Northern Valley 2020 - 21 School Year

Ladies and Gentlemen,

There are many things that are still to be decided about the upcoming school year ... and many unforeseen things as well.

As we move forward, I just want to say that I appreciate everyone's input and feedback that we have received.  

It is a testament to the conviction and vested interest you have in our school and the safety of all our kids. 

Here is a school calendar attached that was adopted last night.  The start date was moved back one week to allow for cleaning and teaching supplies to arrive as well as give the teachers more time to collaborate and plan for this ever changing environment.

2020 - 21 School Calendar

Here are the results of the survey that was sent out via textcaster.

Survey Results

Taking this information into account .... Listening to state and local agencies on their recommendations ..... Using information from schools around our area ..... Getting input from out teachers and staff .... We have come up with a plan that will help guide us through this coming year. 

Granted .... there will be no plan that will answer ALL questions and / or scenarios .... however, we need a base on which to build.  This document has the ability to change as our situation changes. In our August board meeting .... we will continue to build on this focusing more on what classrooms may look like. 

Northern Valley Reopening

Once again .... thank you for your input, your patience, and your continued support of Northern Valley Schools.  These school buildings have MANY years of great history .... and MANY more still to be written. 


Ken Tharman

Superintendent / HS Principal
