Weekly Announcement - July 19, 2020

Hello, New Tech families, this is Principal Wright with some important updates!

Class of 2021 congratulations on taking your senior portraits last week!

Scholars only 18 more calendar days until the first day of school, Friday, August 7th, and Durham Tech classes start Monday, August 17th! 

As you know, the school will look different. New Tech is prepared to offer robust online learning for all of our scholars! All classes, including most of our scholars’ college classes, will be online. At New Tech, we are committed to ensuring our scholars receive high-quality instruction. With that said, please note the following:

Seniors, please check your New Tech email for directions relating to schedule review. The email will be from Ms. C. Davis.

All new students to DPS this year must enroll using the online system on the DPS website. The enrollment form must be completed in its entirety to be considered registered for the school year and for students to get a schedule. So please complete this process today if you have not.

Every student will receive a laptop and will be required to complete all assignments virtually.

Deployment of devices is scheduled for the week of July 27th, pending the delivery of devices to schools. During this week, scholars will be expected to pick-up laptops by grade level.

Due to the information we need to disburse to all scholars, a virtual open house will be divided into two parts – we will have an information session and a separate classroom visit session. Information sessions will be as follows:

Freshman: Thursday, July 30th – 6:00 PM

Sophomore: Tuesday, August 4th – 6:00 PM

Seniors & Juniors: Monday, August 3rd – 6:00 PM

All classroom visits – Wednesday, August 5th TBD

Remember, all sessions will be virtual (online only) – I will have additional information for you this week. That’s all for now! Thank you for listening! Stay safe, stay healthy, be in the right place, at the right time, doing the right thing, with the right people!
