Message from Principal Cullinane
Good afternoon Nashoba students and families -
We have some important information in this newsletter relating to our current remote learning plan as well as our hybrid plan which is scheduled to go into effect on March 1, 2021.
More information about our changes to our current remote plan are below. Following that information is a survey we are asking all of our families to fill out, which will continue to inform our hybrid learning model planning.
Thank you for your cooperation.
Current Remote Learning Plan Changes
We will be utilizing a system which dictates that each week is either a Week 1 or Week 2, on an alternating basis.
On a Week 1, the following classes will become synchronous (as opposed to asynchronous) on the following days:
Monday - Social Studies
Tuesday - English
Thursday - Arts
Friday - World Language
On a Week 2, the following classes will become synchronous (as opposed to asynchronous) on the following days:
Monday - Science
Tuesday - Wellness
Thursday - Technology/Business
Friday - Math
For an updated schedule which reflects this change, please click here or see the image below.
Upcoming Hybrid Learning Model
Please fill out the survey and indicate your preference. There is also a space for you to ask any relevant questions that you may have in order to make a binding choice next week.
The survey can be found here.

Guidance Office : Scholarship Info
The Guidance Office is honored to offer multiple scholarship opportunities via Naviance:
- Outside scholarships sent to us by outside agencies
- Private scholarships offered by local donors (recognized at Senior Scholarship Night each year)
- Nashoba Regional Dollars for Scholars scholarships (recognized at Senior Scholarship Night each year - Student directions for setting up a Chapternet account and scholarship descriptions are in the scholarships list in Naviance - you will be matched with scholarships based on the information you submit)
Each of these groups offer different directions, qualifications, and deadlines. While we will support your applications with various documents such as transcripts and mailing packages, it is YOUR responsibility to follow the various requirements and meet the deadlines - don't wait until the last minute.
Please scroll through the available scholarships to apply for and remember that new scholarships continue to be added as we receive them, so continue to monitor Naviance.
If, after having read this email and all supplied directions carefully you still have questions, please reach out to the Guidance Office.
***The January 20th early college planning presentation will not be held at this time. More information will be available at a later date.
