Dear Parents and Guardians:

Suspension of In-person Instruction for the Remainder of the 2019-2020 School Year

I hope this message finds you and your families safe and well. On April 17th, Illinois Gov. JB Pritzker announced that remote learning in Illinois will be extended through the end of the 2019-2020 school year. Our district 149 family is saddened by the reality that our school community will not be able to reconvene in person this school year due to this public health crisis.  Although in-person learning has been suspended for the remainder of the school year, I assure you our entire staff remains committed to learning and engaging with all students and continuing our breakfast and lunch program.  One thing we know for sure is that we are all in this together and over these past few weeks we recognize how resilient and strong we are when we work together collectively. 


We hope everyone had a safe and healthy Spring break.  Remote/E-Learning resumes today Monday, April 20th thru the end of the school year.  Please make sure to stay in contact with your child’s classroom teacher and building administrator for any questions or concerns.  Additional online resources are also available and uploaded on our website at www.sd149.org visit our website and click on schools to locate your child’s school.


Please visit the district’s website at www.sd149.org to complete the Parent Feedback Survey for Technology Assessment.  Your completion of the survey will assist us in our preparation and delivery of Remote/E-Learning services for all students.

The Grab and Go Curbside Breakfast and Lunch program remains in effect Monday-Friday from 8:00 am-11:00 am at the Middle School located at 1650 Pulaski Road in Calumet City, IL.

To support your health and wellness please go to www.isbe.net/mentalhealth there are many resources links to support the mental health and well-being for you and your family. Our very own District Psychologist Dr. Tiffany Graham will conduct a serious of You Tube videos to support mental health.  Please check out her videos on our website weekly.


Feel free to send pictures to your child’s teacher and principals so we can share the unique ways students are learning at home.  Your child’s teacher and principal emails are also located on our district website by clicking on the schools tab and then scrolling down to staff directory. Please type in your child’s teacher name and it will appear on the screen. Videos of remote/e-learning will be posted on our district website and district 149 Facebook page. Please check out the wonderful things you as parents and guardians are doing to support learning at home.


Thank you for leading this charge with us and please know we sincerely appreciate your support and patience.


Stay well and safe,

Dr. Shelly Davis Jones
