Dear North Smithfield Families,
I wanted to update everyone on our very fluid reopening plans. Since my last letter to you, there have been several updates at the State level:
Distance Learning: Pre-Existing Medical, Quarantine, and Option
NSPS will offer a full Distance Learning option for students with pre-existing medical conditions and try to accommodate families who request the Distance Learning option. For this option, NSPS will require a Quarterly commitment to Distance Learning. Distance Learning will be provided to students who must temporarily quarantine.
Reopening Plan Revisions as 8/4/2020
Splitting between in-person, full or partial models, accommodating distance learning for medical needs, or as an option, is going to seriously stretch our teachers and staff and resources, but we will do our best to accommodate the community’s needs and support our students as best as we can.
Plan #1: Full In-Person
Plan #2: Partial In-Person
Plan #3: Limited In-Person
As always, thank you all for your patience, understanding, and input as we try and pin down this moving target.
Michael St. Jean,
