NPS policy states that all students who are absent 20 or more days will be retained. If your child has met academic expectations and there are extenuating circumstances that explain the absences, you will have the opportunity to request a waiver. Please make an appointment with Mrs. Alger by calling 852-4555.
OPEN HOUSE FOR 2013-2014 School Year will be held on August 29 from 3:30 – 5:30.

Dismissal Procedure Chart
To find out your child’s dismissal time first look at the type of transportation, then at the grade level.
Students will be released early only in the case of an emergency
and with the approval of the principal.
Early Pick ups: Early dismissals should occur only in rare circumstances. Interrupting classes to call students to the office also distracts other students and interrupts the end of the day classroom routines. Please make every effort to schedule appointments outside of school hours. Students leaving early will be marked as early out. This is considered the same as a tardy.
