Letter regarding January Preparations for Learning


Hello Goldback students and families, 

As you are well aware, the Omicron Variant is wreaking havoc across the state. Based on a variety of unique circumstances, some school districts have decided to revert to remote learning during the first few weeks of January. Other school districts, including NECSD, are being proactive just in case a decision needs to be made while we are on break.

In order to be sure the education of our students is not interrupted, we have asked our educators to make sure students bring their Chromebooks home along with any materials and resources that students may need to participate in and complete assignments in the event that the district needs to transition to virtual learning.

We understand the impact late notifications have on our families and we hope to welcome all students back for in-person learning on Monday, January 3rd. However, we recognize how quickly circumstances are changing with this new variant, so we are trying to be prepared. The district will notify you as soon as possible in the event a transition to virtual learning becomes necessary. 

Please let me reiterate, we do not foresee a need to revert to virtual learning at this time. We are just being proactive! 

Please stay healthy and safe,

 

Ed Forgit
Acting Superintendent of School

Hola, estudiantes y familias de Goldback,

Como bien sabe, la variante Omicron está causando estragos en todo el estado. Basado en una variedad de circunstancias únicas, algunos distritos escolares han decidido volver al aprendizaje remoto durante las primeras semanas de enero. Otros distritos escolares, incluido NECSD, están siendo proactivos en caso de que sea necesario tomar una decisión mientras estamos de vacaciones.

Para asegurarnos de que la educación de nuestros estudiantes no se interrumpa, les hemos pedido a nuestros educadores que se aseguren de que los estudiantes traigan sus Chromebooks a casa junto con los materiales y recursos en los que los estudiantes puedan necesitar para participar y completar las tareas en caso de que el distrito lo necesite. para la transición al aprendizaje virtual.

Entendemos el impacto que tienen las notificaciones tardías en nuestras familias y esperamos darles la bienvenida a todos los estudiantes para el aprendizaje en persona el lunes 3 de enero. Sin embargo, reconocemos lo rápido que cambian las circunstancias con esta nueva variante, por lo que estamos tratando de estar preparados. El distrito le notificará lo antes posible en caso de que sea necesaria una transición al aprendizaje virtual.

Permítanme reiterar que no prevemos la necesidad de volver al aprendizaje virtual en este momento. ¡Solo estamos siendo proactivos!

Por favor, manténgase sano y seguro.
