Superintendent's Corner

Dr. Shelly Davis-Jones

Dear Parents and Guardians:

 

Dolton School District 149 Board of Education will consider Remote Learning until further notice.  On Thursday October 22, 2020, I shared with the Board of Education my recommendation that Dolton School District 149 continue to implement remote learning for all students and staff until further notice.

 

Under this approach, students will continue to participate in teacher-led online lessons five days a week using their Chromebook at home. Our plan will be to revisit this decision at every Board of Education meeting until the scientific data deem it safe for students and staff to return to school.

 

The Department of Public Health have indicated data that COVID-19 testing and hospitalization rates in the south suburban region are at peak levels and continuing to rise. Even with our students, teachers, staff, families and communities following public health guidance to wear masks, maintain appropriate social distance and regularly wash their hands, the upcoming holiday season and winter weather place us all at increased risk as we spend more time inside together.

 

The Board will vote on my recommendation to extend remote learning in District 149 at its regular meeting to be held on Thursday, December 10, 2020 at 700 p.m.


I am confident that the Board will make the best decision for our District. I will communicate with you again after the Board meeting with additional information. I want to assure you that we will continue to deliver a great education, and to support the needs of our students, staff and families.

 

Thank you for your support during these challenging times.  Stay well and safe.

 

Sincerely,

 

 

Dr. Shelly Davis Jones

Superintendent
