Reopening Schools 2020-2021

NHCS is open under Plan C through the first grading period and will transition to Plan B  under the AA/BB model on October 12th.
Beginning on Monday, October 12 students in groups A and B will rotate in-person and remote attendance, with students in Group A attending on Monday and Tuesday and students in Group B attending on Thursday and Friday. Wednesday will be a remote learning day for all students. Group assignments will be communicated at the school level. Families who still want a full remote option will be able to participate in a 100% remote learning option.

Students with an Individualized Education Plan or IEP, and English language learner students, identified by our ESL programs as newcomers with two years or less in the US, will be invited to attend school for face to face instruction on days A and B, attending school, every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. Wednesday will be a day of remote learning for all students. 
Under Plan B, AA/BB schedule, there is no change to instruction for students enrolled in Virtual Academy. Families wanting to transition out of the Virtual Academy can do so at the end of the nine-week grading period for elementary and middle school students and at the end of the semester for high school students. 
School Arrival Traffic Patterns
  • Students who arrive between 8:45 and 9:30, enter the school building through the cafeteria doors.  Students who arrive after 9:30 will enter through the front office.
School Arrival Health Screening Procedures
  • Students will have their temperature taken and answer a set of screening questions prior to entering the school building. Once students enter the building they will hand in their cell phone, get wanded and receive their breakfast before heading to their homeroom classroom.
Transportation - Student Groupings
  • More information will be posted as soon as it becomes available.
Building Social Distancing Features/Expectation
  • Students will eat breakfast and lunch in the classrooms. During transitions between classes students will travel in a single direction in the hallway maintaining the 6 foot social distancing rule. While teachers are being given the opportunity to clean between classes, students will be given the opportunity to use the restroom (one at a time). Non-instructional staff will monitor students in the hallway. Students will be allowed to have a 10 - 15 minute outside break during the day. Certain areas will be designated as "mask off " areas as long as they maintain 6 feet social distancing expectations. 
Procedures When a Student Becomes Ill at School 
  • When a student becomes ill at school, the teacher will call the front office. The designated Covid 19 person will be contacted. The designated person will retrieve the student and escort them to the Covid 19 seclusion room (109). The parent will be called to come pick up the student.
Mask Guidance
  • Students and staff keep on their mask at all times except when they are in a "mask off" area outside, or they are eating or drinking in the classroom while maintaining their 6 feet social distancing.
