NPA Family Update

November 8, 2021

Greeting NPA Families

This communication includes information about your student's next assignment sheet and other relevant NPA happenings.


The annual Health Kids Survey is open now. We are asking that ALL parents/guardians/caretakers take a moment to share your feedback on NPA. This is valuable for us and we react to the findings to better our program.


Click HERE To complete the survey - THANK YOU!


This week all students are completing assignment sheet #3 and will be receiving assignment sheet #4. Completion of the sheet at the last meeting of the assignment sheet is considered positive attendance. Average Daily Attendance (ADA) at an independent study = work completion. Your student should have earned 15 days of attendance. How did your student do this assignment sheet?


Assignment sheet #4, given this week, has 15 days of ADA. The sample shown below is a Monday student. Please ask to see your student's new assignment sheet after the teacher meeting this week.


A reminder that the NPA campus will be closed for November 11 and 12 as well as November 24-26, 2021. Note that Nevada Union is in session on November 12. This is due to the NU campus closure on October 22. NPA was in session that day.


As usual, NPA parents/guardians/caregivers are welcome at any student meeting. Let us know if you need any assistance.

Social Media and Negativity

The Block it Out Campaign offers the platform for discussing the negative impacts of social media in general. We recommend having the conversation at home and we'll have it at school. Let's all take the time to consider blocking out the negative.
