August 10, 2020

 

Dear NPHS Parents and Students:

 

Welcome to the 2020-21 school year!  We hope this letter finds you and your family members safe and well.  Soon it will be Monday, August 17, 2020, the first day of school, and we will begin a new academic year at North Park HS.  The faculty and staff are eager and honored to serve the fine students and families of North Park High School.  We are looking forward to a great school year.

 

Due to the increase spread of the COVID-19 virus, Baldwin Park Unified schools will begin the school year with Distance Learning.  All instruction will be conducted online as directed by the Los Angeles County Department of Education and the Los Angeles County Health Department.  If and when the number of COVID cases decreases to a safe level, the BPUSD in conjunction with the LA County Departments of Education and Health, will begin phase 2 of reopening and introduce blended hybrid learning with reduced number of students on campus.  We want to ensure the safety of all!  Please wear a mask and practice social distancing on campus.  Please stay home if you are sick and experiencing any of the following symptoms: cough, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing and fever or chills and if you have had contact with a person known to be infected with COVID-19 in the last 14 days.  Thank you for your cooperation.

 

The school registration process has been taking place online.   In previous school years, families would pick up a registration packet, complete the enrollment forms at home, and return the completed packet to Ms. Rios at North Park HS.   For the 2020-2021 school year, parents will access and complete the registration forms digitally through the Illuminate Parent Portal.  Parents will need to visit the Illuminate platform to create an Illuminate Parent Portal username and password.  Once your Parent Portal is set-up, you will be able to log onto Illuminate, access and complete all registration documents.  Please visit the North Park HS Website, https://nphs.bpusd.net and find the “Online Registration” tab.  The registration tab will have step by step instructions that will guide you through the process: (4 step process - create the parent portal password, complete all registration documents, reading the Student Handbook and other NPHS documents, and answer a one question survey).   The deadline to complete registration is Thursday, August 13th.  Please make sure all forms are completed to ensure a great start of the school year.

 

North Park High School is dedicated to the success of all students.  We recognize the challenges of the 21st Century, and together we will meet those challenges as a school community.  Of course, it continues to be very important that parents and students help in maintaining a safe and scholarly learning environment at North Park High School: 1) Be punctual to every class, 2) Wear dress-code appropriate clothing each day, and 3) Come prepared to learn. 

 

North Park High School has much to offer our students:  Faculty members meet regularly to develop rigorous and relevant lessons that meet the challenges of the Common Core Standards and provide 21st Century skills.   The success of our students pivots on their ability to think critically, communicate effectively, collaborate creatively, and develop a strong work ethic.  NPHS has developed College and Career Pathways: Auto Mechanic Technology, and Child Development.  Each College and Career Pathways provides articulated curriculum for students to explore their post-secondary opportunities and interests.   

 

Our faculty and staff are working diligently to develop structures and practices that will ensure academic success for all students.  NPHS will be communicating important school information via Connect Ed phone messages, email, and the NPHS website: https://nphs.bpusd.net.  Please check your phone messages and emails frequently for important school information.  Students should use their BPUSD email account when checking for school messages and communicating with NPHS staff members.  Parents should use the personal email they submitted during the registration process to check for school messages and communicating with NPHS staff.  Parents can get assistance creating a personal email account by contact NPHS and speak with a helpful staff member.

 

Please review and follow the directs regarding Chromebook technology distribution and class instructional schedules for the Fall trimester.  You can find this information on the latter pages of this letter.  More information will be communicated soon regarding: the distribution of individual student class schedules, invitations to specific teacher’s Google Classrooms, invitations to parent information meetings, and access to counselors.

 

We are looking forward to working closely with our parents and students in anticipation of successful school year.  Thank you for your time.

 

Sincerely,

 

Anthony Ippolito, Principal

For Fall 2020, the middle schools, junior high schools, and high schools will convert to a Quarter System, this means North Park HS students will take only four courses for approximately six weeks each.

It will also ensure students have daily instructional time for all four classes, rather than block scheduling on alternating days.
