Tonica Grade School – Continuation of Remote Learning/Adaptive Pause
November 20, 2020
Dear Tonica Grade School Families and Staff:
This is an update regarding Tonica Grade School continuation of remote learning through December 4, 2020 with a tentative return to in-person learning on Monday, December 7, 2020. Based upon State and Local COVID-19 rates and an update from the Illinois Department of Health, TGS made the decision for the health and safety of the learning community to implement a continuation of our Adaptive Pause of in-person learning with possible extension of the Pause until Christmas Break.
Thank you to the staff for a quick and detailed preparation of schedules, learning materials and implementing remote learning. Also thank you parents and students for your high engagement levels and use of the various learning platforms.
Teachers will reach out to parents if there will be new learning materials to pick up on Tuesday, November 24th between 1:00 and 6:00 p.m. Late pick-up will be after Thanksgiving by calling the school to schedule a pick-up between 9:00 a.m. and Noon.
The cafeteria will announce another meal to go order for after Thanksgiving.
Any extension of the Adaptive Pause would hopefully be announced by Wednesday or Thursday the week prior to a possible transition back to in-person learning.
Tonica Grade School asks that if your household experiences a COVID-19 symptom during the Adaptive Pause that you notify the school. Any one symptom may be reason to quarantine or have student excluded upon return to in-person learning.
It is highly recommended that families follow the guidelines of the IDPH regarding holiday travel and gatherings to help stop the spread of COVID-19.
Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus. People with these symptoms may have COVID-19:
Fever or chills, Cough, Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, Fatigue, Muscle or body aches, Headache, New loss of taste or smell, Sore throat, Congestion or runny nose, Nausea or vomiting, Diarrhea
Look for emergency warning signs for COVID-19. If someone is showing any of these signs, seek emergency medical care immediately:
Trouble breathing, Persistent pain or pressure in the chest, New confusion. Inability to wake up or stay awake, Bluish lips or face
