AM/PM Session Assignments & Teacher Assignment
For students attending a half-day program, communication is being emailed on Friday, July 30th to parents/guardians to confirm the students' assigned AM/PM session.
Teacher assignments for all EEC students will be emailed on Friday, August 13th.
Masks & Children
In accordance with guidance from the NKCS Communications Department, students, teachers, and staff will be required to wear masks. Families are encouraged to send students to school already wearing a mask, but one will be provided should the student not have one or forget to wear it to school. Students will be allowed to remove their masks for outdoor activities, during mealtimes, or for 'mask breaks' when outside.
We know wearing masks may be challenging for some students and also understand the need for flexibility as we adjust to this new practice. Students will not be penalized for not wearing a mask, but we will work with parents and students to move towards a consistent practice of wearing a mask.
Students receiving special education services will be required to wear masks unless their disability impacts their ability to do so. In these cases, social distancing will be practiced as much as feasible. Decisions about masks will be made between parents and the Special Education teacher based on the unique needs of the student.
Please make plans to wash the face mask daily in warm water. If you need assistance with this, please contact our office for support.
