The winter holidays are coming and that means lots of school activities and events, and, of course, the breaks.

Thanksgiving emtpy desk and grad silhouettebreak is Nov. 19-23; winter break is Dec. 17 - Jan 4.

Just a few days missed here and there, even if excused, add up to too much lost learning time and put your child behind in school. Please plan your holiday vacations only during the school breaks.

The continuing effects of the Camp Fire on our air quality can be difficult, especially for those with breathing sensitivities.

After discussions with our staff, the County Office of Education, the Napa County Dept of Public Health, and other North Bay districts, along with consideration of various factors, NVUSD will take the following precautions to lessen the effects on our students and staff.

  • In elementary schools, teachers have been directed to move PE, lunch, recess and any other relevant activities indoors. Secondary schools are encouraged to maximize as much internal space as possible and to modify their supervision protocols to ensure students are safe.

  • All staff have been directed to keep doors and windows closed.

  • Our Maintenance and Operations staff is operating the ventilation system with recirculating (not outside) air and dampers closed, to maintain the air quality in the classrooms and staff areas

  • Teachers and other staff who work directly with your students will follow protocols for any students who have concerning symptoms or reactions by contacting parents directly. Our school nurses are also available to respond to concerns.

  • Athletics will follow NCS Guidelines regarding postponement or cancellation.

  • 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. 

As parents, you know your student’s health and needs best, and we encourage you to make the best choice for your student in terms of attendance. If you decide to keep your student out of school, please just follow the usual attendance protocols for your school. The absence will be excused and teachers will talk with your student about making up the work.

NVUSD will continue to monitor the situation and will send ongoing communication, as needed. We will also post announcements on the school websites. Thank you for your support.

Dear Parents,ParentSquare logo

We hope you are enjoying using ParentSquare as our new parent communication platform.

You receive primarily text messages and emails; phone calls are used only for attendance or urgent information.You don’t have to download the ParentSquare app, but if you do, you can also receive messages through the app.

Data, meaning your contact email address and cell phone number for texts, is the heart of the system: the right data, entered correctly, in the right places. Our student database (Aeries.net) feeds contact information to ParentSquare, which allows us to contact you.

If your ParentSquare communication isn’t reaching you yet, that indicates a data issue that we want to identify and fix.

If you aren’t receiving any ParentSquare messages at all from your child’s school, please contact your school office and ask to review your contact information in Aeries with a staff member.

If you use the ParentSquare app and have more than one child in NVUSD, you should be able to see all of your students in your account. If you can’t, please contact kcliff@nvusd.org to ensure that your contact information is consistent across each of the schools.

We’ve also included here some online resources …

Full and Fair Funding
Despite boasting the fifth-largest economy in the world and the highest gross domestic product of any state, California sits near the bottom nationally in nearly every significant measure of school funding and school staffing.

The California School Boards Association (CSBA) has launched a new website advocating for the Full and Fair Funding students deserve and California public schools need to prepare graduates for college, career and civic life in the 21st century. To ensure that California remains the home of innovation and opportunity, CSBA is calling on the state Legislature to raise school funding to the national average by 2020 and to the average of the top 10 states by 2025. 

Visit the website and sign the Full and Fair Funding petition.

Hello, NVUSD families,

Last week, we announced the student calendar for 2019-2020, which our Board approved earlier this month. It included two non-student days in October and March, to allow for professional development for our teachers and other staff, and a school year start date of Monday, Aug. 12, two days earlier than our traditional start date.

Following that announcement, we received feedback from some students, staff and parents, specifically regarding the impact the earlier start date would have on the agricultural community, especially those involved with the Napa Town & Country Fair.

We take that feedback seriously, and so will revisit the 2019-2020 calendar, using a process that is yet to be finalized, but will solicit interests and input from parents, administrators, teachers and support staff through a calendar committee that we will create. Please watch for additional information soon.

In the meantime, please know that we are aware of how the school calendar impacts our families’ lives, and appreciate your patience and collaboration as we work through the 2019-2020 calendar.

Regards,
Dr. Rosanna Mucetti

Each spring, students in grades 3-8 and high school participate in the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP). English language arts/literacy, mathematics, and science tests are included in CAASPP.

For CAASPP testing, students who have the most significant cognitive disabilities, as designated in their active individualized education program, are eligible to take the California Alternative Assessments (CAAs).

The testing window opens April 2 for NVUSD students. The actual testing period within that window varies at each school. 

This year, your child will take the following test(s), depending on his or her grade level:

  • Smarter Balanced Summative Assessment in English language arts/literacy (grades 3-8 and grade 11)
  • Smarter Balanced Summative Assessment in mathematics (grades 3-8 and grade 11)
  • California is in the process of implementing the California Next Generation Science Standards. As part of that implementation, students in grades 5, 5, 8, and high school will try out a new test called the California Science Test, or CAST.

These tests measure what your child knows and is able to do. Results help identify gaps in knowledge or skills early on so your child can get the support he or she needs to be successful in school.

For more information about tests, results, preparation, and the Alternative Assessments, visit the NVUSD Student Testing webpage.

For information on specific dates and times when your child will take the test in each subject, please contact your child's teacher or the school office.

State law requires all students entering 7th grade to provide proof of having received a T-DAP or Pertussis (whooping cough) booster, prior to the start of school in August. Students who have not received this booster shot will not be allowed to start school next August for the 2018-2019 school year. Parents will receive a letter in the mail soon which gives more detailed information regarding the state law. Proof of the vaccine should be brought to the student's school office.

Spring Break is March 26-30.

Please don't miss school days before or after the break.

 

DOES ATTENDANCE MATTER, REALLY?
Short answer: Yes. Attendance matters. 
 

It matters to your STUDENT 
* Children who miss 20 or more days of school in kindergarten through third grade do poorly in school, and have future problems with truancy, delinquency and substance abuse, and are more likely to drop out of school.
* For low-income students in urban areas, each additional day absent from school in elementary grades is associated with a 7% lower probability of graduating from high school.
* Truancy is a 97% predictor of first-time drug use. The greater the number of truant days, the greater the use. 
This information is from the California Dept of Education.
 

It matters to your SCHOOL
At NVUSD, the average student is absent 7 days each school year. If we can reduce that to an average of 5 days, it would save the District $1.5 million in lost funding from the state. That amount represents nearly half of NVUSD's budget reductions for 2018-2019. Please plan family vacations to correspond to school breaks. 
Thank you!

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.

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.
