Greetings North Plains Families!
Things are changing on a daily basis and we are scrambling to keep up! Yesterday we handed out 98 chromebooks, and I know several families need more. We will check out more to families that need them tomorrow from 10:30 - 12:30. I had to move this back a 1/2 hour because of the bus that brings food at 9:57.
Here is the link for the distance learning that went live today. https://sites.google.com/hsd.k12.or.us/hsd-online-learning/home This is the best way for students to get access to their education and I'm hopeful most of you are able to access this. If you need tech help, please contact Brenda Bottema If you are unable to access the internet and need paper copies, these will be available using the "drive through" method each Wed. from 11-12 PM beginning Wed., April 15. We do have paper copies here if you need the supplemental learning lessons until then.
Hotspots are in and will be available for those that need them soon. Please let me know if you are in dire need of a hot spot. We will only have a few, so please only reach out if you can't access the internet in another way!
Food is available for children ages 1 - 18. Buses are now delivering food to families in our area with the schedule below:
9:30 AM Evergreen MS
9:57 AM North Plains Elementary School
10:11 AM NW Yorkshire St @ NW Turel Dr

Here is a link to some Community resources during this challenging time. Information is changing at a rapid pace and the best way to get the latest and most accurate information regarding what is happening at HSD, including NPES, is at Coronavirus info
As of now, our NPES kinder night will be May 7 at 5:30 PM here in the library. You will be able to meet the teachers and learn all about kindergarten at NPES! If you know of anyone who has a kindergarten age child for next year, please encourage them to come! Here is the link to the online enrollment process: Kinder enrollment
The best place for district updates is the district website, but know that I will post things on this page as I know them.
