NDCS Apparel
Unfortunately, we did not have enough orders to put another order in before Christmas. If you did order your money will be refunded to you in the next week. 
SNOW DELAYS/CLOSINGS
Winter weather is fast approaching! In the event we delay or close school you will find this information on ABC27 news, FOX43 news, and our school Facebook page. There will not be a robo call.
If there is a delay at NDCS, but your home school district does NOT have a delay or vice versa, the busses for that school district will not be responsible to bring your student to NDCS.
In the event we close early, you will receive an automated phone message from NDCS to the two phone numbers you listed on your emergency card at the beginning of the school year. We will not post early closings on Facebook for security reasons. 
HIGH SCHOOL DEVOTIONAL 
We still have some devotionals left if you were unable to get one before Thanksgiving. It’s never too late to enjoy these precious works by the students. Please contact Pastor Tom Moulfair through MySchoolworx if you would like one or two or three sent home. 
VOLLEYBALL JERSIES
Please wash and return all jerseys from this year’s volleyball team. This includes middle school t-shirts. 
SCRIP GIFT GUIDE MAGAZINE
Shop with Scrip has come out with a holiday gift guide magazine. They are available in the school office on a first come, first serve basis, they only sent us 25 copies. If there seems to be a need to get more we can certainly try and order more. If you are interested in a copy please contact Barb in the school office.

PARENT Q & A

Can we still purchase race t-shirts and/or a NDCS beanie? 
Yes, both are available by contacting Kelli Welker in the school office. We also have them for sale at the luncheon.

How do I get a copy of the new bylaws? 
The bylaws are available on our new website on the About Us page. 

Can anyone attend the Christmas program?
Yes, we encourage you to invite your friends and family members and enjoy our Christmas program on December 20th at 7 pm.

What if we are going away on vacation and my child is going to miss school?
An educational absence form must be filled out prior to the vacation. They can be sent home by calling the school office and talking to Barb Kimmel. Once the form is filled out and returned, it is approved pending a journal is written about the days they are missing school (not weekend days). Copies of the form will be given to the child’s teacher(s) so they know they will be out and can give them their homework as to not fall behind. When the child returns they are responsible to hand in the journal within three days and get it approved and then their absence will be excused. Otherwise, it will remain unexcused.

What happens if my child forgets their lunch?
We have cans of Chef Boyardee in both lunchrooms for any student who forgets to order lunch or bring their lunch. They are free of charge. 
OFFICE HOURS
8 am to 3 pm
Please keep in mind how hectic mornings are during the school year, if you can possibly just send an email that work and someone will get back to you that day, or wait until at least 9 am when students are settled in their classes and things calm down a bit. Thank you for your consideration with this request.
