Food at Freeman
Staff have looked closely at NHCS Board Policy on Student Wellness Due to federal guidelines through our Food Nutrition Department (Cafeteria Breakfast and Lunch), all students at Freeman must be offered school breakfast and lunch.
Should a teacher require food for an instructional activity:
It cannot be a meal replacement
It can be a healthy snack
It can be served after 1:30pm when the cafeteria is done serving for the day
If parents are donating food for the activity, the teacher must have prior notice.
Food must be store-bought.
Thank you for understanding and complying with NHCS School Board Policy.
Literacy At Home
Literacy at Home: Digital Children's Reading Initiative
In order to provide continuing support for North Carolina's youngest readers, The North Carolina Department of Public Instruction Office of Early Learning has developed and released "Literacy at Home." This digital resource provides literacy activities at each grade level, pre-kindergarten through fifth grade.
School Hours and Procedures
School Doors Open at 7:15am
School Starts at 7:40am
School is dismissed at 2:35pm
To check in a student in the mornings if they arrive after 7:40, an ADULT must walk them in, sign them in to the computer, print a sticker for them to take to class. This is time consuming! It's easier to just be on time.
To check a student out early, you must arrive before 2pm. You HAVE TO HAVE A STATE-ISSUED ID to check out a student early, and you must be listed as someone who can check out the student.
If you have a transportation change for you child, you MUST call/email this in before 2pm. The school phone number is (910) 251-6011.
