The Norman Howard School
Supplemental Guidance Required By NYS
Our Current Model: In-Person, 5 Days, Full Day
In-Person Instruction: The Norman Howard School students and staff report to the school building 5 days a week and follow all health and safety requirements outlined in our reopening plan.
Cohorts: NHS has always valued our small class sizes. Student cohorts will be created by grade level (current max, 20 students) for core classes (excluding math and reading). Due to our students’ learning needs, our math and reading classes are scheduled based on current skill levels. These classes may mix students from one or more grades. All health and safety measures listed in this document will apply to students and staff who are in building .
Hybrid Learning: In times where risk is higher, the in-person schedule can be modified to accommodate a hybrid model. Grades 5, 6, 7, 9A will be in school 5 days, all day. Grades 8-12 classes will happen in the building daily, approximately 50% of each grade level will attend on site, the other 50% of the grade level will attend class live via Google Meets. All health and safety measures listed in this document will apply to students and staff who are in building
