Memo from NLESD copied and pasted below:

This memo is intended to provide direction for families of Junior and Senior High School students relative to the final days of instruction in June of 2021.

Schools will provide meaningful, engaging learning opportunities for all students up to and including the days prior to report card pick-up in the final week of school. Learning and instruction will not end when we normally would have at the beginning of an exam period. We expect all students to attend their classes.

It is important for students to know that learning will continue, and they will have every opportunity to improve their grades up to the end of instruction. Students will be able to demonstrate improved competency and this will be reflected on the final report distributed on the last day for students. How this looks in each school may be different as school teams consider opportunities to build rich learning activities for their students.

For the vast majority of schools, Thursday, June 24, is the scheduled pick-up day for report cards. Scenario 2 schools will have to use Wednesday, June 23, as well. Schools will communicate arrival and dismissal procedures in the near future.

I talked with the students about the new condensed schedule. This has been a very hard school year already, and the new schedule makes it harder yet. We have eight more weeks of school to get through and I promised the students that I would do my best to make that time as gentle to everyone as I could make it. My plan is to go outside every science period, even if only for a walk around the school, barring seriously bad weather or the occasional period where an activity might be just too long to allow for the time. They get to pick whether we go at the beginning or the end of the period.

The work plan for today was for students to complete p.36-37 in their science booklet, which does not require the smartboard or the classroom. So we elected to go out to the outside classroom for students to work on this. Students braved an unexpected temperature drop and drizzle and worked diligently together. They made me really proud to be their teacher.
