• When will District 204 use an e-Learning day? 

    The district may use an e-Learning day when school is closed due to inclement weather. If the superintendent announces that schools are closed, a determination will be made if the district is utilizing an e-Learning day or an emergency day. If an emergency day is used, no e-Learning will be implemented, and the day will be made up at the end of the school year. If an e-Learning day is used, a continuation of learning is expected, and the day will not be added to the end of the school year.

    How will students and parents be notified if an e-Learning day will be used? 

    Parents and students will be notified just as they have been informed in the past of weather-related school closings. The announcement will be made by 6 am and posted at www.ipsd.org. The district will also make a 204 Connect phone call to alert you of the information. Parents and students can also check the Emergency Closing Center for school closings. 

    What will it look like for students? 

    Student work on the first day should be completely independent. If a student is expressing difficulty, they should email the teacher for assistance. Flexibility will be provided for assignment due dates when appropriate. The total amount of assigned work should take no longer than five hours for completion. 

    On the second consecutive day, and any subsequent consecutive days, synchronous and asynchronous sessions will be provided. Synchronous sessions will be provided through Google Meets. Students will join Google Meets through their Google classrooms. At K-1, links will be emailed if no Google Classroom is set up. You can find sample schedules on this page. Schools will send home their exact schedules.
