Local schools to adopt “distance learning” due to coronavirus

I received this email:

Good Evening NJUHSD Family,

I am writing to inform you that, beginning Monday, March 16th, all NJUHSD schools will be closed due to the Coronavirus / COVID-19 pandemic.  The closure will be effective Monday, March 16th, through the end of our scheduled Spring Break, April 13th, pending further notification.

On Monday and Tuesday of next week, staff will be working to develop distance learning materials to deliver curriculum to students during this school closure period.  Instructions and materials for student “distance learning” will be made available to students and families no later than Wednesday, March 18th.  Instructions regarding student access to materials will be provided no later than 3:00 pm on Tuesday March 17th.

Please understand that these are clearly unprecedented times.  School closures are a response to our duty to slow the spread of COVID-19, and to reduce the impact of the virus on our community members and health care system.

Please see this attachment from the Nevada County Superintendent of Schools for further details – NCSOS Letter – COVID-19 & Distance Learning 

Thank you for your patience,

Dan Frisella

Assistant Superintendent

Nevada Joint Union High School District
