Dear Beaubien Bulldogs,


I hope this letter finds everyone safe and healthy.  Happy Easter for our families who celebrate Easter. My husband and I have been having family Zoom meetings to keep in touch.  If you haven’t tried it yet, I highly recommend it. A very BIG THANK YOU to all of our essential workers! This includes our lunch staff and security who are passing out hundreds of bags of food everyday.  Beaubien will continue to be a food location. Please come to door #10 on Winnemac to receive 3 days worth of food for breakfast and lunch, Monday-Friday, 9-1:00.


Monday, April 13th starts “Remote” Learning. We can do this! If you haven’t already, please check in with your child’s teacher to know the expectations for our students everyday. My message to our teachers has been to KEEP IT SIMPLE.  My three boys have been “e-learning” for the last 3 weeks and it is challenging. Stay calm and stay the course. Please let your child’s homeroom teacher know if you have any concerns. Teachers will be taking “attendance” and making sure students are completing their work.  Keep in mind, grades can only help a student at this time. However, if a student does not complete an assignment, it will be marked as incomplete and students will be expected to complete it when we return to school. 


Just a reminder, our city and state leaders are calling for us to tighten up on compliance with the Stay at Home Order. The Beaubien playground and turf are CLOSED. We are in a public health crisis. Everyone enjoy and cherish your family and friends! For those of you who are bored, remember that boredom is a great gift (especially for kids) that can spur creativity and innovation and so much more.  Last week was National Assistant Principal Appreciation Week. Mr. Kotis is wonderful and brings so much to the Beaubien community. Please consider sending him a word of appreciation or encouragement during this time.


If you need help locating medical care, please reach out to the CPS Office of Student Health & Wellness at or by calling the Healthy CPS Hotline 773-553-KIDS (5437). If you or your child has a fever, cough, or difficulty breathing, please contact the CDPH at 312-746-SICK (7425).


Sending everyone, warm wishes of health, safety and love,


Michelle H. Ludford
