Update NPS Recommends HS Fall to be Distance Learning

Dear Newton South Families,

On August 25, 2020, the NPS recommended a change for High School model from hybrid to distance learning model, indefinitely. Click to view Return to Learn SC Presentation Update – 8.25.20.  The High School Distance Learning model starts on page 18.   The majority of students (except those with high needs) will be in the Distance Learning model.  There is no longer a DLA for High Schools.

The School Committee will be voting today at their meeting on August 26 at 7PM on the updated proposal by NPS.   To view the meeting, click here.  For the latest updates on NPS Return to Learn, click here.

We know how difficult and complex the return-to-learn decision has been for all of us. The PTSO will continue to work with South Administration and staff to find ways to communicate information in a timely manner, help support and engage our community for input and ideas – and to stay connected even when we are apart.  Together, we can find ways to enrich our students’ experience and to support our teachers and staff at South during this unprecedented school year.  Please click here to subscribe to the PTSO Newsletter.

NPS, South Administration, and Athletic Department are working and assessing Fall Sports.  More news to come per recent email from Principal Aronson.

Stay well and healthy and enjoy these summer days!  Look for more news in the coming weeks as we get ready for the start of school on September 16, 2020.
