This is a reminder to check and make sure your child is completing their school work on Progress Book. If you have picked up a paper packet, you can return it to school and leave it in the crate on the table where you picked it up. Please make sure your child's name is on the packet so they get the credit for the work! Stay safe!
Please encourage your child to complete their schoolwork in a timely manner. You can still check Progress Book and email teachers with questions. If your Internet is unavailable or unreliable, you can contact the school and leave a message to get a paper packet. Please, have your child do either paper or online, do not try to mix them. As always, stay safe!
Normally, school would be accepting applications for the Summer Rural Meal Delivery Program at this time. However, given the crisis with COVID-19, the start of this program has been delayed. Please watch for future announcements about the status of this program.
Update on school work: First, the district indicated that the end of the third nine weeks was moved to Friday, March 13, 2020. All remaining work will be considered part of the fourth nine weeks, or last grading period. Work for the fourth nine weeks from North Adams High School will be available beginning Monday, March 23, 2020. If you have any data or Internet access, the lessons are much more relevant and interactive if your child can do them online. Your child should check their Google email and Google Classroom for assignments. I have also asked teachers to post assignments or directions for assignments in Progress Book so that parents can see them. If your child can see the assignment online, but doesn’t have access to a printer, have your child number a regular sheet of paper and answer any questions on the sheet of paper. Once your child is finished with the assignment, take a picture of each sheet of their answers with a smartphone or their Chromebook and share the picture with the teacher via the share function or through email. If you have access to a scanner, you can scan your child’s answers and email them to the teacher. If you have access to transportation and need Internet access, Church 180 across from the school and Winchester 3-C-U in Winchester both indicated that students can use their Internet from the parking lot. Please check with these churches as to best times and passwords. If you absolutely have no data or Internet access, paper copies of work will be available at Church 180 between the hours of 10 AM and 3 PM Monday through Friday until further notice. A big thank you to Church 180 for allowing us to place copies there. Take care of yourself and your family, and stay safe!

Thanks to all community members and school personnel who have helped to work this out!
