We hope all of our NBJH families are hanging in there during this adaptive pause. Although our country continues to face some adversity in these early days of 2021, we are certainly hopeful that the new year brings all of us health, happiness and a strong sense of community.
As we head into this final week of the first semester, teachers and students will be wrapping up units of study and finalizing first semester report cards. Our plan is to email report cards to families by the end of next week.
On the subject of emailing reports to families, we discovered some tech glitches with some of the student schedules that were emailed home yesterday afternoon. If your child is missing a class on his/her schedule, please contact Mrs. Gail in the main office so we can email you a corrected schedule. (Her mail is: firstname.lastname@example.org.) Our tech team is investigating the problem so we have a better understanding of how we can avoid any future issues. Thank you for your patience!
Have a great weekend...
Updated in-person health and safety guidelines
If your children are enrolled for in-person learning second semester, you should have received Dr. Hewitt's letter yesterday that included links to our updated health and safety guidelines. The guidelines have been updated with the latest health protocols and modifications we have made to accommodate the colder weather. Whether your family is new to in-person learning this semester or returning, please take a few minutes to review the junior high guidelines.
Friday, January 15th update
Next Friday is a half day of attendance for students. Our teachers will be sharing with students information about what their morning will look like since students will not be attending a traditional schedule. Students will be provided access to a Google site with various asynchronous learning activities for the morning. Students will begin their day synchronously (on Zoom) with their 1st period classes where attendance will be taken and instructions will be provided.
In the afternoon, we will be offering optional in-person orientations for students transitioning from RLA to in-person learning. Check your inboxes for an email from Mrs. Lake to sign up for a 30-minute orientation spot.
