Notes from Driveline

Thank you all for your support in helping to expedite Driveline in a safe and efficient manner. Your children's safety is our number one priority. Please remember these following guidelines:

1. Please do not get out of your vehicle while you are in Driveline. We will help your student out of the car. If you need extra time, please feel free to park in the parking lot.

2. Please do not drop your students off anywhere about the drop off/loading zone. We have had students dropped off on 1st street as well as the center Island.

3. Please give hugs and kisses prior to entering driveline.

4. Please do not park in the dirt lot to the East of the building. This is private property and we would hate for any of our families to get a ticket.

5. After careful review of procedures, we are asking there are no left turns (morning and afternoon) on the East side of the building into Driveline. This hinders traffic on 1st and slows driveline.

Morning Dropoff

Starting Monday, if you are staying on campus until after the bell, we are asking that you stay behind the black fence, also if you have small children that are in school we ask that you do not allow them on the playground equipment. This is a safety issue for both your small children and the students.

Lunch Update

Unfortunately, next week we will be continuing with sack lunches. TSD has not yet provided Kitchen help. If you have questions or concerns please contact TSD Nutrition Services.

Mrs. Hejl 4-8 Principal

How has it been two weeks already? Students and staff are mastering routines and expectations and are diving into content! Thank you to our parents, students, and community members for all the support these past two weeks as we launch new systems, learn our new building, and launch the 2019-2020 school year!

This year in grades 4-8 our focus is, "Something for Everyone." Our goal is to offer a wide variety of programs that will inspire every student, everyday to come to school excited to learn. Please be on the lookout for exciting opportunities and events throughout the school year. Next week, Brandon Harrington will begin the All the World's a Stage 4th-8th Grade after school theatre program. Please click on the link to learn more about the program and access the program description and expectations.

Notes From Driveline:

Help NVCS be Good Neighbors:

Parents please help us be good neighbors. During pick up and drop off please do not park in the Larimer County Building. They have reached out with specific concerns about the number of students and families that are using their parking lot and the impact it is having on their clients and staff. Thank you for using our driveline, we have gotten times down to 20 minutes or less in the last week for morning and evening drop off.

Arriving After 7:50 am:

Students arriving after 7:50 am are able to enter through the front doors of the building. Tardy slips will not be assigned until after 8:03 a.m. This will allow students time to get to their classes and lockers without having to run around the building.

Finally, thank you to all the families that attended our Back to School Night. We enjoyed having you in our classrooms to share with you the exciting learning that will take place in your students classes this year. Thank you for partnering with us for a wonderful year!

Bullying vs. conflict- What’s the difference?

Everyone experiences conflicts sometimes and they’re a normal part of life. However, bullying is not normal and can have serious consequences. But how can you tell the difference between the two? Having a conflict with someone is a disagreement or argument. Bullying is intentionally trying to harm someone or hurt their feelings. Bullying can be repeated and purposeful. Conflicts usually get resolved. An easy way to tell the difference between bullying someone and having a conflict with someone is in a conflict situation, both people will be upset. When someone bullies someone else, usually only the victim of the bullying feels upset. Sometimes the bully can even feel happy that they’re hurting the other person.

Remember- If you or someone you know is a bully or is getting bullied, report it to a trusted adult! Even if you aren’t sure if it’s bullying or just a conflict.
