Return to School Options

Option 1 - Traditional School (Brick and Mortar)
Students will go to school as normal, five days a week. Early release days will continue to occur every Wednesday.

*If your child is a student with disability being served through our Access Points, STARRS, or our medically fragile program, it is the recommendation of the Nassau County School District that you continue to send your student to their zoned/assigned school and to select Option 1 for your student.

Option 2 - School-Based Distance Learning
Students remain attached to the current school while receiving instruction online. Teaching will mirror the pace and rigor of the traditional brick and mortar school. Students choosing this option should make a semester commitment. All courses will not be available through school-based distance learning. For courses not available though school-based distance learning, students may take the course through Nassau Virtual or FLVS.

*Students with an IEP or 504 plan will have access to many accommodations that naturally occur in the virtual setting. Please note that some accommodations may not be possible to implement in the online educational setting. All related services will be delivered through teleservices or at your child's zoned/assigned school, and this decision will be made utilizing your student's IEP team process.

Option 3 - Nassau Virtual
Students who choose Nassau Virtual will withdraw from their traditional school and switch their enrollment to Nassau Virtual. Students choosing this option should make a semester commitment.

*Nassau Virtual School is a "school of choice." By enrolling in a school of choice, your child's Individualized Education Plan (IEP) or 504 Plan may become inactive. Therefore, all ESE/504 students must have an IEP/504 review prior to enrollment. A member of the Nassau Virtual School staff must attend this review. This means that the exceptional education or related services which were provided to your child at his or her previous school of enrollment may not be available at Nassau Virtual School. Students with an IEP or 504 Plan will have access to many accommodations that naturally occur in  the virtual setting. Please note that some accommodations may not be possible to implement in the online educational setting.
