COVID Health & Safety FAQs
Q: What type of education would a student receive during the 10 days they are asked to stay home if they test positive or a close family member does?
A. First and foremost, we want parents to focus on their children’s health when they are absent for any illness. NBISD teachers will continue to use Canvas and Seesaw as a method to deliver content to the students electronically, giving students the ability to access work from home when absent for illness. Students who need to stay home for an illness or to quarantine are still eligible to complete work assignments just as if they were sick for any other reason. Please contact your child’s teacher(s) to determine how to support your child while at home. Just like other illness-related absences, students can make up all work upon returning to school.
Q: If I am worried about the spread of COVID-19 due to GA-36, can I request that my child switch to remote learning for the remainder of the year?
A. Unfortunately, remote learning is not being funded by the state this year and, as such, is not being offered in NBISD. Please contact your campus administrator for questions regarding ways to support your student.
Q: If my child becomes infected with COVID-19 or has to quarantine during the school year, how do I ensure they get their work?
A. Students who are enrolled in face-to-face learning who then need to stay home for an illness or to quarantine are still eligible to complete work assignments just as if they were sick for any other reason. Please contact your child’s teacher(s) to determine how to support your child while at home. It is important that your child focuses on getting well, and students can make up all work upon return to school.
Q: What will grading look like for students who are out sick or due to close contact?
A. Grading for the students that are out due to being sick or close contact will function as it has in the past. Students are afforded one day for every sick day to complete work that was missed. Please contact the campus when you are keeping your child home so we can provide information.
