Dear New Berlin Elementary Families, Thank you for your extraordinary support over the past several days, as we deal with the growing coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic. As you may know, to further safeguard Illinois from the spread of the virus, Governor J.B. Pritzker has declared mandatory school closures for all buildings serving pre-kindergarten through 12th grade students. Additionally, due to confirmed cased of the coronavirus/COVID-19 cases in Sangamon County, the closures will begin Monday, 3/16. Families with upcoming IEP meetings will be contacted by SASED with plans on how to conduct those meetings. This is an extremely fluid situation with information from the state changing daily. Over the past few days, new guidance has been provided from the Governor and ISBE. This information changes the plans we had for the upcoming days. The closure is now considered Act of God Days. As such, the District’s plan to begin e-Learning is no longer an option. Act of God Days do not count for attendance nor do they count as an instructional day on the school calendar. There is no expectation for activities completed during this time to be turned in or graded. The guidance from ISBE for these Act of God Days is to have Continuous Learning Opportunities. ISBE suggests students can stay engaged in their education while not physically at school through home-based activities, free online resources, and technology. We encourage you to engage your children in other free, online educational activities. The Illinois State Board of Education has compiled a library of resources at www.isbe.net/keeplearning . Comcast is offering low cost internet to families who qualify. Here is a link to information https://www.internetessentials.com/. The administrative team is meeting Monday morning to plan for how to best manage the challenges presented by the COVID-19 crisis. We will continue to inform you as quickly as we can about any further changes to school services. Thank you for your support, understanding and partnership. Warmest Regards and Stay Safe, Brian R. Bishop, Principal New Berlin Elementary School
