- We are social distancing in each of the rooms, as we walk through the hallways and line up for lunch.
- We have spread out in classrooms and lunches.
- Everyone is wearing masks.
School Work / Chromebooks
If your child has been out of school for any reason they may also have work to be picked up in the lobby. Please come between 8:00-4:00 to pick those items up so your child dosn't get too far behind with their school work.
We are still trying to get all the loaned Chromebooks returned. If your child has a Chromebook that was loaned to them please return it so we can get it to the correct student. We are trying to get each and every student a device and case.
Ways you can help at home with remote learning:

Tecumseh Education Connection
The Education Connection is a telephone number that you can call 24-hours a day to listen to your child’s homework assignments, report your child’s absence, hear the lunch menu, find out the scores of the big game, hear about school closings and leave a private message for a staff member.
You will still need to call your child in if they will not be attending school, or doing their online work for the day. We will still need to document attendance. We are marking students with green, yellow and red attendance.
Please use the TEC number for:
- Calling your child in sick.
- Leave a voicemail with questions.
Coming Soon . . .
The students at NCES are able to receive positive referrals from staff for going above and beyond. We are so proud of our students who have earned positive referrals during the month.
When students receive a positive referral their photo is taken, the receive a bracelet, candy or a pencil. Additionally, students receiving positive referrals are honored as we hang their photo in the hallway of each student receiving a positive office referral and these students are also honored on our morning announcements which can be viewed on our Youtube channel, and their pictures scroll on the TV in the office. It is really exciting for our students.

Arrival and Dismissal at NCES
Arrival - Please drop off all students at the front door by 8:30 to make a shuttle bus. Students are not able to enter the building prior to 7:35. If your child is having breakfast they can also enter at this time. If your child is NOT eating breakfast at school they can arrive at 8:55.
Dismissal - All students will be picked up using the curb lane. This is a safety concern for our students. It is also another way to continue social distancing.
You are welcome to park your car and walk to the designated red spots on the ground to wait for your child.
If you need a Name Placard for your child please let us know. It is helpful to have that located on your dashboard or in your side window.
Thank you for your cooperation. Our students safety is our highest concern.
We are still collecting . . .
New Carlisle Elementary is continuing a school-wide collection of pop tabs. If you drink pop at home and would send the tabs in with your child we would greatly appreciate them. We also would accept dog/cat food tabs and canned food tabs. Thank you for helping with this cause. The children are really excited to help out.
