Back to School--Soon!

Here we are in mid-August. While there's still plenty of opportunity to enjoy your summer vacation, it's also time to think about the coming school year.  At NCS, we're busy preparing for the return of students and staff.  Even before the first student day on September 1st, the school will see bursts of activity.  Junior high soccer begins on August 19th at 5 pm.   The following week --Thursday, August 27-- is the Kindergarten-Grade 4 ice cream social (6pm). 

PARENTS: It is time update student information online.  This week "Infosnap" emails are being sent to NCS families.  The first step: Be sure you have set up your Powerschool parent account.  If you already have a parent account set up, you're all set to login and complete your summer pack information.  If you still need to set up your parent account, you will want to have the letter that was recently mailed from school handy.  That letter contains access information to help create your account. 

Once you have a parent account, you can follow the instructions in this week's Infosnap email.  The email basically tells you to login to your Powerschool account and look for the icon with a box/arrow in the top right hand side of the screen.  Clicking on that icon will get you to the summer package information.  All students are 'returning students' because we have set up the initial information for you.   

Students participating in fall sports should have this information completed by Wednesday, August 19th.  All other families should complete Infosnap by August 30th. Extra laptops will be set up and available in the office for you if you do not have access to one.  

We think you'll be surprised to see that this online version takes much less time to complete than the bulky paperwork families used to receive in the mail, especially families with more than one child at school. We want this to be an easy process for parents. Be sure to call the school if you have questions.
