LEARN is monitoring updates related to the outbreak of the Coronavirus (COVID-19). We are following guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Chicago Department of Public Health (DCPH). This is a rapidly changing situation, and we will continue to keep you informed about any development and changes at our schools. Use our website to find information for your scholar and family:
Partnering with our Families
LEARN is in constant communication with our families in order to best support our scholars. We are providing home delivered food, computers, hotspots, and more.
Update Your Information
It is extremely important to have your contact information (email, phone number, address, etc.) up-to-date. Please update your information in PowerSchool, or call your Office Manager to have it updated.
Letters from the Network
As LEARN prepares for the 2020-2021 school year, we will be emailing you with the latest information. As we continue to make decisions, these emails will provide you with the most current updates.
Remote Learning Program
We worked with our parents throughout the summer to develop a high-quality Remote Learning Program. We survey parents monthly and meet with a Parent Advisory Council to ensure that we are providing scholars with the support they need. We are so proud of our student’s academic gains this year while learning remotely.

Know How It Spreads
- The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus.
- The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person.
- Between people who are in close contact with one another (about 6 feet).
- Through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes or talks.
- These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs.
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing.
- If soap and water are unavailable, use a hand sanitizer with an alcohol level of at least 60%.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- Stay at home as much as possible.
- Put distance between yourself and other people.
Cover your mouth and nose with a cloth face cover when around others.
- As recommended by the CDC, everyone should wear a cloth face cover when they have to go out in public, for example to the grocery store or to pick up other necessities.
- Cloth face coverings should not be placed on young children under the age of 2 or anyone who has trouble breathing
- The cloth face cover is meant to protect other people in case you are infected.
- Do NOT use a facemask meant for a healthcare worker.
- Continue to keep about 6 feet between yourself and others. The face cover is not a substitute for social distancing.
Cover Coughs and Disinfect
- Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then immediately throw the tissue in the trash. If you don’t have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your elbow instead of your hands.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
Individuals with chronic health issues and/or individuals experiencing severe systems should be evaluated by a medical professional. If you need help identifying a source of primary medical care, please call 773-533-KIDS.
Supporting your child emotionally
We recognize the coronavirus can have an emotional impact on all of us, and can be scary and confusing for children. We encourage families and caregivers to engage in conversations with their scholars and help them process any fears or anxiety. Please use the following as resources to help guide your conversation:
