Health & Safety:
If we have a COVID case in your student’s classroom, you will be notified by a letter. If your student is “exposed”, we will attempt to call or email you in addition to sending a letter. Please continue to monitor your student for symptoms each morning before putting them on the bus. Note that they must have a mask on before boarding the bus. If they refuse to wear a mask during the day, you will receive a call. Please wear masks if you must come to the office. Students are kept in cohorts through-out the day, as much as possible.
If two students in a room test positive for COVID, the classroom will move to remote learning. If two classrooms are closed in a wing (ELEM or MS) it will be moved to remote learning only for at least a week.
All students will continue to have a chromebook and hotspot available for learning all year long. Refer to our website www.nsdeagles.org for your student’s class page. Their teacher will give you links & passwords for academic programs used in their grade. These progressive programs will display their achievements as well. If your student’s class is in full quarantine, your teacher will contact you & provide zooms each day in addition to the online resources. If teachers are allowed in the building (per the DOH) packets will be available for pick-up each week on Tuesdays & Thursdays as well. Please let your student’s teacher know if you are missing a chromebook.
Policies & Funding:
We are sending home the updated Indian Policies & Procedures which are required in order to qualify for our Impact Aid funding. Please let us know if you have any comments or concerns regarding them.
Communication folders will come with your child each Thursday. Please read the material each week and return the folder with the student on each Monday. In addition, a quarterly newsletter should be coming in November. If school is closed, you will be notified via Robo-call. Please note that this will also mean that all sports are closed as well.
Boys & Girls Basketball for 5th – 8th grade has started. In order to practice, your student must have a physical & all permission paperwork signed. Further, if your student is not vaccinated, they must be tested for COVID twice a week here at the school per WIAA rules. Please note that no spectators will be allowed at any inside sporting event (practice or games) in Nespelem SD, due to COVID, as we are attempting to keep school open and out of quarantine.
Enjoy your weekend.
