Dear NCPS Families, I apologize for the misinformation and confusion around signing up for the ViSSTA testing. ViSSTA registration is required only once! Once you have registered as a parent and included your students as dependents they are signed-up and will remain eligible to test every week. The posted how-to-guide is the correct information. If you have any questions please contact Brittany Annon at bannon@ncpsk12.com or 757-678-5151 extension 6106

Dear NCPS families, Please accept my sincere apologies about the confusion around how to register for COVID-19 weekly testing. The parental/guardian how to guide was accidentally dropped from the vendors login email. This information is forthcoming from our vendor and once received will be uploaded to the division website and sent home again on ClassTag. In the meantime if you would like to register prior to receiving the how to guide please know that the parent must register themselves first and then register each student as a dependent. If you have already registered your student I will work with the vendor to make sure your consent form and their registration is complete for Friday February 4th testing. If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact me at bannon@ncpsk12.com or 757-678-5151 extension 6106. If the call is missed please leave a voicemail and I will return your call

During this current climate and surge of COVID-19 cases in the community, the Eastern Shore Health District of the Virginia Department of Health has notified the school system that they can no longer make notifications to the individual schools. The overwhelming number of cases that need to be followed up individually and tracked for the whole Eastern Shore community is too many to notify each school of every positive case and exposure. Therefore, these notifications to the schools are to be made by the families themselves. If you or your student has been exposed to COVID-19 or has tested positive for COVID-19 resulting in the need to quarantine or isolate, please call the school nurse at the extensions listed below. NCPS phone number – 757-678-5151 NHS/NMS Bonnie Porter – 4470 OES Tammy Taylor – 8106 KES Brittany Annon – 6106 The school nurse will then make sure your student’s attendance is marked accordingly and that make up work will be made available. If you receive a return to school note from a medical provider for your student, please turn that into the school attendance clerk for their file. Thank you for your understanding and support

Superintendent Lawrence Responds to threatening TikTok post: Yesterday, a TikTok post was circulating regarding a threat to school safety.  This post appears to be part of a national TikTok challenge trend - no threat was specifically made to any Northampton County Public School  After learning about the posts, I consulted with Sheriff Doughty to implement additional precautionary measures with our Middle and High School students.  All schools opened successfully today, without incident, and the Sheriff's office continues to provide extra coverage on our campuses.  Our schools will continue to operate in a normal manner.  This incident serves as a good opportunity to share with your children the importance of avoiding the sharing of posts and challenges referring to school threats.  We ask you to assist with monitoring your child's use of social networking.  If you or your child is aware of any threats that are posted to social media, please notify your child's school or the Superintendent's office.

Dear NCPS elementary school families, Starting January 4", 2022 Eastern Shore Rural Health Dental will resume dental services for our schools. Services will begin with an initial universal screening for all students PreK thru 6 grade to determine those in need for restorative care. These screenings will be done by an Eastern Shore Rural Health dental employee on school grounds. A dentist will perform an oral health screening for your child checking the health of her/his lips, tongue, teeth, gums, inside of the cheeks, and roof of the mouth to identify oral disease, and especially tooth decay. An oral health screening is completely painless and takes only 2 or 3 minutes to complete. Screenings are not examinations and do not involve making diagnoses that lead to treatment plans. However, you will be advised if the dentist finds any abnormal findings and offer suggestions of where care can be provided for your child. This letter is to serve as prior notice to these screenings taking place and if you would not like for your child to participate, please indicate that by returning the bottom portion of the letter found on our homepage under the news section to their school clinic by January 10", 2022. Please note Dental services will start first at KES, followed by OES and NHS/NMS at later dates.

15 de diciembre, 2021 Estimados Padres y Guardianes De NCPS Parents, Es posible que enfrentemos algunas inclemencias del tiempo en los próximos meses que pueden impedir los servicios educativos en persona en las ubicaciones de nuestras escuelas. Para mitigar los desafíos causados por el mal tiempo, las escuelas de NCPS ofrecerán servicios educativos virtuales, ya que estamos obligados a cumplir con un número mínimo de horas de instrucción. Se tomará la asistencia de su hijo y el Departamento de Educación de Virginia permitirá que el aprendizaje virtual cuente las horas de instrucción hasta diez días al año. Nos gustaría informarle sobre el plan de NCPS para continuar la instrucción de forma remota si surge la necesidad. Queremos asegurarnos de que todos estén preparados para proporcionar aprendizaje educativo de forma remota en caso de cierre. Como medida proactiva, queremos asegurar expectativas claras antes de cualquier incidente. https://5il.co/138mh
