Our staff and students are off to a great start to the 2021-2022 school year and I look forward to celebrating many successes in the months ahead of us!
Each week we await updated district and county-wide COVID-19 transmission rates as we closely monitor the extent of the presence of the coronavirus in our community. We remind students, staff and community members to remain vigilant in our efforts to stop the spread of COVID-19, keep our staff, students and community safe, and keep our students in school.
I want to remind everyone that our goal is to provide in person instruction for all students this year. Per the NPSD Health and Safety Plan
, if our transmission rates increase to the high level of transmission for two consecutive weeks, we would allow any student the option to learn from home during the period of high level of transmission and then return to in person instruction when rates decrease again. But schools and classrooms would remain open for those students who want to remain in school.
As your superintendent, I cannot stress enough the importance of instructional consistency, in-person education and keeping everyone in school. I love seeing so many students in our buildings this year, and everyone here at NPSD is doing everything we can to keep it that way.
