Requirement for Masks in School – Effective Friday, November 27, 2020
All Pre-Kindergarten to Grade 12 Students, Staff and Visitors MUST wear a mask at all times, except while eating or drinking.
Due to severe allergies amongst the students at NCS, the school requires that everyone avoid bringing any items with nut products, eggs that have not been baked into an item or animals to the school. Our students' health depends on your co-operation. Thank you.
Valentine's Day Cards
All students who are wishing to give Valentine's Day cards to their classmates are asked to have them at the school by the 9th of February so they can sit for the required three days before being shared.
ATTENTION ALL VISITORS AND STAFF
We are finding that many visitors (including parents) are ignoring protocols that include completing Visitor Contact Forms and sanitizing hands when visiting the school. All visitors are required to complete a form (on paper or online), sanitize hands and wear a mask when visiting the school for any reason and for any amount of time. The form can be found by scanning the QR Code found on the door at the main entrance. (See below for the image of the sign found on the front door). Thank you for your cooperation.
