Current School News
On March 31, 2020, Governor JB Pritzker announced that Illinois will continue its suspension of in-person instruction for another 30 days, through April 30. School will tentatively resume in-person instruction on, Friday, May 1, 2020. What this means for LGS is that students will continue to complete the Alternative Learning assignments that were just picked up through April 7, 2020. On April 8th & 9th, the teachers will be completing Alternative Learning plans for student to complete April 12th through April 30th. Tentatively the new Alternative Learning packets will be picked up on April 14th and at that time all completed work will be turned in. There will not be school on April 10th for Good Friday or Monday, April 13th. Nothing will be assigned to students from April 8th through April 13th.
There is a “Completed Student Work” bin located outside of the front door of the school for parents and students to drop off finished work. This will be a great opportunity to encourage students to complete their work daily, rather than waiting until the last minute. This will also allow teachers to review work as it comes in, rather than several days all at once from all their students. There is also an “Out Going Mail” bin inside the large bin if a teacher needs to get materials to students. If your child needs materials such as a new book, crayons, a notebook, etc., let the teacher know and they can put it in the bin for you to pick up at your convenience. Please, no electronics should be placed in the bin.
If you are in need of anything, please do not hesitate to contact any of us. We understand this unusual time is very difficult for everyone so please let us know if there is some way we can help.
Accelerated Reader will be available to students to take AR tests at home. Teachers will be providing students with their log in; however, it is the same as their IXL password, all lowercase. Students can only take tests from their book levels given to them by their teachers. If you have any technical questions you will need to contact Mrs. Zielske at email@example.com . AR link is:
IXL is now offering online learning to our students in science, social studies, and ELA along with the subscription our students already practice in math. Teachers have set up their classes to access this additional curriculum. Log in information has not changes, so their current IXL log in will give them access to all of this additional learning! IXL link is:
Teachers will be available during regular school hours, 8am-3pm, via email if you have any questions. They will be checking email often.
Newark Net could provide discounted or possibly free installation with continued service. Monthly service would cost $50. If interested, you can contact them for available options at 815-318-7615.
AT&T and Comcast are offering great opportunities for internet services, however their service in the Lisbon area is extremely limited and difficult to receive their services.
After looking into internet service in Lisbon I have found that the least expensive option at this time is to call your cell phone provider to see if they are offering unlimited hotspot availability during the COVID-19 pandemic.
If your LGS child is in need of lunch service, please contact Mrs. Elias at firstname.lastname@example.org the Wednesday prior to the week you would like service for planning purposes. You will be contacted with a confirmation that we have received your request.
