Pandas Return to Campus Plan

Notre Dame Academy has developed a Pandas Return to Campus Plan to safely welcome our students back to campus for the 2020-21 school year. 

To that end, NDA has put together a 2020-21 School Planning Team with several subcommittee members to ensure the necessary health and safety measures are in place prior to the return of our students. This group includes NDA leaders in administration, technology, facilities, finance and communications along with medical professionals from within our NDA community. These dedicated professionals, along with their committee members, are closely following guidelines provided to us by the CDC, NKY Health Department, the Kentucky Department of Education and the Diocese of Covington. They are also taking into consideration all of the data collected from our recent parent surveys as well as input from faculty, staff and students. 

As the COVID-19 situation is constantly evolving, our 2020-21 School Planning Team is putting together three plans for the upcoming school year: 

  • Plan 1 - Traditional Learning @ NDA:  Full return to school with safety precautions in place

  • Plan 2 - Blended Learning @ NDA: Combination of online and in person classes to reduce the number of students at school 

  • Plan 3 - Remote Learning @ NDA: Full remote learning
At this point in time, we are following Plan 1 with a full return of everyone to school for the 2020-21 school year with safety precautions in place. Our first day of school will be Monday, August 17 with only juniors and seniors reporting to school that day. Only freshmen and sophomores will report on Tuesday, August 18. All students will report to school on Wednesday, August 19. Here are some important dates for the start of the 2020-21 school year:

August 5 Parent Night videos sent to parents
August 10   Freshman Orientation
August 17   Juniors and Seniors report to school
August 18   Freshmen and Sophomores report to school
August 19   All students report to school

Additional information regarding our health and safety policies for the upcoming school year can be found in our Pandas Return to Campus Plan. This document includes important information about precautions we are taking on campus this school year to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. You can also find information regarding our healthy policies and protocols regarding a possible coronavirus diagnosis within our NDA community. 

We will also share information regarding our Back to School Parent Nights via email on August 5. 

We appreciate the cooperation of our entire NDA community throughout these challenging times. As we move forward, please know that our goal is to protect the health and wellbeing of our students, faculty and staff while continuing to meet our responsibility to educate our students. Thank you for partnering with us in your daughter’s Catholic education.

Questions about NDA's Pandas Return to Campus Plan? 
Thank you for partnering with us for the 2020-21 school year. If you have any questions about the NDA Return to Campus Plan, please submit them HERE. We will be providing answers to the questions we receive within the next two weeks.

Remote Learning Request Form:
Families who choose to join school remotely must request remote learning for their daughter with a Remote Learning Request Form by August 7, 2020. This decision will be reevaluated after the first two weeks of the school year and parents can then make a decision regarding in person or remote learning for their daughter for the remainder of the quarter. Families will be asked at the end of the first quarter what they would like to do for the 2nd quarter.
