Dear Nyack High School Students, Parents, and Guardians,
Although the 2020-2021 school year will undoubtedly present unique challenges, the ever-changing landscape will also require us to use our 21st Century Skills effectively to navigate these uncharted waters. The ability to communicate, think creatively, problem solve, and use higher level thinking skills will contribute to our overall success. While instruction will take place synchronously and asynchronously, the program is designed to engage you cognitively, be reflective of your needs, and remain of high interest.
As always, your teachers, counselors, and administrators are available to assist you as we travel on this journey together. Contact us if you have any questions, concerns, or suggestions.
