Virtual Classes

New Albany School District has announced their schedules for the next several weeks. This decision comes amid a rise in the number of positive cases and quarantined individuals among students and staff in our district.

Beginning Monday, December 14, ALL students in the New Albany School District will be transitioning to virtual learning. Virtual learning will continue for the remainder of the semester.  However, it is suggested if your family is able to begin virtual learning on Thursday, December 10 that you do so.  New Albany Middle School will follow the schedule that was released last week.  New Albany Elementary and New Albany High School will publicize their virtual learning schedule for the week of December 14 through the School Status messaging platform.

The Christmas holiday break for students is scheduled for Saturday, December 19, 2020 – Tuesday, January 5, 2021. During this time, school buildings will be closed and no virtual learning is scheduled.

Beginning Wednesday, January 6, 2021, the New Albany School District will utilize a hybrid schedule to transition back to the school setting.  This will be a schedule similar to the one that was used the first month of school during the Fall.  This schedule will be used from January 6 – January 22 and may be utilized for a longer period of time if needed. (This schedule will be published on December 15 via New Albany School District website, Twitter, and Facebook.)

Other Important Information:

State Testing:

New Albany High School students who still need to complete state testing should report to the school on the date and time as directed by New Albany High School.

Athletics:

Basketball, soccer, and bowling (in-season sports) will continue for the remainder of the 2020 year.  Coaches will be in contact with players about practice times and locations as well as game information. Students must have their own transportation to practices.  Students who are participating in out of season sports will not practice for the remainder of the 2020 year.

Paper Learning Packets

Students who do not have reliable Internet should contact the Virtual School Administrator at their individual schools for more information regarding paper learning packets.  These students will be held to the same expectations as students participating in virtual learning.

Academic Expectations

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.

School Meals

School meals for New Albany School District will be served Monday-Friday from 11:00 am – 1:00 pm daily.  Pick-up will be at the Pavilion by the Middle School Cafeteria. Breakfast and lunch meals will be distributed at this time.  (This institution is an equal opportunity provider.)
