Teacher Spotlight

On Sept 25th our very own Kansas Cowgill will be inducted into the Nebraska Hall of Fame for High School Sports. She was the 2000 Tennis State Champion, the 2nd leading scorer in Nebraska Basketball History, and currently holds the title for the most 3 pointers made in a single season and a career. When you see her in the hallway give her a shout out.

School Safety & Student drop-off and pick-up

NISD School Safety

School Safety Update:

Classes start at 8:40am, daily. Supervision is available up to one hour before the start of the school day, so at 7:40, we open the front doors to the children. Students who arrive before 7:40am will need to stay under the covered entrance by the benches.

Please don't use the bus loop to park drop off or pick up. Our bus loop is for buses. We have several high school buses dropping off and picking up magnet school students in our lane late in the day so we need to keep the bus loop clear.

Thank You

Welcome to Mrs. Ollendieck, our new Assistant Principal!

Amazon Orders

If you shop online, chances are you use Amazon. Amazon donates .5% of the price of orders to charitable organizations selected by their customers. Please consider adding Dolph Briscoe Middle School to your account. There is no charge to the customer. This money goes to our PTA who in turn uses the proceeds for student events like end of year celebrations, dances, and field day.
