Dear NES Families,

Teacher Appreciation Week can not end without me thanking you, for all of your support during the past weeks and for the future weeks ahead. I recognize that you have taken on somewhat of  a major role as an assistant teacher while your children are home. Without you, we could not provide the instruction the children deserve and need to be prepared for the coming years. I also want to recognize how much the NES staff appreciates your ongoing support. Collectively, I know as a school community we all care about the well being of the children- academic, social and emotional, and want to assure you we stand with you until the school year comes to a close. We are committed to providing support where needed and I encourage you to reach out to me, your child’s teacher, the school psychologist, Tara Reddington or the district social worker, Rebecca Angell for any questions, concerns or needs you may have. One of our district nurses shared this resource as well. Please take advantage of this should you need additional support.
