The Hall Way...

Thank you to all of our families that came in for Parent Teacher Conferences this week. The staff loves collaborating with our families to help and support our students. Hopefully you picked up your student's folder that had their MAP and IAR scores along with some other information. The videos and links below contain helpful information for parents about how to understand the scores and your student's progress. If you were not able to attend conferences, the contents of the folders will be sent home at the end of the quarter. Speaking of the end of the quarter, it is quickly approaching on Friday, October 18th. Please encourage your students to finish strong and ask their teachers for help if they need assistance with any of their work. Hope our Northwood families have a nice long weekend!

Just a reminder!

If your student has a fever of 100* or above, he/she must stay home from school. Additionally, your student must be fever free for 24 hours before they can return to school (without the use of medications).

Per the NMS handbook:

ILLNESS: Should a student begin to feel sick during the school day, he should ask the teacher for a pass to the nurse's office. The student must tell the nurse that he/she is not feeling well. Should the student be seriously ill, the nurse, or designee, will contact the family. Students are not allowed to use a cell phone or to call their parents from a classroom to tell them to pick them up from school. A student will be excused from school ONLY by the school nurse or by an administrator once already in school. Should a student be picked up without going through the nurse or administrator, the absence will be unexcused.
