COVID-19 Closure Update. NMS is working on providing supplemental instruction to students during the school closure. We will be making contact with families following spring break and staff will be preparing resources for at home learning. Keep an eye out for updates.
School Closure Update
Our school closure has been extended to April 28. After spring break our teachers will be adapting their courses to a temporary online format using google classroom, Zoom, online textbooks, edgenuity, and/or other online resources. We are fully committed to adjusting and providing the support needed for all students to earn credit and for our seniors to graduate on time.
According to Governor Brown's mandate to close schools, all school districts must offer to provide childcare services for health care providers, policemen, and first responders. If you are in one of these categories and need help with childcare, please notify the Nyssa School District. We have personnel and facilities available to help!
The Governor announced yesterday that schools will remain closed through April 28, 2020. We are developing plans to provide education to our students. The highest priority will be given to current Seniors so that they can meet all graduation requirements, but all children will receive instruction. Also, students will get daily food from March 30-April 28 at different locations around town. We will post these locations soon. This is for all youth 18 years and younger. More information to follow.

Senior Zayn Parker’s senior project was to organize and run a sporting event and he choose a volleyball tournament.... 6 teams signed up to compete. One team, in particular, had the odds stacked against them, that team was the STAFF INFECTION!! For days the other teams talked trash to them, told them things like, “easy dub!” “Old folks home” and laughed in their face....but the ‘STAFF INFECTION’ , underdogs by all accounts, walked right through every team they played!!! The STAFF INFECTION is your NHS Senior Project tournament champions!!! #nhs #staffinfection #champions

Mr. Sapp’s 10th graders took a field trip to the Warhawk Air museum in Nampa Idaho today and had the pleasure of meeting a living legend Mr. Ernie Ferguson. His platoon’s mission was to create a landing strip on an island in Japan. During this mission there were over 20,000 US soldier wounded or killed. Ernie made it! And he took the time to talk to us and shake our hands!! Thank you for your service Mr. Ferguson!
