Dear North Smithfield Families and Staff,
We anticipate the Governor will make an announcement this week regarding schools opening or remaining closed, and if so, for how long. In the meantime, we are making plans, alternate plans, and backup to alternate plans on how we can handle honors, awards, and graduation. We want to make our students proud.
North Smithfield High School Viewbook:
It was my hope to have our NSHS Viewbook printed and distributed throughout the community as a celebration of North Smithfield High School, its students, faculty, and programs. For those who miss NSHS, or will be attending NSHS in the fall, or even if you live outside of North Smithfield and would like to attend NSHS through one of our Career and Technical Programs, below is a link to the North Smithfield High School Viewbook. In this booklet, you will see students, staff, a school, and a community dedicated to excellence.
Parent Distance Learning Survey
I want to thank the parents who responded to our Parent Distance Learning Survey. As a reflection of the innovative work our teachers are doing with your children, the majority of you responded very positively to the survey questions. The feedback you provided on striking a work/home balance, organizing assignments, and providing clear expectations has been invaluable. Your responses to the questions regarding instructional, social, and technical supports will allow us to work even more closely with your children to help them be successful.
We especially appreciated the many thoughtful and insightful comments you included. Each principal has taken the comments specific to his or her school and is reviewing them with their leadership teams and faculty.
Since this survey was anonymous, we cannot follow-up with the few individuals to address your specific issues or concerns. We can however encourage you to reach out to your teacher, case manager, school counselor, assistant principal or principal as we are all here to help.
We are all working together in the current situation to accommodate all students' needs. Thank you for your assistance.
Michael St. Jean,
