Public Input on SRO Public Input on SRO: Dear NCS Parents and Staff Members: For the past few years, the District has contracted with the Ontario County Sheriff’s Office in order to provide a School Resource Officer (SRO) at NCS. During that period of time, Deputy Rick Jaus has become a critical member of the Naples family, and someone who helps make our school a safe space to teach and learn. Recently, New York State passed a law requiring school districts that contract with law enforcement agencies to hold public hearings seeking input regarding the agreements. If you are interested in sharing your thoughts related to the role of the SRO in the Naples Central School District, we would invite you to attend our Board of Education meeting at 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, August 21, 2019 in the High School Cafeteria. Sincerely, ...

NCS Proud to Offer Safe School Helpline NCS Proud to Offer Safe School Helpline: Dear Parents and Guardians: At NCS, we are committed to doing all we can to ensure that our school remains a safe and welcoming space for students. Because safety is ultimately our collective responsibiilty as a school family, we talk with our students about the need to say something if they notice anything that appears to be troubling.  However, we all know that there can be times when a student or a parent may want to provide information to someone at school, but hesitate because they do not want to make their identity known. To encourage open and confidential communication with our District, NCS recently made the decision to partner with Safe School Helpline ® . The organization offers a unique, automated telephone service that allows callers the ability to report ...

Happy New Year from NCS Happy New Year from NCS: Dear NCS Parents and Guardians: As we age, most of us experience the feeling that time seems to move by faster and faster each year. When asked to explain this phenomenon, psychologists have pointed out that when we are young, we regularly experience first-time events that tend to leave lasting impressions. With the passage of time, however, familiar happenings require less mental energy to process, and the years often appear to pass by more quickly the older we get. While this sensation might be slightly disconcerting for many of us, it is also an important reminder that the coming year will be filled with many “firsts” for our students here at NCS. First days of school, and first athletic competitions. First school dances, and first experiences playing musical instruments. ...
Message Regarding Social Media Safety Message Regarding Social Media Safety: Dear NCS Parents and Guardians: We recently learned that several students in surrounding school districts had been victimized by an online predator. This person(s) created numerous social media accounts, friended students, and proceeded to obtain very personal and private images and information about the individuals. The predator is now using this information to “blackmail” the students to provide additional pictures and information with the threat of sharing what has already been provided on social media sites and other public entities. After speaking with the school superintendents of these local districts, it is my understanding that law enforcement has been involved and is investigating all leads. Because we want our students to be safe and to thrive in a world filled ...
