Plans for the 2020-21 School year-Update 7-15-20

A Task Force of parents, teachers, administrators, maintenance staff, custodial staff, transportation staff, cafeteria staff, and school board members worked over the past month to create a plan to reopen school on Aug. 10, 2020 for the new school year.  The NWCS School Board approved the plan on July 14, 2020. Individual school plans will be released by the end of the week.  
Parents will be given the choice to send students to school or receive an online/remote education through NWCS if there is a medical necessity for the child or a family member.  NWCS will not require a doctor's note for this option.  
Bus transportation will be impacted and students will be limited to an assigned seat on one bus route.
 If you did not receive an email to select the options for learning or transportation, you can use the link below to make your choices.  Selections are required by the end of the day July 27, 2020.

Parent Survey regarding 2020-21

Here are the quantitative results so far from a survey to parents regarding the 2020-21 school year. The survey is not considered scientific, but it does provide useful insight for planning. The board will discuss this info next Tuesday and next steps will be determined. We will be likely putting together a task force to assemble our plans.

Reopening Update 7-25-20

NWCS Update: Because of the Governor's executive order, parents will have until July 30th to select whether they will send their children to NWCS schools every day or participate in the remote/online learning option; and, to select whether to use school bus transportation. The original deadline was July 27th. The school board will consider any changes to the original reopening guidance at the regular meeting on July 28th. 

You can go to www.nwcs.k12.in.us under the heading, "Plans for the 2020-21 School year-Update 7-15-20" to find the "Click here to select options for learning and bus transportation" and the current reopening guidance. 

If you have already submitted your choices and change your mind, you can fill out the form again and we will honor your most recent submission. (Go to the “Click here to select options…”)


NWCS plans to use a Facebook live forum after the school board meeting on July 28th to address additional questions generated from any reopening changes approved by the school board or any other questions that have yet to be addressed.


Thanks for your patience and cooperation in these unpredictable times.


FYI-everything is subject to change on short notice these days….
