Newark Digital Academy return of students

Newark Digital Academy return of students
As of September 28th, Newark City Schools will be returning to in-person student education. With the unique setting that Newark Digital Academy works within, the restart of in-person tutoring will be as follows.
  • Intervention Specialists will still be conducting “business as usual” SDI services for any student with an IEP. 
  • Regular Education teachers will be encouraged to still provide tutoring via zoom (class sized and one-on-one tutoring) for NDA students
  • Face-to-face, one-on-one tutoring will be offered in 50-minute blocks to all students
  • One-on-one tutoring needs to be scheduled beforehand and walk-ins will be asked to schedule an appointment
  • Upon arrival students must stop at the office window (Chris). Student will state who they are working with, and at what time so the front office can confirm the appointment on the teacher’s calendar. 
  • Any student that arrives without an appointment, however, could stay for the next available appointment, will be given the option to go to the bullpen in the orientation room. If they elect to do so, front office will add their name to a teacher’s calendar, inform the teacher of the appointment, and assign a seat for that student to go to in the bullpen. 
  • Social distancing will still be in effect for students and staff (6 feet recommended, 3 feet with a mask). 
  • All surfaces that a student has contact with will need to be disinfected after that student leaves and must have time to set before wiping. It is recommended at least 10 minutes between students in an area to allow for the disinfectant to do its job. 
With having only three classrooms, housing 16 teachers, it is important that we stick to these guidelines, as we are already working to keep students and staff stay socially distanced within the small space that teacher work within.

9/11 Remembrance

Today marks the 19th anniversary of the September 11th tragedy.  NDA wishes to remember those fallen heros and honor the survivors of this terrible tragedy.  To read 9/11 survivor testimonies, please take a look at the following webinar:
On September 11th, 2001, about 3,000 people lost their lives during the attacks on the Twin Towers, Pentagon and United Airlines Flight 93.  First, at 8:46am, American Airlines Flight 11 crashed into the north tower of the World Trade Center in New York City.  Next, at 9:03am, United Airlines Flight 175 crashed into the south tower of the World Trade Center.  Afterwards, at 9:37am, American Airlines Flight 77 hits the Pentagon Building in Washington, D.C.  Finally, at 10:03am, United Airlines Flight 93 crashed into a field near Shanksville, PA.
- Paraphrased from Parade.com/125076/parade/09-tribute-to-9-11/
Around the country, many pause to remember those who lost their lives on 9/11 while also vowing to "never forget."
“It was the worst day we have ever seen, but it brought out the best in all of us.”
 —Senator John Kerry

school lunch

NCS to offer meals at no cost for kids through Dec. 31

Newark City Schools will be offering lunch and breakfast to children ages 2 to 18 at no cost, once per day starting Tuesday, Sept. 8. This is because the USDA passed a ruling to allow us to serve at no cost 1 lunch and 1 breakfast a day Monday through Friday, through December 31. Meals will continue to be served between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. at our buildings while students are learning virtually. Students can pick up 1 lunch and 1 breakfast meal daily between those times. Once we return to in-person classes, meals will be offered at regularly scheduled times for all students at no charge.

NCS to return to in-person classes week of Sept. 28

When Newark City Schools made the decision to start the 2020-21 school year virtually, the top priority was to keep students and staff safe while providing a quality education. We have been encouraged by the continued decline in COVID-19 cases within our district boundaries during the past month. As a result, NCS currently plans to transition back to in-person learning for all students the week of September 28. Students in Pre-K through grade 2 will start Sept. 28; grades Pre-K through 6, and 9, will attend Sept. 29; and the full district will attend on Sept. 30. Please click here for more information.

We will continue to work with the health department to evaluate data and information during the weeks following Labor Day. The district will notify families of any changes by Mon., Sept. 21.

Students will return to school in phases:

  • Mon., Sept. 28: Pre-K, Kindergarten, grades 1, 2

  • Tues., Sept. 29: Pre-K, Kindergarten, grades 1, 2, 34, 5, 6 and 9
