Covid-19 Daily Screening - Updated Screening Tool

Parents are required to check students for COVID-19 symptoms EACH DAY BEFORE sending a child to school. By sending your child to school, you are declaring that you have completed the NPS COVID-19 Student Symptom Checker/Screening Tool and that your child is not exhibiting any of the symptoms or conditions listed. If you answer “YES” to one or more questions, you must keep your child home from school. It is essential that this process be done daily with integrity and fidelity. Temperature checks at school may be instituted periodically as appropriate.

Leader in Me - Habit 2: Begin With the End in Mind

This week’s Habit: Habit 2 Begin With the End in Mind -

"I have a plan"


What this means: Have a mission, a clear sense of where you want to go. Think about the end first- how are you going to get there?


“I plan ahead and set goals.”

2. Lay out your clothes for tomorrow the night before.

3. Write down 3 goals you want to accomplish.
