Support During School Closure

March 16, 2020

Dear Naples Family:

Earlier today, I called to let you know that school had been cancelled for students beginning on Tuesday, March 17 through our originally scheduled Spring Break. Because we are committed to providing the connection and care our students will need in the weeks ahead, I wanted to pass along important information regarding food, learning, health, and communication.

Food Service:

During the mandatory closure, NCS will be providing free breakfast and lunch packages to all interested District residents ages 18 and under. Beginning on Wednesday, March 18, our Transportation Department will begin delivering food at 8:15 a.m. each weekday to all households that have requested meals. (Call 585-374-7950 with any questions.)

***To request daily meal deliveries, please fill out this brief form (click HERE).***

Continuity of Learning:

While it is difficult to replicate the experiences our students receive each day with online or home-based activities, our faculty and staff have put together valuable learning materials for all of our students. They will be available for parent pick-up during the following times, and we are asking our families to provide the daily academic support and structure our students will need until school is back in session.

Grades UPK-6 (Elementary School Cafeteria)
  • 4:00 p.m.-7:00 p.m. on Monday, March 16, 2020
  • 8:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m. on Tuesday, March 17, 2020
 Grades 7-12 (High School Cafeteria)
  • 4:00 p.m.-7:00 p.m. on Monday, March 16, 2020
  • 8:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m. on Tuesday, March 17, 2020
Healthy Reminders:

Without school each day, it is understandable that many students will be asking to schedule social activities such as playdates and sleepovers. Because the wellbeing of our students is important to us all, we are asking that families consider the advice of public health officials by supporting social distancing, limited interactions, regular hand washing, etc. Additionally, if a student is struggling with any sort of issue related to health or safety, we would encourage them to access our Safe School Hotline by dialing 1-800-4-1-VOICE, ext. 359 (418-6423) or texting 66746 and then typing TIPS.


Finally, in the weeks to come, we will be sending out updates and reminders as new information becomes available. While we will communicate through phone calls, emails, social media, and our website, we would also encourage you to reach out if you have any questions or concerns.

Mr. Rogers, the American TV personality, once remarked: “When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, ‘Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.’” More than ever, the news is filled with stories that are confusing and unsettling for us all. Please know that we miss your sons and daughters already, and that we stand willing to do whatever we can to help.

Talk to you soon.

Matt Frahm, Superintendent
