Latest Information

Dear Families,

We are very excited to welcome you to our first virtual Open House on 11/4/20. I will share the link to our playlist with you here (below). Much like the playlists your students receive, there are asynchronous tasks and synchronous meetings. I am sharing the information for all staff in our building.

The staff created slideshows, powerpoints, or videos for you under the asynchronous column. It is our hope you will view these before Wednesday, 11/4 at 5:30 pm. These asynchronous items are done by staff so you can see some of what goes on in the classrooms and teaching spaces at NES.

On Wednesday 11/4, from 5:30 - 6:00 pm, you will join the meeting link for your child's classroom teacher. They will be there to talk with all participants and answer any questions you may have. This is not a specific student conference time; we will be scheduling those in December. This is a time to follow up on questions you may have from the asynchronous information you previously viewed. From 6:00 - 6:30, please join the meeting links for any of our additional staff who may work with your child. These additional staff members include our specials teachers, special educators, therapists, reading interventionists, our nurse, ELL teachers, and student support staff.

I am sharing the links below to view and begin your asynchronous work. Despite our best efforts (we are all still learning), if you have trouble opening something on the document, please let us know. Your child's teachers should have shared their asynchronous and synchronous items with you as well.

Here is the link for the Open House Events!! Open House Playlist

We look forward to seeing you online!!

Traveling to and From Massachusetts

  • Remember to be mindful of any travel you may have planned for August. You will be required to follow the regulations that went into effect on 8/1. These include:

    • All visitors and Massachusetts residents returning home — including students returning to campuses this fall — must fill out a “Massachusetts Travel Form” and quarantine for 14 days. People can also text MATraveler to 888-777.

    • Exemptions include travelers from lower-risk states and people who can show a negative COVID-19 test administered no more than 72 hours prior to arriving in the Bay State. The current low-risk states are New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Maine, Rhode Island, Vermont, New Hampshire and Hawaii.

    • People must remain in quarantine until they receive negative test results, except for when going to get their test.

    • Failure to comply can result in a $500 fine per day.

    • Exceptions include people passing through or commuting across state lines for work, military personnel, critical infrastructure workers, and people seeking or receiving medical treatment.
