Don’t forget if you have a medical or religious exemption form you’re good to go too!

I’m done! Also, if people need help with internet access the library has 24/7 free wifi, and I am here most days to help in person as well.

When will we know who their teachers are? I did the registration but it only had their teachers from last year. TY

We’re we suppose to get a registration packet ??

We haven't recieved a registration packet either ... is that where we find out how to register online?

I have not received a registration packet for my kindergartner...

I still haven’t received a registration packet yet.

Can you provide a link?

NLCSD LIVE: School Board Meeting ... See MoreSee Less

Going to agree w Mr. Wahls etc, volleyball girls wanted warm up jackets and wanted their names and to keep them, so us parents paid for them so the girls didn’t have to turn them back in. So not fair one team gets theirs paid for and gets to keep them, and another team pays for them so can keep them.

Wow, I guess after listening to all this regarding the Activities Office, that I'm glad to be done as the AD. I would think that since the current job description used for the position of AD only requires a High School diploma, and lists only a very few, and very general duties in comparison to what is actually being absorbed by this position, that a new job description might be beneficial in clarifying the role, responsibilities, and expectations the District/Board really is looking for from that person. I would think that every position would have a job description that is relevant and somewhat up to date.

FYI. There is a buzzing noise tat makes it hard to hear.

Just tuned in. Thanks for helping clean up after storm. Good bunch right here.

The smartest people on the planet have yet to answer the question of how best fight COVID 19 safely. Glad to see and hear New London HS’s plan. They figured it out!Go figure. 👍👨‍🎓👩🏻‍🎓🤔

When will the return to learn plan be out on social??

Nicole Smith I’m wondering the same thing

Why are there no social distancing or masks at this meeting?

For elementary students, is a face shield only ok? My son will be in kindergarten and the few times he has had to wear a mask, it has been everywhere but on his face correctly. I have ordered one for both kids as I feel they will be more comfortable for an all day wear rather than a mask.

Will the plan be announced today?

When will we know what the plan is?????????

Tonight's Regional Semi-Final game location has been moved to North Mahaska at 7 PM.

There were several factors that went into the location of this game. Here is a note from the Iowa Girls High School Athletic Union detailing how the decision was made.

"North Mahaska will host New London in the 1A Region 6 Regional Semi on July 17 at 7 p.m. There was no head to head, both teams were 1-1 against common opponents so it came down to overall winning percentage. North Mahaska 10-7 (.588) vs. New London 8-6 (.571)."

Let's get out tonight and support our team at North Mahaska.

Fans should bring their own chairs or be prepared to stand as some of the seating areas are blocked off to assist with Social Distancing.

Thanks again for being patient!

Tonight's high school softball game versus Danville has been canceled and will not be made up. Following Union rules and regulations, this game will be deemed a forfeit by the visiting team, as the game could have been played. We understand that schools will have concerns surrounding Covid-19 and the mitigation process that each school takes. Again, we have no softball player to date that has tested positive for Covid-19 and have no concern with any of our players. Below are our procedures that we developed with the Henry County Public Health team for testing and quarantining individuals due to COVID-19.

1. Untested. Persons who have not received a test proving or disproving the presence of COVID-19 but experience symptoms may return if the following four conditions are met:
a. They have not had a fever for at least 72 hours (that is three full days of
no fever without the use of medicine that reduces fevers); and
b. Other symptoms have improved (for example, when your cough or
shortness of breath have improved); and
c. At least ten (10) calendar days have passed since your symptoms first
appeared.
d. A student/athlete will be excluded from practice and competition according to the guidelines stated above unless proof of a negative
COVID-19 test is provided to the school.

2. Tested positive with symptoms. Persons who experience symptoms and have
tested positive for COVID-19 may return to practice/competition if the following three
conditions are met:
a. They no longer have a fever for at least 72 hours (that is three full days of
no fever without the use of medicine that reduces fevers); and
b. Other symptoms have improved (for example, when your cough or
shortness of breath have improved); and
c. At least 10 days have passed since their symptoms first appeared.

3. Tested positive with no symptoms. Persons who test positive for COVID-19
but do not experience symptoms should self-isolate until:
a. At least ten (10) calendar days have passed since the date of the first positive test; and
b. They continue to have no symptoms (for example, no cough or shortness of breath) since the test.

4. Tested negative. Persons with symptoms of COVID-19 who are tested and test negative can go back to daily activities 24 hours after their fever and other symptoms have subsided.

5. Tested Negative. Persons with symptoms of COVID-19 who are tested and test negative, but were in direct contact with a positive COVID-19 case must quarantine 14 days from the latest date in which you came in direct contact with the person with the positive case.

What about youth league softball are those games still being played?

Covid-19 Softball update,

This morning we received news from the family of our student athlete that their daughter’s test results came back negative. This is great news for our athlete, family and community. We know that this year will be very trying at different times and we must lean on the professionals and data that will help guide us in our decision-making process. What we found from several hours of conversations yesterday with both the Girls Union and the Henry County Health Department is that we need to act on each case individually. The Girls Union reported that 20 schools have dealt with a Covid-19 case thus far this season. Out of those 20 school 15 have continued to play their season without quarantine because they have practiced social distancing at all times, sanitized properly, and adhered to all other protocols. The Girls Union also shared that out of all 20 schools there has not yet been a case of player to player transmission. Our district’s leaders, coaches, players, families, and community need to be recognized for working together to keep every person safe.

There is no “one size fits all” policy or practice that a School District can adopt and put into place to stop this virus. However, we as a district and community need to take preventative measures to control it the best we can. It is important to make sure we continue to practice the guidelines that have been set for us all. With this in mind we will continue to monitor our expectations during practices and games, so we are ensuring the safest environment for everyone. We have been in contact with our opposing team for tonight’s game and we have agreed to play ball.

Sincerely,

Chad Wahls & Ben Fry

From West Burlington Activities Director - Jeff Housel regarding tonight's (7/2) Baseball Game:

In addition to the state's COVID-19 guidelines we will have separate entries for West Burlington and New London. West Burlington spectators will sit in the along the 3rd base and left field side and use the bathrooms attached to the pressbox. New London spectators will sit along the 1st base and right field side and use the bathrooms in the admin building beyond the right field fence.

Only designated players from the defensive team will retrieve foul balls and return to the defensive dugout. West Burlington varsity players will stretch and throw on the practice football field at 6:30 PM and New London players will be allowed to stretch and throw at 6:45 PM.

After the JV game we will take infield followed by New London then we will do a brief senior night presentation, starting lineups and national anthem.

New London Community School District

In light of the recent news regarding a positive case of Covid-19 in a teenager here in New London, we are making the following decisions. These decisions have been made in correspondence with the Henry County Health Department, Iowa Girls High School Athletic Union, and parents.

We have had one softball player come into close contact with a summer non-athlete/student that has recently tested positive. This player has been recently tested and is waiting on their results. To take extra precautions we have postponed our softball game with West Burlington until next Thursday, July 9, 2020. Upon receipt of the results being negative or positive the school will work with the Henry County Health Department to determine the future of the season.

We have interviewed the two students and their parents to help make further decisions as well. These families have taken it upon themselves to self-quarantine their other siblings from participating in youth baseball/softball until their 14 days are complete or a negative test is provided.

Through our review we found no information that would support needing to make any changes or regulations to our baseball program. Tonight they will travel to West Burlington to play.

Please understand that providing information is important, but upholding students and families privacy and confidentiality is even more important. We will continue to provide the most accurate information when dealing with Covid-19 situations throughout the year. We thank you in advance for your respect and patience in these matters.

Sincerely,

Mr. Wahls & Ben Fry
