Dear K-2 Students, Parents and Guardians, Beginning March 31, all schools in Illinois moved from ‘Act of God’ days to “Remote Learning”. What does this mean? Remote Learning is defined as: An educational program designed to provide continuation of learning for students under conditions that prohibit the learner and instructor from being in the same physical space. While we would much rather be here in the building all together every day, we have had to figure out a way to provide a meaningful education for your children to prepare them for when we return to school. Because this new way of teaching and learning has everyone trying to figure out what they NEED to do, what they SHOULD do, and what they WANT to do. I am outlining the responsibilities of everyone below. *Note: Some of the outline below is taken from the Pana CUSD#8 Remote Learning Plan on the panaschools.COM website. I don’t want anyone to miss out on what they need to do to be a successful student and eventually be ready for the next grade. We all have to work together to provide what these kids need to meet their physical, emotional and educational needs. Teacher Responsibiities: • Make remote learning activities available to parents each day. • Provide a range of meaningful learning opportunities that meet the needs of all learners (pencil and paper, electronic opportunities for experiences, opportunity for Google Meets/Hangouts so kids can see their classmates and teachers, etc.). • Provide regular feedback to students on their progress. o This includes asking for work samples (photos) to determine if students need additional guidance with work or are on the right track. • Students should not be engaging in more than 90 minutes of work daily. Student/Parent Responsibilities: • Read every day!! • Make arrangements to pick up work packets at the school so you have the resources you need to complete assignments. • Connect to DoJo daily to review the assigned work. Just check in- you do not have to sit all day at the computer, just check in to let them know you are ok or you need help with the assigned tasks. • Teachers are available in the DoJo classroom between 8:15-1:15 daily. If that does not work in your schedule, respond anyway and they will get back to you the next day. • Complete and respond back to any work requested by the teacher. • Ask questions when you need help or don’t understand something. • Be respectful to yourself, your teachers, and your peers. • If you know someone who is NOT connecting- tell them to call the office to get help 562-7500. Attendance: • Your response back to your teacher is an indication that you are working and engaged in your learning. • Attendance to learning is mandatory. If your child is not engaging in learning, they will not be ready for when we return (whether this school year or next is still up in the air- it depends on ensuring the health and safety of everyone). Grading: • The purpose of grading is to provide meaningful feedback to students to help them grow. • Your responses allow teachers to see if you are on the right track or need help with skills. • Grading for the 4th quarter will be S (satisfactory) or I (incomplete) and IS based on your participation in your learning. ** Please look on the panaschools.COM website for these documents: 1. The school closure extension letter from Mr. Bauer. 2. The Pana CUSD #8 District wide remote learning plan. 3. A sign up for the Grab and Go meals being provided to ALL students in our district. Additional Packet distribution: April 14th 1-3 at Washington School- Same drive up routine as the last time!! Arrive from the south with your passenger window to the door and I will hand you your packet of materials. *Do not hesitate to call or message me if you need assistance or questions. Be safe and be healthy until we are ‘back to normal’. Love, Mrs. Wysong

March 26th, 2020 Dear K- 2 Students & Families, (PK students teachers are contacting you for information and activities thru dojo- you do not need to come get packets) 1. The K-2 packets of instructional materials that you will need to go along with your assignments for March 31st-April 7th will be available for pickup Monday, March 30th at Washington School. Below, I have outlined the details: • Kindergarten @ 9:00-10:00; Grade 1 @ 1030-11:30; Grade 2 @12:00 -1:00 • In order to make this less crowded, we ask that you follow the schedule, arrive from the south (just like the busses do) and stay in line. (please be patient). By coming in this way, you will be arriving at the back door with your passenger side window toward the building. I will run in and out of the back door to hand you the things that you need. (if you need any additional school supplies, message me on dojo and I will add them to your packet of learning materials) • If you are unable to come to pick up your packet, send me an email at cwysong@panaschools.com and we will figure out other arrangements, but I would appreciate only having to figure this out for the truly in need- 300 separate arrangements is not an efficient way to do this. (Thank you) • YOU DO NOT need to return your other work when you come….…. there are things in the first packets that will be needed for the next wave of assignments :0) Watch for guidance from your teacher of which things she wants you to send pictures of. • If you have more than one student at Washington, please message me (before Monday) in dojo and tell me what time you are coming and I will have all your packets ready to go in one bag!! And if someone else is picking up your children’s packets, let me know that also (with time) and I will put your things with theirs so we can do this in the most efficient way possible…. 2. Note: The state has determined that we will be moving from the ‘Act of God’ days to a ‘remote learning’ designation. What does this mean for us? It means that YOU have been doing an awesome job doing your work and asking questions when you need help. It means that WE will continue to support your child’s learning. It also means that we must continue to take attendance based on you picking up assignments and responding (we are aware that you may be doing this outside the ’normal school hours’, that is ok- we will still count you as in attendance if you are responding and turning in work.) This is a new way to teach and to learn for all of us, so please continue to work hard- we do not know at this time how long this will last, and we need to make sure that you are ready to finish the year strong!! This will continue to evolve but is so very, very important in your child being ready for the next grade. 3. Grab and Go meal pickups are currently occurring in the circle drive at the High School and coming on the busses daily from 8:00 -10:00 A.M. If you have not signed up but would like to, please go to www.panaschools.com to sign up. If you have already done this, the list will continue and you do not need to sign up again. *****NO meals (delivery or pick up) and NO instructional assignments will be sent out on dojo for April 9th, 10th or 13th. This is our designated spring break and that cannot be changed on the school calendar, and at this time no changes have been made in dates like the last day of school, High School graduation, etc. There are a lot of ‘wait and see’ things this year. 4. Should the closure extend past the April 7th date, I will provide you with additional information concerning details of plans for another round of instructional materials and how this will continue to evolve. (some of you already have that- just in case) THANK YOU ALL for your patience and understanding as we navigate this unprecedented time in education. We will continue to communicate via class dojo, email, social media, and Lumen notifications. If you have additional questions, please contact the office at 562-7500. Office hours will remain 7:30AM-3:30PM Monday through Friday. Sincerely, Mrs. Wysong

Good Morning! The doors at Washington School will be unlocked beginning at 1:15 to pick up the materials and packets.... that said, due to the CDC recommendation for social distancing we respectfully ask: 1. Leave extra kiddos at home... the fewest possible people in your party-the better. 2. This will be a grab and go. Your packet will be in the hallway outside the classroom door. Teachers and assistants will be there to guide you. Though we love you all, please get in and out as quickly as possible and use dojo and email for communication. 3. Use the QR code posted on the door to sign up for meals. Additional packets will be distributed using this system (bus or pick up) as well. Our packets will go out weekly but the assignments will be pushed out to you on dojo daily. 4. If you know someone who is not on dojo and has questions, please give them the school phone number and have them call me. 562-7500. 5. Take time to read to your kiddos, ENJOY THEM! They will be grown and gone before you know it.... make this a special family time to help eliminate their fears in this difficult time. Mrs. Wysong

Parents and Guardians, As you are aware, due to a desire to slow the spread of COVID-19 (and other virus’) social distancing is recommended by the CDC (centers for disease control) and school has been cancelled for tomorrow. We are not scheduled to return until March 31. With this announcement, we have been working on plans for: 1. Learning packets and supplies for students- and how to get those to you 2. A plan of how you can reach your child’s teacher to get help if you have questions (for each building) 3. Food distribution for anyone who needs/wants it for their child/children We have developed a “Distance Learning” experience for your students that will provide meaningful assignments beyond simple busy work. Distance Learning is obviously not going to replace the engagement with a teacher in a classroom, but it will provide the necessary review and practice to help kids skills stay sharp and to avoid a loss in learning. Our Distance Learning experiences are not digital at this level - we do not have devices like the Jr. High and High School students, however, some links to web sites will be provided as extra learning activities that kids can do if you choose to once their assigned tasks are completed. We want pencil and paper and learning engagement BEYOND a screen. This is the best way for young children to learn and reinforce skills. Learning packets and supplies may be picked up at Washington School after 1:00 and before 3:30 on Monday. If you are unable to do this, please call the school (562-7500) and we will make other arrangements for you. There are 3 important pieces of information on the panaschools web site. Please go there to view them. They include: 1. A memo stating about no school tomorrow and the inclusive dates 2. A letter from Mr. Bauer 3. Information about signing up to get breakfast and lunch for your children who attend Washington School and a sign up link so we can ensure that we have enough meals. Our Plan: Once you have picked up your learning packet (or made other arrangements with the office to get it), each morning your child’s teacher will send you a list of the activities on DoJo that they would like your child to complete during their learning day. (If you are not on DoJo you may receive this list through email or by calling the office or emailing the teacher asking for the code to join the DoJo).You are asked to ‘like’ or respond in some way each day so she knows that you have received the information. This will ensure that everyone is getting what they need. Your child’s teacher will monitor DoJo from 8:15-1:15 each day and will also be available to answer questions via email. We are aware that parent work hours may interfere with the 8:15-1:15 time frame so students may be 1 day behind. This is not a concern for us as the material is intended to be for practice daily and to reinforce and keep skills sharp- you will NOT be expected to help them with new material that your student has never seen before. All assigned material are skills your child needs to practice and commit to memory as appropriate. (math facts/activities, sight words, phonics practice, etc.) If you have questions, and are working outside the 8:15-1:15 time frame, send a message and you will get an answer the next day. We will continue this process as long as we are out of school, and additional material may be shared with you as we move forward so keep an eye on DoJo and the panaschools web site for the most up to date information. Thank you for all your patience and understanding as we navigate this unprecedented time in education. We will continue to communicate with you as new information becomes available. Please contact me at Washington school if you have additional questions. Mrs. Wysong
