Superintendent's Message to Parents, July 20, 2020

Parent Message - July 20, 2020

Dear District 27 Parents,

We are sharing more information with you today as promised. We have updated our FAQ section as we are able to provide a definitive answer to the questions that you have submitted. We will be updating this section throughout this week and in the weeks to come. 

We recognize that some parents need additional information to help them make a decision as to their student’s attendance. We trust the FAQ provides answers that help you. As you consider your options for attendance please know that we are taking all safety measures possible to clean and sanitize areas of the building throughout the day. We ask that you consider safety as the main priority in making your decision. Our commitment is to provide the safest environment possible. 

Please confirm that your student will or will not return to in-person instruction by completing the Student Attendance Confirmation Form. We need parents to complete this form for every child by Wednesday, July 22nd. This data is necessary to finalize plans for those who will attend school in person and those who may prefer a full remote learning option. Please take the time to confirm your child(ren)’s attendance status. This information is needed in order to provide parents with the child’s schedule in a timely manner.

As we have mentioned, siblings in grades 2-5 will attend on the same day. However, we did not communicate clearly that siblings at Wood Oaks will attend on the same day in the A/B rotation.  With the complexities of the Wood Oaks schedule, we cannot guarantee to align the elementary and middle school students on the same schedule. 

We encourage you to go to the 2020-2021 School Year tab on the District website which will be updated regularly with new and evolving information. Please take the time to review the many resources that are made available on this page.  

Thank you, again, for your support during this unprecedented time.
