Dear Noble Families,

We are finishing up the second week of in-person learning with our kinder, first and second graders. It has been so great to have our young Lions back in the building! In many ways it feels like the beginning of the school year, as teachers and staff are teaching classroom and building-wide routines and procedures daily. Students and staff are working hard to ensure that we have a safe, successful school experience.

We are looking forward to having our third, fourth and fifth graders join us next week. These students will return on Monday, February 1. It has been nearly 11 months since we've had K-5 students together in the school! We are excited to see more students return. We will also think of and support our Noble Lions who continue to learn virtually with the 281 Distance Learning School.

Students returning to Noble should bring their electronic device (iPad or Chromebook) and charger to school and back home each day during in-person learning.

Parent and Families Drop Off and Pick Up procedures have changed slightly. Please read the section in this newsletter addressing these procedures.

Please review the documents attached. If you have not submitted online forms, please do so by Friday, February 12.



Additional school/district notices, events, and flyers from community organizations will be added to our weekly email. Please ensure the office has your updated contact information to receive these emails and you have indicated in Parent Portal that you would like to receive emails from the school. 

We welcome parent involvement and open communication. School community is important in the development of a student’s education. We highly encourage you to consider volunteering for opportunities within our Parent Teacher Association. They are planning amazing events to help benefit our school and students. Together we can do great things. 

We look forward to an amazing year. If you have any questions, please feel free to let us know.
