A Note from Ms. Coyle

We have a few great weeks here at Nicholson! Students have gotten into their routines and it has been fun to see all of the learning happening in each classroom! If you are interested in volunteering please reach out to the office your child's teacher about opportunities here at school. In the next few weeks, you will be hearing from teachers to set up Parent/Teacher conferences. Those will be held in October. See the info below on our Bike and Hike! I hope you can attend!

Bike and Hike

Our annual Bike and Hike is on Tuesday, September 27th. We are so excited for it to be back this year! It is one of our favorite nights of the year! We meet at the library and start riding bikes/walking back to Nicholson at 5:00. Please no electric scooters. West Main Street is closed down for the event. Once back at school there are lots of fun activities for families. The event ends at 6:30. All are welcome! Hope to see you there! Next week, the Department of Transportation will be coming to Nicholson next week to teach students about Bike Safety and hand out new helmets to everyone!

Counselor's Corner

Please take a moment to check out Mrs. Scheidler's monthly newsletter. College Go Week is fast approaching. We have lots of fun things planned including dress up days.

Morning Drop Off

Our parking lot is very busy in the mornings and also very dark. Please follow the flow of traffic (no u-turns) and stay in line until you've dropped your student off. I also ask that you do not get out of line and bypass other cars after dropping your student off. We have students that walk around the vehicle when exiting and cutting out of line creates very unsafe situations. There is room for 5 cars to unload at a time. Colored signs mark where students can exit their car. We will have staff on the sidewalk making sure the line is moving as quickly as possible.

Also, our car rider door closes and locks at 7:50am. After this time, you MUST drop your student off at the main doors. Please do not leave your student at the car rider door if it is not attended by a staff member.

Thank you for helping us keep the students and parking lot safe!


Car riders are picked up in our parking lot. Please do not block the entrance to the Lane House Nursing Home. If your child is consistently a car rider in the afternoon, you are required to have a school-issued tag that coordinates with your student. If you did not receive tags, please email call our office to get one. Students will not be released to anyone without a tag or a note from the office. Transportation changes must be made by 2:00pm. This year, all cars are asked to make a right hand turn out of the parking lot. This will keep cards from crossing in front of the buses. Thank you!

Covid Protocols

  • IDOH does not recommend quarantine or contact tracing in K-12 schools
  • Individuals who test positive for COVID-19 should continue to isolate for at least 5 days
  • Once isolation has ended, the agency recommends you were a high quality mask through day 10.

If a student is in close contact with a person who tests positive, they can continue to come to school as long as they remain symptom free. If a student tests positive, the school nurse needs a photo/copy of the positive test result
