Connect Ed Updates

11/9/2020

Report cards will be mailed Monday, November 9th. If you have any questions, please reach out to your child’s teacher. If you need assistance with parent portal, please email Mrs. Young, our data manager, at youngg@gcsnc.com. Please remember that grades are assigned as they are as if we were in school. All grades will count towards student’s GPA. It is very important for us and for students to connect and communicate so that we can support your student during these unusual times.

Guilford County Schools are closed for students and staff Wednesday, Nov 11 in honor of Veterans Day. We thank all of our brave men and women of the Ram Community who have served and who continue to serve. Thank you for your commitment and service.

The North Carolina Driving School is now scheduling new opportunities for students to register for virtual driver’s education classes. Even though virtual, classes are being scheduled for students at specific schools to help manage the large number of students across the district that are waiting for driver’s education classes.

To help with the backlog of students who have been waiting since March 2020, only students 15 years and older can register for new classes. The number of students in these virtual classes is limited to 30. Classes are being added regularly, so check regularly at www.ncdrivingschool.com for class schedules and registration information. Northeast Guilford High cannot register students for drivers education so families must go to the website to register.

Pending decisions made regarding health metrics, Ram athletic contests will resume on Mon. 11/17.  Due to COVID regulations, spectators will be limited, but please lift up and encourage our athletes. Reach out to your coach or our athletic director, Coach Sharp, for more details.

Workouts continue next week for volleyball, cross country, and men’s basketball in the late afternoon. ROTC and Band also continues.

We have been lucky enough to be able to provide any student who needs a laptop with a laptop. However, the devices ordered by the district should start to arrive this month. Each student will be assigned a new device. We will inform you when we have new devices so stay tuned!

Families, we miss you, We miss our students. Please do not hesitate to reach out to us if you have any needs or need any assistance.

EOS Survey

Tomorrow we need every student to complete the Equal Opportunity Schools (EOS) survey. Teachers will use this survey as a class or attendance assignment. EOS works with schools like ours all across the country with the goal of increasing participation and success of students of color and low-income in Advanced Placement (AP) courses. The results of the survey will be used to create a profile for each student and assist the school team in identifying students who are great candidates for AP courses. The link to the survey is available below.

Why should I do this?

Even if you are not interested in taking or feel ready to take an AP course, we still want you to take this survey so we can gain a better understanding of your perspective and work to improve our AP program for all students Your voice is extremely important to us and the decisions we make about student learning. If you have any questions, please reach out to your child’s teacher.
