East Campus Remote Learning Resources
To access remote learning resource plans for East Campus students, please click HERE (but please know your child's teacher has provided classroom specific learning directly with families. If you haven't connected with your teacher, please do so as soon as possible). The remote learning resources are specific to students' classes/homerooms. These resources will be updated routinely by our teachers.
Please be advised that some teachers may be using platforms to communicate that are outside of the CPS approved product list according to the Acceptable Use Policy (like Shutterfly). These products do not require student level information so the use is not a risk. If you have any questions about the platform being used, please direct the question to the teacher with Mrs. Kranz cc'd (email@example.com).

Ogden East Art Room Blog
Dear families of Ogden East Campus students: Please understand we expect all students to enter the building in a calm manner. If students arrive early and the doors are not yet open, we ask students to line up before entry. If large groups of students are traveling to school together, be it walking or carpooling, we ask they enter the plaza and school in an orderly fashion. Thank you to all of our families that reinforce this expectations!
