It has been our intention to return to some form of in-person learning as soon as it was determined by our health departments that it is both safer and feasible to do so. On September 21, during our virtual town hall with county health department officials, we reviewed the current coronavirus data for our community. To this end, our county health agency partners have made the recommendation that it is now appropriate for us to return to a hybrid learning model. Click here to watch the virtual town hall discussion about the data guiding our decisions and current levels in our community. Beginning Monday, October 5, we will be implementing a hybrid in-person learning schedule for all students who are not currently enrolled in the LaunchED program. LaunchED student’s schedules will not be impacted by this change.
Cómo usted sabe, nuestra intención ha sido volver a alguna forma de aprendizaje en persona tan pronto cómo nuestros departamentos de salud determinen que es más seguro y factible hacerlo. Anoche, durante nuestra junta virtual con los funcionarios del departamento de salud del condado, revisamos los datos actuales del coronavirus para nuestra comunidad. Con esto, nuestros asociados de las agencias de salud pública del condado han recomendado que ahora es apropiado que regresemos a un modelo de aprendizaje híbrido. Haga clic aquí para ver la discusión de la junta virtual sobre los datos que guían nuestras decisiones y los niveles actuales en nuestra comunidad. Comenzando el lunes 5 de octubre, estaremos implementando un programa de aprendizaje híbrido en persona para todos los estudiantes que no estén inscritos actualmente en el programa LaunchED. Los horarios de estudiantes LaunchED no serán impactados por este cambio.
Our second year of STEM integration at Northridge Elementary began in much the same way as our first. We had an enormous amount of technology flow into our building, and most of my month was spent getting Chromebooks and iPad Minis configured and distributed to classrooms. Teachers were eager to receive this new technology, and wasted no time getting it into the hands of their students to enhance their learning. In each classroom, students could be seen using iPads and Chromebooks to read, research, create, and explore. Teachers also picked up right where they left off last year in their continued implementation of STEM in their classrooms. Parents worked on design challenges with their children on Back to School Night--building towers, backpacks, and even writing centers! Our partnership with CU Engineering began once again in September, and students were able to use the newly-designed STEM Lab to perform various design challenges to further expand their collaborative problem-solving skills. As you can probably tell from the high levels of science, technology, engineering, and math integration that students and teachers are undertaking, it's full STEM ahead at Northridge!
