Dear Central 51 families,

We appreciate parents reaching out to the district for clarification on assignments and attendance.   The district is committed to communicating information as it becomes available from the ISBE. We had originally planned to do official e-learning days for all days March 16 – March 20 and on March 30.  On Sunday, the ISBE announced a different directive.  While districts are expected to provide learning opportunities for students during the mandated closure (March 17-30 not including spring break), we cannot require “attendance” online or otherwise by students.  Materials assigned during this time cannot be counted for grades.  They are simply provided to continue with learning.  We hope that parents will encourage their children to complete the provided learning opportunities.  Please use the material offered online (for older grades) and the packets already sent home (for younger grades).  Teachers will still be available to answer questions via email. If the mandated closure is extended, more information will be provided on materials. 

**Please note that the assignments given on March 16 are still required and will be graded.  Assignments are due on the first day students return to school.

Thank you for your flexibility and understanding as we continue to work together to provide the best possible experience for our students. Be safe. Take care. #wegotthis
