Quarantine Update

Quarantine Update 9-2-2021


Thank you for a great start to the school year. It is essential that the school corporation and the community continue to work together to address the ever-changing needs of our students. Throughout the COVID pandemic, Central Noble has worked hard to continue to address the academic, physical and social needs of the students. Throughout the process we have continually looked to improve the quality and effectiveness of everything we do. The support of parents and the community has been critical in this process. Your continued support will help us progress toward the end of this pandemic.

Through the diligent efforts of the nursing staff, administrators, teachers, and support staff, we have been able to provide inperson instruction to our students. While quarantines are difficult for parents and families, they have helped to reduce the spread of COVID within the school environment. To maintain a mask optional environment, contact tracing and quarantines are mandated at this time. Please be reminded that this is not something that the school staff wants to do. Please treat the staff with respect and allow them to work with you to get the students back into the school setting as quickly as possible.

Central Noble continues to evaluate the guidance and recommendation of the state and local health department to determine if changes in current protocol need to be implemented. In a recent memo from the Indiana State Department of Health, Dr. Box authorized the use of clinically administered rapid antigen tests (BINAXNow) to determine quarantine and return to school. This change now allows families 3 options for early return. Early return is not an option for students with a COVID positive patient in their household.

**Day 8 Return (Rapid Test) – This option is available for students who are asymptomatic and do not live in the same household as a COVID positive patient. The BINAXNow antigen test must be administered on day 7 or after in a clinical setting such as a testing site, pharmacy, doctor's office, hospital, or clinic. Home tests may not be used.

**Day 8 Return (PCR) – This option is available for all quarantined students that do not have a COVID Positive patient in the same household. The PCR test must be administered on day 5 or after. All symptomatic students will be required to receive a negative PCR test to return early.

Welcome Back to School

We are looking forward to students and families returning to the building next week.  Staff has been working hard to create a learning environment that is designed to meet the ever-changing needs of the students and the community.  We have implemented many curricular and facility changes to help enhance the educational experiences of the students.  Class lists and schedules for students can be accessed through the PowerSchool portal.  If you are unable to access the parent portal in PowerSchool, please contact the office staff at your child’s school. 

As we return next week, we will be mask optional for staff and students while in the building.  Due to a federal mandate on public transportation, masks are required on the school bus.  The administration and school board will continue to monitor state and local levels, while evaluating guidance from the CDC, the State Department of Health and the Noble County Department of Health to help inform decision making as we begin the school year.  Central Noble will be contact tracing school exposures and quarantining students who are deemed close contacts.  Quarantine requirements will be similar to last school year.  The biggest change is that vaccinated staff and students (proof required) will not be required to quarantine.   Please be reminded that the department of health mandates quarantines.  If you receive a phone call about quarantines form the nursing or administrative staff, please remember that they are not doing it because they want to, they are doing it because they have to in order to keep kids healthy and in school.  If you would like additional information about the current status of the pandemic, quarantine requirements, vaccines, or symptoms of COVID-19, please go to the Indiana State Department of Health web site at the link below.

https://www.coronavirus.in.gov/2400.htm

If your child is ill, please keep them home.  It is important to keep school exposures to a minimum in order to continue in-person instruction.  If you have a question about whether or not your child should attend school, please keep them home and contact the school office during regular business hours.  Your support through this process appreciated.

Open houses are scheduled for Monday (JSHS - 4:30 to 6:30) and Tuesday (CN Elem and CN Primary – 4:30 to 6:30).  Please plan to make a visit to your child’s school.  Student devices will be distributed to students on the first day of school.  If you wish to purchase insurance on the device, you will be able to do so at the open house.  For families that are unable to attend the open house, there will be insurance paperwork sent home with students on Wednesday.  The insurance paperwork and payment will due back to the school by Friday, August 20.  If families need to make payment arrangements, please contact the school office.

CN Moves to Messaging/Alerting System

We are proud to announce our transition to SwiftK12 for our new Messaging/Alerting system to families!!

SwiftK12 allows parents/guardians to control their own messaging preferences within their Powerschool Parent Portal.  Parents now have a tab within their account to manage their preferences and make changes real-time.  There is no longer a need to call into the school to update a phone number or email address or to be removed from text messaging and wait 24 hours for the change to take effect.  

This also encourages our families to utilized their Powerschool Parent Portal for more than just registration each year.  The portal contains vital information throughout the school and will eventually be the only way to access report cards for all grade levels.  Families can also view class schedules/teacher assignements, fees due and much more!!

The document below is a quick tutorial on how to manage messaging preferences.  We encourage you to take a look today!

We're excited about this transition and hope that it increases the lines of communication with our families!

CN Going Virtual 12/14/2020

December 10, 2020

Thank you for your continued support of Central Noble Schools. This year has been difficult for students, staff, parents, and families. Over the past several weeks, Central Noble has worked hard to provide quality instruction in a safe and caring learning environment. The staff and administrators continue to strive to provide in-person options for students. Throughout this time, we have been forced to utilize short-term closures in all or part of the buildings due to the inability to provide sufficient staffing.

Over the past several days, Central Noble has had several additional staff members and students quarantined due to contact tracing. The number of positive cases within the school building remains low. Please continue to practice good hygiene, social distance where possible, and wear a mask where not possible. Also, please continue to pre-screen your students before they arrive at school or participate in activities outside of the school. If you have questions about your child’s health, please contact the school nurse or your health care provider. Please be reminded that the school nurses are working hard to implement the contact tracing and quarantine protocols that are being handed down by the district administration, as well as, the county and state health department. This is a difficult job and I ask for your grace and support as they work through the process. This is not something that they want to do, but rather something they have been required to do. Please keep this in mind as we continue through the school year. They are working very hard to keep your child safe and the school buildings open.

Last week, the CDC and the ISDH provided quarantine options for staff and students to return to school after a shortened quarantine and/or a negative test. At this time, under the recommendation of Dr. Gaff, we have not implemented the new quarantine options. There are logistical stipulations tied to implementation that would add additional responsibilities to building staff, as well as mask and social distancing requirements for the person returning. We have hopes of implementing the new procedures as we return in January.

Unfortunately, the significant number of staff quarantines continues to make it difficult to provide quality instruction within a safe environment. At this time, I must announce that Central Noble Schools will move to distance learning for all students for the final week of the semester, Monday, December 14 through Friday, December 18. The intent is to return to in-person instruction on Monday, January 4. Tomorrow, the teaching staff will send home the necessary resources for students to complete the at-home instruction. Each building will communicate student expectations to families. It is critical that students complete assignments and assessments in a timely manner as we work to finalize grades for quarter 1.

Temporary Closure at the Jr/Sr High Building

December 2, 2020

Central Noble Schools continues to work hard to provide quality instruction in a safe learning environment.  District administration continually monitors staffing to ensure that we can meet the ever-changing needs of our students, staff, and community. At this time, the significant number of staff quarantines at the Junior-Senior High building will require us to move to Virtual Learning for Thursday, December 3, and Friday, December 4. The move to virtual will be for Junior and Senior High School students only. Additional information will be sent out by the administration later today. Elementary and primary students will continue to attend classes in the traditional setting.

Building Access for Connectivity and Support
The Junior-Senior High building will remain open for all non-quarantined students who do not have internet connectivity at home, do not have sufficient parental support at home during the school day, or need additional help within the classroom setting. All non-quarantined staff member will be present in the school building throughout the day to provide supervision and support.

Food Service
Lunch will be served to the students who choose to come to the school setting. A link will be sent out this afternoon through social media and the corporation web site if Junior-Senior High parents would like to schedule a pick-up for carry-out school lunch packs.

Impact and Extra-Curricular Activities
Impact students are expected to attend classes as usual. Transportation will be provided to and from Impact.

All extra-curricular events and practices will continue as scheduled.

Transportation
Bus routes will run on the normal schedule for all primary/elementary students and any junior senior high students that will be utilizing the school facilities. Junior-Senior High Students who choose to utilize the school building for Internet access or support should report to the cafeteria. 

This is a temporary closure of the Junior-Senior High building only. It is the intent of the district to return all students to the traditional setting on Monday, December 7. If you have questions about this closure, please contact the district or building administration.

Thank you for the continued support of Central Noble Schools.
