Winter Break is Dec. 18 - Jan. 5. School resumes Jan. 8, 2018.

 

Every year, absences spike in the weeks before and after the winter holiday break as families squeeze in a few more vacation days.

 

It’s time to break that cycle. We know that just a few missed days here and there, even if they’re excused absences, can add up to too much lost learning time and put your child behind in school.

 

Our teachers will be teaching, and our students will be learning, right up until each break starts and the first day back. You can help us convey that message. This holiday season, give your children the gift of an education and the habit of attendance.

Four updates:

  • Food service this week
  • The planned non-student day on Friday, Oct. 27
  • Elementary parent conferences
  • Wednesday’s Safety and Security Parent meeting

We want to clarify that school breakfast and lunch are not free to all students this week. We realize that many families have had a change in housing or income status due to the fires, and we will provide breakfast and lunch to those students while we work to get the proper paperwork completed.

 

Secondly, as planned, there will be no school for students on Friday, Oct. 27. We are working with our teachers on options for recovering student learning lost during the fire emergency. We will share those plans as soon as they are available.

 

Next, if your student is in elementary school, you will hear directly from the school about rescheduling your parent conference. The intent is to complete conferences before Thanksgiving break.

 

Finally, we will reschedule the Safety and Security Parent meeting that was scheduled for this Wednesday, Oct. 25, at the District Auditorium. Please watch for the new date.

 

Thank you, and welcome back to school!

Here's why:

  • We committed to making attendance decisions based on air quality, and the forecast for the week continues to include periods in the red (unhealthy) and purple (very unhealthy) zones.
  • There is just too much variability in air quality to be confident for an entire school day.

We are committed to getting students back in school as quickly as possible, but only when the air quality situation is more reliably orange (unhealthy for sensitive groups) or better. 

 

NVUSD staff will get additional information through their usual communication channels.

 

For students with asthma

If your student has asthma but does not have an inhaler at school and you want to send one,  please download the NVUSD medication form and ask your health care provider (doctor) to complete and sign it. Return it to your school office with your student's inhaler.

WELCOME to Girls on the Run Napa & Solano! We look forward to your participation in Girls on the Run and hope that you are going to have as much fun as we are! A few things for you to consider bringing each day:

  • Always bring properly fitted athletic shoes (P.E.) to workout in. Don’t forget to bring socks too, because without them you might get blisters.
  • Please wear clothes appropriate for running and playing. Shorts and a T-shirt work best. If it is really hot, wear light colored, loose-fitting clothing. If it is very cold, layering clothes works best – wear an undershirt with a sweatshirt and/or sweat pants. If the weather is yucky we will not run outside, but we will still get together.
  • Always bring a full water bottle.
  • Always come equipped with a be-yourself kind of attitude. Everyone is valued, whether they run fast or not. Even though running and walking are fun, being part of Girls on the Run is even more fun. Everyone is important, whether you help give out healthy snacks or you cheer on another person.

 
The first day of Girls on the Run is September 12th with your amazing volunteer life coaches, Strong Shari, Harmonious Heather & Amazing Antonia. We will meet on Tuesday and Thursday from 2:45-4:00 at Vichy Elementary in the grass area in front of the school. We will have a brief parent meeting the first day after Girls on the Run to answer questions and discuss expectations. Please remember:

  • Bring a photo ID to help our volunteers release your girl safely (until they know you).
  • Make sure you have shared all the names of the authorized persons for pick up with the Girls on the Run Napa & Solano office (707-637-8909). If you need to add one, please try for at least 24 hours notice so we have time to share with the volunteers.
  • Please know that we want GOTR to be a positive experience for everyone and that we want girls to participate so they receive the full benefit. Let us know if she is scheduled to miss more than 6 sessions. We can put her on the wait list for the fall program and offer her spot to another girl who has the time to participate.
  • We ask that all families make an effort to pickup your girl within 10 minutes of our session end so our volunteers can be with their families or go back to work.

 
All groups will run, walk, skip, leap or cartwheel all the way to the finish line of the Girls on the Run 5K on Saturday, November 11th at Napa Valley College and complete a community impact project. If you have any questions, please talk with your volunteer coach or call us at 707-637-8909.

Worldwide, nationally and locally, humans are being challenged by forces of nature: fires, hurricanes, earthquakes and more. Close to home, we know the anxiety and uncertainty people feel when their world is changed overnight, such as the earthquake of Aug. 24, 2014. So our empathy for those in Texas, Florida, Mexico and other places is real and heartfelt.

 

Many in our community are uncertain and anxious due to the announced changes in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) policy.  

 

Our Board of Trustees, as well as the County Supervisors and municipal councils, resolved in April 2017: “We aspire to be a model for inclusion and equity for all populations, including immigrants, refugees, and other newcomers and are committed to supporting the ongoing inclusion and long-term economic and social integration of newcomers, and to demonstrate values of unity and acceptance.”

 

We will continue to follow the policies put in place nationally, including Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, until new policies or laws are enacted, and remain committed to our vision of preparing all of our community’s children for college and careers in the 21st century.

 

El NVUSD se compromete a servir a todos los estudiantes

 

A nivel mundial, nacional y local, los seres humanos están siendo desafiados por las fuerzas de la naturaleza: incendios, huracanes y otros elementos. Cerca de casa, somos conscientes de la ansiedad y la incertidumbre que la gente siente cuando su mundo cambia de la noche a la mañana, como pasó con el terremoto del 24 de agosto de 2014. Así que nuestra empatía por aquellas personas que viven en Texas, Florida, México y otros lugares es real y sentida.

 

Muchas personas de nuestra comunidad tienen incertidumbre y ansiedad debido a los cambios anunciados sobre la normativa Acción Diferida para Llegadas Infantiles (DACA, por sus siglas en inglés).  

 

Nuestra Mesa del Consejo Directivo, así como los Supervisores del Condado y consejos municipales, resolvieron en abril de 2017: “Aspiramos a ser un ejemplo de inclusión y equidad para todas las poblaciones, inclusive inmigrantes, personas refugiadas y otros recién llegados, y estamos comprometidos con el hecho de apoyar la inclusión económica y social continua y a largo plazo de los recién llegados, y con el hecho de demostrar los valores de la unidad y la aceptación.”

 

Continuaremos siguiendo las normativas que se implementen a nivel nacional, inclusive la Acción Diferida para Llegadas Infantiles, hasta que se promulguen nuevas normativas o leyes, y permanecemos comprometidos con nuestra visión de preparar a todos los niños y niñas de nuestra comunidad para la universidad y las profesiones del siglo 21.

The consistent vision of our Board of Trustees is 

 

"Transform Lives By Instilling 21st Century Skills and Inspire Lifelong Learning in Every Student."

 

Thank you for your commitment to work together so we all can best serve our students to achieve this vision.

 

Our students are making great progress, yet there is more work to be done.

We are fortunate to have amazing parents and generous community partners dedicated to developing well-rounded and empowered students.

 

Here are the academic goals adopted by the Board of Trustees for this school year.

 

Goals:

 

1. Students will graduate college and career ready.

2. Staff will provide equitable access and opportunities to close the achievement gap.

3. Students will master 21st century skills.

4. Develop educational programs that support healthy living.

 

On behalf of the Board of Trustees, thank you for your commitment to transform and inspire our students.
