Dear Medinah Families,
My purpose of this communication is to familiarize you with our plans for emergency days/e-learning. Please note, this is different than what we are currently doing during our COVID-19 remote learning. The district has an Illinois State Board of Education approved e-Learning Plan in place. What this means is that the district may utilize "e-learning days" in lieu of emergency days (e.g. inclement weather/snow day). In the event inclement weather makes it not possible or unsafe for our in-person students and staff to travel to school, the district will enact an e-learning day for all students. This day will count as a full attendance day and will not need to be made up at the end of the school year. It also allows for continuity of learning for our students. All students are expected to participate in the e-learning activities assigned by their teacher in order to be counted as in attendance for the inclement weather day. 
The district still holds discretion on which days will be considered emergency days. There may be a circumstance that we would need to use the emergency day and not do an e-learning day. This information will be shared with families and staff using Instant Connect phone calls, posting on the District website and social media (Facebook, Twitter and Instagram).  
Since we had a snow day on January 26, we will be using Monday, March 1, as a staff planning day. This will still be a day off from school for our students. The district still has two more staff planning days to utilize this school year. As soon as we have those days decided upon, we will communicate with you.

Dear Parents/Guardians,  
Beginning February 3, 2021, teachers, parents and students across Illinois will have an opportunity to participate in the Illinois 5Essentials Survey: Organizing Schools for Improvement. The Illinois 5Essentials Survey is an Illinois State Board of Education initiative designed to generate a detailed picture of the inner workings of your child’s school. The University of Chicago is conducting the survey on behalf of the State Board of Education. District 11 teachers and students in grades 4-8 will complete the survey during the regular school day.  
District 11 parents may visit https://survey.5-essentials.org/Illinois/  to complete the Illinois 5Essentials Parent Survey.  
Your participation in the Survey will help us understand the conditions at your child’s school and guide improvement. However, District 11 will ONLY receive the survey results if at least 20 percent of parents respond to the survey. Your identity and responses will be kept completely confidential and will never be connected to you or your child. We strongly encourage our parents to participate, as the feedback generated from the survey will only help us to focus our improvement efforts.  
For more information about the Illinois 5Essentials Survey, or to view previous years’ Reports, please visit https://www.5-essentials.org/illinois. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact 5Essentials Client Services at 1-866-440-1874 or [email protected]

Reminders from the Nurse:
We would like to remind everyone about our district's policy related to student travel. This was developed before Thanksgiving and shared with all district families via email. It is also posted on our dashboard site below.
"Please note that regardless of where you are traveling, cases are prevalent and the associated risk is heightened. Anyone who chooses to attend a high risk gathering, and/or chooses to travel internationally or domestically, will be asked to work/learn from home and monitor his or her health for 14 calendar days." 
We understand that we’ve had several students traveling this week. Depending on their return dates, they may need to miss school when we are back to in-person learning. More information to follow on Friday, January 8, 2021.
See below for more information.
