REMOTE Learning In District 161

Dear District 161 parents and guardians,

We hope that everyone is staying healthy and safe during these challenging times.

Welcome to the District 161 remote learning hub! While onsite schools are closed due to the Coronavirus outbreak, we have transitioned to remote learning. Our goal is to prioritize the health and safety of our students and staff while continuing to move learning forward for the remainder of the onsite school closure. Thank you for supporting your child during the on-site school closure. We will continue to provide updates on the school closure and remote learning in District 161.

Thank you,

Amabel Crawford

Director of Learning and Instruction

Flossmoor School District 161
