K-12 News & Events
Please read through the important dates and information that was shared in Ms. Glassie's CEO News & Notes email from November 16.

As we approach the holidays and are traveling and spending time indoors with people who live outside of our households, it is even more important that we take precautions and are even more mindful about the potential spread of COVID. 

Please remember to use our Health Screening Tool daily before sending your child to school. In addition to COVID, we want to limit the spread of colds and the flu at NFCS.

If your child or anyone in your family has tested positive for COVID, or if any student at NFCS was exposed to COVID outside of school, please let us know immediately by emailing COVIDResults@newfoundations.org, so that we can share guidance with you and contact trace if necessary. Please continue to communicate with us about your child's status if you gain information over the weekend or over holiday breaks, as their diagnosis may affect others in our community.
