Virtual Friday's and Attendance

Virtual Friday's will be every Friday from October 23rd through December 18th. Virtual Friday's are optional face to face days and students that attend face to face are not required to attend in person. However ALL students are required to log in to their 1st period teachers classroom or email and fill out the virtual attendance form so they are NOT counted absent for the day. If students do not have internet access then those students can use the paper copy of the attendance form to fill out the and have their parent/guardian sign and return to their 1st period teacher on Monday. Students will have until 12:30 on pm on Friday's to fill out the online attendance form.

MASK UP TO KEEP UP

Parents and guardians we have successfully completed 4 weeks of the MASK UP TO KEEP UP CAMPAIGN. Students caught wearing their mask correctly are given a ticket for our weekly Mask Up to Keep Up drawing for a free mask, and goodies from Sonic. We will continue this campaign throughout the year as a way to remind our students the importance of wearing their mask correctly.

Please make sure your child(ren) wash their mask daily or change them out daily. Having a clean mask is also important in keeping our students and staff healthy.

Thanksgiving Break

Students will be out of school for Thanksgiving Break from Monday, November 23rd- Friday, November 27th. Please take this time to relax, rest and enjoy your family!

Items Needed for Jasmine's Closet

With the weather changing from hot to cold it's that time when many of our students are in need of a sweatshirt, jacket or even a coat. During the month of November and December Jasmines closet will be collecting warm clothing items such as jackets, caps, gloves, scarves, sweatshirts, sweat pants and socks. These items must be freshly washed and preferred that the socks are new in the package. All items can be dropped off at NLRMS 7/8 campus, 2400 Lakeview Road.
