Regarding: Update from Gov. Pritzker -Extends Stay and Shelter

Dear Dee-Mack Families:

I hope this message finds you and your families safe and well. Today, Illinois Gov. JB Pritzker announced that remote learning in Illinois will be extended through April 30 in order to slow down the spread of COVID-19. 

During this time, on-site learning will remain suspended but our schools’ commitment to learning and education will remain open and learning will continue for all students - just through a different format.

While it is not ideal, we want to assure you that at Deer Creek-Mackinaw CUSD 701, our teachers and staff are fully engaged and willing to take on this new challenge and push forward with remote learning, engaging with students and continuing with our food distribution program. 

I know this is not the school year that any of us imagined, but I want to thank you for your patience and understanding as we have dealt with this unprecedented situation together.  We realize there will be issues with this new format and students will have Chromebook repair needs- with that in mind, Sharon Boucher and John Embry (our tech gurus) will be available to make repairs by appointment.  Please email or with those needs.  

As a recap here is our remote learning schedule:

March 31-April 3  Remote Learning @ Dee-Mack

April 6- April 10    Spring Break 

April 13- April 17  Remote Learning @ Dee-Mack  (Packet drop off/ pick up April 13)

April 20- April 24  Remote Learning @ Dee-Mack  (Packet drop/off pick up April 20)

April 27- May 1    Remote Learning @ Dee-Mack  (Packet drop/off pick up April 27)

It’s important we continue to work together and support our students.

Be well,

Michele Jacobs
