    district resources

    Update on the "Home Learning Guidance and Resources" that are being provided by the Student Learning Department:  

    • The home learning resources found on the districts website are updated by noon each Monday with the prior week's answer keys and a new week of assignments.  All student comments in the Google Classrooms are being answered on a timely basis. 
    • Some teachers may begin hosting Google Meets with students.  This Google Meet is simply an opportunity to connect with students.  These are not required.
    • AP exam updates are coming in regularly.  Later this week we will get more detail on the modified AP exams.  Exam dates have not been finalized, but we know that all exams will be shortened to 45 minutes, will cover a reduced amount of content, and will be taken online.  Our teachers are continuing to offer instructional resources through Google Classrooms to support their students' learning and preparation for the exams.
    • Many of our dual enrollment students are continuing to complete their college level work online.  The district will be gathering specific information about each dual enrollment student in the coming weeks regarding their status toward course completion.
    • All statewide assessments for the remainder of the year have been suspended.  The statewide ACT date has been moved to June 2 and there will also be a Fall statewide ACT testing date set in the future for students that could not make the June 2 date.

    Remember:

    • Work packets will no longer be printed and placed at distribution locations.  All work packet materials are found on the DeSoto Parish Schools website under the link "Home Learning Guidance and Resources"...within the Google Classrooms. 
    • Home Learning Resources will be updated each Monday by noon except for the week of Spring Break.
    • The learning resources are classified in Google Classroom by subject and grade level (classroom codes are provided).  
    • In addition to the google classroom resources, there is a large listing of general resources to support all grade levels.
    • Remember electronic devices that have internet access go beyond the traditional laptop or desktop.  Some other devices are:  iPad/tablet, Kindle fire, PS4, xBox live, cell phones, etc.  
    • The learning resources are not mandated.  They are to support the learning that has already taken place this year and are aligned to Tier 1/highly effective curriculum.

    Message from Mrs. Phillips

    Due to the concern for public and employee health, the NDHS office is closed until further notice.  The DeSoto Parish School Board is monitoring the status of our current health concerns.  There is a posted link to Frequently Asked Questions that is updated daily on the district and school website.  There are also daily Coronavirus Updates posted as well.

    Academic guidance is also being provided by the district.  Please monitor the district website for recommended activities for students in core content areas. 

    DeSoto Parish Schools will offer Breakfast and Lunch for students through curbside service and satellite method in cooperation with local churches. Please refer to the FAQ on the website for information about distribution as it is updated.

    If you have a question or concern that is not answered in the above locations and/or is isolated to NDHS, please reach out to tamela.phillips@desotopsb.com. There are many uncertainties at this time, but we will do our best to answer questions.  And as always, we will keep the best interests of our students at heart.  Prayers for safety and health for all students and family members of NDHS Griffins!!
