    Dear Parents, Staff, and Community Members:

    I hope this message finds you and your families safe and well. Today, Illinois Gov. JB Pritzker announced that E Learning/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 open and learning will continue for all students - just through a different format.

    While it is not ideal, we want to assure you that at Chicago Heights School District 170, our teachers and staff are fully engaged and willing to take on this new challenge and push forward with E Learning/remote learning, engaging with students and continuing with our food distribution program. 

    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. 


    I will continue to provide updates as they become available.

    Be well and stay safe.


    Kind regards,

    Tom Amadio

    Estimados padres, personal y miembros de la comunidad:

    Espero que este mensaje les encuentre a usted y a sus familias sanos y salvos. Hoy, el gobernador de Illinois, JB Pritzker, anunció que E Learning / aprendizaje remoto en Illinois se extenderá hasta el 30 de abril para frenar la propagación de COVID-19. 

    Durante este tiempo, el aprendizaje en el sitio seguirá suspendido, pero el compromiso de nuestras escuelas con el aprendizaje y la educación seguirá abierto y el aprendizaje continuará para todos los estudiantes, solo a través de un formato diferente.

    Si bien no es lo ideal, queremos asegurarle que en el Distrito Escolar 170 de Chicago Heights, nuestros maestros y personal están totalmente comprometidos y dispuestos a asumir este nuevo desafío y avanzar con E Learning / aprendizaje remoto, interactuar con los estudiantes y continuar con nuestro programa de distribución de alimentos. 

    Sé que este no es el año escolar que ninguno de nosotros imaginamos, pero quiero agradecerles por su paciencia y comprensión, ya que hemos lidiado juntos con esta situación sin precedentes. 


    Continuaré proporcionando actualizaciones a medida que estén disponibles.

    Estar bien y mantenerse a salvo.


    Saludos cordiales, 

    Tom Amadio
