We are experiencing internet connectivity issues in Palos Heights. We have not identified the source of the community-wide issue. We are asking students and staff to log off and retry in 30 minutes. If you continue to experience technical difficulties, you can send an email once you have connectivity to let us know and we will not mark your student absent. Teachers will reach out via email with any adjustments once connectivity is restored.
