The Northshore School District will begin the 2020-21 school year with 100% distance learning through Northshore Learns 3.0, using our staged approach to reopening. As the numbers of positive COVID-19 cases and deaths continue to rise across our state and in our region, it has become clear at this time that our more robust distance learning model will be the safest way to form the foundation for student learning this fall.
The nation's top infectious disease expert, Dr. Anthony Fauci, stated that our country's return to "normal" is best considered as a rolling re-entry, "There's not going to be like, a light switch that you turn on and off." As the public health conditions continue to evolve over the next several months, the Northshore dial will be a regular part of our guidance as we may have to move back and forth from stage to stage throughout the year. This information will be updated should new data and guidelines become available prior to the start of school.
