Digital Learning FAQ

How long will we be learning from home?

As of the Governor's announcement on April 17, all Illinois school buildings, including Josephinum, must remain closed through the end of the school year. We will continue with Digital Learning through June 9th (May 22nd for Seniors).

Can we get into the building?

No. After Friday, March 13th the building will be closed until further notice

Do we still attend events, practices, games, field trips, etc?

No, any type of physical meeting is canceled until we reopen the building

Can I speak to my counselor?

Yes, they are available during school hours. Use the QR code on the Counseling Schoology Page to make an appointment or email your counselor.

Do we still have IB Exams in May?

No, IB exams have been canceled for this year. However, student will still have the opportunity to earn the Diploma or Course Certificate based on their submitted work for IB in each class.

If I am sick do I still do work?

If you are so sick that you cannot participate in work your parent needs to contact the school, just like a regular school day. You must have a doctor’s note to be excused (this can be emailed to us, faxed, taken a picture of, etc.)

How can I help my student complete their work?

Check Schoology (if you don’t have access email and she will help you), help students make a schedule, help them find a good space to do work, check in with them, encourage them to ask their teachers, admin, or counselors for help

What happens if a classmate uses disrespectful communication to me online?

Please report this to your teacher, counselor, or administrator asap

Do we still have the ACT on 4/4?

No, it will be rescheduled. As of now, we do not have a plan for a new date but we will update you when we know more
