Return to learning plan

We will attend school in person (assuming they're not opting into distance learning). We've divided the school week up by community for Scenario 3; Scenario Guide

The days each community will attend are:

Tuesday: Anthony, Carrie, Cory

Wednesday: Jim, Jenn, Jake

Thursday: Nichole, Paul, Nick

If we are able to move up to Scenario 2 of our Return to Learn plan, we will send out the 2x per week schedule at that time. Please let us know if you have any additional questions, covid19@newcountryschool.com

Yoga with Jenny – I recorded this yoga video for Wellness time. I know there are a lot of yoga videos out there on the web, but I thought I’d personalize it for those of you who were coming to yoga everyday (Diann!) so you could continue to attend yoga with me! It’s imperfect, but it’s real! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f2tXJW6aqy0
