  • Nurse's Note

    Now that we are all back in school full time, it is even more important to keep your children home if they are sick.

    NPS still encourages testing after travel even though the state has lifted the travel restrictions. We all want everyone to stay in school for the rest of the year and to do that we need to continue to be safe, including wearing masks, hand washing, not traveling, and testing when we are sick.

    If your child will be missing more than 3 consecutive days of school, please call the front office 508-228-7285 x2140 (English) or 2187 (Spanish).

    As we get closer to the end of the school year, please continue to remember to screen your child daily for symptoms of COVID. If your child is exhibiting any symptoms of COVID or has been tested due to an exposure or symptoms, please keep them home. Children who are awaiting test results should remain home until results are in. If your child is positive they will need to stay home, they can return with a negative test result. Staying home when we are possibly ill, hand washing and wearing masks are our best defense and will keep our school safe. Thank you for doing your part to keep the schools open.

    As we head into summer and spend more time outside, be sure to remember sun protection and tick checks are very important. The sun damage done at a young age can cause skin cancer as adults. Please be mindful of time outdoors and wear sun protection either clothing or sun block. Tick checks are also important as we spend more time outdoors. Remember to make sure to check for ticks every day and especially after spending time in the woods or tall grass.

  • Attendance While Remote Learning

    Attendance in this virtual setting is also required. Students must be online to count as virtually present. Students must also be attending their small group classes. These represent the required services for your child to support their learning.

    The online times are when teachers are teaching students. They are sharing the standards required for students at each grade level. This online time is often interactive with teachers asking students to share, answer questions, and talk to their classmates potentially.

    Should you have any challenges or difficulties please be sure to reach out to your child's teacher.
