Printing Reminders from the School Office

Tips for efficient and economical use of our printing/copying machinery:


  • The building copiers/printers are intended for limited use: no more than 30 copies of 2 pages (total of 60 per classroom) per day. Any larger print jobs should be sent to the District Print Center for processing. Make one original here, send to the District Print Center for duplication. Plan on 3-5 days turn around.
  • The color printer should be used only for those projects for which color is an essential piece of the instruction being delivered. If multiple copies of any color project need to be produced, make only one on our color printer and send to the District Print Center for duplication.
  • Laminating (which must be sent to the District Print Center) should be limited to those items that will be used multiple times or multiple years in the classroom.
  • Printing which will be picked up by a student should be sent to the Office copier (Ricoh_OFF) only. Please do not send print jobs to the Media Center unless you intend to pick them up yourself.


Please let the Office Staff know if you need assistance with printing jobs.

NFSI End-of-Day Reminders: Please Read!

• Kindergarten should be the first to dismiss/exit to the buses, close to 3:45.

• 1st grade will follow kindergarten at approximately 3:47.

• Teachers/grade levels who have afternoon duty also dismiss and exit after Kindergarten- teachers who have bus duty should plan to walk the bus line and provide support for students along the sidewalk.

• All other classrooms should wait to dismiss students until after the first bell rings at 3:50.

***NEW: Please communicate with students this week that if they exit the school and their bus is late/has not arrived, that they should RETURN to the school doors. If the weather is friendly, we will line them up on the pavement. If it is raining or dangerously cold, we will work to line students up along the lockers in the hallway as best we can. Thanks!

Next Week at a Glance:

4th grade has bus and door duty next week- thank you sooo much!

Want to add something to this staff update?

The staff update will typically come out on via email on Thursday or Friday each week. If you have an item that you would like to include in this bulletin, please email it to Tina by Wednesday noon, and we’ll do our best to add it to the bulletin. Let’s work together to use this bulletin as our primary method for making all-school announcements, and hopefully by distributing information in one central way, we can decrease the number of emails that we all receive.
