CHROMEBOOKS & CHARGERS RETURN
Junior High Students MUST turn in their Chromebook and charger on Monday, May 22nd during their Advisory class. Please make sure you have your Chromebook and charger turned in at this time to avoid being charged.
IMMERSION LOTTERY OPEN
Our Immersion Lottery is now open for applications! Current exposure students in grades K-5 are invited to apply. You may apply anytime between Monday, May 1st, and Monday, May 15th. Please fill out all fields correctly to ensure there are no problems when we draw names. (If your student is currently in the Immersion program, please do not fill out the survey.)
(Copy and paste link into a new tab, if not working)
Once the lottery closes, student names will be randomly selected according to the number of Immersion spots we currently have available in each grade. You will be notified by email shortly after the end of this school year. As we get closer to the new school year, and even after school starts, we often find out we have additional openings. We will draw from the lottery as openings occur and will notify you by email if your child's name is drawn.

UTAH SCHOOL CLIMATE SURVEY FROM THE UTAH STATE BOARD OF EDUCATION
We invite all parents, guardians, and caretakers to complete the NDPA School Climate Survey. Please submit your survey responses no later than May 4th, 2023. Students will participate in their classrooms during the month of April.
The surveys are anonymous, completely confidential, and brief, there are no right or wrong answers. Below is the link to the adult survey, which is also available on the website, Facebook, Instagram, and in Que Pasa.
We hope you will take the time to provide us with this valuable input. All grouped results will be used to inform and develop strategies, procedures, and programs to enhance our school climate.
STUDENT DROP OFF AND PICK UP

Open enrollment is here! NDPA is a state charter school with the number of applicants exceeding the number of openings. We handle this by accepting students via a lottery system. When a student is selected from the lottery pool, his or her siblings are given preference to other applicants; they are placed on a special sibling waiting list until openings are available.
If you applied for the 2022-2023 school year and your child was not selected, you will need to re-apply for the 2023-2024 school year. Applications are not rolled over to the next school year. Every effort will be made to accept all siblings within an individual family, but this may not be possible due to capacity on class sizes.
