As we finish Spring Break and move into the final weeks of the school year, I cannot thank our students, teachers, staff, parents, and community enough. I appreciate the hard work by everyone and hope that our middle level students and families continue to stay safe and healthy.
Middle level education is predicated on meeting the needs of the whole child. Being able to further a student's academic ability while supporting his or her physical, social, and emotional needs is challenging. Being able to do this remotely adds another layer of complexity. Therefore, please take a moment to review the following document entitled, NRCSD Remote Learning and Grading Policy April 2020.
As Mr. Gurka stated in yesterday's email, we are anticipating Governor DeWine making an announcement in the coming days regarding the future of the school year.
While we do not know what he will tell us, if he does close schools for the remainder of the year, we have started to plan for a process to have students/parents come into the buildings to clean out lockers. We need to carefully plan for this to make sure that we have safe social distancing practices and limit the number of individuals in our school at any given time. Once we have this plan in place we will communicate it out to everyone.
If you need support with technology, please send an
or by calling 440-237-8800 and leaving a voicemail. If you need internet access, you can use the middle school parking lot (enter drive #1 and turn immediately right, parallel with Ridge Road). Park in one of the spaces facing the building for best reception. You would choose the guest WiFi option and the password is bears123.
We will continue to offer bagged meals for families affected by the closure of schools on Monday and Thursday of each week
Pick-up times will remain from 10:00 AM to 11:15 AM on these days. Meals can be picked-up at North Royalton High School by entering driveway #4 and pulling up to the side of the building on the left. Stop at the ramp with the yellow railing for meal pick-up (Door #26). There will be a sign to direct you to the location. Once you provide your child's name and school to the food service worker, you will receive the meals.
Parents who are interested in receiving meals should complete this
or call 440-582-9041 for each child by 5:00 PM the day before the meal is requested.
As we move forward with the closure, please do not hesitate to
contact your child's teacher, school counselor, grade level principal, or me with any questions.
