NTI DAYS BEGIN APRIL 6TH!!!

NTI Days Begin April 6th!!! 

 

As we are approaching April 6, we just wanted to share some important reminders.  Please know that your Morton staff is here for you and is striving to make NTI days a great learning experience,, while at the same time decrease the stress of distance learning. Your teachers will all be available during their office hours to answer any questions you might have about their content. Please reach out to them with your questions. They will love hearing from you!

 

How will students receive instruction?

By April 6, teachers will communicate with students as to how lessons will be delivered to them.  Students should check their email and/or the NTI link on the Morton homepage daily to stay aware of expectations. Some teachers have chosen a digital platform such as Google Classroom, enVision, Collections, etc. while other teachers will be emailing lessons to students.  Many parents have stopped by to pick up Chromebooks for use during NTI days.  If you have not been able to check one out as of yet and are interested in doing so, please contact us, and we will do our best to make that option available to you.  For students who do not have digital access, paper packets can be provided for you; just let your Team Leader know.

 

For any student with a specialized education plan, accommodations and modifications will be implemented.  Teachers and Case Managers will be communicating more individualized information with families.

 

What if I need technology support?

We are fortunate that the district is setting up a temporary helpdesk to call for any family needing technical support with a student’s FCPS account or Chromebook.  The Tech Support number is 381-4410.  Someone will be available to talk to you Monday – Friday from 8 am to 8 pm.
