Nitrauer Update — December 4th

From Dr. Hancock

Good afternoon, Nitrauer Families!

I am very proud of the incredibly hard work our students and staff demonstrated this week as we experienced our first “yellow” phase of learning! There’s important info below–please read carefully!


Returning to “Green” Phase Next Week!!

On Monday, December 7, Manheim Township K-4 elementary schools will return to the green instructional mode, which means face-to-face students will return to the building every day. Please be sure to send your student’s charged iPad and all other materials to school with him/her on Mon, Dec. 7.

Mitten/Hat/Coat Drive

We will be having a mitten, hat, and coat drive this year. If you are interested in donating a new, unused item, please send it in (unwrapped) to school with your child.

Recess on Cold Days:

If the “feels like” temp is 19 or below, we stay indoors for recess.

If the “feels like” temp is above 20, we go outside for recess.

Please make sure your child is dressed appropriately. Let us know if you are in need of proper winter clothing!

Picture Retake Day – January 28

Retake day has been moved to Thursday, January 28. This is an early dismissal day. Remote learners will have the opportunity to come to Nitrauer for a photo after 2pm. Stay tuned for more information!

If the weather ever causes us to have a two-hour delay, we would:

  • Notify you about the delay (email and text notification)
  • Start school at 11:00 a.m.
  • BREAKFAST: We do serve breakfast on a limited basis on a two-hour delay schedule.
  • BUS ARRIVAL: Buses arrive at your child’s assigned stop approximately two hours after your normally scheduled time (If your bus usually arrives at 8:30 AM, your bus would arrive at approximately 10:30 AM).

Have a great weekend!

Dr. Hancock
