Back to School 2020-2021

Welcome to Necedah Elementary and N-Vision Learning Center!

K-5 Student First Day of School is Tuesday, Sept. 1 4K Student First Day of School is Wednesday, Sept. 2

Necedah Elementary and N-Vision Learning Center Students will be welcomed back to campus this week! Students in Kindergarten through 5th grade will begin school on Tuesday, September 1st. 4-year-old Kindergarten Students will begin on Wednesday, September 2nd, 2020. School begins promptly at 8:00 AM with free breakfast served in the classroom. School concludes at 3:05 pm. In order to keep students from congregating and mixing across co-hort groups, students will report directly to their classrooms upon arrival to school. Doors to the school will be locked until 7:50 AM. Buses will release students at 7:50 AM. If you drive your student to school, please plan to drop-off between 7:50 and 7:55 AM. Due to COVID-19 protocol, only students and employees are allowed in the classroom wings. Parents will not be allowed to escort their students to their classroom. You may drop them at the curb or park and walk them to their respective entry door. If you choose to leave your car, you must wear a face covering and maintain a 6-foot social distance from other students and parents. Parents who have business in the building should report to the office for sign in. Face coverings and social distancing are required both inside and outside on school grounds. Read more...

Family Daily Screening for COVID-19

Families are asked to conduct a home screening for COVID-19 before sending their child to school each day. Parents should take each child's temperature each morning. Do not send your child to school if they have a temperature of over 100 degrees Farenheit. Read More...

Homeroom Co-horts Are Our "School Families"

We recognized that maintaining a 6-foot social distance all day long is not conducive to learning in an elementary setting. Therefore, we have selected the Homeroom Co-hort model for delivering instruction at the elementary level. Students will be in a Homeroom Co-hort or "School Family" of 8-13 students. Everyone will wear a face covering except while eating or during an outside mask break. These students will spend the day together with their teacher. They will learn together, eat breakfast and lunch in their classroom together, play together at recess, and go to their special class together each day. Instead of rotating to a different special every day, students will have Art for one week, Music for two weeks and Physical Education for three-weeks in a six-week cycle. This will allow our specialists to clean surfaces between groups and utilize equipment unique to the group. Instructional Strategists and Paraprofessionals will be assigned to specific grade-levels. These schedule and procedure changes will reduce the number of people each employee and student comes in contact with each day, reducing the opportunity to spread illnesses and increasing the opportunity to stay at school.

Face Coverings Allow Us to be Together at School

All persons on school grounds and in the school building will be required to wear a face covering. This will be especially important in our elementary building where younger children may be closer than six feet from their classmates and teachers during certain portions of instruction or play. Students will be provided with two face masks and a windowed mask to use when teachers or classmates need to see them speak. Students will not wear their face mask while eating breakfast or lunch, or during their mask break at the end of recesses. Students will be provided with a lanyard that holds a mesh zippered pouch that students will use to store their face mask when not in use. The elementary will wash masks each day. Students may wear their school mask home and back to school on the bus, if needed. They will receive a fresh mask upon arrival. Students are welcome to wear their own face covering to and from school and even during the school day. Face coverings left at school will be included in the classroom laundry.

New Bolder Blacktop for Recess Fun!

Thank you to Mrs. Brown for designing additional play areas and activities on our blacktop play area. Also thank you to her paint crew of Mrs. Lessard, Mrs. Lowery, and Mrs. Rattunde! Students will go to recess four homeroom co-horts at a time. Co-horts will be assigned one of four sectors in which to play. They will each have one recess on the blacktop play space and one recess on the playground equipment play space each day. Every other day, they will rotate between the two sectors at each play space. Mrs. Brown has researched new games that are low touch or need little equipment that can be easily sanitized. Students will get a 5 minute cool down at the end of recess so they can socially distance and take a mask break. We are looking forward to recess fun!

Breakfast, Lunch, Snack, Water Bottles, and Birthday Treats...Oh My!

Students will be eating breakfast and lunch in their classrooms this year. Breakfast is free to all students in Necedah Elementary and N-Vision Learning Center. Water fountains will be turned off to reduce possible spread of germs. Please send a full water bottle with your student each day. We do have touchless waterbottle fillers that can be used for refills. Our PATT (Parents and Teachers Together) Team will be providing a snack for the students. At this time, we are unable to accept outside food to be served to others in the classrooms. We have arranged for families to be able to order a treat from our school nutrition service to be delivered to the classroom for special occasions such as birthdays. An order form will be shared on ClassDojo.
