Please note that the Extended School Care program will open under the following schedule in the case of respective delays:

In cases of unscheduled early dismissals, NPSD will utilize its School Messenger system to notify parents when schools will be dismissing via phone and email. In these cases, the district will call all phone numbers and e-mail addresses that parents have provided on their emergency notification cards so please ensure all information is accurate and up-to-date at students' home schools. 

 

School Messenger is not used for standard two-hour delays or all-day closures due to weather.

When school remains open during inclement weather, the school district recognizes the basic right of parents and guardians to decide whether or not to send their children to school under such conditions. Such absences will be excused. Parents and students should also recognize that school buses may be delayed because of weather conditions.
