Remote Learning

Here at NMCS, we remain committed and flexible during these uncertain times. In order to accommodate the new distance learning mandate from Gov. Gavin Newsom, we will provide distance learning and academic support and childcare from 8:00 am – 4:00 pm. In order to ensure that your children are on time for distance learning, we encourage you to schedule them no later than 9:00 am.

We have created stable cohorts with a maximum of 12 students. Each cohort will be supported by teachers who have CA teaching permits to provide academic support with distance learning. We will continue this service until Gov. Newsom has lifted Marin County from the “watch list” and allows for Marin’s schools to open for in-classroom learning.
