Updates From the Principal
May 22, 2020
Dear Oak Hill Families,
I hope you all enjoy a lovely Memorial Day Weekend. With the Monday holiday, the team learning plans will be emailed out on Monday evening. We will have a normal Tuesday schedule beginning on May 26.
Keeping up the focus and energy through the end of the year:
With the coming of nicer weather, please help our teachers by speaking to your children and encouraging them to keep up with their work and attending the live sessions. As a parent of two teenagers myself, we talked about trying to get as much work done in a short period of time with the incentive of getting outside sooner. I know it is tough and thanks for your help in advance!
Homeroom Social Connecting Block Continues on Mondays:
Please encourage your children to join their homeroom classmates for a social connecting block for 30 minutes on Mondays. With the Memorial Day holiday there will be no block but the time begins again on Monday, June 1. (We are developing a special end of year event on Monday, June 15th too!)
Report Card Update:
At the end of the term in June, we will post report cards, and no letter grades will be assigned. In alignment with the other middle schools, students will receive either a “P”, “Pass”, indicating that a student has submitted enough work to fairly assess progress given the current circumstances, or a “NG” , “No Grade”, indicating that “there was not enough work submitted during this term to fairly assess progress.”
If your child receives an “NG” for the term, it will in no way impact his or her ability to transition to the next grade. Each student and family has experienced the distance learning model in a different way based upon their circumstances, and an NG grade may be the result of a plan to modify a student’s work or to account for a family’s circumstance during this public health crisis. If you have any questions regarding your child’s progress, as always, reach out to their guidance counselor or teachers.
Student Feedback - Collecting on June 1:
During part of Monday homeroom block on June 1, we will be conducting a student survey to assess their experience with NPS’ distance learning. This information will help inform our planning for the future in case there is more distance learning in the fall.
Chromebook Loaners to Students:
The district will collect the Chromebooks that have been loaned to families once we return back to school. Please make provisions for keeping the Chromebooks safe over the summer time.
