COVID-19 Closure Resources

Note that any updates will be made as new information becomes available. We will continue to communicate important updates to families via text, email, social media, and this website.

We hope that your family is safe and healthy and we look forward to the day our whole Team and Family is reunited. In the meantime we’ve shifted your KIPPsters learning to using remote resources like Clever, Google Classrooms, and Zoom. We believe in the power of a KIPP education, and will not let this global crisis deny opportunities for our students to access it. We are proud to say that your child will have access to the SAME lessons as would if they were in school. Rather than printing independent work packets or recommending external app programs, KIPP Chicago teachers are uploading their entire curriculum to Google Classroom.

This guide provides details on access online resources as well as school-related information about resources available to you during these unprecedented times. Do not hesitate to reach out to your school’s principal or any of your student’s teachers with questions as we navigate this new way of learning together as one team and family.
