Use of I-Pads, reminder from Superintendent

Dear OES Families,
Per the 1:1 Parent/Student iPad User Agreement, students should not log in to any other accounts other than the student’s district approved Apple ID and Google account.
If families are using their own Apple ID for personal use on the iPads, including downloading apps, we ask that you please refrain from doing so per the agreement. It is a security issue.
Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.

Remote Learning Plan

Please view the attached document to review the Remote Learning Plan for Ottawa Elementary. When reviewing the document, please focus on 'Plan A' and 'Plan B'- as those are the plans that will be utilized to start the school year. 
  • Remote Learning Plans (Overview)

    The Ottawa Elementary School District has created four Remote Learning Plans to meet various scenarios that may occur throughout the school year. Plans can be reviewed on (pg. 7) of this document. A description of when each plan might be used is as follows:

    • Plan A- Blended with All Students (½ Day In-Person with PM Remote Learning).

      • When all students are able to be in attendance at the same time, however mandated restrictions are still in effect and limit the ability of Ottawa Elementary to provide a full day in-person attendance option.

    • Plan B- Parents Opting for Full Remote Learning (During Blended or Hybrid Model)

      • While operating under a blended or hybrid plan that includes some type of in-person instruction(Plans A & D), parents may request for their child to participate in a full remote learning program. 

    • Plan C- District-Wide Remote Learning- Full Closure (Full Remote Learning)

      • During a school closure that prevents Ottawa Elementary from providing any type of in-person instruction per mandates set forth by ISBE, the Governor, the Illinois Department of Public Health, or any other reason as determined by the Superintendent.

    • Plan D- Hybrid with Restricted Student Attendance (Student A Group/Student B Group)

      • In-person instruction may occur but strict social distancing guidelines must be adhered to which would require limited student attendance at any given time. 

Daily Attendance- Teacherease

Daily attendance will be taken for students participating in full remote learning. In order for students to be marked as 'present', parents must log into their Teacherease account to check their child(ren) in. All students in the same household may be checked in at the same time. Students may also check-in for attendance by logging into their student Teacherease account.
