Dear Family Members, when there is a school delay or cancellation, please know that scheduled meetings during the delayed or cancelled period must be rescheduled to another day. You will be contacted by school/district personnel to reschedule to another time. Thank you for your understanding and patience, especially during the winter season when our schedule can be disrupted by Mother Nature.
Kindergarten Registration will take place on Thursday, March 23, 2017, from 5:00 to 9:00 pm and also on Saturday, April 8, 2017, from 9:00 to 1:00 pm. Children must be screened by Child Outreach prior to the date of registration and Child Outreach personnel will be available here at NSES on both registration dates. Check the North Smithfield Schools District website for registration materials. All materials must be completed and brought with you when you arrive at the registration.
Please know that per State and Federal Regulations, all schools are required to hold fire drills every month. We also are required to hold two lockdown and evacuation drills each year. Be sure that your children are dressed appropriately for the cold weather to be prepared for these drills. They definitely need sweatshirts, coats, hats, and gloves. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
Each year it is very important to understand and follow our protocol for picking up your children at school. This is for the safety and security of each child. If you are picking up your child at the end of the day you park in the Visitor Lot in the back of the school near the soccer fields. You walk to the back of the school and wait outside the gymnasium doors. It is absolutely necessary to provide the staff with a photo identification. You also sign the pick up list. Students who are not on the pick up list will be in the bus lines. A pick up note must be sent to the classroom teacher in the morning. Students are only released to authorized persons as stated by the parents in our registration packet. Thank you very much for your cooperation and patience as we become familiar with our new students and families at NSES!
