11/13 Message from Dr. April Miller

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Thank you for helping us make our first few months of in person learning a great success! Everyone did their part to keep Field safe for students and staff. Unfortunately, this cannot be said for areas outside of Field. As mentioned in an email I sent yesterday, West Northfield School District 31 School Board decided to take an Adaptive Pause due to the Covid 19 Pandemic, and for Field to begin remote learning on Monday, November 16. We appreciate your continued support as we worked together to ensure our students are safe, healthy, and engaged in learning!

Remote Learning Schedule
Although the Field School Remote Learning Plan was developed based on feedback from students, parents, and staff after spring remote learning, and this plan was approved by our Board of Education in July according to the requirements laid out by the Illinois State Board of Education, we recently surveyed parents, students, and staff on our current plan as well as other options. Because we were unable to discern a clear preference from our stakeholders on the best remote schedule for our students, and because of the short notice, we feel it is in the best interest of our students to maintain as much routine as possible. Therefore, we will not change our daily class schedule at this time and all students will follow our current schedule. However, we will survey stakeholders at the end of this current Adaptive Pause and make necessary adjustments in the event of additional periods of remote learning.

Gradebook Update
We love when parents check grades and work with us to monitor progress. However, we encourage parents to not check every day. Our recommendation is to check on the identified gradebook update days. We will also be having students check grades on those days. Our next update is November 16. If you need assistance accessing Family Skyward, please contact Mrs. Maloney at amaloney@district31.net or 847-313-4449.
