When will the schedules be available and will they be emailed?
Schedules will be available on FamilyLink on Wednesday, July 29th by 9:00 am.
How do we update our contact forms like we usually do at Welcome Week?
On FamilyLink, you will be able to see what contact information we have on file. Please email changes to firstname.lastname@example.org. The annual forms will also be available on FamilyLink (on Wednesday, July 29th by 9:00 am).
Is it possible to send forms and emails to the students as well as the parents?
Beginning next week, we will be sending important information to both parents and students (through their school email). Grade-level announcements will also be made through grade level Google Classrooms (7th grade, 12th grade, etc).
How are online classes going to be structured? Will there be certain hours they need to be on?
North Pointe’s online learning has been designed to as closely mirror the regular school day as possible, so students can easily transition between online and on-campus, and to minimize the need to hire additional teachers. Student will follow their regular schedule and teachers will take attendance each period through Zoom or Google Meets (teachers have a choice of which platform they use).
If they do online learning for the 1st quarter will they be able to participate in sports and or after school programs if they still want to?
Will we be able to choose online learning until we deem it safe for our children to return to on-campus learning?
Yes. We will be providing online classes for the entire 2020-2021 school year.
If we choose to do online later on, can we?
If my child does online classes and I’m not able to help, will he be able to get ahold of the teacher for any questions he has?? I am not ready for him to go back to school but am worried he might fall behind.
Online students will still follow their regular schedule, so they will have daily access to their teachers. Teachers will also be available for tutoring from 2:35 – 3:25 Monday – Thursday. Parents will not be “homeschooling” North Pointe students who do online classes.
What resources are available for kids who are struggling with learning online if they need help?
Online students will “attend class” via Zoom or Google Meets, so they have the same access to teachers that they have when they are on-campus. In addition, students can e-mail their teachers directly and attend after-school tutoring sessions via Zoom.
When you start on-campus again, are you requiring kids to wear masks? I’m a parent who does not believe in masks.
Phoenix and Maricopa County both require anyone over the age of 6 to wear masks in public. Therefore, students on campus are required to wear masks.
