Dear Hayt Families,
The Chicago Teachers Union and the Chicago Public Schools have come to an agreement. Below are the dates for those students who have elected to return to school in person. Remote instruction will continue to be an option and any changes from remote learning to in-person learning can be done for the 4th quarter. Please carefully review the information and let me know if you have any questions by emailing me at dagomez@cps.edu.


Daniel Gomez, Principal

Uniform Policy for In Person Learners:
We will be suspending our uniform policy. Please have your child wear comfortable clothes that are able to be machine washed and dried at hot settings. Dress for the weather and send your child to school with two masks (although we have extras at school).
Health Screener Information:

1. Parents/guardians/students must complete the health screener each morning prior to arriving at school: cps.edu/healthscreener. A student is not allowed into the building without completing the health screener.
2. The check-in includes the teacher seeing if parents have completed the screener and taking a temperature. If a student is checked-in, then he/she may proceed further into the building. If a student fails the check-in and is unaccompanied, the student must be taken to the care room.
3. If a student arrives without a completed screener and is unaccompanied by a parent, the student will be taken to another space where the parent is called to answer the screener questions.
a. If the student passes the screener, the student may remain.
b. If the student fails the screener, then the students must wait in the care room until a parent arrives.
4. If a student arrives without a completed screener, is unaccompanied by a parent, and the parent cannot be reached, the student is allowed to respond to all screener questions if able.


The school entry process will go quickly if everyone has completed the health screener prior to leaving the house. We are asking you to please stay with your child until they enter the building in case there has been an issue with the screener.

You need your child’s student ID or student email address to complete the screener. Email Ms. Guerrero at aguerrero59@cps.edu or Ms. Reyes at gmreyes4@cps.edu if you cannot find this information.

The line for the Health Screener will be outside, so please dress appropriately for the weather.

Breakfast in the Classroom:
Breakfast will be set up at two different stations to coordinate with the designated entrances for student arrival.

Students can pick up their breakfast at the stations located by either door #1 or door #3.

There will only be ONE option for breakfast and it will be bagged and ready to go for students to quickly retrieve and report to their classrooms where they will eat their meals.
