Weekly Message from the Principal

Dear NACP Students and Families,


We had our first Coffee With the Principal Informational Meeting this morning! It was nice to see our parents and some of our students in this meeting. Thank you to all the parents who were able to join us. For all those parents who were unable to Zoom in with us live, we do not want you to miss out on any of the information we shared and have attached a PDF copy of the Coffee with the Principal Slideshow to this newsletter for you to review at your leisure.



Thank you to all the parents who stopped by the school to pick up a device, I am happy to announce that each family with more than one child now has a device for each of their children. It is by appointment only.


Our teachers shared with parents their new Live Zoom schedule which will begin next week. Please make sure to check it out. Teachers will also be adding additional assignments and activities for students to complete independently.


Way to go to all everyone who picked up meals at our Grab and Go! Food Distribution this week. We served 200 meals Monday and Wednesday and today we served 332 meals!! Today's meals packs had enough breakfast and lunch for three days- Friday, Monday and Tuesday. Our Cafeteria director is looking into the possibility of expanding our meal program to serve all children in our community, we hope the state approves our application.


Thank you for stopping by!


Sincerely Yours,

-Dr. Guerrero
