NPS Reopen Plan

NPS Reopen Plan
Posted on 07/28/2020

Parents and Guardians,

I want to take this opportunity to thank so many of you for participating in our Task Force work, or attending the Board meeting earlier this week and posing so many important questions.  
As promised at the Board of Education meeting, I am providing the following linked information to you:

      1.  Executive Summary (start here of a summary of the Reopen Plan)

      2.  NPS Fall Reopen Plan (full detailed Reopen Plan)

      3.  Revised 2020-21 School Calendar (please review, the 1st day of school is now August 31st)

      4.  CDC Guidelines to assist parents with decision making about school this fall

      5.  Video to help parents work with their young children about mask wearing

I have asked all building principals to schedule online forums so that parents/guardians can hear how the Reopen Plan will look at their child’s school. These will be scheduled prior to the second week of August and will be recorded for those who are unable to attend. After those meetings have occurred, I will be sending out a final survey to allow you to articulate your decision about your child’s return to school  in the fall as well as busing, and lunch service questions. Please note that if we don’t hear from you by Friday, August 14, we will assume your child will be returning to in person school on August 31, 2020. While parents have the right to change their mind about the model they are choosing, it will take school personnel up to one week to make changes to your child’s schedule.

In order for principals to be prepared for the forums, we are kindly asking that you jot down your questions on the forms linked below. If you list your email address, we may be able to answer your questions prior to the forum.

Once again, thank you for your patience as we work diligently to create a safe environment for your children this Fall.

Be Well,

Maureen Brummett, Ed.D
Superintendent of Schools
