INCOMPLETES for not doing work matter for students!!!
When students don't complete 4th Quarter work it has a negative impact on them.
First is the stress felt by now having to make up the work not completed during the 4th
Quarter and the feeling of being overwhelmed.
Second is that once teachers are released for the summer students are still responsible to
complete work in order to PASS their 4th Quarter subjects. Getting help from teachers will
be more difficult after June 3rd. Teachers have regular "office hours" now.
Third, if a student has incompletes for the 4th Quarter they could be ineligible for
for extra curriculars in the fall. Things are changing daily and we do not yet know what the State of Ohio or the OHSAA will determine as the summer months move on. It's easy to complete the work now incase the worse case is decided. Please don't risk it.
Fourth, students need to complete work in all subjects. We've heard rumors students
think completing all the work in one subject will get them a PASS for the 4th Quarter. This
is not true. Students must complete work in all subjects just as they did when coming into
the school building for classes.
How do I know if my child is completing the work?
1. CONTACT YOUR CHILD'S TEACHER NOW!!! NMS teachers and staff want our
students to PASS their subjects.
2. CHECK POWER SCHOOL. When students/parents log into their PowerSchool account
you will see under Q4 and [ i ]. If you click on that [ i ] it will take you to the class page
with the grades. Remember, you will either see a P or an I. "P" means that your student
passed that weeks work, "I" means the work is incomplete. If you have questions you can
reach out to the classroom teacher NOW. We are here to help the best we can.

Arrival and Dismissal Safety
Parents and Guardians are reminded that they must pull their vehicles completely around the cones on the side of building by the school parking lot and drop their students off at the cross walk. If you can park you are permitted to walk with your child and cross at the crosswalk. Thank You!!!
Parents may park in the large side lot or spaces in the front of the building if picking students up after school. If you choose the large side lot, buses will circle around the parking spaces and line up in the front of the building before students will cross to the side lot parking spaces to meet parents.
