NACP Parents In the Know

News From Our Principal, Dr. Guerrero

WEEK 24 - March 12, 2021

Message from the Principal

Dear NACP Students and Families,


Happy Friday! We made it through another week thanks to your support and dedication and that of all of our NACP Teachers and Support Staff!


One year ago today on March 12, 2020 we made the difficult decision to close our beloved and beautiful campus due to the growing concerns of a world Pandemic known as COVID-19. At the time the health department had predicted that we would only needed to close down for a couple of weeks. Never would we have guessed, that one year later we would still be closed and serving our kids via Distance Learning.


We have learned so much in these past 365 days! Our Distance Learning Program has evolved, we added additional technology and offered Wi-Fi to our families. We have learned about resiliency, about Zoom meetings, Google Classroom, new educational programs and ways of learning. We have learned about staying connected despite being at a distance and the importance of effective communication.


Most importantly we learned about TEAMWORK! Working as a team has been of utmost importance and we are doing it for our kids. That is our WHY. It is what keeps us moving, what gives us hope.


To all of our NACP Families and Kids we thank you from the bottom of our hearts! Go Dolphins!


Sincerely Yours,

-Dr. Guerrero

NACP Students Learning from Home

NACP Two Weeks Prior to Closures

Weeks Prior to closures we had our Annual Family Picnic, we met world know children song writer and artist Jose Luis Orozco, we had an assembly to learn about Bullying Prevention, our students learned about taking care of our environment, we had our annual Oversight Visit, parents were meeting regularly in our Parent Center, and so much more. We miss those days and hope to soon be back on site.
