Beginning after spring break, on April 13th, CPS will roll out Remote Learning for our students. Later today, you will receive a ClassTag or Google Classroom message from classroom teachers detailing the Remote Learning plan for your child’s class. Middle School will receive information from each content area teacher.
The plan will include daily instructional hours for your child, daily office hours for contacting teachers, weekly times for special teachers to meet with students, and times when the Diverse Learner, MTSS and ESL teachers will provide support for targeted students. Remote Learning instruction and materials can be accessed by smartphone, tablet, and/or a computer.
Below we have provided the office hours for teachers and staff. These are times when you can reach out with questions and get support from teachers. Our MTTS, ESL, Diverse Learners, Social Emotional (Social Worker and School Counselor) teams are also available during school closures. These teams will also connect with students weekly to provide support. Also, continue to visit our RESOURCE PAGE.
Mrs. Brewer, the school counselor is available daily 12:00 – 2:00 pm for counseling support and direct support for 8th graders high school acceptance and transitioning. Ms. Tapia, the school social worker is available daily 10:00 – 11:00 am by email for direct servicing and additional social emotional support if needed. Mrs. T.

We also appreciate your patience and understanding as we navigate through the resources to provide the best and most effective instruction for our students.
