Dismissal Times Change for Feb. 1, 2021
Due to the impending snow storm, which is scheduled to arrive earlier than predicted, we need to adjust dismissal times for all schools. This decision is driven by the need for an earlier dismissal at our high schools. Because the same buses are used at all levels, the adjustment at the high school impacts all schools. The changes listed below will ensure safe travel for all students and staff.
As announced last week, if we are not able to open our schools on Tuesday, Feb. 2nd, it will be a snow day and school will be cancelled for all students. You will receive additional communication if school is cancelled on Tuesday.
We appreciate your understanding and support as we make difficult decisions with the safety of the NPS community in mind.
All in-person students will be dismissed at 12:00. Van service will run for all routes at this time.
