Submit your yearbook picture! Students should use the link provided by their teacher or email a yearbook-appropriate portrait to jnicolosi@wps60.org by Spring Break.


Schedules

Make sure to follow the remote learning schedule provided in the district's parent handbook. Students should be checking in daily to all classes and having their attendance confirmed by their teacher by attending class.

Remote Learning Websites are Live

New classroom websites are live! Benny's remote learning websites contain information about teachers and their classroom, and will list assignments that students are to complete each week. This is not a substitute for Google Classroom; all student work will be there. This tool is a way for parents to keep track of what's going on in your child's grade level and classes. Please be patient as this is still in construction, and not all teachers have had time to complete their pages. If you cannot find information from a teacher your child has, make sure your child checks email and Remind for information.
