Nixon Elementary School

Notables From Nixon

Dear Families,

We look ahead to our new season of Spring and also the shift of greater opportunity for in-person learning starting on 4/5/21. Superintendent Crozier provided an update for families of important dates and an opportunity to share learning designation for the remainder of our school year:

- Complete the family designation form by March 10th.

- Submit any questions you may have about the full reopening process by using this link.


Important dates to mark your calendars:


  • March 12 Hybrid “B” students attend a full day of school.
  • March 24, 31 Elementary asynchronous instruction/services.
  • April 1 Full-day professional development. No school for students.
  • April 5 Full In-person learning begins for elementary students
  • April 7, 14 Middle school students will receive asynchronous instruction
  • April 26 Full In-person learning begins for middle school students


We are pleased to have children back at school in an in-person fashion while also supporting children who remain remote. Students enrolled in the full-remote program will be able to maintain their status through the conclusion of the 2020-2021 school year. The DESE Commissioner has indicated, however, that remote learning will not be offered at the outset of the 2021-2022 school year. We are hoping that each family will seriously consider whether it is feasible to return their student(s) to in-person learning this spring in order to ease the students’ transition, strengthen connections to school and peers, and allow educators to more thoroughly assess and plan for student learning.


Please be aware that after March 10th, changes to a child's learning model after the deadline will be difficult to honor, and are dependent upon space availability.


Thank you for your communication and partnership throughout this journey. Please reach out with any questions or comments.


Sincerely,

Susan M. Woods
