Update from Bigelow – 03.13.20

Dear Bigelow Families,

You should have received a message from David Fleishman with updates about our school closure.  Thank you all for your patience and flexibility over the past 48 hours as we deal with this unique health challenge.

The NPS Office of Teaching and Learning is assembling a collection of materials to provide enrichment and connectedness opportunities for your children during this closure.  The materials will provide educational opportunities and activities at grade level for your children while school is closed. They are not intended to replace classroom instruction, or to substitute for instruction in any way. Rather, they are supplemental–grade-level activities that are interesting and fun and encourage students to explore new topics on their own.

As David mentioned, all school activities have been postponed.  We’ll revise our schedule for trimester 2 report cards and other key events once we resume normal school functioning.  In regards to the grade 8 New York City field trip in June, no decision has been made about it yet. We are working with our travel company, EF, to explore options for the trip, and will re-assess the situation later in March. Please refrain from contacting EF’s travel support team directly until we determine our plan for going forward.

Please take care.  We will be in touch with further information.  Stay well.

Todd M. Harrison
