Dear NFPS Community,

I am pleased to inform you that the Consolidated Elementary School Academy (CELA) will be opening on time in late August 2022.  We are all very excited about the new school and the new home of our PreK to Grade 2 students and staff. I am confident it will be an excellent learning environment and we are looking forward to moving to the Meeting House Hill School (MHHS) campus.  

Last evening, at the Board of Education budget meeting, the topic of combining Consolidated School and MHHS into a single school on an elementary campus was discussed. Please note that no decisions have been made and no votes by the Board of Education have been taken. A new configuration, a PreK-Grade 5 school, has positive benefits as well as some challenges, so your input is important. At this time, we are still discussing all possibilities. In the near future, we will have community conversations to get your input as we move forward with the opening of CELA and plan for a smooth transition to our beautiful new space.  

Thank you for your continued support and cooperation. I look forward to future discussions as we work to provide the best schools for our children and community.



Dr. Patricia Cosentino
