We have instructional plans, we need money. What is the procedure for paying for NEST supplies and when do we start ordering?

Would it be possible to do NEST from 1-2 and then transition back to homerooms to load buses? Concerns about getting kids on buses, younger grades especially.

Would it be possible to break it into two separate sessions? December-Feb and then March-May?
