The Vision Revisited
In the spring of 2010 the Nahant Public Schools adopted its first five year Strategic Plan for the years 2010-2015. It outlined an ambitious timetable for advancing the Johnson School in the following ways: improving the core curriculum concentrating on excellence in math and English Language Arts; fostering collaboration and candor in the school community; developing a multi-year financial plan; establishing an ongoing and focused professional development program; and meeting state standards for integrating technology in instruction and operations.
During the past summer the Strategic Plan was reviewed by the School Committee. The overall success in improving most areas was very encouraging. There was notable disappointment in the financial picture as it has unfolded during the past two years and its effect on any attempt to sustain technology priorities. Nonetheless there is optimism that the plan, with some revision in its timelines, can still be accomplished in its entirety by the 2015 timeline in each area. There is a sustained commitment to excellence in areas. The Strategic Plan status report can be viewed in another section of this website.
Traffic FlowStarting September 2010
Reversing the direction to drop-off and pick up
Pre-K – grade 2 students will require all vehicles to enter the school site by the entrance near the primary level playground. Parents dropping off Pre-K-second graders will turn left in front of the school, stop at the curb and allow children to exit the vehicle on the passenger’s side of the vehicle. If older children are also passengers they may exit and walk around the cafetorium to enter school at the side entrance. Parents dropping off only students in grades 3-6 will continue around the school to drop-off their passengers at the side entrance.
Please note our traffic pattern.
We will not have adequate parking until a new "auxiliary parking area" is constructed so we’ve got to ask for full cooperation when you bring you children to school (please not before 7:45 AM). We will be implementing the early entrance into school for all children as colder more inclement weather arrives thus speeding up the time vehicles stop along the front curb to drop off children. To keep passengers and pedestrians safe, basic courtesy rules should be followed like using your directional and looking behind you before pulling away from the curb, pulling up as far as you can in front of the building to stop at the front curb, obeying the speed limit on school grounds which is 5-10 MPH and no stopping in the active driving lane to let children exit vehicles.
