As you know, the health and safety of our staff and students is the first priority of our district. Evaluating the latest information that we have received this morning, Saturday, March 14, 2020, regarding Coronavirus, and in speaking with local health officials, our School Board and Administration team, effective immediately, North Adams Community Schools will be closed, in an abundance of precaution to reduce or prevent the spread of illness in our community.
Beginning Monday, March 16 through Sunday, April 12, North Adams Community Schools will be closed.
At this time, we wish to share our plans for this week, March 16-March 20, (we will be sharing what the weeks to follow look like soon):
Monday, March 16th: Waiver Day (no eLearning)
Tuesday, March 17th: eLearning
Wednesday, March 18th: eLearning
Thursday, March 19th: eLearning
Friday, March 20th: Waiver Day (no eLearning)
We are dedicated to transparency and planning. We trust you have many questions about the next few days. Our staff is working diligently on preparing a list of answers to many frequently asked questions and, as our past few days have shown, we will be informing you of important updates and information as it is available. Additional information will be shared via our website, social media and SchoolMessenger notifications later this weekend; please be watching for updates.
We appreciate your patience and understanding as we work together for the safety of our school community. While we understand that some of changes to our school schedule are uncomfortable and uncertain times, in the end, what we believe is most important is the assurance that we are being proactive and hopefully doing what we can to provide a safer and healthier community for all of our residents.
Should you have any questions or concerns, please contact our Administration Office at 260-724-7146. Our administration office will be operating during regular working hours, Monday through Friday 8:00 AM - 4:00 PM.
