Reopening Schools 2020-2021
NHCS is operating under Plan B AA/BB schedule in all grades. Pre-K through grade 5 will transition to Plan A on Monday, March 8, 2021. Grades 6-12 will continue to operate under Plan B AA/BB schedule.
Under Plan A, all elementary students will have the option to choose full-time in-person learning or full-time remote learning. Schools will be contacting parents to verify the attendance option they are choosing for their student.
NHCS families should verify PowerSchool contact information is current to receive Connect 5 phone, email, and text notifications from their schools and the district.
Under Plan A or B we will open our doors to students at 7:20 am. We will start dismissal at 2:30 pm. Please review the map for car line drop-off and pick-up flow:
Check out the video on Arrival procedures!
All students will be screened before entering the building. If they arrive by bus, they will be screened once they exit the bus. If they arrive by car, we ask that they stay in the car until a health screener has met your vehicle, asked screening questions, and scanned your child's temperature.

Forest Hills Global Social Distancing Guidelines and Expectations
All staff and students will be required to wear an approved mask or face covering. They may only be removed to eat or drink and during scheduled mask breaks or vigorous outdoor activity. We will be teaching students proper mask wearing and handling but will need your support at home to make this a smooth transition.
Staff will minimize exposure to the best of our ability in the classroom.
Hallways have been marked with 6' distancing signs to help students visualize spacing to address social distancing.
Classroom teachers have designed procedures that limit sharing of common items (ie scissors, books, crayons, PE equipment, etc.) and have arranged for students to have their own set of needed materials.
Custodians have increased their sanitizing efforts and frequent cleanings are made to high-touch surfaces.
We are incredibly grateful for our parent volunteers that would typically enter our building daily. However, at this time, visitors and volunteers are still not permitted.
