No additional District correspondence has yet been sent, but we expect more information about semester grades and graduation soon. Budlong staff will be discussing ways to remotely honor our school traditions, like end of year celebrations, and how to make new ones as well. Despite the difficulty in knowing that schools are closed for the rest of the year, we still have much to be grateful for. Please stay tuned!
We are in week two of remote learning. All teachers have live instruction and we want students to be able to interact with their teachers and peers often, so it important that students be logged on during that time. Any questions or concerns? Please be sure to stay in touch with your child's teachers. We also have Report Card Conferences on Wednesday. Please respond to the Sign-up Genius link from your child's homeroom teacher to schedule a phone appointment.
Quick reminder to 8th grade families: high school selections are due 4/22. Please contact Ms. Chmiel with questions about schools and/or the process.
And here are this week's announcements:
I just finished watching Gov. Pritzker's daily update and he announced that all schools will be closed the rest of the school year. CPS has not sent out any information as of yet, so I do not have any details for Chicago and Budlong. Once CPS-specific information comes through, I will share.
I do know there will be many questions, and I will do my best to work through each of them with everyone. We want to make sure our students and families have what they need, both academically and emotionally.
Please take care.
Principal Naomi Nakayama
