Superintendent and Reopening Updates


February 25, 2021


Dear NCPS Students & Families:


On Wednesday, February 24, 2021, the Northumberland County Public Schools’ teachers and staff received the second Moderna vaccine. Approximately 50% of our employees participated in the second vaccination clinic. As you are aware, many of our employees developed side effects as a result of yesterday’s vaccination. This situation resulted in a schedule change for February 25 and 26, 2021. 


Schedule Change: Students will be provided with 100% asynchronous learning February 25 and 100% asynchronous learning with new instruction being offered February 26. On Friday, our teachers and staff will have the opportunity to work from home and/or their classrooms. 


NCPS will resume a regular hybrid schedule next week with the Gold Group attending on March 1-2  and the Green Group attending on March 4-5. On behalf of our teachers and staff, I would like to thank you for your patience and understanding! We are working toward a full reopening for all of our schools, and the vaccine is another hurdle that will bring us closer to a safe reopening.


Expanded Return to Learning: Please know beginning March 15, the current Gold and Green Hybrid students may attend four (4) days per week: Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. Wednesday will remain an asynchronous day for all students. 


Waiting List for Virtual Students to Return to Expanded Learning: Currently students who participate in 100% virtual learning may be added to a Waiting List. The Waiting List form is now live in the PowerSchool Parent Portal. The form will be available only to parents whose children are 100% virtual. Please visit our division website at www.nucps.net for additional information. 



Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions and suggestions.

Sincerely,

Holly Wargo, Superintendent

Northumberland County Public Schools
