RE: Parents ACCESS to school building amended
Date: Sunday, March 15, 2020
Out of abundance of caution, all DeKalb schools will ONLY be open tomorrow, Monday, March 16, 2020 from 8am-1pm. After Monday, March 16th, DeKalb is shutting down buildings for a period of time. All Huntley Hills school events are canceled until further notice.
Tomorrow, access to the building will only be for parents who need to collect medications and/or VERGE assignments for Pre-K, Kindergarten and/or traditional 1st grade. The building is not open for enrollment requests, withdrawals, parent conferences, etc.
If parents/students need assistance with VERGE or assignments, please contact your teacher via email or REMIND101. Teachers are available via email/REMIND101 during work hours Mon-Friday. Parents should have received a letter from your child’s teacher regarding their availability.
Schools serving lunches for students are ‘grab and go’. Huntley Hills and other DeKalb schools, as voting sites, have been postponed by the Elections Office from Tuesday March 24th to Tuesday May 19th.
A few tips to keep you and your child(ren) organized:
= Plan a time for schoolwork (example: 8am-1pm)
= Establish an area for school assignments
= Ensure your child reads every day for 20 minutes
= Work on addition, subtraction, and/or multiplication facts
= Pace VERGE assignments (refrain from completing all assignments in one day)
Parents, thank you so much for your patience during this time. We will keep you updated through emails/texts, eblasts, and the HH website for information as it is received from the district.
