Closure Brings E-Learning to District 146

As you know, District 146 buildings are currently closed due to Governor Pritzker's Stay-at-Home order in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The closure includes the District 146 Administration Center, school buildings, and adjacent playgrounds.

E-Learning began on April 2. Information and Frequently Asked Questions can be found on the District website and each school's website. If you have specific questions about e-Learning, please contact your student's teacher via email.

An update will be sent weekly to offer parents a glimpse into the learning going on across the District and to distribute new information and important reminders as the closure progresses.
All In Illinois
On April 2, Governor JB Pritzker introduced the "All In Illinois" campaign to unite residents across the state to help f latten the curve by staying home and staying safe.

District 146 joins the State of Illinois in asking families to stay home as much as possible. In addition to our buildings being closed to Now, more than ever, we all need to do our part to support our communities. We can slow the spread if we do it together. Our strongest weapon against COVID-19 is you.

Join District 146 and the state of Illinois in being "All In." Please c ommit to stay home, stay safe, and practice social distancing to stay healthy.

Students Take on Learning
at Home
District 146 is extremely proud of our students, families, teachers, and staff for continuing the learning while at home. From practicing math while cooking and baking to P.E. classes via Zoom, we have seen incredible ingenuity from parents and staff to keep learning fun and entertaining for our students.

Each week, we will share inspirational stories and creative ways our students are learning at home. Hopefully, families can incorporate these ideas into their own remote learning!
Seventh grade accelerated ELA students and staff at Central had their first Zoom hangout where they took the time to visit and catch up. Mrs. Franklin has also been hosting daily Zoom read-alouds of two different fiction novels! Meanwhile, seventh grade students have been challenged by their teachers to "guess the mystery teacher" using a collection of photos that describe their teacher!

Elementary Schools: Classroom teachers will share the student attendance link each e-Learning Day with their respective families by 8:30 a.m.
