Dear NSS Families,
Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year. We are excited to have all of our students and families back to our building. It has been a busy summer getting ready for the return of our students. The teachers and staff are looking forward to a great school year.
Class lists are being released this afternoon after 3:30pm. We are continuing to ensure a welcoming and safe environment at NSS while working to comply with all state and district health and safety protocols that exist and are updated. The elementary team are currently working together with central office staff to review the practices for this Friday’s student orientation visit. Changes may be made to comply with the latest health/safety regulations and to ensure consistency at all elementary schools. We will blast all updates on IC as we receive them. Due to increased enrollment we now have four sections of both Kindergarten and Grade 2. We experienced several staffing changes and additions. The following should be of help to you as you prepare for next week. More information will follow on our school website as it is received and/or updated.
We will share more information as it becomes available to us. Please enjoy the next few days of summer vacation knowing that our staff will be prepared to keep your children happy, safe, and engaged in learning and growing together. We thank you for being our partners as we work together to take care of our students and one another.
