Parent Preference Survey Reminder Parent Preference Survey Reminder: Dear NCS Parents: Last week, I shared a link to our reopening plan and our hopes of providing both a 100% in-person learning option, as well as a 100% remote learning option, for families this fall. However, I also indicated that in order to ensure safe and productive classroom spaces, we would need to know parent preferences as quickly as possible. Over the past week, more than 60% of parents have responded to the survey. However, it is critical that we have accurate information from 100% of our families by the end of the day tomorrow. If you have not yet had a chance to share your preferences on reopening, I would ask that you fill out a separate form for each of your children by clicking here . If we have not heard from folks by Monday, we will begin reaching out ...
Information on School Reopening Information on School Reopening: Dear Big Green Families: Over the past two weeks, students, parents, faculty, and staff have been working hard on creating a school reopening plan for NCS. While the process has been challenging, it has also been an opportunity to see how much individuals care about school safety, connection, and learning in our corner of the world. For anyone who is interested, the complete NCS Reopening Plan can be accessed by clicking on this link . However, I have tried to provide key components of our proposal below, and I would invite you to attend one of our virtual sessions if you have questions or would like additional information.  Prioritizing Parent Preference: Throughout the planning process, it has been clear that parents are in very different places when it comes to ...
Reopening School Parent Survey Reopening School Parent Survey: Dear NCS Parents: On Thursday, the State Education Department (SED) released a comprehensive set of guidelines  related to reopening schools in the fall. Over the next two weeks, districts across New York State will be working on written plans that must be submitted by July 31. Although there are many mandatory elements of reopening, the planning process also gives schools the ability to make certain decisions ...
Parent Input Sought in Reopening Parent Input Sought in Reopening: Dear NCS Parents and Guardians: Earlier today, the State Education Department (SED) presented a framework of guidance for school reopening in the fall. In addition, it also indicated that on Wednesday, July 15, it would be providing even more detail to assist schools in developing and submitting plans by July 31. To help with planning here in Naples, we will be sending out a detailed parent survey in the days ahead. The questions will be closely aligned with the guidance from SED, and we would encourage you to pass along honest feedback on how to make learning safe and engaging here at NCS. Along with the survey, we will also be hosting a series of Zoom as well as In Person listening sessions for parents next week. If you are interested in participating, I would ask that you ...
July 9 Update July 9 Update: Dear NCS Family:   As you may be aware, yesterday Governor Cuomo announced that he would be providing school districts with specific guidance related to reopening on July 13, and requiring them to submit specific plans by July 31. Additionally, he indicated that a final decision would be made during the first week in August as to whether schools would be able to open for in person instruction in September.   Like all schools in our region, we have spent time in recent weeks reviewing reopening documents from other states as well as a variety of professional organizations. Although the information has been incomplete, it has helped us begin to brainstorm potential needs for instructional models involving: Remote Learning In Person Learning Hybrid Learning (Mix ...
Thank You from NCS Thank You from NCS: Dear Big Green Parents and Guardians: With the long weekend quickly approaching, I wanted to take a minute to say thank you for all of your support over the past few months. From helping to build a remote learning system, to passing the 2020-2021 school budget, to celebrating the Class of 2020, you have gone above and beyond in your care of our NCS family. As we turn the page from one school year to the next, please know that we are carefully following all available information regarding reopening in the fall. At this point, however, we are waiting for the Governor as well as the State Education Department to release their guidelines before putting together any final plans. Please rest assured that we will be in touch often to communicate details involving September, and that we ...

Because the forecast for tomorrow includes rain, wind, and a chance of thunderstorms, we will be moving graduation to 1:00 p.m. on Sunday afternoon. I know that this change may present an inconvenience for certain individuals, and appreciate your understanding and flexibility as we prepare to celebrate a great group of students.

Senior Earns Seal of Biliteracy Award Senior Earns Seal of Biliteracy Award: The Naples Central School District is proud to announce that Gianna Vest has earned the prestigious Seal of Biliteracy award. The distinction originated in California in 2012 and was adopted by the New York State Department of Education and Board of Regents in 2016. Recognizing the value of diversity and world languages in a globally connected world, the distinction can be earned by students who demonstrate excellence in multiple languages. Acknowledging the high levels of achievement required in reading, writing, listening, and speaking, Department Chair Analisa Chapman commented that “NCS would like to commend Gianna for all of the hard work, energy, and passion she put into earning the award.” Echoing the sentiment, Principal Green went on to say that the opportunity “would ...

Summer Meal Information Summer Meal Information: Dear NCS Families: With the end of the school year quickly approaching, I wanted to provide a brief update regarding our breakfast and lunch program. For the next two weeks, we will continue delivering meals to families on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday mornings at our regular times.  However, from Monday, June 29-Thursday, August 20, we will be transitioning to a Summer Meals Program. While most of the details will remain the same, there will be two changes. First, during that period we will be dropping off breakfast and lunch packages on Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday mornings between 8:00 a.m.-10:00 a.m. Second, we will be delivering six meals a week for students instead of five.  If you are currently receiving breakfast and lunch packages, you do not need to do ...
June 8 Update from NCS June 8 Update from NCS: Dear NCS Family: I hope that you were able to enjoy the sunshine this past weekend, and wanted to take a minute to pass along a handful of recent updates. Because we know that information related to COVID-19 continues to evolve by the day, the following reflects a number of changes related to recent Executive Orders issued by Governor Cuomo.   Graduation Ceremony: Yesterday, it was announced that the State would allow outdoor graduation ceremonies of up to 150 beginning Saturday, June 26. This is good news for NCS, and Mrs. Green has already communicated more specific information to the Class of 2020 and their parents/guardians.  Although our ceremony at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, June 27 will be limited in numbers and involve social distancing protocols, it will give ...
May 22 Update May 22 Update: Dear NCS Family: As we prepare to begin Memorial Day Weekend, I wanted to pass along a number of updates involving the last day of the year, summer school, meals on Monday, and the annual budget vote. Last Day of the School Year After reviewing our school calendar as well as the most recent guidance from New York State, the last day of the school year will be Tuesday, June 16 for NCS students. Our Board of Education will be amending the school calendar to reflect the changes, and we do not anticipate any additional modifications unless there is updated information from the Governor or the State Education Department. Summer School On Thursday, Governor Cuomo announced that all in-person summer school experiences would be cancelled this year. However, for NCS High ...
May 13 Update May 13 Update: Dear NCS Family: As we move further into May, I wanted to take a minute to pass along a handful of updates. However, because New York State’s plan for reopening will be a fluid process, there are a number of questions we will not be able to answer definitively until a bit later on this spring.   Memorial Day and the End of the 2020 School Year: Similar to our plans for Spring Break, we will continue providing students with remote learning experiences on Friday, May 22. However, because Memorial Day is a Federal Holiday, there will be no scheduled instructional activities on Monday, May 25. Additionally, because we did not have a Spring Break, we believe the end of the school year might be earlier than was previously indicated on our calendar. While we estimate that ...

Educator Appreciation Week (May 4-8) Educator Appreciation Week (May 4-8): Dear Naples Parents and Guardians: When it comes to academic achievement, we all know that it is important to have skilled educators working with students. However, because there are so many different factors influencing learning, you might wonder—how much of a difference do teachers actually matter? Well, as it turns out, quite a bit. After studying data related to student performance, the researcher and policy expert Eric Hanushek found that the difference between having an above-average and a below-average teacher can translate into a full grade level of achievement in a single year. That is a staggering difference, and it is a powerful reminder of how lucky we are to have 170 world-class educators working at NCS. More importantly, however, is the impact that talented ...
May 1 Update May 1 Update: Dear Naples Parents and Guardians: Earlier today, Governor Cuomo announced that schools would be closed for the remainder of the school year. While we do not expect additional guidance about summer programs until later on in May, we now know that distance learning will continue in the weeks ahead. To continue improving how we provide academic instruction as well as a sense of connection for our students, we wanted to share two resources we have recently developed at NCS. First, to help streamline and centralize communication for our High School families, we have put together a Distance Learning Portal which can be accessed by visiting our homepage . Second, our staff members have begun reaching out to families in order to provide targeted online tutoring and academic coaching. ...

Prom 2020 Update Prom 2020 Update: At Naples CSD, we realize COVID-19 has had a big impact on our students and their families in many ways over the last five weeks. This is especially true for our seniors and upperclassmen. On Saturday, May 2nd, students in grades 10-12 were looking forward to celebrating this year’s prom at Hunt Hollow Ski Club. Annually, this event is organized by, and is a fundraiser for, the junior class. Just as the prom planning committee was finalizing plans in March for the event, school was canceled due to Governor Cuomo’s mandate to stay-at-home. As we near the date when prom was supposed to be held, it is important for us to provide more information about the event. Recently, high school principal, Nicole Green, and I talked about the event. At this point, the junior prom ...
