Message from NAMS - September 17, 2020

posted Sep 17, 2020, 12:51 PM by Jorge Goncalves

Good afternoon NAMS Families,

I hope that this message finds you and your family well. I just wanted to first take a moment to thank you for all of your support and patience as we navigate our first week of remote learning. It has been wonderful to witness teachers connecting with students again, albeit in a different environment. There have been times when Internet connections were lost and students and even staff needed to log back into a google meet here and there, but everyone remained calm and worked through these challenges. The IT department has been working tirelessly to address student and staff requests and they deserve our thanks. We will continue to reflect and make improvements daily to meet the needs of our staff and students.

Health & Safety Video

As previously promised, NAMS messages will focus on sharing information, protocols, and procedures for returning students to school safely. We thought that we would begin by making sure that students are aware of the health and safety practices that they will be individually responsible for. Thank you Ms. Pease, NAMS Nurse, for creating the video found here. Please be sure to review this video with your child at your earliest convenience.

Below you will find the list of messages and videos that will be shared with you in the next several days so you are aware of what is coming next:

  • Review of NAMS NAMS Parent/Guardian Guide Video

  • Student Arrival to School & Departure Video

  • Drop-Off & Pick-Up Video

  • Tour of NAMS Video

  • Online Meal Ordering System Review

  • Distributing School Supplies to OLA Students

  • Distributing Chromebooks to Students Who Need Them
