We will not have eLearning during our spring break, Monday, March 23 through Friday, March 27.

Expectations for ALL Students
- Per Illinois State Law, on eLearning/Alternative Learning Days, students must be engaged in relative grade-level/course work for five hours. Families can choose how this is done.
- For Monday, March 16 ONLY, students must complete the posted assignments in order to be counted as present for the day. Once school resumes, assignments will be collected and those who didn't submit (electronically or otherwise) will be changed to "Absent" for the day.
- For Tuesday, March 17 through Friday, March 20, and Monday, March 30, Dunlap CUSD #323 will still be conducting eLearning without tracking attendance. As the District believes that learning needs to continue, students are still expected to access assignments and completed as instructed by teachers, as outlined below.
- Students are to check Canvas for assignments, which will be posted by teachers by 9:30 a.m. each morning.
- Students must submit work either electronically or in-person when school resumes. How assignments are submitted is at teacher discretion.
- Questions about assignments can be emailed to teachers. Teachers are expected to check emails hourly and respond between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. on eLearning days.
- Assignments will not count for points, but they will be reviewed by teachers and students will receive feedback. This will ensure that the time away from school is as least disruptive to learning as possible.
- Paper copies/alternative assignments can be picked up from school buildings during office hours: 9:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
If an issue arises with a Chromebook, kindergarten through fifth-grade students or parents will email their classroom teacher who will contact the HelpDesk. Should a Chromebook need to be switched out, IT staff will let the teacher know who will pass the information along to students. Sixth through Twelfth-grade sutdents should email the helpdesk directly at firstname.lastname@example.org, a practice they are used to.
Should a Chromebook need to be switched out, parents/students will be made aware of when that will occur at their home school's office.
