More information will be shared in the upcoming days with specifics on food and paperwork deliveries. Our CVES and CV-Tech students will still attend their classes in-person and we will be providing the same transportation as we are now.

Elementary Memory Books Are Here! Please be on the look-out for your child’s 2019-20 Memory Book (yearbook) which is being sent home this week. Each one has been labeled with the student’s name in an effort to help them keep better track of their book. In the past we have had issues with students losing, misplacing, or having their book stolen, so please help your child to take care of his/her book as we cannot replace them. Also, for those who may still want to buy one, we have a limited number of copies left. You may send in cash or a check for $18.00 made out to “NACS” if you would like to purchase one. Enjoy reliving the memories!
The Elementary students are picking pumpkins! Thanks to Reyell's Farm Stand, each NAC Elementary student will be bringing home a pumpkin from our very own "pumpkin patch!"
