NNPS Students Return to the Classroom February 22

Parents invited to attend virtual Town Hall meeting 
The Superintendent of Newport News Public Schools, Dr. George Parker, has announced an updated timeline for the return to in-person instruction. The timeline identifies target dates for bringing students back to school in two phases, beginning with student populations who are most in need of in-person instruction and support returning starting Monday, February 22. Parents can register to participate in NNPS’ Return to Learn Virtual Town Hall from 6 to 7 p.m. on Wednesday, February 10 to learn more about the return to in-person learning.  
In the first phase, self-contained special education students, newcomer English Language Learners and students in preschool through third grade will return to in-person instruction on Monday, February 22. First phase students will receive instruction four days a week. The second phase includes students in grades 4-12 who will return on Monday, March 8. 
Families who selected virtual instruction for their child will continue with virtual instruction. In-person instruction for other student groups will resume following the hybrid learning model with fourth and fifth-grade students attending school four days a week and middle and high school students attending school on their assigned two days each week. The days that students are not in school, they will continue their learning by logging into Canvas on their Chromebook or computer for guided and independent assignments. In most cases students will work independently; however, some students may receive personalized instruction in small groups.
