Dear Einstein community, 

Thank you for making our 1st Virtual Curriculum Evening a huge success! We are grateful to have had the opportunity to meet our families and connect with one another. We are looking forward to Monday as we navigate virtual learning together! 

How My Child Will Join Classes on the First Day of School
The following videos will provide a brief overview of how students will sign in and be present in their classes. They highlight how to login/join in, how to switch between classes, and how to navigate to tasks/activities. 

*Please note: Zoom on Chromebooks will START to install today which means students will have it on their Chromebooks in time for Monday’s first day of school. Students will NOT need to download it. It will appear on their device. 

Grades K-2: Students Starting School Using Seesaw
Also for students in grades K-2, please open Seesaw on their iPads and go to their homeroom class.Then navigate to activities to obtain the Zoom link for their morning meeting.

Grades 3-6: Students Starting School Using Google Classroom
Also for students in grades 3-6, they will be given Google Classroom Join Codes. These will be sent to your child’s Gmail.

*If you need support with technology, please email [email protected] or call the v-learning help line at  (847)357-5154. This is an incredible resource in one location! Virtual Learning Website

Supply Distribution Kinder
Kindergarten curriculum material pick-up will be scheduled on August 25th from 9:00-10:00 and 2:00-3:00. Kinder families will pick up supplies as well as receive an iPad.

FRL Distribution
We will be returning to a site-based distribution for our FRL families. Lunches and milk will be available daily from 10:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. for our Einstein students that qualify for FRL. We will distribute lunches through a drive thru loop system.  All families can remain in their vehicles. Einstein staff will be delivering lunches to your vehicles. Please write the names of your child(ren) on a piece of paper, to place on the side of your window. This will allow us to retrieve their lunches quickly. Please open your trunks and we will directly place the lunches inside.

Virtual Attendance
We will be taking attendance as if we were conducting classes at school. If your child will be absent from Virtual Learning, please call our attendance line, 630.736.2500, prior to the start of the school day.

McKinney-Vento eligible children are those who lack a fixed, regular and adequate nighttime abode. Please see the attached for more information.
