It is my hope that you have received the communication from the district office regarding digital learning days and events for the next week. At this time, North Metro Academy will participate in digital learning this week, March 16th-20th. On Thursday, March 19th, Gwinnett County Public Schools will announce its plans for March 23rd-27th, following a thorough review of the COVID-19 situation at that time.
Your children have had much practice using iReady and should be able to log on and get started on their own. Teachers will continue to create meaningful lessons and learning throughout the week while keeping in mind the restrictions some families may have. Teachers, administrators, and staff will be monitoring digital learning and will do our best to support our families. Should you have difficulty, please email your child’s teacher first.
At this time, all activities have been postponed and will be rescheduled at a later time. I will continue to keep you updated with school events and/or cancellations as new information becomes available. GCPS School Nutrition staff and Transportation staff will coordinate to provide meals for students. GCPS will provide a lunch for anyone 18 or younger at 68 school sites in the district. Peachtree Elementary, Pinckneyville Middle, Norcross HS, and Paul Duke HS are some of these school sites. These lunches will be provided at no cost to students through the federal School Nutrition Program (during March 16th-20th). These sites will be open from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. for meal pick-up.
Please do not hesitate to contact the school if you need assistance. Thank you for your patience during this time as we strive to keep all of our families safe and healthy.
