Dear North Mac Community,
I hope this message finds you and your families safe and well. Today, Illinois Gov. JB Pritzker announced that remote learning in Illinois will be extended through April 30 in order to slow down the spread of COVID-19.
During this time, on-site learning will remain suspended, but our schools’ commitment to learning and education will remain and learning will continue for all students - just through a different format.
While we know that this is not ideal, we want to assure you that at North Mac our teachers and staff are fully engaged and willing to take on this new challenge and push forward with remote learning, engaging with students and continuing with our food distribution program. Just today alone we distributed over 3000 meals to more than 300 students for the coming week.
I know this is not the school year that any of us imagined, but I want to thank you for your patience and understanding as we have dealt with this unprecedented situation together.
As a recap, here are our main priorities moving forward:
Priority 1 - Feed and care for the extended safety, health, and welfare of students, families, staff, and our community at large.
Priority 2 - Communicate clearly and share coherent, organized and controlled messages with our staff, students and community.
Priority 3 - Provide for the continuity of learning.
It’s important we continue to work together and support our students and we are committed to doing just that. Please continue to visit the North Mac website for continued updates and information. Thanks again.
Dr. Jay A. Goble
