    Dear Parents and Community Members:

     

    I hope this message finds you and your families safe and well. Today, Illinois Gov. JB Pritzker announced that remote learning in Illinois will be extended through April 30 in order to slow down the spread of COVID-19. 

     

    During this time, on-site learning will remain suspended but our schools’ commitment to learning and education will remain open and learning will continue for all students - just through a different format.

     

    While it is not ideal, we want to assure you that at Hampton School District 29, our teachers and staff are fully engaged and willing to take on this new challenge and push forward with remote learning, engaging with students and continuing with our food distribution program. 

     

    I know this is not the school year that any of us imagined, but I want to thank you for your patience and understanding as we have dealt with this unprecedented situation together. 

     

    As a recap, here are the three priorities for our leadership and planning moving forward:

     

    Priority 1 - Feed and care for the extended safety, health, and welfare of students, families, non-student children, staff, and community at large.

    Priority 2 - Communicate clearly; share coherent, organized and controlled messages with our staff, students and community.

    Priority 3 - Provide for the continuity of learning in Illinois

     

    It’s important we continue to work together and support our students. Thanks again. 

     

    Hampton Together,

    Remote Learning Plan

        Hampton School District staff members believe strongly that continuing the education of their students in these challenging times is of the utmost importance. To assist in preparing our students to be successful upon their return to school, a Remote Learning Plan has been developed to help guide students and families in their efforts to continue their learning while at home.

    Curriculum

        Students in grades kindergarten through grade five will receive curriculum packets created by their classroom teachers.  Additional information and guidance may be provided electronically through the use of Google Classroom and Remind platforms depending on the grade level. Materials shared are aligned with the recognized learning standards and may include opportunities for new learning and review in multiple core and elective content areas.

        Students in grades six through eight will receive their curriculum electronically through the use of Google Classroom and additional formats depending on the content areas. All students should retain their Chromebooks for use in completing their work. Students who wish to have hard copies of the material to be reviewed and completed may obtain those at the school. It is the district’s intention to attempt to meet the needs of every student throughout our remote learning time period.  The district will use all staff and all available resources to assist both students and families. Packet pick up for grades kindergarten through five and  students in grades six through eight who wish to have hard copies of materials is scheduled for April 13 and April 27.  When picking up packets please follow all social distancing guidelines while on school property. Packet pick up schedule:

    A-D 8:00 - 9:00 am

    E-J 9:00 - 10:00 am

    K-P 10:00 - 11:00 am

    Q-S 11:00 - Noon

    T-Z Noon - 1:00 pm

    Contacting Your Teacher

         Students and parents are encouraged to check in with their teachers daily.  The use of email, Remind, text messaging and phone calls are all acceptable means of communication. Some teachers may also use occasional video conferencing through Zoom and Google Meets to help provide guidance and answer questions. All teachers will be available from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m. each day Monday through Friday to help students and parents with their work. April 9th and April 23rd will be designated as Remote Learning Planning Days and teachers will not be available for assistance during their regular times on those days. Teachers may still provide assistance after 2 p.m. on regular days but response times may be longer. Teachers will also attempt to make contact with parents at least once per week to offer assistance wherever needed. If family phone numbers change as they sometimes do or families have additional email addresses that are needed for communication, please contact the school and teachers with the new information.

    Additional Important Information

        We will attempt to keep the school open from 8 a.m. until 3 p.m. Monday through Friday.  If students need additional school supplies or materials from their classroom or their lockers, we will be glad to retrieve those items and bring them to the doors of the school for pick up.  We will also continue to offer meals to anyone eighteen years of age or younger regardless of if they are a students at Hampton 29 or not.  We will provide three meals for each individual to take with them on each Tuesday and Thursday from 11:30 until 12:30 each day. Please follow posted social distancing guidelines while picking up all meals.

         When we are given the opportunity to return to regular schooling, the building will once again be thoroughly cleaned in advance of student and staff arrival.  An additional Remote Learning Planning Day is planned immediately prior to student arrival which will allow teachers the opportunity to ensure that everything is ready for their students to return.

    Note to Students

         We understand how difficult it is to be out of your routine at this time.  We want and need you to focus on the materials provided as you prepare to return at some point in the near future. Please know that your teachers are all here to support you in your work and are willing to go to great lengths to assist you wherever needed. You can do it!

Announcements

  • Attention Hampton Parents:

     

    Due to the ongoing challenges of limiting the spread of the Corona virus. Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker has ordered all public schools closed beginning Tuesday, March 17th through Tuesday March 30th. Out of an abundance of caution as we have families that were traveling over spring break to other parts of the country that may have had higher concentrations of the virus, after discussion with our school board we have decided to close our school immediately and not wait until the 17th. We have been in contact with the Moline Two Rivers YMCA and they have agreed to provide child care for families if needed. Please contact the Two Rivers YMCA at 309-797-3945 for additional information. As the school situation remains very fluid, please visit the school website often and be ready for occasional updates via email or text message when they become available. We apologize for all of the inconvenience this will undoubtedly cause.

    Update as of 3/16/2020

    Dear Hampton Families,

     

         These are clearly extraordinary times in the Hampton School District 29 and beyond.  As Governor Pritzker has announced, all schools state wide will be closed from March 17 through March 30th. Governor Pritzker has declared those days “Act of God” days and as such, those days will not have to be made up. After a discussion with school board members, the district decided to close on the 16th as we had many families returning from spring vacation that may have been in areas where there were cases of the Coronavirus.  To bring everyone back together for a day may have posed a significant threat to our students and staff. We may need to use an emergency day on April 13th as the 16th was not deemed an ”Act of God” day by the governor.

         In an effort to help our students and families, the state board of education has asked districts to make every effort to provide a continuity of education during these difficult times. We will have both distance learning and / or e-learning at select grade levels. To that end, staff agreed to return to the building to plan and coordinate curriculum to be provided to students for the next several weeks.  Students in grades kindergarten through grade five will receive packets of materials that can be reviewed and completed at home. Third quarter grades will be included in the packets for students in grades K through five. Students in grades six through eight can pick up packets in the science room or receive their materials on line through their Google classroom. Grades for students in grades six through eight can be picked up in the office during regular school hours.

         A schedule has been developed which will allow students to come to the building to pick up their packets, books and materials from their classrooms and lockers. This will allow for smaller numbers of students to retrieve everything while maintaining social distancing as suggested by the Center for Disease Control. Please adhere to the schedule as much as possible and report to the building at the time noted for students based on the first letter of your last name.

    Wednesday, March 18th:

    A-D 8:00am – 9:00am

    E-J 9:00am – 10:00am

    K-P 10:00am – 11:00am

    Q-S 11:00am – Noon

    T-Z Noon – 1:00pm

     

         In addition to the curriculum to be provided, our district will be offering grab and go sack lunches on certain days that students may pick up between 11:30 and 12:30 outside of the school. This week, students may pick up lunches on Tuesday and Thursday.  We will make an effort to have two days’ worth of lunches for students each pick up day. Please call the school if possible to tell us if you will be picking up lunches for your child.  This will allow us to have enough on hand for those that want them.

         We understand how difficult it is for families during this incredibly challenging time in the region.  We will communicate all necessary information for students and families as it becomes available.  Please check district and classroom websites often and call the school with questions as needed.  Our school nurse has provided important health information that you will find helpful as we all attempt to limit the spread of the virus.  You will find that information on our school website and it will be updated as new information is shared from the county health department. Thanks to everyone for their patience.  Please help support those in need when you have the opportunity. Hampton together!

    Update as of 3/20/20

    Hampton Parents,

         Governor Pritzker has announced this afternoon that all Illinois residents are required to shelter in place until April 7th.  The shelter in place directive goes in to effect at 5 p.m. on Saturday, March 21st.  To that end, the Hampton School District staff will continue to provide learning opportunities for our students.  Teachers will continue to provide curriculum, suggest educational websites and provide other important information for their students while the directive is in place. Please continue to monitor all school communication channels including the district website and individual classroom websites for new information.  

         Next week, we will again offer grab and go lunches for students on Tuesday and Thursday from 11:30 - 12:30 at the school. Anyone 18 and under may have a lunch.  Students will receive two lunches each on Tuesday and three on Thursday. We have received a number of offers from local internet providers this week for discounted internet service during this difficult time. Those that meet criteria can receive service for as low as $9.95 per month.  Call your local providers for additional information.  

    Please contact the school if you have questions. Be safe and be healthy!

    Update as of 3/30/2020

    Hampton Families,

         This afternoon Governor Pritzker announced the extension of our state wide Remote Learning Days through April 30th.  Although the announcement was not unexpected and everyone fully supports any and all efforts to limit the spread of COVID-19, we share everyone's disappointment that our students cannot return to normal schooling at Hampton 29 through the month of April.  Know that the staff at Hampton are ready to meet this challenge and will continue to provide quality learning opportunities.  In the next several days we will post a Remote Learning Plan that will be helpful in allowing parents and students to plan when help will be available and how we will continue to provide assistance going forward. Rest assured we will help our students on their learning journey at every opportunity.  We regret the inconvenience this undoubtedly causes and look forward to continuing to work with all of our Hampton 29 families during this difficult time. Stay safe and stay healthy! Hampton together!
