2018-2019 E-Learning & Make Up Days

This entry was posted in Uncategorized on by .

This is a follow up to our 2018-2019 school calendar and to clarify where we are with school cancellations and the end of our current school year.  Tuesday, February 12th, was the last of the five E-Learning days approved for use by the NPUSC school board for this school year.  Any further school cancellations will need to be added to the end of the school year as a make up day.

Also, the NPUSC school board has determined that E-Learning days will be used for no more than three consecutive instructional days.  You may recall NPUSC used E-Learning days on January 25th, 28th, and 29th.  We also had to cancel school January 30th and 31st due to inclement weather, but did not use E-Learning Days on these two dates.  As a result, the January 30th and 31st cancellations will be made up on May 23rd and 24th.

Finally, any school cancellation days after today, February 12th, will need to be made up after Memorial Day beginning on May 28th.

I hope this helps clarify where we are with E-Learning and school cancellation days for the 2018-2019 school year.  Please feel free to contact our administration office with any questions.
