To Our D120 Families:
This is our Fourth bi-weekly message to keep you informed about what is happening in District 120 at this time.
It was heartwarming to see so many of our students excited to be back in school as we opened the doors to the high school for full-time learning, five days a week. It has been over a year since our students were on campus full time and both they and our staffs welcome the opportunity to be back in school. At the same time, we respect the decisions of students and families who have chosen to remain in remote learning. We are enthusiastic about supporting all our students regardless of the form of education that they choose. Next week we will again offer the opportunity for additional high school students to join in-person learning if they choose.
This Wednesday, April 14, we will host a remote meeting where we will discuss our proposal to modify student start and end times beginning next school year. We are following the guidelines of the medical community who say that students are more productive when they get more sleep. Join us at the virtual meeting on Wednesday, beginning at 6:30 pm in English and 7:30 pm in Spanish. Follow this link to be a part of those meetings: https://www.d120.org/events/proposed-school-time-change-webinar/. This presentation will also include information about the D75 schools as well.
With just about a month left of this school year, we look forward to celebrating our student achievements and honoring our senior class.
