Dear Parents,

It’s hard to believe the holidays are upon us. On behalf of N.E.S. staff, we wish all of you an enjoyable holiday season with your family and friends. We are very grateful for your support of our school community and look forward to working with you in the New Year.

Happy Holidays!

1st Trimester Report Cards:

Your child’s report card will be available online starting on Friday, December 10th. The standards-based report card will reflect a grade in only those standards that were taught in the classroom during the first trimester. Those standards that haven’t been taught will either be left blank or marked NA (not applicable) If you have any questions or concerns regarding your child’s report card, please contact you child’s teacher.

Health Update

We know some are getting tired hearing about COVID, but unfortunately it is a reality we all must live with. As you are aware the incidents of COVID have been on the increase here at NES and across the state. We respectfully request that if your child is not feeling well or is exhibiting signs of COVID, that you do not send them to school. We are working hard to keep our school open during these unprecedented times. Sending an ill child to school may compromise the health of classmates and staff in the building and ultimately can make it difficult to staff the building.


The official start of winter is just around the corner, and hat & coat weather has already arrived! Please keep in mind your child needs to be dressed appropriately for the winter weather conditions. All children will be sent out to recess for some fresh air every day unless the temperature is well below 20o Fahrenheit.  Hats, mittens, and snow pants are recommended. Students in grades K, 1, 2 and 3 must have snow pants and boots to play in the snow.

Lost & Found:

Our lost and found is bursting at the seams with coats, hats, and many other items. We will display these items for the children to see before our December break. Any items left, will be donated to a local charity.
