Greetings Nob Hill Parents, Guardians and Community,
I hope that everyone has had a relaxing and enjoyable summer. I am excited about returning to Nob Hill and continue building and shaping our future leaders.
My primary focus remains the overall safety and health of the students and staff while demanding that all students receive consistent, rigorous, and exciting academic instruction. This year, we will be focusing on equity and what this looks like throughout daily instruction and interactions with students, staff, and parents/community members. Social Emotional Learning will continue to be part of the daily routine for staff and students: not only at designated times but interwoven throughout the day.
The following is general information regarding district and building policies, procedures, and expectations. COVID testing will be every Tuesday, via a quick oral swab; consent forms were part of the registration packet. Masks will be optional, but highly recommended. Parents/guardians are welcome to stay with their child/children during the first day of testing. The first day of school for pre-kindergarten students will be Tuesday, September 6, 2022. Pre-kindergarten students will report no earlier than the regular start time (8:20 a.m.) on their first day.

I am looking forward to continuing our partnership to ensure our children reach their highest potential. We recognize that to achieve this there needs to be support from both home and school and this partnership will make a significant difference in your child (s) education. As partners, we share in the success and struggles of our children and the staff of Nob Hill will do our best in carrying out our responsibilities.
Thank you in advance for reading this letter; I look forward to seeing everyone on August 24th!
Respectfully, Timothy Hurd
