From February 11-15, all District 181 schools will be participating in “D181 Unplugged,” a week-long initiative aimed at reducing screen time at school and at home. We ask children to pledge to spend these five days with minimized or no screen time at school and at home, and we ask parents to lead by example and do the same!
We hope that as our students “unplug” from their devices that they feel a deeper connection to the world around them and are proud of their achievement. Screen-free fun ideas and a calendar of events for you and your family to enjoy will be distributed in classrooms, along with a student pledge to minimize screen time. We hope this week brings increased awareness to screen usage and creates fun memories for families.
