Welcome to Week 14!

Our virtual Book Fair continues this week! To make purchases, visit our Book Fair online at North Elementary School Scholastic Book Fair 2020. Last day to make purchases will be Sunday, November 22.  Shipping is free on purchases over $25. Thank you for supporting our school!

As we are tackling the challenging times, please continue to ensure that students arrive at school with a mask, and a water bottle. Additionally, it is very important that students who exhibit any symptoms of Coronavirus are not sent to school. Students who come to the school clinic with symptoms must be picked up within 30 minutes. 

November Fire Drill and Safety Drill will take place this week. 

Roof Repairs

Our roof repair work started this weekend! You will notice equipment and materials stored on the north side of our campus. The contractors will work around our daily schedule to get their work done with minimal interruption to instruction. PE activities will be adjusted for time being to work around the construction area.

Progress Report Day

Wednesday, November 18 is Progress Report Day! Please be on the lookout for a paper copy that is sent home with your child. Grades can also be accessed via Skyward Family Access online.
