Principal's Message

  • Greetings Nelson Navigators!

    At Nelson Elementary, we are working together to support our students as they Navigate their Nelson Way by following the STARs.  Nelson students Show Kindness, Take Responsiblity, Act Safely, and Respect Everyone & Everything.  Thank you for partnering with us!

    We appreciate being about to serve our Nelson community back in person!  



    At Nelson you can expect that:

    • We  follow the safety guidelines set forth by our Governor and Health Department
    • Our school day is 8:35 - 3:05.  Students are welcomed into the building at 8:20 AM.
    • All staff, students, and visitors wear masks regardless of vaccination status
    • We follow 3 ft social distancing in classrooms and 6 ft distancing in common areas
    • We are planning on being flexible and transparent if things change 


    We look forward to collaborating with our families and our community to meet the needs of Nelson students.  We encourage families to stay connected with us through the school year. Please email us, call us, and check our website regularly for information about school events and activities.   You can also find information on the Nelson Elementary PTA Facebook page.  It is our goal to communicate with our community to promote student learing.   Our school hours are 8:35 AM to 3:05 PM.  

    We look forward to a great year!

    Navigators are Better Together!

    Tami Nelson, Principal
