online learning opportunities this week as we have been doing.

still plan on enjoying Spring Break April 6 through April 13. Teachers
will have professional development on April 14, and online learning will
continue on April 15.

- More important than making
sure our kids don't miss any curriculum is simply making sure our kids are
OK. Families, you should feel no pressure or stress that you have to get
all of the content covered. We will get to the content in good time.

unafraid. We will do our best to see that parents who may be facing
illness or job loss or wage cuts don't feel overwhelmed by any
expectations we are imposing on them.
unprecedented times, and we will get through them together through flexibility
and common sense. Please understand this closure is not only to keep students
and staff safe, but also to prevent the spread of COVID-19 as seen in other
countries around the world.
thanks for your continued support of the Nordonia Schools, and Go Knights!
