Fall Planning Update for Week of August 10, 2020

August 7, 2020

Dear NPS Families,

Next week, we will share our fall Return to Learn plan with the community. We will begin with a presentation of the plan at the School Committee meeting on Monday, August 10th at 7:00 p.m. There will be an additional School Committee meeting on Wednesday. School Committee members will then hold virtual office hours on Thursday and Friday to answer some of your questions.  

The plan we will present reflects our current thinking on the possible models with which we will return to learning in the fall. It will give you information on both the health and safety measures we have put in place in our school buildings, as well as draft academic schedules for both hybrid and distance learning.

Please mark your calendars for the following meetings next week to learn more about the plan.
