Welcome!

We want to welcome our new students and families to NAES and welcome back our students and families who have been here for years! Make sure to check out our website to find all the details you need to help stay informed and organized throughout the year. https://naes.albany.k12.or.us/

Keep Our Kids Safe: Nut Restricted Building

Thank you for your diligence in helping to keep the majority of our building peanut/tree nut free. We will continue to be conscientious of our students with severe allergies allowing peanuts/tree nuts in the gym/cafeteria only. All other areas of the school will continue to be peanut/tree nut restricted.

To help provide some level of protection for our severely allergic students we will:

  • Offer students eating peanut products wipes to clean hands after eating

  • Provide wipes to classrooms with a peanut/tree nut allergies prior to entering

  • After lunch the gym floor will be machine cleaned with a solution.

  • Cafeteria tables will also be cleaned with a solution.

  • A designated nut free table will continue to be available.

  • Offer separate locations for backpack/coat storage to students with peanut/tree nut allergies if needed


In all classrooms, all food will need to continue to be peanut/tree nut free, this includes class parties, activities, and snack items. Students bringing a daily snack for the classroom need to keep it separate from their lunch box (bring to classroom in backpack). No food from lunch boxes are allowed to be eaten in classrooms.

Again, we are so proud and thankful that our school community cares about the safety of our students and will continue to request that you adhere to the peanut/tree nut restricted areas (classrooms, library, office, etc.). Together we can maintain the most welcoming learning community for our children!

Pick Up and Drop Off

Getting your students to and from school will be the same as last year. We will continue to drop off in the North Albany Middle School parking lot (the same area/procedure as pick up). We will have a staff member supervising the parking lot near the gate every morning, starting at 8:35am, our earliest drop off time. We are asking that ALL families use our drop off/pick up routine this year so that we can keep our children safe and also so that our buses will be able to enter and exit the front parking lot on time. Students will go directly to the gym, eat breakfast if they so desire, and wait for their teacher to escort them to class at 8:55 am. The bell to start the day will ring at 8:55 am so that instruction may begin at 9:00 am.
