School Reopening 2020-2021

NHCS is operating under Plan B AA/BB schedule in all grades. Pre-K through grade 5 will transition to Plan A on Monday, March 8, 2021. Grades 6-12 will continue to operate under Plan B AA/BB schedule. 
Under Plan A, all elementary students will have the option to choose full-time in-person learning or full-time remote learning. Schools will be contacting parents to verify the attendance option they are choosing for their student.
NHCS families should verify PowerSchool contact information is current to receive Connect 5 phone, email, and text notifications from their schools and the district.

See the NHCS website for more information about school reopening.
School Arrival Traffic Patterns : All students will enter through the front door, maintaining 6 feet from each other.  Traffic patterns will be the same as usual.

School Arrival Health Screening Procedures: Students' temperatures will be checked as they exit their vehicle and they will be asked screener questions.  Students riding the bus will have their temperature checked and screener questions asked as they enter the building.
Building Social Distancing Features/Expectations: There are arrows on the floor of the school guiding movement throughout the building, as well as markers to keep 6 foot distance from others.  The watering fountains will not be used and students will use the bathroom one at a time.  In the classroom, desks are placed six feet apart.
Procedures When a Student Becomes Ill at School: If students show symptoms, they will be isolated in a room dedicated for that purpose until they can be picked up from school.  The nurse assigned to our school will follow up with families as to when the student can return.
Mask Guidance:  Staff and students will wear masks throughout the day.  Masks should be school appropriate and students will be allowed mask breaks at their seats if 6 feet away from others when given permission.  While doing rigorous exercise outside, students can take their masks off.
