What is a NTI Day?
An NTI Day allows Fulton County Schools to provide non-traditional instruction on days when students are not able to attend school. On the designated NTI Days, students will have assignments (either online or paper packets) that provide continuation of learning. Depending on the student’s grade level, the assignments may contain lessons from reading/language arts, mathematics, social studies, science, Spanish and writing along with other cross-curricular lessons and opportunities. Some lessons may be supported with online resources but can be completed without access to the Internet.
What are teachers and administrators doing on NTI Days?
Teachers and staff will report to school on NTI Days if they are able. Teachers and principals will be in their schools working on instructional programming. They will also be easily accessible via telephone, email, Skype, or other teacher designated means for any students who need assistance in completing the NTI Day lessons.
How will students submit their work from the NTI Days?
Students will receive copies of the work packets in a specially designated NTI folder. Students should return their work to school in that same NTI folder on the day they return to school. Online assignments may be completed and submitted online to the individual teacher.
What happens if my child misplaces the NTI Day folder or packet?
NTI Day packets will be distributed to students at school on Friday, March 13th. The lessons will also be posted for additional access on the Fulton County website: www.fulton.kyschools.us If a student fails to submit the NTI Day work upon returning to school, that student will be required to make up the work during non-instructional time including after school sessions and/or on Saturdays.
Will all school-sponsored events be canceled?
Based on state recommendations, all large group gatherings will be canceled. KHSAA has also mandated an athletic DEAD PERIOD for all sport activities immediately and running through Sunday, April 12th. This includes competitions, practices, weight-training, skill development, camps, open gyms, and field activities.
Will food services be accessible at the schools?
All students are eligible to receive breakfast and lunch from our schools. School personnel will be utilizing the bus routes to deliver meals to our students on the following dates: Tuesday, March 17th – Friday, March 20th and Tuesday, March 24th – Friday, March 27th. Professional Development Days will be held on Monday, March 16th and Monday, March 23rd with no meal deliveries. Parents/Guardians can contact the schools if they would like to pick up meals on those dates at the FCEMS Cafeteria OR if their child/children do not ride the bus and need a meal delivered.
What can I do to help my child during this time?
Parents and guardians can help support the school system by providing assistance to their child/children in completing their assignments. In the event that a child needs additional help, please know that our teachers and staff will be available for support in completing their assignments. If the school does not have an updated number to reach each household, please contact the school. Administration and school staff will be making contact to support our students during this time.
