The continued safety, well-being, and success of our students, teachers, staff, and community has always been our top priority as we navigate the complex and evolving coronavirus crisis. To that end, our comprehensive task force has outlined a school reopening plan that includes a return to full-time in-person instruction for students in grades PK-5, 6, and 9, and an alternating schedule with a combination of in-person and synchronous real-time online learning for students in grades 7-8 and 10-12.
La seguridad continúa, el bienestar, y el éxito de nuestros estudiantes, maestros, empleados, y la comunidad siempre ha sido nuestra prioridad más importante a manera que enfrentamos la compleja y evolucionante crisis del coronavirus. Con eso en mente, nuestro integro y dedicado grupo de trabajo ha preparado un plan de reapertura de las escuelas que incluye un regreso a la enseñanza en persona de tiempo completo para los estudiantes que están en los grados del PK al 5, en el 6, y en el 9, y un horario alternativo con una combinación de aprendizaje en persona y un aprendizaje sincronizado en vivo en tiempo real en línea a través del Internet para estudiantes en los grados 7 al 8 y del 10 al 12.

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!
