Buenos dias, Bateman students, parents and staff!
Today is Monday, April 13, 2020.
Remote Learning Begins on Monday, April 13th
Dear Bateman Families and Friends,
We hope you had a wonderful Spring Break and all of our students are well rested and eager to start learning again. We have missed all of you so much!
A very big THANK YOU to our essential workers! This includes our lunch staff and security who are passing out hundreds of food everyday. Bateman will continue to be a food location. Please come to door #6 on Sacramento to receive 3 days of food for breakfast and lunch, Monday-Friday, 9:00am - 1:00pm.
Our teachers have worked diligently to create our Remote Learning Plan, which starts today, Monday, April 13th. We can do this! If you haven’t already, please check in with your child’s teacher to know the expectations for our students everyday. In order to make sure students are provided with remote learning opportunities, we need your help. We need to set the expectation that every single Bateman student participates in Remote Learning on a daily basis. With your help of establishing the expectations at home and the teachers daily instruction, our students will continue to learn, stay engaged and connected.
Stay calm and stay the course. Teachers will be monitoring who is present and making sure students are completing their work. Keep in mind, grades can only help a student at this time. However, if a student does not complete an assignment, it will be marked as incomplete and students will be expected to complete it when we return to school.
Each grade level will be sharing a weekly schedule with parents via email by Monday morning of each week. This schedule will provide time allotments per subject area as well as any live teaching times to anticipate for the week. You should also receive Essentials Team weekly guides, which are also linked below for the week.
To support families in allowing you to focus on your child's remote learning, we will be transitioning to 2 Broadcasts per week - one weekday version (sent Mondays) and one weekend version (sent Fridays). We will still include the same elements but you can look at them when it is convenient for you! We will also continue to distribute District Created Resources upon request for those who do not have access to a printer.
Please reach out with any questions or concerns by email at Bateman@cps.edu. You may also call the Main Office (773-534-5055) starting today between the hours of 9:00 am - 1:00 pm.
Thank you for your patience, understanding, and support as we navigate through this new learning together.
Now more than ever, we feel our community is working together to #BeBateman!
Wishing you and your family health and safety!
-Ms. Davos & Ms. Kloepper
