It’s Official: NH Schools Closed for the Rest of the Year
Well, it's official. Governor Chris Sununu says NH schools are closed for the rest of the school year.
WMUR reports that this applies to all public and private schools for the rest of the year.
According to the report, the Governor says while the decision wasn't an easy one, it is necessary to prevent risk due to COVID-19.
The governor called New Hampshire the "gold standard in remote learning", according to the news channel. He also added that all spring sports will be cancelled and is asking the schools to implement programs to help kids catch up on their studies in September.
How about grades? Well, the Governor is asking schools for flexibility due to the stress of Coronavirus and remote learning, WMUR stated.
The Education Commissioner is also calling on teachers to help kids stay focused while they are learning at home, according to WMUR.
Sununu also addressed the disappointment of students missing out on graduation during his press conference and said how proud he is of Granite Staters.
