***This letter will also be coming home with students***
Dear Parents/Guardians:

The Iowa Statewide Assessment of Student Progress (ISASP) are new assessments developed by Iowa Testing Programs at the University of Iowa for the State of Iowa. The assessments are aligned with the Iowa Core standards and provide a clear and accurate assessment of student learning outcomes. Student growth, proficiency, and readiness indicators will be reported. These tests will be taking the place of what was formerly known as “Iowa Assessments."

The new assessments will be administered next week and will be online for grades 3-11. The grade levels and tests being administered are provided below:
Tests Grade Levels
Reading 3-11
Language and Writing 3-11
Mathematics 3-11
Science 5, 8, and 11

We hope to use the data obtained from these assessments to identify students’ strengths and identify areas that may need additional emphasis. The assessments produce information that will enable sound decision making and provide a focus for teachers to evaluate their instruction.

All of the students grades 3-11 have practiced taking the online tests and have shown great determination to do their best. Please speak to your child about doing their best next week as well, and showing us all they’ve got on these new assessments!

-get a good night’s sleep
-eat a healthy breakfast
-be on time each day
-don’t stress about the test

Proposed Budget Tax Rates!

On Monday night, the Board of Education worked to establish the proposed budget for the 2019 – 2020 fiscal year. The priority was to establish a budget that would help reduce the property tax rate. After much discussion and working through the budget process, the district is excited to show a significant drop in the property tax rate from the past several years. For the first time since 2013, the constituents of New London will see a tax rate under the $17.00 mark; to be exact we have set our tax rate at $16.86 which is $.70 lower than last year’s rate. Our goal is to continually take a close look at our financial status and make responsible decisions that are best for our students, school, and community. Together we continue to make New London a great place to live and educate our children. Please reference the New London Journal this week for a more in depth look at our proposed budget.

Yours in Education,

Chad Wahls

Dear Parent/Guardian,

Please be aware that there have been confirmed cases of influenza in our school district. Influenza is an infection of the nose, throat, and lungs cause by the influenza virus. Someone with influenza can be contagious one day prior to having any symptoms and can remain contagious for up to 5-7 days after symptoms arise.

Common symptoms of influenza include:
• Fever or feeling feverish/chills
• Cough
• Runny or stuffy nose
• Sore throat
• Muscle/body aches
• Headaches
• Fatigue
• Sometimes vomiting and diarrhea may occur with the above symptoms

The influenza virus is spread mainly through coughing, sneezing and simply by talking. It is important to practice good hand hygiene and be sure to cover our coughs and sneezes. Try to avoid others who are ill and keep your hands away from your eyes, nose, and mouth. It is important to get plenty of sleep, eat balanced meals and drink adequate amounts of water. If you have not, it is suggested by the CDC for anyone over the age of 6 months to obtain a flu shot.

The health and safety of our children here at New London Community School District are of primary concern to the staff. In order for your child to be fully available for learning, they must be in good health while at school. Please keep your child home until they have been fever free for at least 24 hours without the use of fever reducing medications (tylenol, ibuprofen, advil, motrin, aleve, etc). If your child has had vomiting or diarrhea, please keep them home until at least 24 hours after the last episode. Keeping your child home when ill helps them heal faster and can help prevent the spread of illness to others. If we all work together, at home and school, we will make a difference in the lives of our children.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me by phone (319) 367-0507 or by email at lindy.williams@nlcsd.org.

On Wednesday, May 8, 2019, New London Community School District is continuing the spring tradition of cleaning up our community. Our students and staff would like to give back to the community that gives us so much support during the year. Students in grades K-12 are seeking opportunities to help community members in need of completing outside tasks, such as yard work, basic maintenance/clean up, window washing/decorating, preparing areas for spring planting, and the like. All homeowners and businesses must supply clean-up materials and city approved bags for yard waste disposal.

If you know of businesses, community areas, or community members in need of assistance during this day, please contact the New London High School office at 319-367-0500 or Kim.Wagner@nlcsd.org.
