What will the 2020/2021 school year look like for NCC?   We continue to wait on specific guidance from the State and Shasta County. However, we are anticipating that students will be able to return to school on August 12th when we start the new school year. Our staff are working on a plan that includes:

  1. Purchasing health equipment that will be used to insure students do not have an elevated temperature prior to entering school each morning.
  2. Providing hand-washing stations around campus.
  3.  Purchasing plexiglass study carols that would be on student desktops. We will need help constructing these study carols  and will be asking folks to come out with table saws, drills, and time.
  4.  Setting up schedules that minimize large group interactions and keep students together as a class.
  5.  Allowing parents the option of their students to attend in person or participate in distance learning.
  6. Modifying the daily and/or weekly schedule to provide teachers the time to meet with students  participating  in distance learning.

What will distance learning look like for parents who choose this option next year? On the recent survey sent out to parents, 70% of you shared you wanted your students back at school. Nearly 30% shared desiring distance learning at home. Over the next two weeks, we will be asking each of our parents to commit to either  having their students attend at school or keeping their students at home on a distance learning plan.  This will help us begin reviewing schedules and developing the school program for next year.

When will report cards come home:  Teachers will be turning in participation and completed work data after school ends this year. This will be utilized to complete a Distance Learning/COVID-19 report card. These report cards will be mailed home on Monday, June 15.

When can students return school materials/chromebooks and collect their items from their desk? Students may come to school during the following times to return and pick up materials.

Monday, June 1: 7:00am-12:00pm
Tuesday, June 2: 7:00am—12:00pm
Wednesday, June 3: 7:00am-5:30pm

Thursday, June 4: 7:00am-7:00pm

When will yearbooks be available: We are hopeful yearbooks will be here and available for pickup by students during the schedule listed above. We are being told shipping may be delayed and will keep parents informed
