7TH GRADE BASEBALL/SOFTBALL INFORMATION

There have been a lot of questions over the past week regarding 7th grade students and the opportunity to play baseball or softball this summer. Through the proclamations by the Governor we have been told that there will be no Junior High summer sports. It has also been stated that School Districts are not permitted to be associated with the establishment of a team that goes against these proclamations.

The rules and regulations regarding graduated 8th graders allow for all 8th grade student-athletes to move up to the High School level of competition. K-6 grades are included in the New London Little League Association. This has created a scenario in which our 7th grade students are completely left out of competition this summer.

With the re-opening of youth sports in the State of Iowa, our Little League Association was able to begin registration for K-6 grade students. The New London Community School District has been in communication with not only New London’s Little League Association, but also the area school districts and little leagues to gather information on what others are doing for their 7th grade students. We as a district do not want any student-athlete to lose the opportunity to participate this summer because we do not have the ability to provide them a team.

With all this being said, the New London CSD has been working with the New London Little League Association to develop a new age bracket for a 7th grade “Town Team”. This team will be represented by our current 7th grade students who would have been playing in our Junior High program this summer. The information on the schedule and logistics are still being worked out. However, I’d like to say that this 7th grade league that is being developed between the area Little League and Babe Ruth programs will aim to follow the same rules and regulations as a regular Junior High scheduled program. i.e. stealing, leading-off, etc. The games will be played on the High School fields. Also, in communicating with area associations this 7th grade team could have anywhere between 15-20 games scheduled this season if all of the teams that are planning to play, (if they have the appropriate numbers) which would in fact be equivalent to their regularly scheduled Junior High season if not more.

In summation, the New London Little League is asking all 7th grade boys and girls who are interested in playing in this league, please attend one of the two registration dates at the diamonds. They are May 28 & 29 from 5:00 – 8:00 pm. There will be a cost of $35 for each student because be the program will be running through the Little League.

If anyone has any additional questions, please contact the Little League Association, or Activities Director Ben Fry at the High School.

2020 Graduation:
As we continue to navigate the challenges of Covid-19, our goal has always been to make sure our students were able to participate in as many activities as possible. We are excited to announce that we are moving forward with our graduation plans. Our plan is to have our 2020 New London Graduation Ceremony on our football field at 8 p.m. on Saturday, June 13. In the event of inclement weather, graduation will be moved to Sunday, June 14 at 5 p.m. on the football field. Since graduation is being held outside this year, and with the uncertainty of weather, we have moved our date to Saturday night so our rainout date can be the next day. At this time, we will limit the number of guests to 10 people for each graduating senior. We ask that each guest bring a lawn chair with them to sit on the football field. We will have sections of the field marked off for family groups of ten, but we will not reserve sections. Your family will choose your section when you arrive. If social distancing requirements are further removed, we will continue to allow more guests to attend. We will hold a practice session with our graduating seniors on Friday June 12th at 10 a.m..

The following information was released today regarding Summer Sporting Activities:

COVID-19 Reopening Guidance:
Summer Sports

Purpose
This guidance was created in consultation with the Iowa Department of Public Health (IDPH), Iowa High School Athletic Association (IHSAA), and Iowa Girls High School Athletic Union (IGHSAU) as a resource for administrators to determine when and how districts and nonpublic schools may begin to engage in school sports seasons while keeping participants and spectators safe. It must be used in conjunction with all proclamations issued by the governor and guidance provided by the IDPH. Additional guidance will be provided by IHSAA and IGHSAU.

June 1

Team organized practices for baseball and softball may begin unless circumstances dictate a change in date.
The following mitigation efforts are required to help ensure player, coach, and spectator safety:

❏ Post signage prominently indicating no one should attend or participate in practice if they currently have symptoms or have been in contact with anyone with a confirmed COVID-19 diagnosis in the last 14 days.
❏ No dugouts may be used. Players’ items should be lined up against the fence at least six feet apart.
❏ Parents must remain in their cars or drop off and pick up players after practice.
❏ Players should use their own gloves, helmets, and bats as much as possible.
❏ Coaches are responsible for ensuring social distancing is maintained between players as much as possible. This means additional spacing between players while playing catch, changing drills so that players remain spaced out, and no congregating of players while waiting to bat.
❏ Players must bring their own water/beverage to consume during and after practice. No shared drinking fountains, portable hydration stations, or coolers may be used.
❏ Coaches must sanitize shared equipment before and after each practice.
❏ Players and coaches should check their temperatures before attending practices.
❏ Anyone with symptoms of illness is not allowed to practice.
❏ Coaches should be knowledgeable of their students with pre-existing health conditions and work with school nurses or other health officials to take additional precautions as needed.
❏ Players should be encouraged to provide their own hand sanitizer.
❏ Coaches must ban the spitting of sunflower seed shells.
❏ Coaches are responsible for tracking absences for the purpose of noting potential COVID-19 cases.
❏ Contact public health if a positive case of COVID-19 is reported.

IOWA DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION GUIDANCE

Iowa Department of Education guidance should be viewed as advisory unless it's specifically authorized by state statute, according to Iowa Code section
256.9A. This does not apply to administrative rules, declaratory orders, or materials required by federal law or courts.

June 15

Baseball and softball games may begin unless circumstances dictate a change in date. Baseball and softball practices must continue to follow the guidelines provided in the previous section.

The following mitigation efforts are required to help ensure player, coach, and spectator safety during games:

❏ Post signage prominently indicating no one should attend or participate in games if they currently have symptoms or have been in contact with anyone with a confirmed COVID-19 diagnosis in the last 14 days.
❏ Use of dugouts is permitted during games only.
❏ Players should use their own gloves, helmets, and bats as much as possible.
❏ Players must bring their own water/beverage to consume during and after games. No shared drinking
fountains, water stations, or coolers may be used.
❏ Coaches must sanitize shared equipment before and after each game.
❏ Players and coaches should check their temperatures before attending practices or games.
❏ Anyone with symptoms of illness is not allowed to participate.
❏ Schools must limit the use of bleachers for fans. Encourage fans to bring their own chairs or stand.
Fans should practice social distancing between different household units and accept personal responsibility for public health guidelines.
❏ Schools must also implement any other reasonable measures under the circumstances of each school to ensure social distancing of staff, students, and community members, increased hygiene practices, and other public health measures to reduce the risk of transmission of COVID-19 consistent with guidance issued by the IDPH.
❏ Fans must not attend if they have symptoms of illness.
❏ No concessions stands are permitted.
❏ Contact public health if a positive case of COVID-19 is reported.

OPEN GYMS/CAMPS/OTHER SCHOOL FACILITIES

In-person team organized activities for other sports remain suspended until July 1. For profit businesses that provide sports training and that sell memberships are allowed to offer sports training as long as they follow the same guidelines as fitness centers/clubs, gymnasiums, health clubs, and health spas and can continue to operate for all sports.

QUESTIONS AND ADDITIONAL GUIDANCE

New London Community School District

Student checkout will take place on Tuesday, May 26th and Wednesday, May 27th for all K-12th grade students from 11:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. We ask all students, in Clark Elementary, to enter through the main office doors and turn in library books, computers, and chargers. In the MS/HS, we ask all students to enter through the side music room door. We will collect all computers, chargers, and bags in the music room. Students will then go to their lockers and gym lockers to collect their personal items and empty their lockers. Once they have collected all of their items they will exit through the office and turn in any district materials they currently have and pay any fees that are on their bills. If you have any questions, please call the MS/HS office at 319-367-0500. ... See MoreSee Less

New London Community School District

Notice: Last day of school for this school year is tomorrow, Wednesday, May 20!

Dear New London Families,

Over the last several weeks, we have been working with our teachers to identify ways to mitigate the loss of face-to-face time with our students. We know that not just one specific decision will make an impact, but we will need to look at several decisions that will give us the best chance to close the gap.

During the last couple of months, our teams have been identifying missed essential standards by grade level. This work had previously been done to fit a typical year; however, we all know that we must be ready to take what students lost this year and integrate it into next year’s curriculum. We will front-load those standards when needed, but also integrate what was missed throughout the year. After all, in education, in almost every circumstance, learning cycles from one year to the next, with each year building on the last.

We will ensure that every student has access to grade level curriculum, and we will identify individual students' needs through ongoing assessments. The results will drive interventions for every student. In order to strengthen our intervention program, we have extended the school day by 15 minutes. These minutes will not only allow for a stronger and more structured intervention program, but over the course of the year, these minutes will be equivalent to an additional seven days of school. Dismissal time for school during the 2020-2021 school year for Clark and the MS/HS will be 3:30.

In addition to these minutes, the teachers and the administration have worked collaboratively to identify additional instructional days. We concluded that it would be best to take the last five days of this current school year and transfer them to next year’s school calendar. This means that Wednesday, May 20 will be our teachers’ last day of virtual learning with our students. Summer break has officially started! These five days, along with the conversion of 3 professional development days into student contact days, will make next year’s calendar have 188 student contact days (instead of 180). That, along with extra minutes each day, will make up 15 days of lost time. The first day of school will now be Tuesday, August 18, 2020.

In the next six weeks, we will create a Return to Learn plan as part of the guidance from the Iowa Department of Education. This plan will be focused around seven main components: leadership; infrastructure; health and safety; Iowa academic standards; social, emotional, and behavioral health; equity; and data. This plan will require us to think about face-to-face learning, virtual learning, and a hybrid of both as we cannot, as of yet, predict what the fall will bring.

Tomorrow information will be released about student checkout.

Yours in Education,


Chad Wahls, Scott Kracht, Todd Palmatier, Allison Lair, and Jon Munford

Great information! Thank you for all you’re doing! Will Wednesday’s still be an early out day, or will the kids get out at 3:30 on that day too?

Is there still going to be early outs on Wednesday’s? When do we return their laptops?

Guess my question is if there is still social distancing in place, how are you going to keep all the students 6 ft apart and will they wear masks.

Will there still be Zoom classes tomorrow for high school?

School sports return June 1. Start school then too. Kids need an education not more vacation. Teachers have been paid for not teaching and will do so for the summer. Get school going. This is ridiculous. IMHO.

Those will be some mean worms coming out of that can you just opened.

What time will school start in morning

Below is an article that was done with the New London Journal and published this week about the recent social media conversation around the All-State and State placement pictures in the gym lobby. Since the article the conversations have continued between the AD's and Mr. Wahls about what the next steps should be. We have decided to develop a committee that will help with the process. This group will consist of the president of the Booster groups, head coaches of all varsity sports, 1 member of the school board, Ben Fry and Chad Wahls. It is the schools goal to have this committee work together to develop a resolutions by the middle of June. When the committee comes to an agreement it will be shared with everyone at that time. If you have any further questions please don't hesitate to contact Mr. Wahls by email chad.wahls@nlcsd.org or his extension 367-0512 ext.1104

By Gina Anderson

For anyone that doesn’t keep up on such things, there is an “All-State Wall” display that runs around the available wall space in the gym lobby. It celebrates athletes that have made a state team in a particular sport. We have been blessed with many athletes getting those honors…several multiple times. The wall space is now full and there are eight kids waiting to take their place on the wall…somewhere.
The wall works this way: as an athlete makes an all-state team, they receive a picture with their accomplishment listed and it is added to the wall. There are many that have five or more separate pictures on the wall. They are certainly deserved but as wall space has dwindled, this has become increasingly more difficult to justify. If the pictures stay, they may have to be condensed. That will make them even more difficult to read
Last Wednesday as the pictures started to come down. Almost immediately social media swung into high gear. Petitions were there to sign. The Superintendent’s motives were questioned and on and on it went with many weighing in…most were respectful; some were not. Most just want to know what is happening and why…all fair questions.
Last Friday, I sat down with the Superintendent and the two ADs to get their side of the story. They all acknowledged that change is never easy, but this is something that had been discussed for two or three years. Most importantly they pointed out that no decision ever pleases everyone.
So, let’s address the first charge that the Superintendent who “is not from here and doesn’t have a kid on the ‘wall’ doesn’t care.” He wants it made clear that he wants the students’ accomplishments remembered and celebrated and displayed, and that he understands how deeply important this is to the community. He points out they are deeply important to him too.
The charge that he doesn’t care is especially painful to him. He remarked, “I don’t know what more I could do since the day I stepped on New London soil to show that I bleed Black & Gold, and that I’d do anything and everything for this District to make it look better, be better, and respect and honor everyone here.”
The first argument is there is no more room. Many point to the wall that is adjacent to the gym as the way to go. Turning the corner of that wall down towards the locker rooms would provide lots of wall space. According to the three men, this is not an ideal situation. This hallway needs to be open for teams and officials to go in and out and isn’t ideal for people to be looking for a certain picture. It is already a magnet to kids that aren’t seated in the gym and like to use it as a playground. As all three said, “It becomes a safety issue.”
AD Ben Fry stated that he understands that there is a lot of history there, but also a lot of inconsistency. “The pictures and the writing have no consistency, and turning down the hallway isn’t ideal. Also, the pictures that are near the ceiling are really impossible to read.’
Another issue Fry brought up is that there is no equity for the kids that make all-state in a non-athletic endeavor. Where are their pictures displayed? The gym is the hub of the school, not the auditorium. It is filled limited times a year while the gym hosts many events such as graduation where the pictures would be seen by many more people rather than putting them in the auditorium where their exposure would be limited. The kids that make academic all-state aren’t displayed either. It is the hope that all students can be included in a revamped way of presenting these pictures and accomplishments.
AD Mike McBeth also made several points. He feels, as do the others, that this will be a way to modernize and streamline the pictures. He points out that people occasionally question the way the All-State pictures are displayed and how these decisions are made. He adds that few realize how many calls they field where people ask for their child to be placed in another location or that the arrangement be changed to favor the newer pictures. They even have had requests that the oldest pictures be taken down.
Their plan is to scan a picture for each sport in which an athlete is honored and then a written summary of the accomplishments. It will be arranged by year. After the pictures are scanned, they will be returned to the families or donated to the Dover Museum. They will be on the TV that holds the sports records. If a certain athlete is a multiple sport All-Stater, there would be a collage of them in each of their respective uniforms in their display. They hope to start the effort to also include the fine arts All-Stater’s along with the All-State academic recipients. This will become an all-inclusive All-State experience for all students in the place where it would have the greatest traffic.
They presented this plan to Black & Gold Backers and only one person said they didn’t like it, however they also commented that they understood the challenges. No one else expressed an opinion. They also wanted everyone to know that this is not the School Board’s proposal.
Everyone should see what’s planned, be informed instead of reactive. Remember that people can disagree without being uncaring or unreasonable and that includes both sides of the argument. It is hoped that everyone keeps an open mind and be open to change, especially in an era where technology is at our fingertips almost constantly. Maybe, just maybe, nothing will change, but remember everyone wants what is best and no one wants to shortchange our kids or throw away their accomplishments.
Superintendent Wahls ended the interview with this, “If it doesn’t move to a digital image it will be revamped and cleaned up. I will wait and see how this shakes out, but people need to remember, we are not getting rid of the display, but just changing how it’s displayed.”
Hopefully everyone will be happy with the end result, however it is displayed, because in the end we all bleed black and gold.

Sincerely,

Chad Wahls, Ben Fry, & Mike McBeth

Digital media, on site and online, might be an acceptable alternative. - Class of 1989

Please notice in the post a correction was made to the date. We need to move the Senior Spotlight to June 8th so that we can give the scholarship committees enough time to get us their materials. We apologize for having to make this change. Everything will stay the same except it will be moved from June 1st to June 8th.

2020 Senior Spotlight

Attention Class of 2020 and their parents:

Mrs. Alspach has shared a Google Doc with each student in their email that we need them to have filled out By May 26th for our 2020 Senior Spotlight. Since we are not able to gather in large groups this year due to social distancing requirements, we will be doing our 2020 Senior Spotlight a little different. We will pre-record our 2020 Senior Spotlight and then post it to our School Facebook page at 7 p.m. on June 8th. Unfortunately, students and parents will not be able to attend our Senior Spotlight. We will instead post a picture of each student and we will read off each student's name, parents/guardians. future plans, words of advice to underclassmen, most memorable moment, and awards/scholarships they have received. We have tried to wait as long as possible so that all scholarships and awards have a chance to be received by our students. We know at this point there are still some waiting for groups to be able to meet and decide on who the recipient will be. Due to the circumstances of this year though we may not have access to all of these awards so it is imperative that you list them on this Google Form or else it may not be mentioned during our 2020 Senior Spotlight. It is our hope that we are able to get all of the information from the different groups, seniors, and their parents to make this possible. If you have any questions please contact Scott Kracht at scott.kracht@nlcsd.org or Rita Alspach at rita.alspach@nlcsd.org. We hope to make this a memorable and fun event for our students and their families.

Thank You

Parents/Guardians:
During this time of school closure, there have been and continue to be many areas of uncertainty for all of us in regards to what our daily lives will look like and what school and school activities will look like. One major concern that has been on many people’s mind is whether our students would have the opportunity to participate in prom and graduation. We have tried to wait as long as we could for guidance from the Iowa Department of Health, Department of Education, and our Governor to see when and what these events might need to look like due to the safety restrictions placed on large social gatherings. Since Henry County remains as 1 of the 22 counties in the State of Iowa that are still under increased business closures and social gathering restrictions, we feel it is prudent that we move graduation from our original date of May 24. Even if restrictions are lifted on May 15 by our Governor, we wanted to give families enough time to plan for graduation. The decision to move graduation is not one that was made lightly or without a lot of discussion, but it is one that we feel we must be made to be able to hold a graduation ceremony that our families feel is safe to attend.
We have always believed that it is important to hold prom and graduation for our students, in person, if it was at all possible. At this time, we do not have a plan on when prom can be held due to the social distancing guidelines, but as soon as we receive guidance a date will be set, if we can, for this summer. As for graduation, we have always felt it is very important to hold an in-person ceremony for our students and their families as it marks a major milestone in their lives. Therefore, we have developed a plan with dates that may require limited guests to be able to attend. So, here is our plan that could still be changed (so more could attend) if social distancing restrictions are lifted before the date of our graduation. We will follow state guidance on PPE, masks, and social distancing during the ceremony.
Our Graduation Ceremony is now scheduled for June 14th at 2 p.m. and it will be held on the football field to accommodate family and friends. Our graduates will be on the track, the graduation stage will be in the bleachers, and family and friends will be spread out across the football field. At this time, each graduate will be able to bring six guests to graduation to sit on the football field. An area for each family will be designated by a sign on the field for each family. Please bring lawn chairs or blankets to sit on. In the event of inclement weather, graduation will be moved to the gym and designated seating areas will be marked in the bleachers. We are hoping that Graduation can be livestreamed again this year for all other individuals that would like to attend but are not able to. If it cannot be live streamed outdoors we will record the ceremony and post it to our Facebook page as soon as possible.
If Henry County remains on stricter guidelines that are not lifted by June 1 for large gatherings of people, graduation will be postponed again to July 19 at 2 p.m. and we will follow the same format as above.
If social distancing restrictions are not lifted by July 6, then our graduation ceremony will once again be postponed and we will move to a virtual graduation ceremony that will be held on August 2 at 2 p.m. and details for the virtual ceremony will be sent out in July.
We understand that this is a stressful time for all, but we promise that we will do whatever is in our control to make sure that our students' hard work and perseverance is honored and that their graduation ceremony will be memorable. We appreciate your understanding and patience through this difficult time.
