A Message from Mrs. Caudill


While the weather today was not the greatest, it does look like Sunday's weather for trick-or-treating looks great. The last few years Mother Nature has not been kind. We could use a not cold and rainy Halloween. Enjoy these moments together this weekend and may your candy supply last you well into the winter holiday season.


Be Well,

Devon Caudill

COVID Safety and Mitigation Plans

As we come together in learning this year, it is important to remember to perform at-home self-monitoring using the COVID-19 Daily Student Symptom Screening Tool. This screener serves as a daily reminder that children who are exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19 (or ANY illness) need to stay home from school. This is an important measure that will help prevent or reduce the spread of COVID-19 in our schools. We appreciate everyone’s cooperation in using this screener each school day. In addition to the daily screener students and staff are required to wear masks while indoors.

The NPS 2021-22 COVID-19 General Mitigation Response Plan outlines the multiple layers of COVID-19 safety measures being implemented across the district to support the health and safety of all students and staff. School principals will share specific building procedures with families. Processes are in place at each school to teach and/or reinforce safety measures with all students. The Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) document answers additional questions you may have as you and your child are preparing for the start of the 2021-22 school year.

Leader in Me November Focus: Habit 2 - Begin with the End in Mind

We will be working on Habit 2: Begin With the End in Mind this month.


Begin with the End in Mind means to begin each day, task, or project with a clear vision of your desired direction and destination, and then continue by flexing your proactive muscles to make things happen. One of the best ways to incorporate Habit 2 into your life is to develop a Personal Mission Statement. It focuses on what you want to be and do. It is your plan for success. Plan ahead and set some goals - begin with the end in mind.


Great Books for Habit #2 - Begin With the End in Mind

  • The BFG by Roald Dahl
  • When I Grow Up by Sean Covey
  • Click Clack Moo Cows That Type by Doreen Cronin
  • Little Bunny on the Move by Peter McCarty
  • The School Story by Andrew Clements
  • Too Many Tamales by Gary Soto
  • Plant a Kiss by Amy Krouse
