Open House Follow Up and Next Steps

NMSA Parents/Guardians:

We sincerely apologize!  We hosted our first virtual Open House at Neal Academy earlier this week.  This required us to use a different digital tool to connect with you (Zoom) because the tool we use to connect with your child during class every day (Google Meet) can’t accommodate the large number of families we hoped would login.   

There was obviously a major technical issue using this different digital tool that prevented you from logging in to this event from the laptop we issued to your child.  Our administrative team planned carefully and were assured that there would be no access restrictions, but we were wrong.  These technical difficulties were beyond our control and we are extremely disappointed as this is not the excellence that we strive for at Neal.

The Neal Academy leadership team is already working with district administrators to make sure that this does not happen again.  We are grateful to all who were able to get access to the meeting and are impressed by the large number of students and families who repeatedly tried to login.  We will get the information shared at our Open House posted on our school website ( as soon as possible.

Thanks again for your presence and/or understanding tonight.  Your support is invaluable.  Pleasee, contact the school main office (847-689-6313) with any questions or concerns.

Querido Padre/ Guardián:

Sinceramente nos disculpamos,organizamos nuestra primera jornada de (Open House) de la Academia de NEAL esta semana. Esto requirió que usáramos otro programa para conectarnos con usted (zoom) el programa que usamos para comunicarnos con su hijo/ja durante clases (google meet) no funciona con una cantidad grande de familias que esperábamos que se conectaran.

Obviamente hubo un mayor problema técnico usando este programa que se opuso a que nuestras familias se conectarán desde la computadora portátil que se le dio a su estudiante. Nuestro equipo de administración planeó cuidadosamente este evento y nos aseguraron que no habrían problemas, pero estaban mal. Estas dificultades técnicas stan fuera de  nuestro control y estamos muy decepcionados a lo que no de muestra lo mucho que nos esforzamos en la academia de NEAL.

El equipo de la Academia de NEAL esta trabajando con el departamento del distrito para que esto asegurar que esto no pase otra vez. Estamos agradecidos a todos ustedes que pudieron y/o tuvieron acceso a la junta y estoy muy impresionado al numero grande de las familias que repetidamente trataron de conectarse. La información de esa noche de la jornada sera compartida en la pagina del sitio web ( lo mas pronto posible.

De nuevamente Gracias por su presencia y/o con procesión esta noche. Su apoyo es apreciado.Por favor contacte la oficina principal de la escuela al numero (847-689-6313) con preguntas o cual quier inquietud.
