Mundelein E-Learning Hub
Mundelein Park District E-Learning Hub is committed to providing a safe in-person program for children during their school’s remote learning period. The program allows you to enroll your child in a quality program, and eliminate the stress of juggling your child’s schoolwork and job workload. You will have the assurance of knowing that your child is receiving excellent, supervised care.
In this program, children will be in a small group setting with supportive help from experienced staff, allowing him/her to excel during required online learning. Your child’s regular school teachers will provide all remote learning. Our number one goal is to keep your child safe while attending the program. We will follow all COVID precautions, as recommended by the IDPH and the CDC, including mask-wearing and social distancing.
Mundelein E-Learning Hub is open to students k-8 in Mundelein School Districts 75, 76 and 79. Children will be put into small groups of no more than 15 and organized by school and grade level. Sites will be limited to a maximum of 50 students. Students will receive supportive help from experienced staff, allowing him/her to excel during required online learning. Students’ regular teachers will provide all remote learning, and children will follow their school’s bell schedule.
While safety is a priority, the Park District also realizes the importance of social and emotional health. That is why The Park District will also offer guided physical and enrichment activities along with time for free play.
Tuition: Tuition for residents is $150 per week and for nonresidents $210 per week. The extended stay option is an additional $50 per week for residents and $60 for nonresidents. Scholarships may be available from the Mundelein Parks Foundation for those families who qualify.
Q. Will there be technical support for my child in case they have computer issues?

A. Yes, we are able to accommodate students from other Mundelein schools at Park District facilities.

Exact locations for each grade will be communicated prior to the start of the school year.
