COVID Case at NCS COVID Case at NCS Dear NCS Families, Faculty, and Staff, Earlier today, we were notified by the Ontario County Department of Health that one High School student and one student attending a program in another district tested positive for COVID-19. However, because neither of them attended classes at NCS or participated in any athletic or extracurricular activities during their infectious periods, we will continue with our normal school schedule and operations at this point in time. Additionally, I also wanted to share that a “COVID-19 Tracker” ( click here ) has been posted to the homepage of our website under the “News & Updates” section. Each time we learn of a positive case involving students or staff members, the webpage will be updated immediately. However, beginning ...
COVID Case at NCS COVID Case at NCS Dear NCS Families, Faculty, and Staff, Earlier today, the Naples Central School District was notified that a student in the Elementary School had tested positive for COVID-19. The student was last in school on Wednesday, January 13, and the individual is currently in isolation in alignment with Department of Health (DOH) guidelines. After examining staff interviews, class rosters, and seating charts, we believe the DOH will be placing 6 students and 2 staff members in quarantine as a preventative measure. Additionally, to err on the side of caution, we will be transitioning the classroom cohort (not the grade level) to remote learning until Monday, January 25. All students impacted by the situation will be receiving a personal phone call from NCS with additional information. However, ...
COVID Case at NCS COVID Case at NCS Dear NCS Families, Faculty, and Staff, Earlier today, the Naples Central School District was notified by the Ontario County Department of Health (DOH) that a staff member working in the High School had tested positive for COVID-19. The staff member was last at work on Friday, January 8, and the individual is currently in isolation in alignment with DOH guidelines. After completing the contact tracing process, the DOH made the decision to quarantine four additional staff members working in the High School out of an abundance of caution. Finally, as rates continue to rise in our community, I want to try to find a balance between under and over-communicating information on COVID-19 cases. Beginning next week, we will have a spot on the website that will be updated as soon as we ...

However, if you can think of additional ways we can provide support for your son or daughter, please do not hesitate to reach out. Caring for Students: Like many of you, I had a tough time falling asleep last night after the events that transpired in our nation’s capital. Regardless of political belief, our community is comprised of individuals who care deeply for our country, and the scenes coming in from Washington, DC were difficult to watch. It may be helpful for you to talk with your child if they have questions about these events or if they seem worried or concerned. Please know, however, that today we are focused on creating safe and ...

Naples 2020 Holiday Concert Naples 2020 Holiday Concert Season’s greetings from the Naples Music Department!   It has certainly been a challenging year for the arts as we have been reinventing making music in schools during a pandemic.   In our bands, students evolved from not playing as a group to 12 feet apart outside. Finally just before Thanksgiving break we made it inside-in the pool of all places! The acoustics are better than one would ever expect! In chorus we went from not being able to sing at all, to singing with masks on 12 feet apart, to playing the hand bells and having students submit recordings from home.  Despite all of these challenges we are so proud of the resilience and dedication our student musicians have shown through this pandemic.  Though we are unable to gather ...
"Presumptive Positive" COVID Case Dear NCS Families, Faculty, and Staff: This afternoon, the Naples Central School District was notified by the Ontario County Department of Health (DOH) that a staff member in the High School had been identified as a “presumptive positive” case for COVID-19. The employee was last in school on Wednesday, December 9, and the individual is currently in isolation in alignment with DOH guidelines. Although the staff member did not technically test positive for COVID-19, the DOH advised that we err on the side of caution by completing the contact tracing process. After examining staff interviews, class rosters, and seating charts, the DOH determined that there was not a need for any other individuals to be placed under quarantine.

Weather Related School Cancellations and Closings Weather Related School Cancellations and Closings Dear NCS Families and Staff: As temperatures drop and snow begins to fly, I have had a number of people reach out with questions related to winter weather. Because there may be times in the coming months when we need to cancel or delay school because of unsafe road conditions, I wanted to pass along the following information. How do you decide whether to cancel or delay school? Closing school is one of the most difficult decisions districts have to make. While we want our students in school each day, the reality is that we live in upstate New York and the weather can change very quickly. Decisions to cancel or delay school are made very carefully, and only after consulting weather resources, local highway superintendents, our transportation supervisor, and area school administrators. ...

December 10 Parent Communication December 10 Parent Communication Dear NCS Families and Staff: Let me begin by saying thank you for supporting our asynchronous learning day yesterday. It gave our faculty and staff an important opportunity to plan together, and provided our students with a chance to experience the independence often needed for remote learning. We will try to limit the use of asynchronous days in the future, but I want to stress how valuable they can be as we try to balance the complex needs associated with in-person, remote, and hybrid learning. Masks, Masks, Masks: When we talk with folks at the Department of Health, they continue to emphasize the importance of mask wearing. In addition to keeping people safe, the practice also helps to limit the number of individuals needing to be quarantined when there is an exposure. ...
