This is the latest follow up after the school board met last night in Executive Session regarding our Attendance Plan and the latest COVID developments in our region.  After reviewing the latest information the following decisions were affirmed:

  • NPUSC will continue to monitor the 7 day positive case rate per county but will use the new Indiana Dept. of Health Blue-Yellow-Orange-Red COVID color code system as our top COVID metric for our Attendance Plan.  When LaPorte/St. Joseph counties are in blue or yellow, NPUSC would be at 100% Attendance K-12 unless positive cases within NPUSC warrant more restrictive attendance plans.

Dear NPUSC Family,

This communication is a follow up to the NPUSC School Board meeting held on July 27th.  At that time it was determined NPUSC would begin school on the 50% Attendance Option on Thursday, August 13th.  The local and regional COVID situation is being monitored daily.  The NPUSC School Board will be meeting in executive session on Thursday, August 6th, to evaluate data and information related to our health/safety plan for returning to school.  If we are in fact able to proceed with the 50% Attendance Option on August 13th as planned at this time, the included communication explains in detail how the plan will work.  Look for a follow-up communication late next week, thank you
