Student Council Food Collection

Student Council is collecting food for the Delaware Township Food Pantry for the months of November and December. More people are in need and the donations are down, which is NOT a good combination. The food pantry is in need of the following items:


Soup - Canned Fruit - Spaghetti Sauce - Dried Beans -

Peanut Butter - Baking Mixes

Paper Products - Personal Hygiene Items - Crackers -

Cereal - Beef Stew -

Rice - Jelly - Juice Household Cleaners -

Any food item that is non-perishable


Please place your donations in the black boxes throughout the building.

Thank you for your help!

Car Rider Information

The easiest and most efficient way for your children to get to and from school is the district provided transportation. Our busing system is set in place to transport NBE students safely and efficiently.


If your student needs to be a car rider more than occasionally and you have not yet received a car tag, please email Michelle at mayres@hse.k12.in.us with your name, your student's name and your 4 digit FastLane number to get your car tag.


Please be sure hang the car tag from your

rear view mirror each day

to help expedite the pick up process.
