Student Laptop Care and Storage

Over the last two weeks we've had many students misplace their laptop. Please remind your student that their laptop should be stored in their locker when they are not using it in class. THANKS!

Student ID's and Picture Retakes

NRMS students have received their Student ID cards. Student ID's are required for hot lunch and library book check out. If a replacement is needed, students may purchase one from the Library for $3. If your child did not have pictures taken earlier this Fall, PICTURE RETAKES WILL BE NOVEMBER 14TH.

Student Not Feeling Well?

This time of year often brings illness. The question frequently comes up of when to keep a child home from school, below are our district guidelines.


A child should stay home from school and their physician should be consulted if he/she has any of the following symptoms:

  • A temperature of 100.4 or greater
  • Green or yellow discharge from nose or eyes
  • Vomiting or diarrhea
  • Cough or sore throat lasting longer than 2 days
  • Rashes or eruptions
  • Any other medical concern

Students should remain at home until symptom or fever free for 24 hours without the use of medication. If a student has been seen by a physician, and they have been deemed not contagious, a physician's note must be provided to the school indicating such in order for the student to return to class. As always, the best way to reduce your students risk of infection is to practice good hand-hygiene.
