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 for additional information. 

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