Welcome to Nogales High School

NHS Families
As you have all been informed, NUSD will be returning to school on March 15th after Spring break. At this time, families will have the choice of two options to send their child to back to school:

Hybrid: In the hybrid models, the student body will be divided alphabetically. The hybrid model will allow the students to attend classes with their teachers 2 days a week: Group A, will come to school on Monday and Tuesday and Group B, will come to school on Thursday and Friday. Wednesdays will remain as they are now for extra help from teachers. On the days that the students are not physically in class, they will login to the class and attend remotely via Google meets.
Online only: The other option for our students is to remain completely online. In this option, the student will login in each day Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday to the class Google meets session.

This survey will be vital to make sure all students are assigned properly and make the transition as smooth as possible. Students will be allowed to transition from one model to the other NHS with administrative approval.

Thank you for your cooperation in filling out this survey by Sunday, February 29th.

Familias NHS

Como todos ustedes han sido informados NUSD regresarán a la escuela el 15 de Marzo después del descanso de primavera. En este momento, las familias tendrán la opción de dos opciones para enviar a su hijo de vuelta a la escuela:

• Híbrido: En los modelos híbridos el cuerpo del estudiante se dividirá alfabéticamente. El modelo híbrido permitirá a los estudiantes asistir a clases con sus profesores 2 días a la semana: Grupo A, vendrá a la escuela el lunes y martes y el Grupo B, vendrá a la escuela los jueves y viernes. Los miércoles permanecerán como ahora para obtener ayuda adicional de los maestros. En los días en que los estudiantes no están físicamente en clase, se iniciarán en la clase y asistirán de forma remota a través de Google meets.

• Sólo en línea: La otra opción para nuestros estudiantes es permanecer completamente en línea. En esta opción, el alumno se inicia sesión en cada día lunes, martes, jueves y viernes en la sesión de la clase que Google reúne.

Esta encuesta será vital para asegurarse de que todos los estudiantes son asignados correctamente y hacer que el transiti ... lo más suave posible. Los estudiantes podrán pasar de un modelo al otro con aprobación administrativa.
Gracias por su cooperación para completar esta encuesta antes del domingo 29 de febrero.
