NUSD is excited to announce that this Friday, July 3rd at 6:30 pm we will be showing the Needles High School Graduation for the first time on our Needles Unified School District You Tube channel. The Graduation video will be followed by the individual senior videos. Join us to celebrate or Class of 2020!
The Superintendent and her team of administrators are working to plan for the 2020-2021 school year according to all required plans from the California Department of Education, San Bernardino County Superintendent of Schools, San Bernardino County Department of Public Health and the Governor of California. In addition our sports programs are implemented through the Nevada Interscholastic Activities Association (NIAA) guidelines but also with permission from the State of California.
We are working hard on all of these plans to best serve our children and their families within the Needles Unified School District. These plans may change more than once because school finally opens on August 17th as well as during the school year given the state of health within our community. Your patience is very much appreciated as we work to best serve our school community.
The plan below identifies that areas that we need to address in order to open. We are required to develop multiple plans that will support changes in community health at various times during next school year. More info will be shared on a regular basis as changes are made and updates provided.
The June 16th Board meeting will be conducted by video and phone due to restrictions on public meetings in California. Public comment will take place according to legal requirements at the 5:00 open session and the 6:00 open session as well as during actions items. The public can also email comments to the Superintendent at email@example.com to be during the appropriate time during the meeting. The agenda is available on the website under Departments-Board of Trustees.
All NHS sports and activities take place as a member of the Nevada Interscholastic Activities Association (NIAA). We are governed by their regulations as well as by the State of California and San Bernardino County as a California school district.
At this point, the NIAA has outlined their reopening of sports programs. California has not yet reopened youth sports but should do so soon. The District is working with the NIAA and California agencies to gain information so that we can develop our reopening plans. It is the goal of the District to offer all sports programs as allowable. More information should be available this next week.
Please be aware that this information may change regularly...
All schools will open on August 17th for students for the 2020-2021 school year. The California Department of Education (CDE) published their guidelines (see link below) this past week for districts to use to reopen schools. At this time, we are required by the California Department of Education (CDE) and the San Bernardino County Superintendent of Schools to develop 3 separate plans for school opening: A) All students return; B) Blended model with restrictions on how many can return at a time; and C) Online standards-based programs. District administration is working closely with the CDE, SB County office and the Dept of Public Health to determine fall programs that support learning in the safest environment. A parent survey will be out early this week to ask for input on all of these programs. We will work with teachers and staff to develop high-quality programs to support our students' learning.
Budget is available on display in the District Office.
This site provides a list of locations where children may receive free nutritious meals during school vacation and off-track periods. Please call site contact to confirm participation.
Eight grade promotion will take place in a drive through ceremony on 6/2 and 6/3 starting at 7:00 pm for Needles Middle School and Needles Community Day School. All promoting 8th graders have been contacted by the school and divided into 2 groups for these 2 evening programs. For the individual program, students will be promoted on a first come first serve basis. Families will be able to participate with a maximum of 2 vehicles (no motorhomes or trailers) and exit the car to take pictures from the Family Viewing Section directly in from of the stage.
