Remote Learning at New City School
When faced with changes to our regular school schedule due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our faculty was tasked with pivoting to remote learning for the remainder of the 2020 spring semester. While remote learning cannot take the place of time in the classroom with teachers and peers, we are striving to make the most of the platforms that are available to us. This page contains some examples of work that has been done in our different grade levels during the extended closure of our school's physical space due to the pandemic.
Not only have our students received virtual instruction (both live and pre-recorded), but they also participate in a daily live Morning Meeting with their teacher and classmates, as well as regular 1:1 meetings and small group activities. Teachers have also hosted social times with the students, and made themselves available to the students for questions during standing "office hours". We have been so impressed with how all members of our community have come together during this time, and have dedicated themselves to making sure our students receive the best possible experience while quickly adapting to an ever-changing situation.
