    On Thursday, November 19th we return to Remote Learning for all of our Penguins! Thank you in advance for your support and patience. We are confident that our students will embrace remote learning and continue to grow in skills and knowledge. Our Penguins are Remote Learning Rock Stars and we appreciate all you do to encourage them!
    You should have received a schedule of learning from your child’s homeroom teacher. If you have questions about the schedule or a link does not work during remote learning, please contact the teacher.
    If you are in need of assistance with anything else please email Mrs. Barlow at or Ms. Leslie at and they are happy to help in any way they can! If you don't have access to email the office phone number is 309-557-4422. Please leave a message if they are unavailable and they will get back to you as soon as possible.
