Nemo Vista School District Continuity of Services Plan

Updated October 12th, 2022

The Nemo Vista School District (NVSD) will review the Arkansas Department of Health (ADH) guidelines and the Arkansas Ready for Learning guidance issued by the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) in planning for the 2022-2023 school year. 

School districts are advised to continue practicing preventative to the extent practical.

The District’s goal is to continually provide our students with a highest quality education, while maximizing student safety.  The Continuity of Services Plan will outline how the district intends to achieve the aforementioned goals while adhering to the guidelines set by the ADH and DESE. 


Face Coverings - Face coverings are currently optional for all Nemo Vista Students and Staff.


Vaccinations- According to the Arkansas Dept. of Health (ADH) COVID-19 vaccines are the most effective strategy to protect people from getting sick and to reduce the risk of people spreading COVID-19. Students who are ages 5 and older are now eligible to receive the Pfizer vaccination.  Eligible students and families interested in receiving a COVID-19 vaccination should contact their local health care provider for more information. 

Close Contact Determination - The CDC is no longer identifying close contacts within school districts.


Quarantine Guidelines- Current CDC guidance recommends individuals testing positive for Covid-19 to isolate for five days.

Screening - The Nemo Vista School District will ask that parents please screen their child for illness prior to sending your child to school each day.  It is recommended that parents screen their child for fever and any other symptoms associated with COVID-19 prior to sending their child to school each day. 

Sanitization - Sanitation and cleanliness will be a high priority for our district.  We have added additional equipment and supplies to clean high touch surfaces.  Additional hand sanitizing stations will be located throughout the campus and students will be prompted to utilize the hand sanitizer regularly. Additionally, each classroom and the cafeteria will be fitted with an air and surface pathogen reduction device.  

Transportation- NVSD will continue to provide bus transportation for the 2022-2023 school year.  Students may sit in assigned seats and students from the same household may be asked to sit together in order to minimize exposure.

COVID19 Point of Contact (POC) - Nurse Amanda Morrow will serve as the NVSD COVID POC for the 2022-2023 school year.  If you have questions or need to report a COVID positive case please reach out to Mrs. Morrow as soon as possible.  The following are options for communication with the POC.

  1. Call your child’s school building and ask to be transferred to the COVID POC (normal school hours only)
  2. Email Mrs. Morrow directly at amorrow.nemo.k12.ar.us

Extracurricular Activities – NVSD will follow all guidelines set by the Arkansas Department of Health, Division of Elementary and Secondary Education, and Arkansas Activities Association in regards to sports and other extracurricular activities.  At this time we anticipate extracurricular activities continuing throughout the 2022-2023 school with minimal restriction. 

Academic Achievement – The Nemo Vista School District takes great pride in the academic success of all students.  However, we also understand there may have been interruptions in the educational process for many students in the previous years.  It is our goal to not only minimize these interruptions moving forward, but also to overcome any potential learning loss that may have occurred as a result.  The following are a few examples of how NVSD plans overcome learning loss and ensure academic achievement for all students.

  • Purchasing of new reading curriculum for elementary students
  • Providing additional one on one tutoring for students
  • Reducing class size
  • Addition of Reading Interventionist
  • Offering summer school options

School Closure - It is the goal of NVSD to maintain in-person learning opportunities for all students throughout the 2022-2023 school year.  However, we understand that certain situations may cause the district or certain schools within the district to pivot to off-campus instruction.  In the event of a school or district wide pivot NVSD will utilize both asynchronous and synchronous digital instruction methods to ensure a high quality education persists.  As instruction methods for off-site learning may vary across NVSD, your child’s teacher or principal will be releasing information regarding the process of off-site learning.
