NLS COVID-19 Safe Learning

  • The health and safety of our staff, students and families is our highest priority. As part of that commitment, we are closely monitoring the continuously evolving progress of COVID-19, in our school community and school district. As a school district we will continue to utilize the CDC and MDH recommendations. To stay informed please verify that you have all modes of communication checked in Parent Portal and frequently visit our website. Staff will continue to build and maintain relationships with our students regardless of situations COVID-19 presents.  

    Our Safe Return to Learn Plan can be found here
    Our COVID-19 Decision Tree Guidance for People in Schools experiencing symptoms can be found here

    We ask that parents and students review our Masking/Face Covering Information. It is also important that all families ensure that their students do not have COVID-19 symptoms prior to sending students to school. If your child is awaiting COVID-19 test results, they must quarantine until the results are returned and are negative.
