Dear Norwin Families and Community Members,
I am pleased to report that our first day of online instruction went very smoothly for students and teachers, with an overwhelming majority of students logging in and receiving lessons. From all accounts, teachers and principals reported a great deal of engagement and interaction with the lessons delivered through Google Classroom. This is good news and is a credit to families and teachers working so well together to make the best of this challenging situation.
Together We Can!
Additionally, today we learned that
Governor Tom Wolf has announced
that all Pennsylvania schools will remain closed until further notice. This announcement came as COVID-19 cases continue to grow and the state continues to seek relief to save lives and stop the spread of COVID-19. Additional details will be shared through Norwin eBlasts to families in the coming days about
how this will impact the district’s schedule
As we become acclimated to an online learning environment, there will be many new challenges for our families and teachers.
Today, I share with you a resource from our Guidance Department Head, Mr. Doug Colcombe. He has written a short article to help families navigate the challenges of sharing devices in the household. I hope that your family finds it helpful.
Stay safe, healthy, and
Dr. Jeff Taylor
