If you are anything like us, you have probably been checking the weather reports for graduation. After reviewing a number of sources, it looks like there is a 30% chance it could rain tomorrow morning.
While it is a difficult call, we wanted to let you know that we will be sticking with our original plan of holding an outdoor graduation ceremony on the front lawn of the High School at 11:00 a.m. We have our fingers crossed that the rains stay away, and believe that moving graduation to Sunday would bring a new set of challenges involving heat, humidity, and rescheduling graduation parties and travel for family members.
With that being said, we would encourage you to bring rain jackets or umbrellas in case of inclement weather. The ceremony should only be an ...
Dr. Black Appointed Interim Superintendent
Dear Naples School Community,
As many of you know, Dr. Frahm recently submitted his letter of resignation in order to take over as the Superintendent of the Clarence Central School District, effective August 1, 2021. To search for his replacement, the Naples Board of Education will be enlisting the assistance of an outside organization to help guide the process.

Ryan Betrus Named NYS Coach of the Year
Dear NCS Family,
I wanted to let you know that Mr. Ryan Betrus ( click here ) was recently named the 2020-2021 New York State Small School Soccer Coach of the Year by United Soccer Coaches. The honor comes after an undefeated season (12-0-0) in which the Naples Big Green defeated the Geneseo Blue Devils to bring home a Section V Class C2 Championship. The title was the first for Naples in 20 years, and its 12 th overall.
When commenting on the honor, Mr. Parzych (Naples Athletic Director) said, “Coach Betrus puts a tremendous amount of dedication and passion into the Big Green Boys Soccer Program, and he regularly produces student-athletes who are successful in the classroom and on the field.” Echoing similar sentiments, Senior Captain Ben Green added, “Coach ...

Dear NCS Families,
As we move further into May, I wanted to take a minute to pass along a handful of updates from NCS. However, if you can think of additional ways we can provide support for your son or daughter, please do not hesitate to reach out.

Update on Power Outage
I wanted to let you know that power was restored at NCS at approximately 11:35 a.m. today. During the outage, our Food Service Department and our Facilities Department made sure that our students had lunches, access to drinking water, hand sanitizer, and working bathrooms. Additionally, because the sun is shining and temperatures were in the mid-60s, there were no safety issues related to heat.
However, I did want to acknowledge that the disruption likely proved especially challenging for remote learners due to the loss of Internet. If your son or daughter is concerned that they may have missed out on important learning this morning, please have them reach out to their teachers when they have a minute.

Staff Appreciation Week
Dear NCS Families,
In the best of times, we know the work of educators is incredibly difficult. So much so that after more than 30 years in the classroom, one Stanford professor commented that teaching “is perhaps the most complex, most challenging, and most demanding, subtle, nuanced, and frightening activity that our species has ever invented—the only time a physician could possibly encounter a situation of comparable complexity would be in the emergency room of a hospital during or after a natural disaster.”
And that was before the COVID-19 pandemic.
As you well know, the past year has brought challenges never before experienced by educators. Through it all, our faculty and staff have gone above and beyond to master remote instruction, ...
