Dear Hutsonville Tiger Family:
I hope this message finds you and your families safe and well. As you know, Illinois Gov. JB Pritzker announced that remote learning in Illinois will be extended through April 30 in order to slow down the spread of COVID-19.
During this time, on-site learning will remain suspended but our schools’ commitment to learning and education will continue for all our students in our adjusted format. We encourage students to continue to check in and engage with their teachers and take advantage of agreed upon activities to improve 3rd quarter grades. In addition, as we begin the 4th quarter we will transition to a pass - incomplete system. When the State Superintendent deems that Remote Learning Days are no longer necessary, we will facilitate time for teachers to meet with their colleagues to identify any gaps in curriculum coverage that may have resulted from the transition to Remote Learning. The BOE, administration, and faculty continue to thank all our community members and parents in helping us keep our students engaged and learning.
While it is not ideal, we want to assure you that at Hutsonville CUSD #1, our teachers and staff are fully engaged and will continue to take on this challenge and push forward with remote learning, engaging with students and continuing with our food distribution program. We could not continue our food distribution program without our dedicated staff, OPAA staff, and our wonderful volunteers, we THANK YOU.
I know this is not the school year that any of us imagined, but I want to thank you for your patience and understanding as we have dealt with this unprecedented situation together.
As a recap, here are the three priorities for our leadership and planning moving forward:
Priority 1 - Feed and care for the extended safety, health, and welfare of students, families, non-student children, staff, and community at large.
Priority 2 - Communicate clearly; share coherent, organized and controlled messages with your staff, students and community.
Priority 3 - Provide for the continuity of learning in Illinois
It’s important we continue to work together and support our students. Thanks again.
Julie L. Kraemer, Superintendent
Hutsonville CUSD #1
