Dear Greenwood Students and families,We will continue to provide learning activities this week for your children. Even when not in school, we want our students to have a high quality education and to continue to grow as learners. The value of an education is greater than a grade. Education helps students create opportunities for themselves and their futures.Teachers will be pushing out lessons each morning through ClassDojo, Canvas, and/or Email. If you have not received the lessons for the day, please contact your child's teacher. You may find staff emails here.Lessons will also be posted on the Greenwood Website by 7:30am.If you are having technology issues, please contact District 200 technology department atParent and Students -Technology Help Line - 815-337-5435Email Address - firstname.lastname@example.org

Please call 815-337-8614 to report any of the following symptoms: Fever greater than 100, cough, shortness of breath, chest congestion, headache, abdominal pain, nausea/vomiting, diarrhea, sore throat, eye irritation etc.. If your child or family member has been diagnosed with Covid-19, strep, Influenza A or B, we ask that you report that to our attendance line as well so we can continue to report illness to the McHenry County Health Department per our standard protocol.

Message from Superintendent Moan - April 2, 2020
Dear District 200 Elementary School Families:
I would like to again thank you for your support and patience during this difficult time for all of us. As you may be aware, Governor Pritzker has extended our school closure through April 30.
This week we have continued our eLearning instruction, and we are thrilled to see our teachers and students engaging with each other. We will continue developing our eLearning plans in the coming weeks, and we appreciate the efforts from our students and our parents to stay active in education.
At this point the State of Illinois has cancelled all state assessments for this year. Elementary school students will not be taking the Illinois Assessment of Readiness or the Illinois Science Assessment. Our grading plan for eLearning is provided below,
Grading System for Elementary Students
The Illinois State Board of Education has ordered that “students will not be required to master and will not be penalized for failure to master new content;” while this eLearning plan is in place.
At the elementary level students are assigned completion scores towards essential standards in reading, writing and math during our remote learning and will receive a third trimester report on work towards these standards.
For the third trimester, students will receive a P for Passing a standard or I for an Incomplete educational experience with the standard. Any students who are unable to complete work in the third trimester due to our remote learning will receive an Incomplete. At the end of the trimester, students will have eight weeks to complete work to turn the Incomplete into a passing grade.
