iPad Collection May 26 & 27

Dear NWCS Parents/Guardians:

May 22nd will be our final eLearning day and marks the end of the 2019-20 school year for students.  Thank you so much for making the best of an extremely difficult situation.

On Tuesday, May 26th & Wednesday 27th, NWCS will host iPad collection days from 12 noon to 6 PM each day. 

Parents will need to return iPads to the school where each child attends.  Parents will need to bring the iPad, iPad case, and charger to the gymnasium of your child’s school.

Buildings will set up so that limited touching of objects will be needed.  Ossian, Lancaster, NMS, and NHS will send further instructions for any particular procedure that is specific to each building.  Please honor social distancing all times.

If you are unable to make it to school on May 26th or 27th, please call Central Office (260-622-4125) and make arrangements to bring the iPad at an alternate time.  All iPads must be returned by the end of the day on June 1st.

Student Meals During School Closure

Starting Tuesday April 14, 2020, meals will be distributed two (2) days a week on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  On Tuesdays, two (2) meals will be distributed and on Thursday, three (3) meals will be distributed.      

Tuesday & Thursday Pick-up: 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM  

Ossian Elementary           Door 6  

Lancaster Elementary     Door 14  

Norwell High School        Door 20  

If you selected delivery, those meals will be delivered to the address you provided or an alternate location where you were instructed to meet the bus.  Our bus drivers will be in our smaller white buses so they can pull into driveways.  If you do not meet them at the bus, they will leave the meals on your front door step.   

If you have dogs outside, our drivers will either leave the meals by the mailbox, on the driveway, or not delivery the meals at all.  Our drivers have been instructed to use their discretion to maintain their personal safety.  

Bus delivery will begin at 10 AM.  It may take up to three hours to deliver all of the meals.  We apologize, but this is our first attempt.  If you do not have your meals by 1 PM, please call us at 622-4125 to let us know.    

COVID-19 Closure update 4-2-20 4:00 PM

Brief update after today’s Govenor’s press conference:

School will not return to normal this school year.  However, NWCS will have to provide 160 days of instruction to our students for the school year.  Our current calendar accomplishes that.

Seniors who were on track to graduate will.

We are still planning to conduct graduation by some method at some time so we will not change the date for it yet.  However, we cannot guarantee we will hold in on it’s original date.

High School credit offering classes for Grades 8-11 will continue to completion for awarding credit.

NWCS will have to develop a learning plan due to the DOE April 17th to describe how we will comply with the State’s guidelines.

As for a local decision, NWCS facilities will be closed for any non-work related activity for the rest of the year. 

More guidance will be offered for all of this breaking news in the near future.
