In order to comply with President Trump’s “15-Days to Slow the Spread” plan, Nampa School District schools will begin online instruction on March 31, 2020. This means there is no expectation for instruction during spring break and students will not return to classrooms for the week of March 30. Virtual student instruction will resume on March 31 – watch for further instructions from your child’s school.
District and school offices will be open during normal office hours starting March 30 to answer questions and assist students and families.
Please be aware that all district offices and schools will be closed beginning Friday, March 20, for spring break. Following the break, teachers will use Monday, March 30, as a final preparation day before launching online/distance instruction on Tuesday, March 31. Online instruction will continue for at least that week, at which point we will evaluate and make a decision on whether or not we can bring students back to the classroom.
A grab-and-go school lunch program will also be put into effect on March 30 at bus stops in areas of high need. Watch for more information on where to pick up a daily lunch.
For families with no access to the Internet, all Nampa School District school buildings will have outdoor coverage for about 50 devices at a time by the March 31 online instruction launch. As a reminder, several providers including AT&T, Verizon and T-Mobile are waiving data overage charges or late fees for the duration. In addition, the district continues to pursue other options for connectivity for our families.
We look forward to learning together in this new adventure. Thank you for your patience and support of students and staff during this challenging time.
