Parents Welcome Letter

August 10, 2020
George M Pullman Elementary School Parents and Guardians:
Mayor Lori E. Lightfoot, the Chicago Department of Public Health (CDPH) and Chicago Public Schools (CPS) today announced that the 2020-21 CPS school year will begin remotely on September 8 based on trends in public health data and survey results from parents which indicate that a large percentage of parents are not yet comfortable sending their children to school. Chicago has seen an uptick in COVID-19 cases in recent weeks that has public health officials concerned about the implications for in-person learning. The district will implement remote learning through the first quarter and work with CDPH to determine if it is safe to open with a hybrid learning model in the second quarter, which begins on November 9.
Please frequent this website for CPS updates, our REMIND text updates, and the CARDINAL CONNECTIONS, our newsletter, for updated information. Teachers are busy planning for virtual instruction to keep students academically engaged. Stay tuned for more updates as we work to prepare devices and materials for you to pick up on behalf of students so they are ready do learn on September 8, 2020!
Your partnership during this time is more important than ever. We greatly appreciate all of your hard work and your support during this challenging time.
Please stay safe. Practice social distancing. Wear your masks.
Principal Romeldia Salter
