Dear Kahok Family:
As we wind down the first semester for the 2020-2021 school year, we want to provide a quick reminder regarding the option families have to change their child(ren)’s instructional learning plan from Remote/Exclusive Online (i.e. at home Remote/Online instruction provided by CUSD10 Staff) to Hybrid/Blended (i.e. some days each week at school for in-person instruction, some days each week at home for Remote/Online instruction) OR from Hybrid/Blended to Remote/Exclusive Online.
We ask that ONLY parents wishing to change their current selection (chosen for quarter 2) do so by putting their request in writing to their school principal for each child OR complete the Google Form below.
Written requests to the building principal or the completion of the Google Form must be submitted by a parent or guardian by December 15, 2020 at 4:00PM for each student requesting a change to their Quarter 2 plan selection.
Written requests should include the learning plan choice, student’s name (first and last), the student’s grade level, the parent/guardian name (first and last) and parent/guardian contact information. Please understand this selection will be in effect from Monday, January 4, 2021 through Friday, March 12.
For families wishing to CHANGE their current learning environment selection (chosen for Quarter 2), please forward your written request as outlined above OR click the following link to complete the form by December 15 (4:00PM).
Please note that this form should only be completed if you are requesting a change from your choice selection made for the previous academic quarter. (For example: If your child was on the Hybrid/Blended plan during quarter 2 and you wish to continue the Hybrid/Blended plan for quarter 3, you DO NOT need to complete a change form).
Parents/guardians should understand that students will be expected to follow the remote learning expectations set by the District/State in order to be counted as present and earn grades during an exclusive Remote Learning Plan or on days of Remote Learning during the Hybrid/Blended Learning Plan. In order to access the instruction and curriculum via Remote Learning through the school district, the student must attend scheduled Google Meets sessions, participate in Google Classroom assignments and schedule individual meetings and conferences with their teacher(s).
Families are reminded that in accordance with the Illinois Department of Public Health and Illinois State Board of Education requirements, students must be screened each day for COVID-19 symptoms and other criteria prior to entering a school building or entering a school bus.
- Parents must screen their child each day prior to sending their child to school. If your child does not meet all the following criteria as outlined on the COVID-19 Daily Student Certification Checklist, you must keep your child at home and notify the school of your child’s absence.
- Your child will not be permitted to return to school until he/she meets all return-to school criteria or your child’s physician has released your child to return to school, whichever is applicable. If your child is experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, you should consult your health care provider for a diagnosis and treatment
Thank you for your continued cooperation and support during the first academic semester of the 2020-2021 school year. As always, if you have any questions regarding your child(ren)’s education, please reach out to your child(ren)’s teacher(s) and/or school principal.
