E-Learning Partnership during School Closure

Please watch this video message from our teachers.  We miss our Matteson Families!

 

UPDATE! I hope this continues to find you and your loved ones staying safe, secure, and healthy during this time.  We truly miss seeing our students and families!  

  • On Friday, April 17, Governor Pritzker announced that all Illinois schools will use remote learning for the completion of the 2019-2020 school year.  Therefore, our school building will remain closed through the end of the school year.   
  • We continue to offer our e-learning partnership for the remainder of the school year. 
    • Pencil and Paper packets went out to the families who needed them and will take us through until the end of May.    
    • You will continue to find updated learning activities on our website and through your child's teachers' Google Classroom. 
  • If you are in need of anything please do not hesitate to reach out to your child's teacher, our assistant principal Dr. Morgan, or me.  Email will be the best way to reach us.
