Communication With Parents

July 31, 2020

Dear Parents, Guardians, and Students, 

As we prepare for the 2020–21 school year we want to provide you with information and guidance for our Remote Learning + plan.

We are confident that our Remote Learning + plan will serve as a viable teaching and learning framework during the current pandemic. For now, COVID-19 has changed the way we “do school.” Although it may be new and challenging, teaching and learning is not impossible in a remote learning environment, and we are confident that our faculty and staff will rise to this unprecedented challenge.

We have developed a Remote Learning + Plan that can be accessed here: Remote Learning + Plan.

This document will be updated periodically to reflect important information related to how we will be “doing school” while in a remote learning environment. Please save and / or “bookmark” this document as it will be updated periodically to reflect changes throughout the first semester: This information will also be available on the parents section of our website.

In addition, we have created a Quick Info for Remote Learning + document that can be found here: Quick Info for Remote Learning +

The Quick Info tool was developed to answer some of the frequently asked questions that we have received. 

We know firsthand how disruptive the current pandemic has been to our individual and collective lives. Please know that we will continue to do everything that we can to keep our students safe and healthy, support their social and emotional needs, and implement a rigorous teaching and learning environment.

As always, we are monitoring the COVID-19 situation and will continue to provide updated information via the Remote Learning + Plan document. If you have questions about the SHS Remote Learning + plan,  please reach out to any of us. 

We continue to update our website with important information including the video of our community webinar and remote learning information and resources on the reopening section of our website.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we are navigating these challenging times.

Sincerely,

Troy Gobble

Canvas for Parents

Stevenson High School has moved to a new electronic learning management system: Canvas. Canvas provides a one-stop platform for students to access course materials, grades and communications. Moreover, Canvas provides many different tools to support learning in engaging, collaborative, and informative ways.

Canvas allows parents and guardians to “pair” accounts with their students so student courses are viewable. This feature allows for parents and guardians to view course descriptions, information, materials, resources and student grades.

The video above describes how to access your student’s pairing code; and how to use the code to “pair” with your student’s Canvas account so that your student’s courses are viewable.

Home Language Survey

The state of Illinois requires schools to collect a Home Language Survey from every new student. This information is used to count the number of students whose families speak a language other than English at home. It also helps to identify the students who need to be assessed for English language proficiency. Parents and guardians of new students should complete the survey in one of the languages below and return it to Stevenson.

English
Chinese
Japanese
Korean
Russian
Spanish
