Q& A

-Since the new Napoleon Elementary School will not be open until mid-year, will the district’s school calendar change?

-Where will the students in grades 7 & 8 go to school next year?

-Where will the students in grade 6 go to school next year?

Proposed District Calendar for 2015-16

As the new elementary school will not be open until mid-school year, the proposed district calendar has been modified to start right after Fair week and have a three (3) full weeks off for students at Christmas Break. During the Christmas Break, grades PK-6 staff would be moved to the new Napoleon Elementary School. The PK-6 grade students would start attending the new elementary beginning January 8, 2016.

A copy of the proposed calendar can be found here –PROPOSED 2015-16 School Calendar.


7th & 8th Grade Students

Students in grades 7 & 8 will begin the 2015-2016 school year at the completed Napoleon Junior/Senior High School (currently Napoleon High School). Toward the end of this school year, students in grades 6th – 8th will be transported to the Junior/Senior High School to tour the new facilities. Community Open House dates will be established in August so that students and community can see the new Junior High and renovated High School.


6th Grade Students

Grade 6 students will start the 2015-16 school year at Central Elementary in the current classrooms being used for grade 6. This will allow the students and staff of Central to begin working together as a team prior to the move to Napoleon Elementary School over Christmas Break.


K-5 Elementary Students       

Students in grades K-5 will begin the year in their current buildings.

Kindergarten – Assigned to either CD Brillhart Elementary or Central Elementary.

1st Grade – CD Brillhart Elementary

2nd & 3 Grades – West Elementary

4th, 5th & 6th Grades – Central Elementary


Preschool Program

Napoleon Area City Schools has two preschool units currently housed at St. Paul’s Lutheran School. The district is studying which of the three elementaryschools (CD Brillhart, West, or Central) will have room for the two units. The district expects to start the year with the preschool students at one of the elementary schools so that the preschool staff and students can begin getting to know their peers in preparation for moving to the new Napoleon Elementary School over Christmas Break.
