NCES NTI Site Orientation 20-21

Care Package Pick-Up- IMPORTANT

We are excited to welcome you on Thursday to pick up instructional materials and technology (if you requested a device from JCPS). Elementary families should come to the bus loading lane during their class' assigned time to pick up materials. ECH families will use the car rider side of the building. If you are unable to utilize the class time, you may come between 5 and 6 p.m. on 8/20 (Thursday) or you can make an appointment for pick up on 8/24. If you do not have transportation, or are not able to come to the school to pick up items, please email and we will be happy to help you. Please note that, per JCPS guidance, you must remain in your vehicle during item pick-up, and we must load the items into a back seat (if no one is seated in the back seat) or trunk of your vehicle. Also, all family members should be wearing masks during item distribution.

If the weather causes us to delay pick-up until Friday, we will distribute a message via School Messenger. Please make sure you check your email in the morning on Thursday, if it is raining. If you need to view the schedule for the day, it can be found below (under 'repeated items'). Thank you!

New Items to Review:

NTI Supplies

NCES Families,

Teachers will be sending you a list of recommended supplies to have on hand at home during NTI. If you are unable to get these items, please let our FRC Coordinator (Christy Case) know and we will assist in gathering them for you. Christy can be reached via email at We are here to support you!

Repeated Items:

Student Item Pick Up Schedule

We have created 'care packages' for our students that include welcome letters, workbooks, and other supplemental materials that students may need to be successful during NTI 2.0. We will hold a drive-through pick up on 8/20 (rain date 8/21) to distribute the items. The schedule is linked, below. Please ensure that you read the guidance at the top of the page. Every class has an assigned 20 minute block to collect their class materials and a Chromebook or hot spot, if one was requested and approved by JCPS. If you are unable to come to the school during the class block, there is an additional evening option on 8/20 for pick up; and a final block on 8/24 prior to NTI beginning (by appointment). If you are unable to come to the school to gather your items, please email our FRC Coordinator, to make other arrangements. We look forward to seeing our Knights!
