On February 22nd Nixyaawii will begin hybrid learning. Freshmen and Sophomores will come to school a full day, in person, on Monday and Wednesday. Juniors and Seniors will come in person on Tuesday and Thursday. On the days kids are not in person, they will be online at home continuing with Comprehensive Distance Learning (CDL). Students will attend their regular schedule on all four days. Our plan is to follow this model until spring break. After spring break we plan to bring ALL students back to NCS full time.
We have developed a plan to safely return students to our building. We have 160 different requirements in place designed by the Oregon Department of Education (Ready School Safe Learner). In addition we also worked with Pendleton School District, CTUIR, Yellowhawk and the NCS staff to make this return safe for all students and staff.
If you are unsure about your student returning to in person learning, you will need to contact the principal as soon as possible to go over your student's options.
If you have questions or concerns or would like more information about this plan please contact Ryan Heinrich, Principal at 541-429-7903 or firstname.lastname@example.org or stop in and visit.
Safety procedures will be followed each day, and can be read here: Hybrid Safety Procedures
Students will enter the building one at a time. Freshmen, Juniors and Seniors will enter through the main doors. Sophomores will enter through the east doors.
