Dear Arbor Park Families,

Just a short time ago, Governor Pritzker extended his order to keep all Illinois schools closed through April 30th. This means that a return to school and in-person instruction will not occur until May 1st at the earliest. The purpose of this extension is to continue to try and slow down the spread of COVID-19. During this time, remote learning will continue here at Arbor Park. Our teachers and staff are fully engaged and are looking forward to providing your student(s) with a continuity of learning. Thank you for your patience, support and please continue to check the web site for updates. Stay safe and connected.

Stay Healthy and Connected!
Arbor Park School District 145

Dear Families and Community of Arbor Park School District 145,

During our fight against coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), I want to commend our families, staff, students, businesses, and community leaders for uniting about this serious issue. I am so very proud of everyone. We are doing a great job and will prevail.

While our students are at home, they can still be engaged in activities that will build their academic skills.  In an effort to keep a continuity of learning, we will be publishing helpful online resources on our website later today.   Also remember 3rd – 8th grade students can log in to ClassLink and access many online resources for reading and math practice.  Visit https://corporate.comcast.com/covid-19 to get free internet access and tell others to do so also.

Some important things to note: there will be no grades and/or requirements this week, since these days are classified as an Act of God. We want to help our families and students during an atypical time – activities this week are not part of compulsory education. Later on, our e-learning plan may become compulsory and much more structured so that student progress does not lag, but at this time it is for student independent learning and fun only.

Currently, we will need to make up only 1 day at the end of the school year. Monday, March 16th is an emergency day and will need to be made up. Graduation and activities for the end of the year will not change. We will assess the situation during Spring Break but the current plan is to resume school on Tuesday, March 31st. This day may change and so stay informed by checking our website often.

Please check back for updates. We will also communicate any news via our Alert System. We will continue to provide updates to our students, staff, and community, via phone, email, and our website.

In closing, there is nothing more heartwarming than a community united. We will get through this together by making every next-best decision for the good of all. Stay positive and determined yourself and influence others to do so as well.

Sincerely,
Andrea Sala
Superintendent
