Everything you need for remote and hybrid learning
The Superintendent announced on March 5 that grades 9-12 have the option to return for hybrid learning on April 5, 2021. In this hybrid reopening, you can decide whether you want to stay home for 1) remote learning all week or 2) go to school in-person two days per week and stay home for remote 3 days per week. For those who decide to come to school for a hybrid schedule, if your last name starts A-L, you will come into the building on Mondays and Tuesdays. If your last name starts M-Z, you will come into the building on Thursdays and Fridays. If you have an issue with which days of the week you will be scheduled for hybrid, please contact the Principal, Mr. Crocco at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (475)220-7710. We are asking that students and their families discuss these options and then fill out the Survey for MBA Hybrid Return on April 5, 2021. We are committed to ensuring the safety and well-being of all students and staff, and we will continue to communicate changes as they occur.
New Haven Public Schools opened September 3, 2020. Students have been participating remotely, as directed by NHPS. On April 5, 2021, students who sign up in advance can return for the hybrid schedule. In this hybrid reopening, students who sign up for remote only will attend their classes virtually every day of the week. Students who sign up for in-person instruction will go to school in-person two days per week and attend advisory and classes virtually the other three days. For those who decide to come to school for a hybrid schedule, if your last name starts A-L, you will come into the building on Mondays and Tuesdays. If your last name starts M-Z, you will come into the building on Thursdays and Fridays.

If you indicated on your orientation documents that you are in need of internet service, or if your internet service is not reliable, we are in the process of distributing Kajeet Hotspots. We will reach out to you individually.
We know that many families depend on the Internet, whether for school or at home. We are excited to inform you that you may qualify for 12 months of FREE Internet Essentials service. If you are interested in obtaining the service, please contact our school and we will provide you with the Voucher Code to use in your application. https://www.internetessentials.com/. Also, if "Eduroam" pops up under available WiFi networks, you can use it for free using your NHPS email.
