Virtual Classes and Wednesday Schedules

New Albany Middle School Transitioning to Virtual School

New Albany Middle School will be transitioning to virtual learning on Monday, December 7.  Virtual learning will continue at New Albany Middle School for the remainder of the semester from December 7-December 18.

This decision comes amid a rise in the number of students and staff who are currently quarantined at New Albany Middle School.  Other schools are being carefully and consistently monitored; however, New Albany Elementary School, New Albany High School, NAHS Career & Technical Center, and NASTUC Alternative School will remain in-person, traditional school at this time.

New Albany Middle School will begin the following virtual schedule on Monday, December 7.

1st Period 7:40-8:10 am 30 min

2nd Period 8:15-8:45 am 30 min

Break 8:50-9:05 am 15 min

Other Important Information:

NAMS Sports:

NAMS Basketball (in-season sport) will continue.  Players should contact their coach for practice times and locations, as well as game information.

NAMS students who participate in soccer (in-season sport) should contact their coach for practice times and game information.  NAMS students must have their own transportation to practices.

NAMS students who are participating in out of season sports will not practice during these two weeks.

Exams, Academic Expectations, & Paper Learning Packets

Semester exams will be administered virtually during the week of December 14.

Students who do not have reliable Internet should contact Anna Sloan at NAMS at 662-534-1820 for more information regarding paper learning packets.  These students will be held to the same expectations as students participating in virtual learning.  

All students will be held to the same academic standards as they have been this semester.  Assignments, projects, and tests will be graded just as they are in traditional, in-person classes.  NAMS has the same expectations for learning during this two-weeks.

School Meals & School Transportation

School meals for NAMS will be served Monday-Friday from 11:00 am – 12:30 pm daily.  Pick-up will be at the Pavilion by the Middle School Cafeteria. Breakfast and lunch meals will be distributed at this time.

Bus pick-up and drop-off times may be altered for elementary and high school students during these two weeks due the reduced number of student passengers. 

To ensure a positive and safe state testing environment for the Fall 2020 semester, the following adjustments will be made to the school schedule ONLY at New Albany High School for Friday, December 4th and Tuesday, December 8th.  Only students taking required state tests for graduation, including virtual students, will attend school in-person on these days.  All other students will log onto virtual school for these two days only.

Friday, December 4th: Only students currently enrolled in U.S. History and Biology this semester, including virtual students, will report to school as normal on Friday, December 4th to take their state test.  These state tests must be taken in-person and these tests are required for graduation.  Virtual students who take these specific tests must report to the front of the high school no later than 7:30 am to check in.

Tuesday, December 8th: Only students currently enrolled in English 10 and Algebra I this semester, including virtual students, will report to school as normal on Tuesday, December 8 to take their state test. These state tests must be taken in person and these tests are required for graduation.  Virtual students who take these tests must report to the front of the high school no later than 7:30 am to check in.

On both testing dates, please be sure the student’s iPad has been updated and is fully charged.  The students must have their iPads with them when they arrive at school for testing.

**Parents/guardians of students who are to take state tests, but are under quarantine on December 4th and/or December 8th, will soon be notified by school personnel of make-up testing dates.
