NSSD Mission


NSSD Foundation

This is a first for me.

I need to make a small change to our school schedule on Friday, May 6th.  All schools in our district will release students early on this day. This is not something I expect will happen again, it is unusual, but the decision to make this happen is due to a need for additional training time for teaching staff.  Our principals will communicate the details of this day related to schedules, transportation and meals.  I appreciate your support.


You may notice bright blue banners posted around our community. Most likely, these banners are a reminder that April is Child Abuse Prevention Month. Research shows 1 in 4 girls and 1 in 20 boys report experiencing sexual abuse by the age of 18, many were under the age of 9. In 90% of the cases, sexually abused children know their abuser. Nearly 36% of offenders are older children or teenagers. There really is no one type of offender. They can be a friend, family member, neighbor, teacher, or coach of any gender. So how can we protect our children? The most important thing we can do is talk to our child, but how do we do that? Attached are some age-appropriate guidelines to help. For more information visit http://hotchocolatetalk.org/. Please reach out to one of our counselors or an administrator if you need assistance or if you have any questions. Thank you for keeping our children safe.

We’ll take it!  A UHSAA State 3A Championship trophy for our NSHS Drama Team. Congratulations to these talented students.

April and May schedules are filled with field trips, end-of-year activities, graduation, Spring sports, and testing. Please help us by sending your students to school each day and support our teachers as they work to finish well. Your support makes all the difference. Watch those school websites and calendars for upcoming events. 

NSSD Board meeting is schedule for April 19th at 7 p.m.
 

Take care,
