Dear IHSCA Family,
While we know this is not what we were hoping for, we know that this decision was made in the best interest of the health and safety of our community. Governor Pritzker announced today that Illinois schools will be out for the remainder of the 2019/2020 school year. This does not mean that we are done with learning and some of the other items that still need to be taken care of. Remote learning will continue. We are expecting more direction from CPS regarding grades, promotion, and graduation.
As soon as we are given that information we will update our families. Please stay safe and stay tuned to further updates.
Launching Our Remote Learning Plan
Our school along with CPS guidance has been working around the clock to create and implement remote learning plans that will meet the unique needs of every student. We thank our dedicated teams for taking on this monumental task and applaud everyone for successfully completing years of work in just a few weeks.
Our school has been busy connecting with families about what remote learning will look like for their children. To ensure greater access to virtual learning opportunities, IHSCA has distributed chromebooks to students in need and identified by their teachers. Chomebooks will continue to be handed out through April 16th. We have also created the attached Internet Guide, also featured on our Remote Learning page to help families explore how they can get connected to the Internet for remote learning.
Continued Meal Service
We remain committed to providing our families with free, healthy meals for as long as our school closure lasts. To give families the most consistent experience when picking up food and to better support school staff, we continue to serve from 9:00AM to 1:00PM at the IHSCA main entrance.
We urge all families to visit https://www.ihsca.org/ for the most up-to-date information on remote learning and to access valuable remote learning resources for their children.
We are all in a journey in uncharted territory. It’s natural to feel some anxiety, but we know that if we work together, we can provide our children with the education they need to remain on track and continue growing until we can all be together again. We thank you for your partnership and look forward to starting this new chapter as one IHSCA family.
Dr. Elias Alonzo, Principal, and Brittany Walk, Assistant Principal.
