A note from the NMS office


Please make your child aware of ALL pertinent information before he/she leaves home.  Getting messages to students at school is disruptive to them and to the class.  Messages should be reserved for emergencies.


If your student is absent please call 825-9531 as early as possible to report his/her absence.  If you are unable to call during the school day, please call and leave a message on our voice messaging system or send a note with your student.  All calls and notes should be directed to the attendance secretary in the front office.  If your child misses five or more consecutive school days he/she will need to bring an excuse from a doctor.

Signing out a student

Please send a note to the attendance secretary or call the office (825-9531) in the morning if you need to sign out your student during the school day.  We will have your student waiting in the attendance office at the appropriate time.

Vacation days

If you plan to take a student out for vacation or an educational trip, a vacation form must be picked up in the office in advance and signed by all teachers and a parent.  Failure to get these forms completed will result in an unexcused absence.  Please see the student handbook for a list of excused absences and further information on vacation requests.

Change in Student Information

It is imperative that the school office be notified immediately of a change of address, home or office telephone number, or emergency information during the academic school year.

If you have questions please give us a call at 825-9531.
