Washington DC Trip Update

Dear Pennoyer Families,

Thank you for your patience while we worked with WorldStrides.  Unfortunately, the only option is to cancel the trip due to COVID-19 concerns.  We have been in contact with WorldStrides since mid March to try and recover as much money for our families as possible. 

WorldStrides will honor the families who purchased the Full Refund Program.  For those who did not purchase FRP, you will also get a similar cash refund, with an adjustment of $169 for just a small portion of WorldStrides’ unrecoverable costs and the deposit paid. Your exact refund amount may vary depending on what you’ve paid in toward your trip cost at this time. 

No action is required on your part to begin the refund process.  Due to the high volume of refunds being processed, WorldStrides has asked for your understanding on timing. Families can expect to receive refunds in June. The team at WorldStrides asked me to share their appreciation for your patience and understanding in these unprecedented times.

Stay Healthy,

Dr. Kristin Kopta                   Mrs. Julia Peters
Superintendent                    Middle School Teacher/Trip Coordinator

Remote Learning Technology Update

Dear Pennoyer Families,

I hope this message finds you and your family well! 

During these unprecedented times, Pennoyer’s teachers, staff, and administration are working hard to support the continuation of learning outside of the classroom. Although this is no substitute for in-school instruction, we have been working hard to extend our classroom to your home and to facilitate quality remote learning.

To support remote instruction, we have taken the following steps to prepare staff and students during this time:

  • All students (K-8) have been sent home with an assigned device, either an iPad or Chromebook.
  • All student devices are filtered outside of school, using the student security filter, Securly.
  • Pennoyer staff meet virtually every day to share ideas, conduct training, assess remote learning resources, review current directives and procedures, and ensure the best possible continuity of instruction between the classroom and home.
  • We have worked with Pennoyer families to ensure Internet connectivity in all homes. If you are in need of Internet access for your student devices, please reach out to me at pchristl@pennoyerschool.org and I would be happy to assist.
  • The technology help desk is open to support Pennoyer staff and students. Tickets can be submitted to support@pennoyerschool.org.

With the extended use of devices at home for all students, we take the online safety of our students seriously and with a top priority. In order to help achieve this, we use a student safety filtering software called Securly. This platform provides web filtering, cyberbullying monitoring, and self-harm alerts. Although this is a very robust solution, used by over 15,000 schools, no solution is perfect and may display false positives or overlook some questionable behaviors and content. We want to remind all parents to continue to be involved in their child’s online activity and to support responsible online behaviors and good digital citizenship. 

Securly also provides a parent app, Securly Home, to give insight into their child’s Internet activity as well as the ability to block additional web content and even pause the Internet on the school device while at home. More information on Securly Home, as well as download links, can be found on our District technology page: https://www.pennoyerschool.org/district/technology

As we continue to navigate these uncharted waters, please know that all of Pennoyer’s administration, teachers, and staff are here to support you and your families during this unprecedented time. If you have any questions related to District technology and our initiatives, please feel free to reach out to me directly.

Sincerely,

 

Patrick Christl
Director of Technology

COVID19 March 31 Update

Dear Pennoyer Family,

I hope this communication finds you and your family healthy and well.  We have all shifted to a new way of conducting school and I cannot be more proud of the resilience and flexibility of our Pennoyer students, families, teachers and faculty.  Our learning community is truly second to none. 

Today, Governor Pritzker extended the “stay at home” order through April 30.  This means the earliest we could return to school for onsite learning is May 1.  We will continue with remote learning during this time.  We will also continue to provide boxed breakfasts and lunches for anyone under the age of 18 in our community. If you are interested in receiving this, please contact Ms. Armenta at:
darmenta@pennoyerschool.org

Schools will continue to take guidance from the Illinois State Board of Education and Governor Priztker on a date to return for onsite learning.  I appreciate your understanding during this time.  Please continue to be safe and please reach out if you have any questions.
 

Sincerely,

 

Kristin A. Kopta, Ed.D

COVID19 March 20 Update

Dear Pennoyer Families,

I want to express my sincere gratitude to you and our Pennoyer faculty for keeping our learning community going this week, even though we were not physically together.   I have enjoyed seeing so many of our students this week online, sharing their work.  Having two kids of my own at home, I know it is difficult to conduct “school” from your kitchen or living room.  

We will not be returning to school until the earliest April 8.  We are now in a “Shelter-in-Place.  Please know, Pennoyer will have staff available to help our students during this time. 

Below is important information concerning moving forward as a Pennoyer Family:

eLearning and Enrichment 
Our outstanding Pennoyer teachers and faculty will continue to provide learning opportunities during this time.  They will focus on introducing students to concepts and standards that are essential for their grade level. We want to ensure we keep our students on track with their learning. We will not expect mastery of these concepts or standards.  Teachers will also be providing enrichment opportunities for students.

We will be changing the schedule for eLearning beginning on Monday, March 30.  The schedule will be as follows:

  • By 8:00am - We encourage all students to login, complete attendance and view learning opportunities for that day.

COVID-19 March 17 Update

Dear Pennoyer Families,

I want to applaud all of our Pennoyer students, families, teachers, and faculty.  We had almost a 100% attendance rate yesterday!  I loved the enthusiasm, unity and creativity our Pennoyer community showed throughout the day.  Pennoyer may be small, but we are mighty!

Governor Pritzker has ordered all Illinois schools to remain closed through Monday, March 30.  This means the earliest Pennoyer will be back in session is on Tuesday, March 31.  There are still many unknowns at this time.  I promise to keep you informed as information is provided to me. 

We will continue with eLearning:
Wednesday, March 18
Thursday, March 19
Friday, March 20
Monday, March 30
*These days will not need to be made up at the end of the year

If school is out of session beyond Monday, March 31, we may adjust our eLearning days instruction.  Please fill out this short survey for each child you have attending Pennoyer School so we can ensure we are providing meaningful instruction for your child. 

https://forms.gle/gxquFckNHkayFvY77

Thank you for your continued support.  Please know, even though we may not physically be together, our Pennoyer staff is here to support you and your families during this time.  Do not hesitate to reach out.

All before or after school activities at Pennoyer School are canceled next week as well. I have explored day care options, but unfortunately we are unable to provide child care during this closure.

Dear Pennoyer Families,

An Update From the WorldStrides CEO

Dear Valued Customers and Friends,

As the spread of the coronavirus continues to escalate globally, I am writing to assure you that the health and safety of WorldStrides students is at the center of everything we are doing.

As the virus has spread throughout the world, we are saddened but have had no choice but to postpone and relocate programs, first in Asia, then in Europe, and now in the United States. We are working closely with Program Leaders to make these decisions, and are focusing on programs that were scheduled to take place in the next few weeks, as this situation continues to evolve.

Our approach, like everything we do, is customized. Day-by-day, program-by-program. There are not currently any bans on domestic travel, but we are working with each group leader to postpone trips to a later time when we can deliver a safe and culturally-rich experience. For groups with travel plans in the future, we are monitoring local conditions and will make changes as needed at a later date. We will continue to ensure we are upholding our commitment to health and safety, while also supporting the transformational educational experiences that are vital to our mission.

We understand you may have concerns about travel at this time, and we are extending additional flexibility to all of our customers to give you the time you need to make the decisions that work best for you. If you were worried about the date that your cancellation penalty will apply, please know we have extended these deadlines through March 31. This allows you to wait until closer to the time of your travel to make a decision.

Below is some information to help you make your decision:

  • If you're looking forward to attending one of our travel programs this spring and summer, we look forward to seeing you. We appreciate the trust you have placed in us to take proper precautions. You can read more about additional training and protocols we have developed in our FAQ.
  • If you are still weighing your options, we appreciate the need to see how things evolve. Please know that we continue to closely monitor the developments, and we won’t hesitate to make changes if the situation warrants it. We have made significant investments to support a continuous and evolving review of the situation. We continue to update our recommendations based on updates from the World Health Organization, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the U.S. Department of State (DOS) and the guidance of partners like WorldAware and the George Washington University Department of Emergency Medicine.
  • If you're joining us next year instead, or if you've decided not to join us this year, we understand. We look forward to welcoming you back soon.

This situation is unprecedented for us, and for all of the travel industry. As this unfolded, I want to apologize that, in some cases, our team has not been able to answer your questions and concerns as specifically or as quickly as we would like. Our phone lines have been very busy, and we encourage you to get updates from your Program Leader before you check in with us. Your Program Leader will reach out to you after they finalized plans with your Account Manager. We are adjusting as the circumstances change.

I also want to thank our teams who are working 24/7 to uphold our values and support learning around the world, and I’m proud of them and grateful for their extraordinary efforts in extraordinary times.

We have more information in a Frequently Asked Questions page on our website. Thank you for your patience. We will continue to provide updates as they arise.

Sincerely,

Robert Gogel
President and CEO, WorldStrides

COVID-19 Update

Dear Pennoyer Families,

I wanted to update you with where Pennoyer School District 79 is in regards to the COVID-19 virus.   Pennoyer School will be OPEN tomorrow, Friday, March 13.  We will assess the situation tomorrow morning and send out another communication by the end of the school day.  

During this time should you decide to keep your child/children home from school, it will be marked as an excused absence.  Should you decide to do this, please call your child in as you normally would and let the office know you are keeping your child/children home.

Please look for additional communication tomorrow.  All communication concerning COVID-19  is posted on our website, along with resources.

COVID-19 Update & eLearning Information

Dear Pennoyer Families,

As you may be aware, schools on the Northwest side and suburbs have used emergency closure days due to the COVID-19 virus exposure.  While there are still NO reported cases of Coronavirus connected to Pennoyer School district at this time, we are closely monitoring student and staff illnesses and taking steps to be prepared. 

One of those steps is developing an e-learning plan should Pennoyer need to be closed for an emergency day(s).  While e-learning does not replace our teachers or the quality of authentic learning that happens in our classrooms, our goal is to ensure continuity of education for all of our students. 

Here are some highlights of the plan:

  • Beginning on Thursday, March 12 students in grades K-2 will be allowed to take home their iPads each night.  Please note, they are required to bring their iPads, fully charged to school every day. 
  • If an e-learning day is called, assignments for the day will be posted by 8:00am in your child’s Google Classroom account.
  • Students must login between 8:00am and 11:00am each day to complete a Google Form in order to receive attendance credit for the day.
  • Teachers will be available from 9:00am -12:00pm and 1:00pm-3:00pm to assist your children. 
  • If students are unable to login, alternative assignments will be provided.  These assignments will need to be turned in upon return to school for attendance credit. 

E-learning will look different at each grade level. Your child/children’s teacher will provide more detailed information in a separate communication.  If your child/children receive services from a specialist, they will also reach out to you individually. 
 
Should there be an e-learning day, you will be notified through School Messenger via email, phone and text.  Again, the goal of e-learning is to provide students with continuity of learning.  If e-learning days are implemented, they will count as an attendance day and will not need to be made up at the end of the school year. Your child will need to login to Google Classroom and fill out an eLearning student attendance form by 11:00am.  If your child cannot participate, we ask you to call your child in sick as you normally would. 

We have provided eLearning day information and Facts and Questions (FAQs) on our website: https://www.pennoyerschool.org/school/elearning

While I hope we do not have to implement this plan, we want to be proactive and timely in our communication.  

Lastly, I want to ensure all Pennoyer families the health of our students, faculty and community is extremely important to us.   These are unchartered times we are in, but I want to reassure you that I am in constant communication with our neighboring districts and health officials.  Any decision to close school will be made under consultation and advice of the Illinois Department of Public Health.   There are many assumptions out there about the COVID-19 or Coronavirus. The sources school districts are using for the most up to date information and guidance are: 
 
https://www.cdc.gov/
http://www.dph.illinois.gov/
https://www.isbe.net/


It is important for everyone to do their part in staying healthy.   The CDC always recommends everyday preventive actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases, including:

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if your hands are visibly dirty. For additional information about handwashing, see CDC’s Handwashing website.

These are everyday healthy habits that can help prevent the spread of several viruses.  We also request that when calling your child in sick to school, please provide us with your child’s specific symptoms.  Pennoyer will be doing its part by sanitizing all classrooms at least twice a week with our electrostatic sanitizing machine, providing our teachers with extra hand sanitizer and virus killing wipes for their classrooms. 

I thank all our Pennoyer families for their cooperation and patience.  Please feel free to contact me should you have any questions or concerns. 

Sincerely,

Updated Coronavirus Efforts and Resources

Dear Pennoyer Families,  

In Pennoyer’s School District 79’s continued efforts to share with parents, staff and students information related to the Coronavirus, here is the latest update on Pennoyer’s proactive approach to keeping students and staff both safe and informed.

Yesterday, I met with superintendents from Norwood Park Township  (Norridge School District 80, Union Ridge School District 86 and Ridgewood High School District 234)  and Maine Township (River Trails School District 26, Community Consolidated School District 62, East Maine District 63, Park Ridge-Niles District 64, and Maine Township High School District 207)  in efforts to work together in following developments regarding the Coronavirus, or COVID-19.  Administrators from each district came together for a meeting to discuss plans and proactive measures. This collaboration will help us be aware of our local conditions, share resources and expertise, and be prepared should an outbreak occur.

While there are NO reported cases of Coronavirus connected to any of our school districts at this time, school nurses are closely monitoring student and staff illnesses and taking steps to be prepared. Coronavirus does not have a vaccine. According to the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH), Illinois has implemented testing for the strain, becoming the first state to do so. At this time, IDPH does not recommend canceling classes or mass gatherings, nor does it recommend the use of face masks.

We follow the guidance of the IDPH, and remain in contact with the Cook County Health Department as well as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). We also are working together on contingency plans in case of an outbreak in our area or our school communities. As part of our contingency planning, we are exploring options if schools are directed to close. 

Preventative Measures
All of our schools have preventative measures in place and we ask that you take preventative measures as well to help prevent the spread of illness:

  • If your child is sick, please keep them home from school until they are fever-free or feel better for at least 24 hours.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash 

Additional Resources
The following resources provide additional information about Coronavirus. The Centers for Disease Control provides a broad range of background information, updates and travel information. Here are specific resources from the CDC and other health organizations:

We are committed to our continued collaboration to protect the health of our students, staff and communities.

Sincerely,

Healthy Habits

Dear Pennoyer Families,

With the news coverage of the 2019 Novel Coronavirus, or COVID-19, we want to assure you the district is monitoring the situation closely along with the health department. Please understand that his letter is for informational purposes and is meant to be used as a tool for prevention. There have been no reported cases of Corona Virus at Pennoyer School. Please read the following recommendations from the CDC (Centers for Disease Control,) regarding prevention of COVID-19 (Corona Virus.)

Prevention:
There is currently no vaccine to prevent coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus. However, as a reminder, CDC always recommends everyday preventive actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases, including:

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if your hands are visibly dirty. For additional information about handwashing, see CDC’s Handwashing website.

These are everyday healthy habits that can help prevent the spread of several viruses. Pennoyer will be doing its part by sanitizing all classrooms on a weekly rotating basis with our sanitizer machine.  We also request that when calling your child in sick to school, please provide us with your child’s specific symptoms. 

While the immediate risk of this new virus to the American public is believed to be low at this time, everyone can do their part to help us respond to this emerging public health threat. 

Please feel free to reach out should you have any questions or concerns. 

Sincerely,


Kristin A. Kopta, Ed.D
