Student Remote Learning

Our goal is to minimize disruption and confusion for families by encouraging school communities to continue using familiar materials, while also setting clear thresholds for what students, educators, and school communities should strive to accomplish during remote learning.


During remote learning, we expect that students and families stay engaged in learning. Students will be offered both digital and non-digital learning options, as well as dedicated “office hours,” where students and families can receive support from teachers via Google Meet, phone, or email. Remote Learning packets are also available at cps.edu/remotelearning

District Enrichment Educational Resources

Families, parents and caregivers,


Below you will find educational resource packets organized by grade level. These packets include a range of activities that students can work on at home independently, with family members, or with other adults. Some activities may require guidance from an adult to get started. Resources are categorized into two types:


-Independent Projects

These projects cover a range of different topics and skills. They may be spread out over multiple days.

- Enrichment Activities

These activities are organized into Read, Write, Move, Design, and Solve categories so you can engage with your child in many different ways while at home.

Some of these options are digital and require Internet access.


Students may work through these resources over multiple days and in any order. If you are unable to print these materials or use them digitally, you can go to any school-based food distribution site and pick up a printed packet.

Street Parking/ Estacionamiento

We are asking for everyone’s cooperation in regards to the safety of our students.  Please keep in mind that it is illegal to park around the sides of the school, it is illegal to double park and it is illegal to park in the designated area for the bus pick up/drop off (30th between the Annex and New Building).  Please keep in mind that children are crossing the streets and running between parked cars, which poses a huge safety risk for all.  In addition, due to the congestion of double parked cars, it creates a very difficult situation for our staff trying to get into the parking lot.  Please note that parents cannot drive into the parking lot to wait for students.  Police will be called and tickets will be issued if parked illegally.


Estamos pidiendo la colaboración de todos en respecto a la seguridad de nuestros estudiantes.  Por favor, tenga en cuenta que es illegal estacionarse en los lados alrededor de la escuela, es illegal estacionarse en doble fila y es illegal estacionarse en el area designada para la recogida del autobus (30 entre el Anexo y el edificio Nuevo).  Tenga en cuenta que los niños cruzan las calles y corren entre los autos estacionados, lo que representa un gran riesgo de seguridad para todos.  Además, debido a la congestión de autos estacionados en doble fila, crea una situación muy dificl para nuestro personal que intenta ingresar al estacionamiento.  Tenga en cuenta que los padres no pueden conducir en el estacionamiento para esperar a los estudiantes.  La policia sera llamada y darán multas si conductores no siguen las reglas.
