Mr. Brian Rucinski
Dear Meteor Families,
I’d like to welcome everyone to the 2020-2021 school year. At this point, you are likely aware that TF North and D215 will be starting the year remotely for at least the first 9 weeks of the school year. We desperately want our students back in the building, however it simply is not safe to do so at this time. We have been working hard to create a remote learning experience that gives our students every opportunity possible to engage in their classes and receive social, emotional, and academic support through the various services that we will provide.
On the academic side, students will attend live synchronous sessions for each of their classes daily. Additionally, we are working to make supports and tutoring available to our students daily at the conclusion of their live classes.
We also know that our students both want and need social and emotional support throughout these difficult times. Between recent racial injustices that have occurred, a worldwide pandemic, and an economic downturn, the last five months have had a profound impact on young adults in our community and across the country. While learning and supports are taking place remotely, it is important to remember that we are still a fully functioning school. We continue to have social workers, counselors, psychiatrists, deans and deans’ assistants available to support our students. Additionally, we are excited to announce that we have partnered with Hartgrove Behavioral Health System to offer individual, group, and family counseling. If you are interested in these services, please reach out to your child’s counselor or call or text Hartgrove directly at (312) 399-2361 to set up a consultation.
The first day of class is Monday, August 17th and it will be important for your child to log into their email to receive important information regarding attending virtual classes.
