D76 Family Communication Update

March 17, 2020

Dear Families,



Distance Learning Opportunities (DLO) are available on our website at the following link. You/your child should click on the link to access learning opportunities for your child’s appropriate grade level.  These activities have been created by each classroom/department teacher to maintain learning virtually during the mandated school closures.  If you/your child have any questions related to the DLO, please email your child’s teacher and/or principal. All email addresses are available on each school website.  



If you are in need of internet services, Comcast is providing 60 free days of “free” internet essentials for any new customers. Click here to apply for Internet Essentials. 



If you/your child have technology related questions/issues during the DLO, please reach out via email address/phone number below:
