Temporary Shift to Remote Learning for six NSD schools

Hello Team Northshore,

I am writing to you this evening to share that I have made the decision to pause in-person learning and temporarily shift to remote learning at six of our schools.  I have just sent the notices to each of the six schools and communications will be sending out notices to the affected families at 9:15 pm this evening. This is due to substantial staffing shortages that are the result of COVID-related quarantines, general illnesses, and other absences coupled with our inability to continue filling substitute positions. The schools will be in-person tomorrow for students to gather devices and any other materials necessary for the temporary pause. 

The six schools are:

Bothell HS
Inglemoor HS
North Creek HS
Woodinville HS
Northshore MS
Skyview MS

The schedule for the temporary shift is as follows:

Thursday 1/13 

Students will engage in synchronous/asynchronous remote learning on the normal schedule while staff plan for the switch to synchronous remote

Friday 1/14 

Students will engage in synchronous/asynchronous remote learning on the normal schedule while staff plan for the switch to synchronous remote

Monday 1/17

Tuesday 1/18 

Students will engage in synchronous remote learning on the normal bell schedule 

Wednesday 1/19

Thursday 1/20

Friday 1/21

Monday 1/24 

Students return to campus for in-person learning on the normal bell schedule 

I continue to be so grateful for each of you and your herculean efforts during this epic time in our journey.  I am confident that even with the uncertain road ahead of us, we have proven time and again that we are up to meeting any new challenge; together all things are possible.  Thank you for your continued understanding as we navigate these new challenges presented by the COVID-19 Omicron variant. 

 All the best and take good care,

Michelle Reid, Ed.D.
