Nativity of Our Lord School is a community of parents, teachers, staff, and parishioners committed to helping each student grow into the person God has called them to be through faith, academics, and character development.
Good Afternoon Nativity Families,
It's our last week of distance learning before students return next week for in-person learning, and we cannot wait to see everyone back at school next week! Thank you for working with us to help transition back all those that choose to participate with in-person learning. It takes all of us working together to keep our community safe and healthy. We know there is Covid fatigue, but there is hope on the horizon, and we ask everyone to continue to be vigilant in protecting our school community from an outbreak. If you traveled or were in large groups during this quarantine time from January 2-18, please be sure to quarantine and get tested 5-7 days after your gathering or upon returning home (even if you drove to your destination), and let us know if you need to delay your child’s return to in-person learning beyond January 19. If you are unsure if your family should quarantine/test before returning to campus please reach out to us at school, and we will be happy to talk through your situation with you to determine the next steps. Thank you for keeping the safety of our students, their families, and our faculty and staff in mind as you make decisions for your family.
  • January Lunch Menu:
    Please click here for the January lunch menu. Please note: all K-8 students will enjoy a pizza lunch on Friday, January 22nd - a gift from the Nativity Men's Club for the wreath sales this year. We look forward to celebrating our first week back to school after our time away completing distance learning.

  • 2021-2022 New Preschool and Kinder recruitment:
    We are entering a very exciting time here at school.  It's that time of year when those families with preschool and kindergarten-ready students are looking for a school. Our best referrals come from you - our parents and friends of Nativity! Please help us spread the word about our great school.  Invite your friends with young children to check out all that Nativity School has to offer!  Encourage them to call Nativity for more information and/or to set-up a virtual tour. Mary Jo Iverson helps manage all new family inquires, and we look forward to welcoming new families for the 2021-2022 school year.

  • Quarantine Updates and Planning for Spring Travel:
    In December, the CDC released some new guidelines regarding quarantine lengths and exposure to Covid. We also know some families are beginning to think about spring travel. Soon, the school will send out an update regarding the new quarantine rules and an update on travel and any quarantine guidelines/rules regarding travel over the next few months and how this will impact students/families at Nativity. 

  • Calendar Notes:
    As we return to school for in-person learning next week, some are looking ahead at the next few months. Here are some notes on the calendar to keep in mind:
    Catholic Schools Week will be in February this year. Stay tuned for more information, but we will spread out our celebration all month long instead of during one week.
