Please review the following information which talks about the on-campus procedures for students/staff for the upcoming school year.
Elementary Students that arrive between 7:00am to 7:30am will be located in the cafeteria and will follow social distancing guidelines. Students will be required to wear face coverings as they wait for school to start. (Note: We normally have a small amount of students that arrive during this timeframe and will be able to have them sit at a much greater distance than the normal social distancing guidelines) Please review the NCA Face Covering Guidelines
Middle School Students that arrive between 7:00am to 7:30am will be located in the courtyard area and will need to follow social distancing guidelines. Students will be required to wear face coverings as they wait for school to start. Please review the NCA Face Covering Guidelines
All Students that arrive after 7:30am will go directly to their classroom. Students will be required to wear face coverings as they arrive on the school campus. If parents escort their child(ren) onto campus, they too will be required to wear a face covering. Please review the NCA Face Covering Guidelines
Temperature checks will be taken immediately before school starts within each classroom. Any student that has a temperature of 100.4 or higher will be taken to the school office. Parents will be notified and will need to pick up their child immediately. Parents should follow the school’s Daily Home Screening procedures on a daily basis to confirm if their child is able to attend school for on-campus learning. Please review the COVID-19 Related FAQ.
Students Showing Symptoms of Sickness while in School
A student that shows symptoms of sickness will be immediately escorted to the school office and isolated. A parent or authorized guardian will be contacted and will need to pick up the student immediately. All Parents will need to follow the Daily Home Screening procedures every morning to determine if their child is able to come to school for on-campus learning.
Face Covering Guidelines
Please review the NCA Face Covering Guidelines.
Our goal throughout the day will be to limit the use of any shared spaces. We are developing a schedule for each class that will limit the exposure to other classes. We anticipate that students will remain in their classroom for the majority of the day when school opens. We are looking at schedules that ensure students get extra time for recess and other physical activity throughout the day. Grade levels will not be grouped together for PE or recess and additional cleaning will be done in between PE and recess classes.
Each class will eat lunch in their classroom. Scheduled time slots will be allotted for each class to head to the cafeteria for any lunch purchases needed to limit exposure. Face coverings must be worn at all times while outside the classroom. Please review the NCA Face Covering Guidelines
The first week of school will be devoted to training each and every student the proper safety measures and procedures to create a safe environment for everyone on campus. Students will also be trained on the hybrid learning model so they are equipped with all the resources needed to maintain a consistent educational experience both on campus and at home.

K-1st Grade: 2:30pm
