NSSD Mission

NSSD Foundation

Dear Parents,

Don’t forget…. this Friday is an early out day. We appreciate your support as our teachers take time to learn together. Check with your school principal if you have any questions.

Education is an incredibly rewarding profession, but as you might guess, it comes with daily challenges and learning experiences for children and adults. The education professionals that work in our schools are consistently working to improve, connect with children, and provide the best education possible for all students. I hope you will join me this week in taking time to recognize the dedicated work of our teachers and school principals. The work they provide is absolutely essential to individual students, families, and community. When you see them, please offer your thanks.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month.
To celebrate, Huntsman Mental Health Institute is hosting a series of “Community Conversations” with HMHI experts to share information, discuss mental health treatment and care, and hear from our community. Learn more about Mental Health Awareness Month and RSVP for events on our Mental Health Awareness Month webpage.
