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 Morning Nativity Families, 
This is a big week for our eighth graders as they take steps to grow in their faith journey.  Our eighth graders will complete their final preparations for their Confirmation this Saturday and Sunday at Nativity.  Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers as they receive this sacrament and continue on their journey to becoming adults in the Catholic Church. They will begin this important weekend with a Vigil this Friday evening in the upper church; it is a beautiful prayer experience for our young people.

As COVID cases continue to rise drastically across the state, we have a few important reminders as it relates to minimizing exposure at school. Everyone doing their part will limit the risk factors for all.
  1. Please review the Covid decision tree for a list of common and less common symptoms.
  2. If anyone inside your home is exhibiting symptoms, please be sure to keep everyone in the household home until the person is evaluated by a doctor and is given an alternate diagnosis and/or the symptomatic person has received a negative test result. 
  3. If anyone inside your family is waiting on test results and that person is symptomatic, please keep everyone home until the test results come back. If the results are negative for that family member, then the others may return to school unless there has been a direct exposure.  Direct exposures require a 14-day quarantine, and a person cannot test out of quarantine.
  4. Please have your child check to make sure they have a back-up mask(s) in their backpack. We are noticing a large number of students forgetting their mask at home and are handing out many disposable masks each day. 
  5. As always, if you are unsure, or have questions, please don't hesitate to call the front office.  We are happy to help you and answer any questions you have.

  • After School Pick-up:
    Parents, please be mindful to leave the school grounds immediately after pick-up. We respectfully ask that families do not gather and socialize on the plaza after school or let their child(ren) play on the school playground following dismissal. We ask for everyone's cooperation so that we can minimize the risk of Covid. Thank you for your attention to this important time of potential exposure during the day.

  • Fall Parent/Teacher Conferences:
    Conferences are Tuesday, November 17th and Thursday, November 19th from 1:00-8:00 P.M.  There will be an early-release on both Tuesday, November 17th, and Thursday, November 19th at 11:30 A.M.  Fall conferences for PreK - 8th grade will be virtual this year.  Information regarding the procedures and how to register for your time slot was sent out last week.

  • Return of Colder Weather
    It looks like the cold weather is coming back this week and will be here to stay.  Please remember to have your child dress with a warm jacket, hats, mittens, and boots if needed so that they are able to enjoy their time outside at recess.
