MARCH 23, 2020 COVID-19 LETTER FROM HOS

Dear NSCS Families,

As many of you already know Governor Baker has issued a stay-at-home advisory to begin Tuesday, March 24th until Tuesday, April 7th, and as the Coronavirus continues to make its presence among us known in new and more significant ways, we will continue to trust God with all things. Trusting God doesn’t mean we ignore what is happening around us, but it does mean that we deliberately choose to put our hope in a living God whose promises are amen and amen in Christ Jesus.

As NSCS looks at current trending in our nation, it is realistic to say that it is highly unlikely that we will be resuming school on April 8th as previously stated. I will communicate in greater detail any further prolonged school closures as soon as a concrete decision has been made. Additionally, our Deans will also clearly communicate to our parents what the implications of a further prolonged school closure will entail in way of at-home school. We recognize the challenge that at-home schooling may cause for some of our families, especially those parents/guardians who are also trying to balance working remotely from home, as well as overseeing their child/ren’s school work. I want to reiterate again that all of our teachers are here to support you and your particular needs to the very best of their ability. Please keep the lines of communication open between you and your child/ren’s teachers – we are all on the same team!

Please continue to send pictures and videos of your children so that we can post them in the newsletters and on our Facebook. Seeing the children’s faces in the newsletters has brought me such joy! While we are apart physically, you and your children are never far from my thoughts.

To the right is a picture from this morning. I had the pleasure of sitting in our Lynn Campus’s Teachers Meeting via Zoom. As is the case for each meeting, our teachers end their time in prayer. We prayed for the school, one another, our communities, our country, and the world. We prayed that God would use all things, including the Coronavirus, for His glory!

Continue to trust God, be good to each other – love big, forgive often, and encourage always.

Love,
Pam Heintz, Head of School
