Coles Remote Learning Plan

Remote Learning

Pre-K-5th Teacher Schedules SY 2020/2021

January 20, 2021

Dear Parent or Guardian:

As we prepare to reopen our school building for K-8 students on Monday, February 1, 2021, we have made some adjustments to student and staff classroom assignments. We made these changes to ensure our in-person classes are a safe size, we are able to follow health protocols, and our teachers will provide the best possible learning experience for students at home and at school. 

       Beginning Monday, February 1, 2021, your child will have in-person learning Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 8am to 3pm. On Wednesdays the children will remain in remote learning from home on the computer. 

            On Wednesday January 27, 2021 we will have a series of virtual Open Houses by departments to discuss room assignments, building entry, social distances protocols and PPE.

The following are the links  and times for each departments virtual open house :

meet.google.com/bjx-rruh-owg - Primary K-2nd  from 4pm-5pm

meet.google.com/puo-ruha-jeg - Intermediate 3rd-5th from 5pm-6pm.

meet.google.com/jan-jwuv-nen - Upper Grades 6th -8th  6pm-7pm

       To prepare for hybrid learning, please take time to become familiar with our daily health protocols.  I also encourage you to review the Reopening Guide for Parents for more information.   

      As we transition to hybrid learning, changes to classrooms and daily routines can be hard for our students, especially at this point in the school year. I want to assure you that we are committed to making this transition as smooth as possible for your child. If you have any questions or if your child needs support, please contact me at cwmcspadden@cps.edu. For general questions about reopening that are not answered in the documents linked above, you can visit the district’s Reopening Support page for additional avenues to receive direct support for you and your child.
