NB's Strategic Plan for a Safe and Successful School Year

September 25, 2020

Superintendent’s Message To NB Parents:

As the second full week of 100% remote instruction comes to a close, I am pleased to

report that the programs are progressing nicely. I am very proud of our NB faculty for all the hard work they have done to make the remote delivery of instruction a positive experience for our students and our parents. We all recognize the significant challenges and acknowledge that continued success depends on teamwork. Parents, students, teachers, administrators, and support staff have all joined together to make this school year a success.

It’s safe to say that this will be a school year like none other. We have welcomed back our fall sports teams and our marching band. Students have been participating in these outdoor activities with much success. In fact, our teams will be welcoming visiting teams to campus in the next few days. The coaches and the students have been working tirelessly to keep everyone safe. Again, parental support has been fantastic, and by working together, we’re providing positive opportunities for our students.

On Monday, September 28th we welcome our first cohort of students back to campus for in-person instruction. Both principals have stayed in touch with parents via principal bulletins and both have outlined the schedule and the protocols in place to help make this return safe and successful. We are excited to move to our next phase of NB’s Plan for a Safe and Successful School Year and to be successful, we all must be vigilant in adhering to the CDC guidelines. Let’s stay safe and healthy so that we can keep our school open to our students for in-person instruction.

I appreciate your understanding and flexibility as we continue to work to provide a safe learning environment for our students, faculty, and staff. It is clear that this year continues to demand that we remain agile and willing to adjust to ever-changing circumstances.
