To the Nottingham West Families:

 

It is with great pleasure that we WELCOME you to the 2020-21 school year at Nottingham West Elementary School.  We hope everyone had a safe and relaxing summer and is ready to begin another school year. Although this school year will look different with some of our students being remote  learners and some being in-person learners, we are still ONE community. Our staff is ready for this challenge and will provide high quality instruction regardless of the delivery model.

 

Understandably, we know there are a lot of questions regarding how we are going to keep our in-person students and staff safe during these uncertain times, so we have attached a Frequently Asked Questions document to this e-mail to answer some of those questions. This will give you an understanding of the precautions we are taking and some changes to past practices that will be in place throughout this school year. As always, if you have any additional questions or comments, you can reach out to me, Scott Baker, Principal or Gloria Hussey, Assistant Principal. We will be happy to have those conversations.

 

Embedded into this e-mail is a link pertaining to dismissal decisions/routines for your child. We are asking that every parent complete one this dismissal form for each child. This information will be critical on the first day and moving forward to ensure we have the accurate information on how your child will be getting home and therefore, a safe dismissal from the building. Link is below:

We have been feverishly working on revamping student placements to ensure that if we are forced to go into a hybrid model at some point, we will be prepared and in-line with the rest of the district (so siblings throughout the district would go to in-person learning on the same days). Those placements should be available through the Parent Portal next week. I will text everyone to let you know when those are posted.

 

We are also having a modified Meet and Greet day on September 3rd. A separate schedule will be sent out next week, so you have the details. Additionally, we will be hosting a Q&A Zoom meeting for parents on Friday, August 28th at 10AM. We will send Zoom invites the day before.

 

We all know that this is going to be a challenging year for everyone, but working TOGETHER, we will make this another positive and productive school year.

 

Thank you for your support and enjoy the rest of your summer!
