Happy Monday, Dukes,

As we head into the final week of school, I must admit how sad I am not to bid farewell to our students, staff, and community in person.  Gratitude is the emotion that overwhelms me at this point. As I move onto my next adventure, I am so very thankful for the four years I have shared with such incredible people who have forever made a lasting imprint on my heart.  The memories are endless and the celebrations limitless. As for the class of 2020, it is one of the most resilient I have witnessed. The challenges they have faced in these four short years are pretty extraordinary and now these students have literally ended high school in the most adverse situation any of us have ever endured. I am so proud of them and so honored to have led them.  To the class of 2020, I say, hats off.  You should be very, very proud.  You will make all the difference in a world that consistently challenges you to be your best! 

Please check out York’s website for the awards celebration and the celebration of the Class of 2020.  Our staff came out on Friday to bid the class farewell and that is embedded into the video. 

I wish you all continued health and safety.

Go Dukes!

Do not forget to continuously practice the following non-pharmaceutical interventions:

●     Staying home if sick until at least 24 hours after there is no longer a fever or signs of a fever (without the use of fever-reducing medications).

●     Covering coughs and sneezes with a tissue. Wash your hands following the use of a tissue.

●     Washing hands with soap and water or using hand sanitizer when soap and water is not available.

●     Staying home if you have been exposed to a family or household member who is sick.

●     Covering your nose and mouth with a mask if you are sick and around people or at a mass gathering in a community where the pandemic is already occurring.

●     Consulting your healthcare provider if you have a concern for yourself or a family member shows symptoms of illness.

Travel Advisories
District 205 is dedicated to keeping the school community updated on the latest developments related to the COVID-19 health crisis. Please consult the Health Resources page of the District’s website for updates.

D205 is asking families to evaluate non-essential travel. D205 is following the guidelines and recommendations set forth in the CDC’s Travel Advisory. There are requirements to self-quarantine post travel to Level 3 destinations contained in the advisory link above and advisories highly discouraging cruise travel, which now requires self-quarantine upon return.

Domestic travelers also are asked to evaluate plans if traveling to an area where COVID-19 is spreading.

Again, all non-essential travel is discouraged. Travel advisories are very fluid at this time and can change during travel

The COVID-19 health crisis continues to evolve. If you have health-related questions, the Illinois Public Health Department has developed this graphic for guidance on who to call and when to make a call about symptoms.

Mindfulness and Stress Relief Resources
These are difficult times and our parents and staff may want to speak with someone about the stressors and anxiety related to the COVID-19 health crisis.

D205 employees may contact our Employee Assistance Program at 1-800-955-6422.

The DuPage County Public Health Department also has a Behavioral Health hotline at (630) 627-1700. This service is available 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Anyone may call.

Feliz Lunes a Todos los Duques de York

Conforme llegamos a la última semana oficial de clases, debo de admitir lo triste que me siento de no poder dar la despedida a los estudiantes, el personal y la comunidad en persona. Sin embargo, siento mucha gratitud en este momento de transición para mí. Al mismo tiempo que parto hacia el próximo capítulo de mi vida profesional, quiero expresar mucha gratitud por los últimos cuatro años que he compartido con todas las personas tan increíble que trabajaron y estuvieron a mi alrededor. ¡Todos han dejado una marca en mi corazón! Los recuerdos son interminables y las celebraciones no tuvieron fin. En cuanto a los graduados de la Clase 2020, he sido testigo de su capacidad de resiliencia en su máxima expresión. Los desafíos que enfrentaron en los cuatro cortos años son fuera de lo ordinario, y ahora estos estudiantes han terminado literalmente su preparatoria en la situación más adversa mucho más de lo que nosotros hemos enfrentado en su lugar. Estoy súper orgullosa de ellos y honrada de haber sido su líder. Me quito el sombrero en honor de los graduados de la Clase 2020. Ustedes también deben de sentirse muy orgullosos. ¡Sepan que harán toda la diferencia en el mundo, el mismo  que constantemente los desafiará, sé que ustedes harán su mejor esfuerzo!

Por favor visite nuestra página web para presenciar de manera virtual la celebración de los graduados, Clase 2020 y de sus  reconocimientos. Nuestro personal regresó el viernes para hacer un pequeño video de despedida.

Les deseo que continúen sanos y salvos.

¡Arriba los Duques de York!

Sinceramente,

Erin DeLuga
Directora

●     Cubrirse la nariz y la boca con una máscara si está enfermo y cerca de personas o en una reunión masiva en una comunidad donde la pandemia ya está ocurriendo.

●     Consultar a su proveedor de atención médica si está preocupado por usted o un miembro de la familia muestra síntomas de enfermedad.

El Distrito escolar 205 está consultando con el gobierno y los oficiales de sanidad las últimas restricciones en relación a viajes dentro del marco de los últimos acontecimientos con motivo del brote del COVID-19 para mantener informada y actualizada a nuestra comunidad escolar durante esta crisis.  Por favor consulte la página web  Health Resources y la página del Distrito escolar website para obtener las últimas actualizaciones.

Advertencia de Viaje
El Distrito Escolar 205 está pidiendo a la comunidad escolar  que reevalúe todo plan de viaje que no sea esencial. El D205 está también siguiendo los lineamientos sobre Advertencia de Viajes Travel Advisory del  Departamento Central de Control y Prevención de Enfermedades, CDC. Es importante que sepa que hay un requerimiento de ponerse en cuarentena después de un viaje a algún destino enlistado dentro del nivel 3 de restricciones, dichos destinos están enlistados en la conexión arriba mencionada, incluyendo viajes en cruceros, los mismos requieren ahora una auto cuarentena mandatoria a su regreso.  

Les pedimos también a los viajeros en vuelos domésticos Domestic  que re-evalúen sus planes de viaje si acaso planean ir a una área donde el COVID-19 se está esparciendo con rapidez.

De nuevo, estamos desalentando todo viaje que no sea esencial. Las advertencias de viaje están cambiando con rapidez y puede haber cambios drásticos durante su viaje.

Read More about Principal's Newsletter - May 18

Thank you for the high level of interest in registering independently to attend Summer School with a third-party provider this summer.

The purpose of this updated communication is to provide parents and students (currently in Grades 8-11) with new information (and some added flexibility and clarity) regarding four points of clarification below for Summer School in District 205:

  1. The previously-issued notice of a time constraint of May 12th was an enrollment deadline for Term 1 of Illinois Virtual School, one third-party provider, which ONLY APPLIED TO STUDENTS seeking immediate enrollment in Term 1 with Illinois Virtual School (meaning a student would be attending Summer School now in Term 1 while also still attending York High School).
  2. Given the last days of school on May 21st for 8th grade students, and May 22nd for 9th - 11th grade students, students are advised to enroll in Term 2 of Summer School - if seeking to attend Illinois Virtual School (for Term 2, there is no rush to enroll).
  3. ***Term 2 of Summer School with Illinois Virtual School begins June 2nd and the final deadline for enrollment in Term 2 is June 16th.***
  4. Please note, upon submitting an enrollment request for Term 2 of Summer School with Illinois Virtual School, there is some processing time that will occur between the time/date of submission and the notice of confirmation. If you previously submitted an enrollment request with Illinois Virtual School, it is currently in-process with notice of confirmation for enrollment in Term 2 forthcoming. Thank you for your patience, and our apologies for any inconvenience.

The following plan for Summer School in 2020 was developed by the York High School administration in concert with the District Office administration, and is provided for families currently enrolled in District 205 Summer School, as well as families considering these possible new Summer School opportunities available with a third-party virtual provider. 

Q1: How will York High School and District 205 administer Summer School during the COVID-19 school closure?

District 205 will utilize third-party providers, such as Illinois Virtual School, to provide students with an opportunity for remote Summer School courses. Specific courses with Illinois Virtual School have been pre-approved in advance by York High School, although Summer School for 2020 will not involve York High School faculty.

Please note that the information provided within this FAQ relates specifically to the Illinois Virtual School; yet, students and families can choose a provider listed within the Illinois Virtual Course Catalog of providers approved by the Illinois State Board of Education.

Q2: If previously registered for Summer School at York High School, what will happen next?

All prior student registrations for Summer School at York High School initially planned for this summer will be cancelled, and families will be issued a refund in one of the following forms:

●     For families who paid with a credit card, the refund will be applied to the credit card used to make the original payment.

●     For families who paid with cash/check, the refund will be applied to the students' PushCoin account (The PushCoin account can be used to pay student registration fees, sports, field trips, lunches, etc.).

●     For students not enrolled at York High School who originally paid with cash/check, the refund will be applied in the form of a check mailed to their home address.

If still interested in attending Summer School through a third-party provider, such as the Illinois Virtual School, students and parents must re-register individually with the provider using the following guidance.

Q3: Can students who were not previously registered for Summer School at York High School now register for Summer School with Illinois Virtual School?

Yes, the opportunity for students to attend Illinois Virtual School for Summer School this year is now available to all students currently in grades 8-11, as the students/families assume responsibility for all associated fees and the registration process.

Q4: If interested in attending Summer School with Illinois Virtual School this summer, how do I register? What is the cost for a course? What are the important dates?

In order to register at Illinois Virtual School, students must first create an Illinois Virtual School Student Account. More information on that, and the process for enrolling in a course, can be found by clicking HERE. Full Service courses cost $240, while credit recovery courses cost $95.

Q5: If interested in attending Summer School with a third-party virtual provider, such as Illinois Virtual School, how many courses can a student take and earn as transferable credit at York High School? How do students earn credit?

In accordance with Board of Education Policy (6:310), students may earn up to a maximum of two (2) units of credit from a third-party provider (such as Summer School with the Illinois Virtual School). This equates to either two (2) semester-long courses or one (1) year-long course.

After completing the Summer School course, students (families) will need to complete the following step during the first three weeks of Semester One in Fall 2020 in order to receive credit approval:

●     Submit the course transcript(s) and a completed Approval of Outside Credit Form (available by clicking HERE) to their counselor, or the Assistant Principal for Instruction, Dr. Adam Roubitcheck.

 

Q6: Which courses will be made available for students to take via the Illinois Virtual School for approved, transferable credit at York High School?

For students transitioning into grades 9-12 (current 8th - 11th graders), the following courses have been approved for credit this summer with the Illinois Virtual School:

●     Computer Programming

●     Consumer Economics (in lieu of Auto Consumer Economics, Introduction to Business, or Introduction to FCS)

●     English 9, 10, 11, or 12 (for Credit Recovery only)

●     Health (for English Language Learners only)

●     Algebra (for Credit Recovery only)

●     Geometry

●     Algebra 2

●     PreCalculus

●     Sociology

Should there be any changes to state-issued health and safety allowances, it is the goal of District 205 to continue to provide three (3) Summer Bridge Courses (Bridge to Algebra, Bridge to Science Inquiry, and Bridge to Humanities) at the final week of summer leading into the 2020-21 school year. These Bridge Courses are designed for in-person student support and orientation based on specific student needs. Students qualifying for Bridge Courses will be contacted directly in advance to assess student availability and interest in the possible programming.

Q7: What if my student needs technology support and/or a device during Summer School?

Technical support will be available from District 205 technology staff by emailing  ELearningHelp@elmhurst205.org. This email is operational on weekdays only and actively monitored between 7:30 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. When an email is submitted, a work ticket will be created and assigned to the appropriate staff member.

Students who currently have a District 205 Chromebook on loan (checked out for Remote E-Learning use) may keep the loaner device through the end of Summer School if needed. Students that do not have access to a Chromebook will be issued a device for use this summer; or, the student will be issued their York High School Freshman Chromebook for use (prior to the start of Summer School).

If students do not have access to a working District 205-issued device or personal technology for Summer School, students can submit a request in advance using the following form. Students will then be contacted to confirm that a repair/replacement is possible and any additional detailed instructions.

To request device assistance, please click and fill out this form: D205 Technology Assistance Request.

Q8: Which courses will no longer be made available for students this summer?

The following courses will be canceled: Astronomy, Broadcast Communications, Chef’s Corner, Criminology, Current Events in Social Studies, Driver Education, Forensic Science, French, Italian, Journalism, Music Production, Spanish, and Summer Theater Conservatory. Please note that in-person PLTW courses previously occurring in grades 6-8 have also been cancelled for the approaching summer.

Q9: Given COVID-19, what are the plans for the District 205 Summer Music Program this summer 2020?

After careful consideration, District 205 has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Summer Music Program. Given the wide range of challenges faced due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this program cannot be successfully executed in its intended format. All prior student registrations for the District 205 Summer Music Program will be issued a refund in one of the following forms:

●     Families who paid with a credit card, the refund will be applied to the credit card used to make the original payment.

●     For families who paid with cash/check, the refund will be applied to the students' PushCoin account (The PushCoin account can be used to pay student registration fees, sports, field trips, lunches, etc.).

●     For students not enrolled in District 205 who originally paid with cash/check, the refund will be applied in the form of a check mailed to their home address.

Should you have any additional questions, please contact the District Fine and Performing Arts Coordinator, Mr. Patrick Baker, via email at pbaker@elmhurst205.org.

Q10: Which additional supports and programs will District 205 administer to support students?

Federal funds are currently allocated through Title I programming to support children from qualifying families related to low-income to help ensure that all children meet academic standards. Title I programs typically run from June through July Monday through Thursday. This year, online literacy and math instruction is in development for qualifying students.

Extended School Year (ESY) is Summer School programming for students with disabilities.  The Student Services Department's ESY program will be conducted remotely from June 8th through July 9th. Plans are in development for how specific services will be provided for students eligible to participate from Early Childhood through Transition.

Should you have any additional questions not addressed in this FAQ, please contact the York High School Summer School Coordinator, Mr. Mike DiNovo, via email at mdinovo@elmhurst205.org.

Dear D205 Families,

A link to a video version of this message is available here. This afternoon, Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker issued a statement in which he suspended in-person learning for the remainder of the 2019-20 school year. At the April 28th Elmhurst Community Unit School District 205 Board of Education meeting, the administration will present the board of education with options to consider for how District 205 moves forward with upcoming events such as graduation and summer school. Separate communications will be developed and released early next week with detailed information about athletics, activities, and other activities that were originally scheduled for or postponed until May.  

Today was the first of five remote professional learning days for teachers. The purpose of these days is to give teachers the time to plan engaging and meaningful lessons for students, develop strategies to support students and families, ensure consistency of expectations for the amount of work students are being asked to do and the manner in which feedback is provided and grades are determined, and to increase the teachers’ collective ability to leverage digital tools in ways that promote rigor, personalization of learning, and student engagement. I emphasized these things when I addressed the teachers this morning, and reiterated the importance of trying to find creative ways to personally connect with students.  

In his address, the governor stated that, “the unprecedented circumstances”  dictate that grades should be about feedback, not a tool for compliance. Today’s communication provides updated information on assessment during this period of remote learning and should serve to provide clarity on how grades will be calculated at each grade level. If you have additional questions, please direct them to your child’s teachers.

All of our families are in my thoughts and prayers every day.  Stay well.

Dr. David Moyer
Superintendent
Elmhurst Community Unit School District 205

Estimadas Familias del Distrito Escolar 205,

Un enlace a una versión de video en ingles de este mensaje está disponible aqui. Esta tarde, el Gobernador de Illinois J.B. Pritzker emitió una declaración en la que suspendió el aprendizaje en persona por el resto del año escolar 2019-20. En la reunión de la Junta de Educación del Distrito Escolar 205 de la Unidad Comunitaria Elmhurst del 28 de Abril, la Administración presentará a la Junta de Educación opciones para considerar cómo avanza el Distrito 205 con los próximos eventos, como la graduación y la escuela de verano. Se desarrollarán y publicarán comunicaciones separadas a principios de la próxima semana con información detallada sobre atletismo, actividades y otras actividades que originalmente fueron programadas o pospuestas hasta Mayo.  

Hoy fue el primero de cinco días remotos de aprendizaje profesional para maestros. El propósito de estos días es darles a los maestros el tiempo para planificar lecciones interesantes y significativas para los estudiantes, desarrollar estrategias para apoyar a los estudiantes y sus familias, garantizar la coherencia de las expectativas sobre la cantidad de trabajo que se les pide a los estudiantes y la forma en que se reciben los comentarios. se proporcionan y se determinan las calificaciones, y para aumentar la capacidad colectiva de los maestros para aprovechar las herramientas digitales de manera que promuevan el rigor, la personalización del aprendizaje y la participación de los estudiantes. Hice hincapié en estas cosas cuando me dirigí a los maestros esta mañana, y reiteré la importancia de tratar de encontrar formas creativas para conectarse personalmente con los estudiantes.

En su discurso, el gobernador declaró que, "las circunstancias sin precedentes" dictan que las calificaciones deben ser sobre la retroalimentación, no una herramienta para el cumplimiento. La comunicación de hoy proporciona información actualizada sobre la evaluación durante este período de aprendizaje remoto y debe servir para proporcionar claridad sobre cómo se calcularán las calificaciones en cada nivel de grado. Si tiene preguntas adicionales, diríjalas a los maestros de su hijo(a).

Todas nuestras familias están en mis pensamientos y oraciones todos los días. Mantenganse bien.

Dr. David Moyer

The Elmhurst Community Unit School District 205 Board of Education approved the appointment of Dr. Shahe Bagdasarian as the new principal of York High School. He will begin his duties on July 1, 2020.

Dr. Shahe Bagdasarian returns to Elmhurst D205 from Glenbard East High School in Lombard, IL where he currently serves as principal. He began his career as a special education teacher and football coach at Elmwood Park High School, Elmwood Park, IL as well as a special education teacher and case manager at York High School. Dr. Bagdasarian went on to become dean of students at York before his career took him to Glenbard East H.S., where he served as both assistant principal for student services and then assistant principal for instruction until assuming the principalship in 2015.

In addition, Shahe holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Special Education from the State of New York – College of Buffalo and a Master of Science Degree in Special Education from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. He will graduate with his doctorate degree in educational leadership and policy studies from the Urbana-Champaign campus this May.

Dr. Bagdasarian will focus on supporting students academically and social emotionally in order to maximize learning and strengthening the communication and collaboration with D205 middle schools to best prepare and meet the needs of students as they transition to high school.

“He has a proven track record of improving student performance and ensuring that individual departments achieve goals for student growth that are consistent with school and district priorities. This has included an intense focus on ensuring consistency in assessment practices in line with current research,” D205 Superintendent Dr. David Moyer said.

“He also led a focus on equity that has increased access to rigorous curriculum and other school opportunities for all students and implemented the supports necessary to ensure that all students learn and grow.  Part of his approach was intentional articulation of school improvement planning with feeder middle schools, which will translate well to District 205. His talents and experiences are a perfect fit for York at this time. I look forward to beginning our working relationship," Dr. Moyer added.

Of his return, Dr. Bagdasarian shared his excitement to lead York High School for this next generation of learners:

“It is an honor to return to District 205 as the Principal of York High School and serve the Elmhurst community. York Community High School has a strong tradition of academic, athletic and extracurricular excellence.”
