pandemic crisis: Priority one - feed our families and children Priority two - account for the extended safety, health, and welfare of our 4500 students and staff Priority three - communicate clearly Priority four - e-Learning As part of the Governor’s order, he announced that all schools in Illinois will remain closed, with a new tentative reopening date of April 8. On March 12, I ordered all schools in North Shore School District 112 closed until further notice, with a possible reopening date of April 14, this is still our tentative plan. We recognize that this development of the stay at home order may raise questions about the impact on students, staff, and families as well as the school’s vital role of providing meals to students and families while schools are closed. Thanks to the outstanding work of the Moraine Township Food Pantry (and countless volunteers) our children will be fed this week during spring break. District 112 foodservice partner Organic Life will resume meal preparation and distribution operations on 3/30/2020. In this podcast episode, we review what we're doing with respect to preparation, communication, and transition to Remote Learning (priority 4).
