In-Person Learning: We will follow the guidelines of the State/City regarding cohort numbers, which can change. Currently we are working from a plan of 10-15 students. Teachers, classroom assistants and other faculty will rotate among cohorts based on health and safety recommendations. Our Montessori-trained teachers will continue to lead the teaching and learning for their students, based on cohort schedules. The rotation for this schedule will be defined over the coming weeks. Co-curricular and arts classes will be offered by Zoom to a group of students in the classroom, or live and in person by an adult wearing PPE. All students will be given an NNM digital device to use in the classroom as a learning tool and to ease the transition when teaching and learning toggles between in-person and remote learning.
Hybrid Learning: This model assumes students are learning both in school and remotely for extended periods of time. Hybrid learning will occur in the event that local authorities close schools, or due to a single cohort group, level or school being exposed to the virus.
Remote Learning: If local authorities close schools for the academic year, teachers would fully transition the routines, schedules and collaborative activities planned for in person learning to remote learning. Children, with documented immunocompromised systems, may avail of remote learning with teacher support if they cannot attend in-person schooling. Tech training will be provided for teachers, parents and students to ensure success.
