|Dear Einstein community,
We look forward to welcoming a number of our students back to school on January 19th on their assigned cohort days. We know that we will also have the wonderful opportunity to continue to learn with our students who have chosen to continue to attend school remotely. If your child has opted for the in-person hybrid model, please plan to come to school with your district issued device, charger and headsets. This equipment will still be essential to learning and staying connected as a classroom community.
Helping Hands Drive-thru
We look forward to seeing all of our families on the 27th! Please be mindful and wear a mask when picking up materials. Also, we are asking for each family to make a sign with their child/children’s names and grade to hold in the window of their car. Thank you!
Art Sketch Books for 3rd-6th Grade Students
Families must begin the process by completing an online registration (starting January 25th) prior to securing an appointment.
If you have a student currently enrolled in District 54, you can register your incoming kindergartener through your Parent Portal account. Families new to District 54 can register through the link on our website (http://sd54.org/registration).
Once your online registration is complete, you will be contacted to schedule your in person appointment to complete your student’s registration.
If you have any questions, please contact our office.
District 54 Open Enrollment Fair – January 27
Students must be registered at their District 54 neighborhood school before they can be accepted into an open enrollment program. Registration opens on February 3, 2021. Open Enrollment applications are available at sd54.org/openenrollment and are due by March 5, 2021.
As we restart our Hybrid model it is important that we reestablish our routines and procedures that were in place during our last hybrid period of time.
Hybrid Daily Covid Screener
Please notify our front office if your child is experiencing any symptoms on the day they become symptomatic. Please do not wait until the day you receive the screener.
What if my child wakes up with one or more of the symptoms on the symptom checker?
Children who have any one of the symptoms will need to quarantine from school. Your child should not come to school until you have spoken to the Nurse about the symptoms. At that time we will inform you of the potential return to in-person school date. During this stay at home quarantine time your child will need to log into virtual school via Google Classroom or Seesaw and continue to learn remotely until the established return to school date.
What if someone else, who lives in the same house, wakes up with one of the symptoms on the list?
If someone else in the house has Covid symptoms your child will also need to not come to school in person and instead complete the quarantine period of time. Please complete the Symptom Checker and indicate that there has been close contact with someone who has symptoms. Your child will stay home and instead log into virtual school. During the morning someone from the office will call the parent to discuss the symptoms and a return to school date.
What if my child or someone else, who lives in the same house, is being tested for Covid or has tested positive for Covid?
If someone else in the house is being tested for Covid, or has been diagnosed with Covid, your child will also need to not come to school in person. Please call the school for more information about quarantine dates under this scenario.
Please see the District 54 Exclusion Chart on our website Staff and Student Exclusion Chart for more details on when to keep your child home.

Hybrid Walker and Parent Drop-off
Please also remember that only bus riders, and students who are tardy to school after 8:40, enter the building through the front door. All walkers and students being dropped off by parents need to enter the building through the playground entrances.
When the students come out of the building they will need to connect with their parents. Please do not leave your cars unattended in the cul-de-sac. We will have adult supervision during arrival and dismissal.
Thank you for your patience and cooperation to ensure successful in-person learning.
