Happy New Year, Nitrauer Families!I hope you all had a healthy and relaxing winter break. We have a lot of information to share with you to kick off 2021!

1. Next week – Going Green!

  • All face-to-face learners will be in school Monday through Friday as we return to the green instructional phase.

2. Very Important Reminder: It is imperative that you contact me ( before reaching out to your child’s teacher regarding a non-quarantined child and his/her current educational option. If your student is taking a sick day from school he/she will not be learning that day via Zoom. Please contact me with questions.

3. Please reference this document for updated information you would receive if your child(ren) required being quarantined. If you were to receive this individually, the specific dates would be included. This is being shared to address some of the questions and concerns we frequently receive.
