North East ISD has had to get creative amid the coronavirus campus closures, but the staff is showing up to make sure our students have what they need right now to continue learning. Today was sort of a unique first day of classes across the District.
“People have been so positive, they’ve been grateful, they’ve been excited to see their teachers,” said Nimitz Middle School Principal, Jennifer Cooper.
Students from Pre-K to twelfth grade began distance learning and for many that required a quick trip to school. Teachers and staff volunteered their time today to pass out school work packets, pencils and in some cases laptops to make sure students have what they need to continue learning through the campus closures.
“We’ve got all of our teachers online, teaching kids,” said Cooper. “They are tutoring kids and they’re live chatting, we’ve got a yoga class going on later today, we’ve got Nim-sanity on Wednesday and a cooking class, they are going above and beyond. They are incredible, they are incredible. They are going so above and beyond.”
If you have any questions about online learning and distance learning, contact your student’s teacher.
