#NHCSReadySetReturn: Teaching and Learning

Due to high interest in the NHCS Virtual Academy, the Virtual Academy application will remain open for new applicants and the application period will not close on August 28, 2020. All students applying to the Virtual Academy after August 14, 2020 will be added to the waitlist. Students on the waitlist will be accepted into the program if seats are available.
Under Plan B, NHCS will be operating under an AA/BB model instead of a three-week rotation schedule for students. Beginning on Monday, October 12 students in groups A and B will rotate in-person and remote attendance, with students in Group A attending on Monday and Tuesday and students in Group B attending on Thursday and Friday.
Families not wanting their student to participate in face-to-face instruction for health and safety reasons may choose to participate in their assigned week of in-person instruction remotely.  Students will be allowed to continue in remote learning during this time and not counted as absent if the student actively participates in required learning activities and assignments during this time.  It is important to note that while the district will strive for consistency in teacher assignment, teacher assignments may vary during this week of instruction.  
Any parent wishing for their child to remain in remote learning for their scheduled week of in-person learning should indicate this to their child's teacher(s).
