Opening Day

As I am sure your children have reminded you, school begins on Tuesday, August 19. The K-4 Open Houses are Monday, August 18 in most cases. That information was in an earlier post. Please allow extra time to arrive at school on the first day and be particularly watchful for children who may not be as cautious as they should be in crossing streets.
NBHS and NBMS schedules are available through Power School on the website and K-4 class assignments have been posted at each building.
Bus schedules were sent out early last week. Please review them and remember during the first couple of days, the routes tend to take some time to work themselves out. So try to have your children at their bus stop at least five minutes early and don't be surprised if the bus is a few minutes early or late. If you have bus questions, please contact Patty Moore at 815-765-2655.
