Community Update February 3, 2023
I hope this message finds you well. We have officially reached the mid-point of the 22-23 school year. Regents and mid-terms are now behind us, and in just a few weeks we will be wrapping up our winter sports seasons. With that, I wanted to share a few important updates with the community.
In regard to our capital project progress, we hope to break ground this summer, with significant work occurring in our HS auditorium, our elementary classrooms, and our elementary playground. Improvements are also planned for the elementary gym, in addition to some minor field improvements. From a timeline perspective, we remain in a good place. Final plans are currently being reviewed at the NYS Education Department. Upon ...

I hope each of you had a wonderful holiday and that your new year is off to a good start. Our students have transitioned back into routines seamlessly over the past two weeks and there is much to look forward to as we approach the midway point in the 22-23 school year.
At NES, many students are taking part in a newly created after-school program that will provide various supports as well as enrichment opportunities; many thanks to our teachers for facilitating this program and for our Transportation Department as they work to provide transport of students from these programs. At the JH/ HS, preparations for the musical are underway, and our 7-12 students will be taking midterms at the end of the month. This is often an excellent time of year to discuss ...

Dear NCS Community:
In the weeks since Thanksgiving, it has been an incredibly busy stretch for everyone both here at school and within our community. It is hard to believe that in a matter of days, we will be celebrating another New Year. This also marks the point where we approach the mid-way point of the 22-23 school year.
Our winter sports season is well underway. Congratulations to our Modified Swim Team as they completed an undefeated season! This is a tremendous accomplishment and I look forward to the great things these athletes can accomplish going forward. Meanwhile, our Bowling and Basketball teams are now settling into league competition and we wish them the best when contests resume after the holidays.

NCS Community Update | 10-28-22
I hope this message finds you well. It seems like just yesterday that were welcoming our students back to school and now we are just a few weeks away from the conclusion of fall and the Thanksgiving Holiday. As such, the end of the first marking periods, both at NES and NJH/HS will also be upon us soon. To that end, this is an excellent time to engage in conversations with your children to have them reflect upon what is going well, what might be challenging, and goals that might make sense for the remainder of the school year, whether they be academic, social, or behavioral in nature. This information can be valuable as you prepare for your child’s parent conference later in November. Specific ...
Community Update October 7, 2022
I hope this communication finds you well. It is hard to believe that we are now well into October. Our students and staff have settled into routines which create a sense of predictability and consistency. We know that this is beneficial for our students, both academically as well as emotionally. As we move further into October, our fall sports teams will be preparing for sectional competition and we wish all of our athletes the best of luck going forward.
As you may recall last December, the NCS community approved a 16.32 million dollar referendum to support our 2023 capital project. Identified areas of focus for this project included significant renovations to our HS auditorium, classroom renovations at the Naples Elementary School, ...

Fight Flu at Home and School
Flu, or influenza, spreads easily and can make people very sick, especially kids.
You can help stop flu!
Flu symptoms include:
Fever or chills, body aches, cough, sore throat, headache, runny or stuffy nose, feeling very tired. Some people, especially children, may have stomach problems and diarrhea. Unlike a cold, the flu comes on very suddenly.
• Flu vaccine is the best protection against the flu. It is recommended every year for everyone 6 months and older.
• Get the flu vaccine for you and your children every year! It helps make flu sickness milder or prevents it all together.
• Getting the vaccine early in the fall means you and your children will be protected when flu season starts.
• Ask people close to your children, like ...

I hope this communication finds you well. It seems like just yesterday we were recognizing our class of 2022 at graduation, and yet we are now only a few weeks away from the start of the 22-23 school year. I hope that each of you and your families have been able to spend some time this summer engaging in activities that you enjoy the most; continue to do so over the remaining days of August.|
For the first time in three years, we anticipate a school re-opening that should feel “more typical” this year given we are no longer managing a myriad of Covid requirements. As was the case beginning in March, masking remains optional for our students and staff and of course ...

Three NCS Teachers Participate in NYS Master Teacher Program
The New York State Master Teacher Program’s initiative is to strengthen STEM programming across all school districts, for all of our students, to better prepare our kids for the world they will inherit. This program is predicated upon teachers learning from one another as to the most effective ways to engage students in the STEM curriculum.
Four years ago, NCS teachers Jon Betrus and Adam Robinson were selected to participate in the program and since then have completed over 50 hours of professional development through the program. Jon and Adam will complete the program this spring and should be commended for their commitment to growth mindset and life-long learning. Without a doubt, this work has and will continue to serve NCS students and staff exceptionally ...

Covid Protocols Update
** Please note this info is subject to change. Please look out for additional communication from the Superintendent. **
The New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) has indicated they will no longer be contact tracing potential COVID exposures for individuals. In consideration of this and based on Ontario County Public Health (OCPH) feedback, students who have been quarantined, due to an exposure on the bus or during breakfast or lunch, have very rarely contracted COVID from that exposure. Rather than conducting individual contact tracing, public health will work with schools to continue to do cluster contact tracing when there appears to be multiple cases within a setting or cohort (team, classroom, lunch table, etc.). A cluster outbreak and subsequent investigation will ...

Dear NCS Parents and Community:
Please find important updates below:
As the number of positive cases increases we are reminded to revisit all learning options so that we can keep student learning going under all circumstances. Often students required to isolate or quarantine feel fine and have slight or no symptoms. There is no plan to move to a remote or hybrid learning environment at this time. However, if circumstances require it, we want our students to be prepared to learn.
Therefore, we will be sending all students home with their portable learning tool and some basic instructions on Wednesday just in case some of our students have to learn remotely ...
