NDA Weather Make-Up Plan 2018-19
Dear NDA Families,

Thank you for your patience and understanding during this unusual severe weather we've had this winter. The safety of our students and employees is of utmost importance to us at NDA. Due to the weather-related cancellations, NDA must make up instructional minutes as required by the State of Wisconsin.

Below you will find the plan for NDA to make up these minutes. At this time, we do not plan to add on to the end of the year. We will instead add five minutes to each day beginning Monday, February 25. No changes in the bus schedule are necessitated by these adjustments, and the lunch periods will be reduced from 29 to 27 minutes.

Starting Monday, February 25,
school will begin at 7:58 a.m. and end at 3:18 p.m.

Full School Days
The following days will now be full school days. These dates were previously scheduled as early release or no school days.
  • Thursday, March 28
  • Friday, March 29
  • Thursday, May 2
  • Friday, May 3
  • Tuesday, May 21

Second Semester Exams
The new second semester exam schedule will be:

  • Wednesday, May 22 - the day will end at 1:40 p.m.
  • Thursday, May 23 - the day will end at 1:40 p.m.
  • Friday, May 24 - the day will end at 11:05 a.m.

Daily Prayer
In reflecting upon the changes in schedule, we have decided to add daily, midday community prayer time. Myriad religious orders recommend a midday prayer to reflect upon how we have passed our morning together and ask God's grace on the remainder of the day. Fr. Christian Raj, NDA chaplain, will lead the NDA community in prayer over the loudspeaker each day at the end of 4th period. Morning prayer will still take place to begin the day.

Once again, thank you for your understanding as we deal with this severe winter weather. Please let me know if you have any questions.

God Bless,

Patrick Browne
