Safety Procedures for Monday morning

 

On Monday morning, we will be experiencing a solar eclipse.  NVIS wants to remind students that while we are excited about this opportunity, we want to make sure that our students are safe.  

 

For students that have class on Monday, we want to remind students that classes are continuing as normal.  At the end of each session, we will need all students to refrain from viewing the eclipse unless they have approved ISO solar eclipse glasses.  

 

NASA recommends that people who plan to view the eclipse should check the safety authenticity of viewing glasses to ensure they meet basic proper safety viewing standards.

 

Eclipse viewing glasses and handheld solar viewers should meet all the following criteria:

 

·      Have certification information with a designated ISO 12312-2 international standard

·      Have the manufacturer’s name and address printed somewhere on the product

·      Not be used if they are older than three years, or have scratched or wrinkled lenses

·      Not use homemade filters

·      Ordinary sunglasses -- even very dark ones -- should not be used as a replacement for eclipse viewing glasses or handheld solar viewers

Our board, faculty and staff welcome you to many joyful learning experiences for your child.

 

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. This year, the Board added a fourth goal to ensure that social-emotional learning and healthy living are integrated system-wide. 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.

 

Here's to a joyful and productive year!

 

Patrick
