2 hour delay FAQ
1. Will NBE still serve breakfast on 2 hour delay days?
No breakfast will be served on 2 hour delay days.
2. Will the bus still pick my student up for 2 hour delay days?
The bus schedule will run 2 hours later than the usually scheduled pick up time. (For example: if your child is usually picked up at 8:27 a.m., then on a 2 hour delay day you should expect the bus to pick your student up at 10:27 a.m.)
3. Can I bring my student to school early?
School starts at 10:50 on 2 hour delay days. Unless your student is registered to attend YMCA Before-School care, students may not arrive to school early.
4. Does school end early on 2 hour delay days?
Dismissal time is the same time for 2 hour delay days.
Next week NBE will offer After School Enrichment classes to our Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grade students on 1/29-1/31. A Skylert email was sent on 1/24 at 4:30 p.m. with the registration link. The registration link is listed below.
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 email@example.com 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.
Please use the district website to view the daily breakfast and lunch menus.

Safe Visitor News!
Do you keep misplacing your SafeVisitor badge? Or does your barcode keep getting buried in new pictures on your phone?
We have exciting news for you: There is now a SAFEVISITOR app!
Go to the App Store. Type in SafeVisitor (no spaces) and follow the instructions to download the app. Use the 5 digit code that prints out on a SafeVisitor Badge by the barcode. This will save on phone and all you have to do when checking into an HSE school is pull up the app
*If you don't have a copy of your SAFEVISITOR badge code, just wait until you visit an HSE school again and get the code from that badge to input into the app.
Families with students currently in 3rd, 5th, and/or 7th grade who will be impacted by redistricting in 2019-2020 qualify for grandfathering consideration. Grandfathering will allow current 3rd, 5th, and 7th grade students to remain at the current school for the 2019-2020 school year. Bus transportation will not be provided to students electing the grandfathering option. Siblings in a lower grade level will not be considered for grandfathering. Current 5th grade students at Hamilton Southeastern Intermediate and Junior High electing to be grandfathered are only doing so for their 6th grade year. For their 7th grade year they will attend their correct junior high.
Once the 02/01/19, 11:45 PM deadline passes, grandfathering is not guaranteed and a transfer appeal form must be submitted for review. (link to transfer appeal page on website: https://www.hseschools.org/about/enrollment)
The following form must be completed by 02/01/19 for a current 3rd, 5th, or 7th grade student to be included in grandfathering for the 2019-2020 school year.
Please contact Julie Hays at firstname.lastname@example.org or 317-594-4100 with any questions.
