School Reopening 2020-2021
NHCS is operating under Plan B AA/BB schedule in all grades. Pre-K through grade 5 will transition to Plan A on Monday, March 8, 2021. Grades 6-12 will continue to operate under Plan B AA/BB schedule.
Under Plan A, all elementary students will have the option to choose full-time in-person learning or full-time remote learning. Schools will be contacting parents to verify the attendance option they are choosing for their student.
NHCS families should verify PowerSchool contact information is current to receive Connect 5 phone, email, and text notifications from their schools and the district.
Building Social Distancing Features/Expectations
Under Plan B all students must adhere to the 3 W’s. This includes social distancing, wearing a cloth face covering, and washing their hands regularly. To assist your student in this transition we encourage you to begin preparing by sharing and practicing these expectations with them. We have included some resources below to assist you in this process.
Mask Presentation For Students
In addition, school may also “look” differently than what students have become accustomed to.
- New traffic patterns in the hallways
- Symptom screenings upon entry
- No backdoor or library pick up
- Staff wearing face coverings
- Smaller class sizes
- Keeping materials to self
- Not touching others belongings
- Remaining 6ft from others

School Arrival and Health Screening Procedures
We ask all parents/guardians to please note the following before school: Students should have their temperature taken daily before leaving for school. Students should not attend school if they have a fever.
Morning Drop Off-
School Buses: Families will complete and submit an attestation form that indicates that they will take their child’s temperature daily and that the child is symptom free. We recommend that a responsible adult or older sibling wait with elementary-age children at the bus stop. All bus riders will be required to wear a cloth face covering.
Car Riders: All car riders will be screened in their vehicles daily before exiting their car. We ask that students sit on the passenger side of the vehicle to assist with screening.
Bike Riders/Walkers: Bike riders and walkers will be screened upon their arrival on campus daily.
Staff will be escorting students to the following pick up locations at 2:30 pm daily:
- Bus Pick Up
- Car Pick Up- We ask that you remain in your car and follow the traffic patterns in place.
- Van Pick Up
*We will not be offering backdoor pick up or library pick up under Plan A. Students who walk or bike to school will be escorted to the front bike racks for dismissal. Families that are meeting their walker or biker will be asked to wait at a designated location near the secondary crosswalk. We ask families to practice social distancing at all times on campus including at pick up.
