School Closed February 8, 2019
According to the CDC, Virginia’s influenza activity level is currently designated as “widespread.” This includes confirmed cases of influenza as well as influenza-like illnesses (ILI). Over the last 24-hours, our levels of absenteeism have been increasing significantly. While our students, faculty and staff have been encouraged to take preventative actions to stop the spread of germs and our housekeeping staff has been diligent in deep cleaning surfaces and items of “frequent touch,” it has been difficult to stop the rapid spread of illness over the last 24-hours. To ensure that our students, faculty and staff have ample time to recover and to allow our housekeeping staff time to thoroughly disinfect our facilities, NSA will be closed on Friday, February 8.
All school activities scheduled for Friday and Saturday at NSA will be rescheduled and virtual learning will not be expected. Off campus athletic events on Saturday will take place as scheduled; however, parents should use their best judgment as to whether their child is well enough to participate.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation and for your understanding. As always, the health and wellness of our NSA community is our top priority. We hope that this short break will allow everyone to return to school on Monday morning rested and ready to learn!
