Dear NLMUSD Community,
Despite the COVID-19 pandemic and the immense and unexpected pressures that our school community experienced over the last couple of months, we moved forward with our unwavering commitment to our students and families through Distance Learning. On behalf of the Board of Education, I want to express my sincere gratitude to each and every one of you for your dedication, hard work, and extraordinary partnership during these unprecedented and exceptionally challenging times.
The Norwalk-La Mirada Unified School District has formed a Return-to-School Task Force comprised of various stakeholders throughout the District to determine how learning will be conducted during the 2020-2021 school year. Parents, certificated and classified staff have volunteered to serve on this important Task Force. Additionally, subcommittees have been created in the following areas:
- Budgeting and Financial Operations
- Curriculum and Instruction (TK-5, 6-8, and 9-12)
- Family and Community Engagement
- Health and Safety
- Human Resources
- Maintenance and Facilities
- Nutrition Services
- Social and Emotional Support Systems
- Student Extra-Curricular Activities and Athletics
Utilizing the framework provided by the Los Angeles County Office of Education (LACOE), each subcommittee will be analyzing the relevant components of three different possible learning models: Distance Learning (“Learning from home”), attending school in person, and a hybrid model of Distance Learning and attending school in person. The ultimate goal of the Task Force is to develop a Return-to-School blueprint that meets the needs of our District to ensure the safety of students and staff, and to maintain the highest quality educational experience for all students. The work of this Task Force is fluid as guidance from the California Department of Education, Los Angeles County Office of Education, and Department of Public Health continues to be shared with school districts. Also, I want to thank our parents who have already responded to our Return-to-School Parent Survey.
As the 2019-20 school year comes to an end, I want to thank you once again and wish you and your families a restful summer. Stay healthy and be well.
Hasmik Danielian, Ed.D.
