Today: Teacher Institute / Work Day longfellow
So what do teachers really do when students get to sleep in on a rainy day off school? They are busy in their buildings - LEARNING!
Today, elementary teachers throughout the District are reviewing student data and analytics, planning for the Next Generation Science Standards recently approved by the Board of Education and working in their teacher teams to strategically plan student learning opportunities. 
Longfellow teachers (pictured above) worked in teams this morning to discover digital storytelling resources like ChatterPix Kids, Adobe Voice and Make Beliefs Comix that they can model and share with students. Digital storytelling resources are exciting tools that allow students to creatively write, illustrate and even animate stories in a digital format
Middle and high school teachers were finishing up end of semester work.

In the event of cold weather...
It's that time of year where severe weather may result in a weather related school closure. The optimal time frame to make an accurate and informed decision to cancel school due to inclement weather is in the early morning. We will always do our best to communicate any school closures with families by 5:30 a.m.   
If severe weather is forecast, parents are encouraged to prepare child care in the event of school closure. The Wheaton Park District offers Extreme Weather Drop-In Child Care
