We have may items that have been collected since the beginning of the school year. Please have your students check the Lost And Found tables outside the main office for missing items. All items that are not claimed will be donated by October 21st.

Friendly Reminders From The School Office

As the start of fall officially started this week and students have been getting used to the routines of school, its a good time to give a few reminders to help the school day run smooth.


Is your child going to be absent?

If your child will not be coming to school, please leave a message on the attendance line early in the morning or email the office at nor-office@d303.org. To call in your child, simply call the main office and leave a message on the attendance line. The number is 331-228-2700.

Please include the reason for absence - sick, an appointment, vacation, etc. ( Please note that if your child is sick, they should be fever free and have no vomiting or diarrhea for 24 hours before returning to school). Of course, you can always email the teacher as well, but you need to formally notify the school of any student absence.


Is your child leaving school early?

Also, if you will be picking up your child early or taking your child out for an appointment, please let our front office know as early in the day as possible by calling the main number at 331-228-2700 or email at nor-office@d303.org. This can be very helpful should a pick-up time be when the child is in specials or at lunch. Kids can be indoors as well as outdoors depending on their schedule and it can take a few extra minutes to locate and get the child down to the office for an early pickup if they are not in their classroom.


Will your child have a change in transportation?

If so, please let us know as early as possible in the day if there is a change in transportation for that day. Dismissal time can be very hectic and to help ensure a smooth dismissal, getting any transportation changes for students early is very helpful. Simply call the school office or email at nor-office@d303.org and let them know.


Will your child arrive late to school?

If your child is arriving after 8:00am please walk them into the school and sign them in.


Note: Save our school number in your contacts. Norton Creek Elementary: (331) 228-2700.
