AlphaBest is accepting enrollment into their before and after school programs for the 2022-2023 school year for middle and elementary school students. The AlphaBest program is located at each school site and designed to engage students in innovative, hands-on activities developed to spark curiosity and creativity.

NPS is proud to partner with Norman Regional Health System to offer Norman Regional Kids Virtual Care to our students while they’re still at school and being seen in the nurses’ office. Norman Regional Kids Virtual Care allows your child to do a virtual visit with a local licensed provider or pediatrician with the help of the nurse so your child can be seen and diagnosed quickly. If a prescription is needed, the provider will send the prescription to an identified pharmacy of your choice. Insurance is filed for each visit and the visit will cost your child’s normal copay for a Primary Care visit. There is a cash pay price of $60 per visit for children without insurance. Charity care is available through the clinic.
