Health Room Reminder 

Cold and flu season is upon us!  We have had several cases of strep at school as well.  Please remember to keep children home when sick: Students with a fever (temperature greater than or equal to 100) or flu/strep-like illness should not return to school until they have been fever-free for 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medicines.  Students with symptoms of intestinal illness (diarrhea and vomiting) should be symptom free before returning to school.


Service Road Closed

We will continue to have the NBH service road from the dumpster area to the elementary school closed from 7:40 am until 2:00 pm. We appreciate your continued help to ensure the safety of our students. If the road barriers are up DO NOT GO AROUND THEM! The barriers are strictly for the safety of the children.


Parking/Drop Off and Pick Up Reminders
Parents, do not drop off or pick up your child in a road- this is not allowedYou must pick up your child or drop him/her off in the designated spot or park. This is a huge safety issue. Also, please drive with patience and focus. Phones should be put away and drive slow. Safety is our number one focus during this time so please help us out. Thank you.


Also, if you are parked by the curb to pick your child up, please stay in your car. We will bring your child to you! Again, Safety is our number one focus during this time!

NBH MEN-tors program is designed for a dad, or father figure, to be able to come to the school and volunteer for the day. Dads will be given a schedule that will allow them to spend time in their child’s classroom and special areas, along with helping in the lunch room and monitoring hallways. MEN-tors will also be given a free t-shirt and their picture taken with their child to be put on the recognition board. This is a great opportunity to get 8 volunteer hours completed!
