Weather Update for Tuesday, 2.2.2021
Posted on 02/01/2021

Dear NSS Community,

The storm today has continued to drop snow on our area this evening, and the driving for tomorrow is predicted to be hazardous. Consequently, tomorrow, Tuesday, February 2nd, will be an asynchronous distance learning day. This means that all students at all schools will be distance learning but will not be held to a formal schedule. Instead, teachers will share assignments before the regular start of the school day and will hold office hours to support students who have questions or need help. Teachers will also meet with students in small groups throughout the day.

Snow Day Guidelines:

  • Emergency closure/snow days will be similar in structure to the scheduled professional development days throughout the year.
  • All grades and classes and related services will be on an asynchronous schedule during these days to account for possible loss of power, disruptions to childcare, and/or other unforeseen circumstances.
  • All teachers will communicate assignments for the day to students and/or families before the regularly scheduled start of the school day.
  • Teachers will be available for office hours between 10:00 and 12:00 to consult with students and answer questions about assignments. 

Given the delay in the start of the school in September and the unified state school calendar this year, the traditional “day off” snow cancellation is not currently an option for us. However, my hope is that an asynchronous structure will allow us to maintain learning while also providing flexibility for families.

At this time, we are planning for in-person learning again on Wednesday.

Thanks for your support.
