Community Discussions Re: Fall Return to School - July 20, 2020

July 20, 2020

Dear NPS Families,

This Thursday and Friday, we will provide you with updates on our planning process for school this fall. As we will share in these sessions, the health and safety of our staff and students is the primary driver behind all of our planning.

The sessions will include a description of our planning process, preliminary results from the family survey, and the timeline for decision-making. Please see below for the dates, times and login information for these community sessions:

High School (9-12) - Thursday, July 23 at 9:00 a.m. (RSVP here)  Login here: https://youtu.be/nByLG6xgbjM

Middle School (6-8) - Thursday, July 23 at 12 p.m. (RSVP here)  Login here: https://youtu.be/anMNFB2MBKk

Elementary (PreK-5) - Friday, July 24 at 9:00 a.m. (RSVP here)  Login here: https://youtu.be/L-FQ6IUraHo

We have had significantly large numbers of families indicate interest in attending these sessions. The session will be live-streamed from Zoom to the YouTube platform. Simply click the link above and you will be connected to the session. Please note that these sessions will be recorded and posted to our website if you are unable to attend live. The video recordings will contain closed captions.

Given the large number of participants, we ask that you submit questions in advance of the session. If questions arise during the session, you may use the same email address. Questions not answered during the session will be logged and included in the frequently asked questions document we are developing for our website. Please submit questions to:

community@newton.k12.ma.us

If you are submitting a question prior to the session, please indicate the level (Elementary, Middle, High) in the subject line.

We look forward to sharing our planning process with you this week. 

Sincerely,

David Fleishman

Superintendent of Schools
