NEA-New Hampshire agrees that protective measures should be taken to help slow and contain the spread of COVID-19, and supports the Governor’s recent actions closing schools.
“It’s important to remember that while school buildings may be closed, school remains in session with teachers and students continuing their important work through remote learning,” said Megan Tuttle, NEA-NH President. “Education professionals continue their important role in the communities we serve. We are working hard, stepping up to the challenge of bringing distance learning to every community in New Hampshire so our students’ education can continue.”
New Hampshire schools have already delivered remote learning opportunities in cases such as blizzards and short-term weather closures. “The prospect of an extended period of remote learning is new to all of us and we ask that everyone bear that in mind as we begin this process,” said Tuttle.
“Our goal remains to provide the best education we can for every child. We will continue to work with our colleagues and the administration to do just that during this remote learning period,” said Tuttle.
