Update on remote learning opportunities for students. We have a teacher who is assigned to our K-5 students who are providing a doctor’s note and require remote learning. Currently, we have about 10 students at the time. Noble Middle School has no students at this time who are remote that are outside of the Noble Virtual Middle School. NVMS has 20 students and the program is having a very positive start to the year.
