21-22 School Year Information

The NCSD Update for the Start of the 21-22 School Year.

The District Health and Safety Plan:

The plan can be found on the District Main Webpage. Two key points of the plan are:

  • Unless mandated, masks will be optional in school (other than on the bus).

  • Due to a federal mandate, masks must be worn on the buses to and from school.

Instructional Models Available:

  • The district is offering a face to face model.

  • The district cyber academy is an option for those not wanting face to face.

  • We are exploring the use of possible synchronous or Google Classroom for only those students quarantined by the school district.

Sapphire Student /Parent Portal:

The District Parent and Student Grade and Informational Portal has been upgraded, instructions for registration are found Under the “21-22 School Year Information” banner on the district webpage


All students will receive a Chromebook to be used during the school year. The district will offer two options for protection of the Chromebooks.

  • Parents can purchase insurance ($25 to $30) per year depending on the number of customers. The insurance covers accidental damages.

  • Parents can opt to not buy insurance, but needed repairs cannot be completed until payment is made in advance.

More information will be forthcoming and will be posted in the “Parent Resources” section of the webpage when it becomes available.


  • All Students will receive a Free Breakfast & Lunch- ALL FAMILIES are encouraged to complete the Free/Reduced applications as this helps the District qualify for other programs and additional funding.

  • Ala Carte will be available for purchase, please send money if your child wishes to purchase extras

  • The Cafeteria will continue to operate a cashless facility to minimize the person to person contact. Payments can be made online through school cafe or by placing payment in an envelope with the students name, grade and lunch number and placed in the designated locked box in their building.

  • All payments will be deposited daily

  • If you have questions please call the Food Service Director at 814-948-2670
