Principal's Message 4.24.2o


We know that the news of our D96 buildings being closed for the remainder of the school year, although in some ways anticipated, was difficult for us all to take in.  However, we want to assure you that teaching and learning remain open!  We care about your children deeply and will continue to provide learning, the school experience, and classroom connection opportunities.  

Thank you for your ongoing support and partnership.

NEW: Student Material Pick-Up

We know that with the buildings being closed for the remainder of the school year, students have materials and possessions that need to be picked up.  Please know that district administrators are working to develop a plan and protocol for this to take place, and we will communicate that plan as soon as we have information to share with you.  We are working diligently to ensure the plan we develop adheres to health and safety guidelines to protect our school community.

REPEATING: Tech Support (Kindergarten-5th Grade)

I’m having technical issues while accessing slideshows in the  Google Slides app. What can I do to get around these issues?

DELETE the Google Slides app from your student’s device. (It can always be re-downloaded from Self-Service at a later time.)

Open the Google Drive app on your student’s iPad and locate the shared slideshow that you are trying to view. 

Play the slideshow from within the Google Drive application, or OPEN IN SAFARI if given the option.

As students are home with their iPad devices to access remote learning plans, we do anticipate there may be some tech needs that arise.  If you run into any difficulty with your child’s school iPad, just send us an email explaining your problem and we can support you and your device.  Please email [email protected] with any tech-related support needed.
