Distance Learning - Grades K-5

On Nov. 30, District 191 elementary students will transition to full distance learning. We wanted to let you know what to expect in this transition.  

Teachers will be working to establish routines and procedures for the daily schedule in the first week. After that, teachers will be following a schedule that will support your child in distance learning. 

Each day, your child’s teacher will work with your child in three different ways:

  1. Live Google Meet or Zoom - synchronous learning
  2. Recorded lessons - asynchronous
  3. Independent work 

We know that learning a new routine in a new environment can be difficult. In order to help your child know his/her schedule, each day, your child’s teacher will post the daily learning plan on SeeSaw. It will look something like this:

Wednesdays will have a slightly different schedule.  Teachers will only meet with students for 60 minutes in the morning.  This will allow time for students to engage in recorded lessons and independent work while giving teachers an opportunity to engage in professional learning.

Here are some expectations for distance learning to ensure we are safe, kind and responsible during distance learning: 

We want the absolute best for your child in all forms of learning. Here are some tips for you to consider as we transition into full distance learning:

While we know that change can be hard, we are very prepared in District 191 to support your child through distance learning. Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions. Thank you for your partnership!
