Newport News Public Schools is planning for a gradual return to in-person instruction through a phase-in approach that will bring students back to school in smaller groups by program and grade level. In-person instruction would resume following the hybrid learning model with students attending school on their assigned two days each week. The three days that students are not in school, they will continue their learning by logging into Canvas on their Chromebook or computer for guided and independent assignments. In most cases, students will work independently; however, some students may receive personalized instruction in small groups.

The proposed plan will be presented during a special School Board meeting at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, October 6, 2020. The meeting will broadcast live on NNPS-TV (Cox Channel 47 in Newport News, Verizon Fios Channel 17), and stream live on, ROKU and Apple TV.

This important form must be completed for each child as soon as possible. The intent form will open on Monday and close on Friday, October 16, at 11:59 p.m.; however, an early response is appreciated.

Parents and guardians without access to ParentVUE should contact their child's school to create an account and complete the Intent Form.
