It seems the guidelines for school activities change on a weekly basis. Here are our updated guidelines as of Dec. 14th. The NSAA is requiring schools to follow the 25% capacity limits and limit attendance to households but will allow grandparents to attend. The NSAA requirements are in effect until January 4th.
On Tuesday, December 8th, Mr. Bradley’s Anatomy and Physiology class performed a lab, to emphasize their recent studies in the urinary system. The lab, in which simulated urine was used, was conducted to perform a urinalysis. A urinalysis is a test of urine used to detect medical issues, drug usage, and pregnancy. The class used the lab to examine the simulated urine and diagnose different “patients” with medical conditions, based on the symptoms these “patients” exhibited in their urine.

2020-21 NSAA Winter Season Guidelines (from nsaahome.org - updated 13 Nov 2020)
Circumstances related to the COVID-19 pandemic are constantly changing and the circumstances vary from community to community. Difficult decisions will have to be made from week to week or even day to day. The health and safety of students, staff, and local communities remain the priority of the NSAA as we provide opportunities to participate in the winter sports season.
We are looking for instructors in the Chadron-area. As the flyer indicates, the cost associated with the Driver Education Endorsement will be reimbursed by the NSC after a commitment to teach for the Center. Classes will be scheduled so they complement the instructors' professional and personal schedules. The salary for driver education instruction is quite competitive.
Parents: Please encourage your junior to access this paid ACT online prep! Different courses at Chadron High School align to content specific portions of the ACT, but we do not have a formal class that prepares students for any specific test, including the ACT. As Mrs. Watson states, "A strong ACT is the single best way to earn scholarships..."

From Sidney High School:
This year in order to keep our facilities operating while keeping attendance at/under 50%, we are going to use an online ticket system. There will be an option to print for those who want hard copies of their tickets. Also, for those who want to scan in with their phones, we will be able to accommodate. Tickets will need to be ordered through the links. Spectators will pay after they've been checked in on site. Please get this communicated!!!
