Update from Dr. Cathy Lauer

We are asking that families complete a survey that represents their current thoughts about the reopening of the school year. Specifically, how comfortable are you sending your children back to school in a “regular” school setting? What should NSCISD consider as we prepare to resume? This is a non-binding query – you are not committing at this time. The administration will consider these survey results as we begin tentative plans to resume instruction in August of 2020. Towards the end of July, we will be sending out a commitment form for parents and guardians to make their declaration of a final decision.
