A Message Regarding School Safety A Message Regarding School Safety: Dear NCS Parents: I hope this note finds you well and that you were able to enjoy time with friends and family over February Break. I am writing to you this evening as one of the 175 educators at NCS who will be caring for your child when they return to school tomorrow morning. Like all of you, I have spent time thinking and talking with others in recent days about the tragedy that occurred in Parkland, Florida, and how the events can cause us to question the safety we sometimes take for granted in our learning community. While law enforcement professionals do not recommend that school districts publically share details involved with safety practices and procedures, I wanted you to be aware of the following: •       NCS has a District Safety Team ...

Weather Related Information Weather Related Information: Dear NCS Parents and Guardians: As temperatures continue to drop, our school offices have already begun receiving phone calls from parents inquiring about a possible school closure. Because closing school is one of the most difficult decisions districts have to make, I wanted to share some additional information regarding extreme temperatures and winter weather. When is it too cold for school? As New Yorkers, we know all too well that winter temperatures may drop to below zero on a fairly regular basis. However, experts in the health field have established -25 degrees (25 degrees below zero) as the benchmark used for closing schools due to temperature and wind chill. How will I know if school is cancelled or delayed? As soon as a decision is made to close or delay ...
Thank You from the Naples Central School District Thank You from the Naples Central School District: Dear NCS Parent/Guardian: As we prepare for the start of 2018, I wanted to take a minute to thank you for your unwavering support of education here in the Naples Central School District. Earlier in the year, our Board of Education asked that you consider taking a fifteen-question survey to provide us with the valuable feedback needed for constant improvement. I am pleased to report that 118 parents and guardians completed the survey, and that the results were overwhelmingly positive. While a more detailed breakdown of the information can be found by clicking HERE , I wanted to highlight several areas of celebration as well as a couple places where we will continue to grow. Areas of Celebration: 87% of respondents feel welcome and respected when they attend meetings, ...
School Tax News School Tax News: Recently, Governor Cuomo signed an Executive Order to assist taxpayers seeking to pay property taxes prior to December 31 in order to deduct them on their 2018 federal income taxes. The Governor and his budget director have explained that the action was directed primarily at local governments which operate on a calendar year (January 1 – December 31) fiscal year. They acknowledged that facilitating pre-payment of property taxes may not be possible for most school districts.   The Naples Central School District cannot collect pre-payment of school taxes for federal tax purposes. Final payments of 2017-18 school taxes were already due. We are not able to provide estimated tax bills for 2018-19 as the school district will not adopt a budget for that year until the ...

NCS Seeking Input on Memorial Trees NCS Seeking Input on Memorial Trees: This past year, the Naples school community approved a capital project to construct a new bus loop in front of the Elementary School. Because the wellbeing of students is always at the forefront of decision-making, a special focus was placed on designing a much safer pick-up and drop-off area. However, although the architects did their very best to honor the existing bus loop footprint,  it quickly became apparent that it was simply not possible to make the area safer without removing several trees in order to modify the design of the space. While the trees have helped the school property to shine aesthetically, some of them have also served as memorials to special NCS students and staff members who have passed away over the years. Because NCS recognizes the significance of the situation, ...
Weather Related School Cancellations and Closings Weather Related School Cancellations and Closings: Closing school is one of the most difficult decisions districts have to make. While we want our students in school and ready to learn each day, the reality is that we live in upstate New York and the weather can change very quickly. With the winter months comes an increased focus on student safety, and there are days when we must cancel after school activities or even close school because of unsafe road conditions. Please know that these decisions are made very carefully, and only after consulting weather resources, local highway superintendents, our transportation supervisor, and area school administrators. In the event of a closing or a cancellation, the District will send out a Connect-Ed Parent Notification on our phone system, and we will post information on the school homepage. ...

Naples CSD Placed on College Board's AP Honor Roll Naples CSD Placed on College Board's AP Honor Roll: Dear NCS School Community:  I wanted to let you know that this past week we found out that NCS was recognized as one of twenty-six schools in New York State to be placed on the College Board's AP Honor Roll. The designation highlights "school districts committed to increasing access to AP for underrepresented students while simultaneously maintaining or increasing the percentage of students earning AP Exam scores of 3 or higher," and it is a real credit to the hard work of everyone at NCS.               However, I would like to take a quick minute to thank Mr. Clark, Mr. Freivald, Mr. Mannella, Mr. Petrie, Mr. Robison, Mrs. Weller, and Ms. Wolfe for teaching the AP courses offered at NCS. The classes are incredibly ...
Parent/Guardian Update Regarding Transportation Parent/Guardian Update Regarding Transportation: Dear NCS Parents/Guardians: We are blessed to have a Transportation Department here in Naples that is filled with dedicated and caring bus drivers. However, in recent weeks there have been days when illness and transition have forced us to find creative ways of transporting students safely to and from school, field trips, and athletic competitions. While our Director of Transportation and our NCS Mechanics have been helping out by driving each day, on a handful of occasions we have had to combine runs which has resulted in some of our students arriving home later than expected. Although we anticipate having a full staff in our Transportation Department in the very near future, there may be additional days when we have to combine a run or two. If this happens, we will do our very ...
