Welcome Back Students!

Hello NRCS Families,

NRCS staff is excited to welcome back our students after such a long time. We would like to ensure you that we have a detailed plan around Covid-19 procedures to support the return of all students and staff.

We have  PDF link below of our plan so that you can read and prepare your child on what to expect upon their return. We have also included in this email, some highlights families should be aware of as well. Please refer to the detailed plan or contact the school if you have further questions.

See you Tuesday, September 8th!
