Spring Break has started, and there won’t be any E-Learning during the break. Due to Gov. Pritzker’s stay-at-home order, students and teachers won’t return to school until April 8. The District’s E-Learning Plan restarts on Monday, March 30.

To help slow or stop the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus), the governor’s stay-at-home order is meant to mandate social distancing, except in specific circumstances.

To help increase the number of entertaining and amusing things to do, while attempting to spark your imaginations, below are lists of online and offline things to do during the upcoming weeks.
One of the most common activities that is often recommended to help sustain family harmony is to maintain a daily schedule. Below are two potential schedules, but feel free to develop and manage your own family schedule during these stay-at-home days.
