Weekly Announcement - August, 2, 2020

Hello New Tech families this is Principal Wright with the weekly update!

 Finally, it is official! It’s back to school week scholars! Exactly 4 days until the 1st day of the 20-21 school year. School is scheduled to start Friday, August 7th at 9:00 AM scholars. With this in mind, we still have quite a few laptops to be distributed. Thank you to the freshmen, juniors, and seniors that were able to make it this weekend! Thank you to the New Tech staff for all of your help and a special Thank you to our parent volunteer & PTSA member Mrs. Renee Bynum Banks. We really appreciate all of your assistance Friday and Saturday!

Tomorrow all sophomores are scheduled to pick-up laptops from 1:00 until 4:00 pm. Please note the following: When you arrive to New Tech please text the number

919-249-8578, text the first and last name of the New Tech student, color, make, and model of the vehicle. Please remain in your vehicle in the line-up. Remember, a parent must come with the New Tech student and the parent must have an NC driver’s license or NC ID. Please plan to spend about 20 minutes to complete this process.

We are watching the storm so if there are any changes to the time of laptop distribution scheduled for tomorrow, I will complete a connect-ED to let you know details of the change.  For now please plan to pick-up tomorrow.

Junior and senior scholars will receive a zoom link tomorrow, Monday, August 3rd  for the 6:00 PM information session to your New Tech emails. Please check your New Tech email tomorrow after 12 noon for the link. In addition, the zoom link for the sophomore information session for Tuesday, August 4th  at 6:00 PM will be sent by 12 noon Tuesday. Sophomore scholars, please check your New Tech emails after 12 noon Tuesday. Links for the virtual classroom visits will be sent Tuesday, August 4th at 4:00 PM to 10th, 11th, and 12th graders to their New Tech emails.

Freshmen links for the virtual classroom visits will be sent to parent emails Tuesday, August 4th  afternoon at 4:00 PM as well.

That’s all for now! Stay healthy, stay safe in the right place, at the right time, doing the right thing, with the right people! Thank you for listening and make it a great evening!
