Parent Update - Return To In-Person Learning Begins February 23, 2021
The purpose of this message is to share with you the learning options that Brookwood School District 167 is offering for the remainder of the year. Beginning February 23, 2021 parents will have the option to send their child(ren) back to school for in-person learning for full-time instruction. However, parents may choose to continue the remote learning model for the remainder of the school year.
Option #1: In-Person Learning: This option provides students with full-time learning at their school. In order to provide in-person learning, Brookwood School District 167 is committed to implementing all required safety and cleaning protocols outlined by IDPH/CDC. If schools should be required to shift back to Remote Learning (due to current health metrics/increased positivity rates), students can expect to return to the remote structure they have been receiving since the start of the school year. In the event this learning option is not meeting your child’s needs, you may revert back to the Remote Learning Model by notifying your child’s Principal.
Option #2: Remote Learning: With this option, parents are choosing to have learning delivered 100% on-line/remotely. Students who are enrolled in this option should expect to engage with their teachers during normal school hours on a daily basis and receive live (synchronous) instruction for 2.5 hours per day. This matches the current format. All students who are enrolled in Option #2 will experience all subject areas and the current online tools and resources will remain in place. By selecting this option, you will not be able to change your selection and your child will remain in remote learning for the remainder of the school year.
*Please Note: For both options, devices will be provided to all Brookwood School District 167 students. Also with both options, students can rely on Brookwood School District 167 for food service, social-emotional wellness, and special education services. Furthermore, both options emphasize safety, educational quality, and parental choice. Please take time to complete the enrollment form so we understand the option that best meets your child needs. We will register your child, for the remainder of the school year, in the specified learning option you select.
