Spring Break Update Spring Break Update: Dear NCS Parents and Guardians:   Originally, NCS had scheduled Spring Break for the week of April 6-10. However, because of the school closure, Governor Cuomo issued an executive order clarifying that schools needed to keep providing learning opportunities every weekday through April 14. Because of this, our faculty members will continue engaging students in remote learning during this week and next.   I will make sure to pass along important updates as they become available, and would ask that you take a minute to share the Spring Break information with your son or daughter later on this evening.   Thank you for your partnership and for your support.   Matt Frahm, Superintendent  
NCS Recognized as NCS Recognized as "Top Workplace": Dear Naples Family: I wanted to let you know that yesterday it was announced that NCS had been awarded a "Top Workplace 2020" honor by The Democrat and Chronicle . The distinction was based on feedback offered by our faculty and staff back in the fall, and the questions focused on different aspects of workplace culture. At times like these, I am reminded of an article written by Jennifer Gonzalez detailing the "Marigold Effect." Gonzalez talks about companion planting, and explains that experienced gardeners often place "certain vegetables and plants near each other to improve growth for one or both plants." She goes on to say that marigolds have a special ability to help encourage, nurture, and protect surrounding plants, and that they help ...
March 30 Update from NCS March 30 Update from NCS: March 30, 2020 Dear Naples Family: On Friday, I let you know that Governor Cuomo had extended the school closure through at least April 14. While the order helps with planning, it also presents a new set of challenges when transitioning from what we hoped might be a brief pause in the academic year to a longer shutdown. As we begin our third week away from students, I wanted to take a minute to pass along a few updates that might be helpful in the days ahead. Communication: In addition to phone calls, emails, and social media posts, we have begun using Facebook Live as a way of connecting with our school community. If you are free tomorrow afternoon, I would invite you to visit our Facebook page at 3:00 p.m. for a conversation with NCS staff members focused on ...

Earlier today, Governor Cuomo announced that New York State would be keeping all schools closed through at least April 14 to prevent the spread of COVID-19. I will pass along a more detailed communication early next week, but wanted to share the most recent information.  Stay healthy, and do not hesitate to call or email if there is anything we can do to help.  Matt Frahm, Superintendent

More than anything, we are encouraging students and staff to exercise the preventative measures (washing hands regularly, using hand sanitizer, covering coughs or sneezes with tissues) outlined by the New York State Department of Health.  Additionally, we are encouraging everyone to stay home if they are feeling ill, and to contact their primary care physician if they are displaying symptoms such as a fever, cough, or difficulty breathing. ...

Because the Coronavirus is very new, health experts are carefully watching how it causes illness, and providing regular guidance to schools on how to best minimize the spread of all respiratory viruses.  With this in mind, the New York State Department of Health is recommending that individuals take the following preventative measures: Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds Use alcohol-based hand sanitizers ...
