Hope you are all staying safe and connected online (at least).
Dear Irving Parents and Guardians:
As we prepared today’s newsletter, we recognize how different things are this Sunday from last. Our students begin eLearning tomorrow, and all Irving related events are either canceled or in a “TBD” zone between now and the end of the year. As you are aware, Governor Pritzker declared all schools closed through March 30th. We anticipate knowing before that date whether we will return post-spring break or if eLearning will continue. In the meantime. We hope the information we provide throughout this edition of the newsletter proves helpful.
– Your Irving PTO Communications Team
