FREE Breakfast & Lunch

JCSC has the opportunity to offer free breakfast and free lunch to all students again this year. Please take advantage of this exciting and nutritional service! The only thing that would cost money is if your student got an extra milk for $0.50 each.

Bus Policy Update

Students are not currently allowed to ride the school bus with a friend after school. This is a measure that is being taken to keep bus spacing and prevent the spread of Covid. We apologize for any inconvenience.
Box Tops for Education (Flyer)

Help raise money for your school! All you have to do is scan your receipts after shopping. See the flyer for more information. Thank you to our NVE PTO for creating another way for us to support our students!

Waterford Pre-K Program (flyer)

Waterford Upstart is a school-readiness program that teaches preschool-ages children basic skills they need in reading, math, and science. If interested visit waterford.org/upstart.

Water Bottles

Students are able to have and should have a water bottle during the school day. Proper hydration is crucial to students being able to focus and learn and this year, with the water fountains not usable, our bottle fillers are the only source of water for students. We give students a disposable cup if they forgot their water bottle but please make sure your student has a water bottle to use at school regularly. This will help with healthy learning habits

IMPORTANT: Car Pick Up Safety

"As you wait in line to drop off or pick up students at NVE, please make sure that you are staying on the correct side of the road. Even though it may be tempting to "jump line" by driving on the opposite side of the road to get into our parking lot, this creates a very dangerous situation for oncoming traffic on such a narrow road. Please model patience, grace and safety for our students as you drop off and pick up your student. We appreciate your help in making NVE a safer place!"

Title 1 Literacy Tip of the Week

Ensure your child is at school, on time, every day possible. Arrange for vacations, trips, etc. during days off school.

Birthday Celebrations

Just a quick reminder, that if your student will be celebrating a birthday and you are wanting to bring classroom celebration goodies, please check-in with your students teacher for a good day to bring those in. Also, the goodies will need to be individually wrapped and store bought.

Thank You!
