NDPA and the Eclipse

August 17th, 2017|Uncategorized|

Dear NDPA Parents,

There has been a lot of buzz going on about the coming eclipse on Monday, August 21…we have to admit, we’re pretty excited too!

As the students will be in school that day, we would like to help them participate in this special solar event but would also like to give you the opportunity to withhold your child if you do not feel it will be safe. To protect your student’s eyes from potential solar damage, we have obtained “eclipse approved” glasses for students who have parental permission to view the solar eclipse.

YOU MUST FILL OUT AND RETURN THE PERMISSION SLIP that teachers will send home on Friday, August 18 (or print your own using the link below) if you would like your student to view the eclipse with the eclipse glasses NDPA will provide. This permission slip must be turned in by the morning of Monday, August 21.

NDPA will have indoor recess all day on Monday. Students who have not been given permission to view the eclipse will not be allowed to go outside during the school day on Monday, August 21. Teachers will take students who have returned the permission slip outside for a short time during the eclipse.

Please take some time to review the following information from Clark Planetarium and talk with your family about the safety information included. Clark Planetarium Safety & Viewing Tips: https://slco.org/uploadedFiles/depot/clark_planetarium/EclipseSheet.pdf

Sincerely,
NDPA Administration

New Things Coming to NDPA!

August 7th, 2017|Uncategorized|

Dear NDPA Parents,
 As we get ready to start school, I wanted to make you aware of some changes we will be making for the upcoming year:

NEW ELECTRONIC VISITOR & VOLUNTEER CHECK-IN SYSTEM
Coming soon, NDPA will begin utilizing an electronic system for visitors, volunteers, and students. This new system will impact families in the following ways:

Any person entering the school for the first time to volunteer, eat lunch with a student, or for any other reason requiring them to access the school beyond the lobby, will need to show ID to the person at the front desk. The system will scan the ID and “approve” the individual for entry into the school. Future visits by the same individual will only require a quick ID scan and sign-in at the designated kiosk.

Any person who is approved to pick up students (as designated in Aspire Gradebook) who would like to check a student out will be required to appear inside the school and show proof of identification. They will be asked to remain in the lobby until the student can be located and sent to meet them.

 Our hope is that students and parents will feel safe inside our school and that emergency rosters will be more accurate.

NEW ONLINE PAYMENT SYSTEM
We are excited to announce a new online payment system through Secure Instant Payments. This system will allow you to pay for lunch, Jr. High fees, Dollar Dress Days, field trips, etc. – all online. There will be a small fee to use this new system but we feel the convenience is well worth it! If you do not want to pay the fee, you are always welcome to pay with cash or [...]
