Our annual Book Fair ended on Friday, December 5. Parents can still order books for their children through our Online Book Fair and have them delivered to the school. Simply go to: http://onlinebookfairs.scholastic.com/default.aspx?f=3341847.
The North Smithfield Public Schools in conjunction with Technology Department will host its first ever "Time for Technology" event. This event will be offered sometime in late January free of charge to parents, as well as community members. The event will take place at North Smithfield Middle School and a variety of sessions will be offered based on community interest. We will learn your interest through your responses to a short survey. See the attached flyer with the link to the Time for Technology Survey. We would be grateful for your help to get the word out to your friends and family in the North Smithfield community who do not have students in our schools. Hope to see you at our Time for Technology event!
The message below is from Superintendent Lindberg:
School Bus Pickups
Folks - we ask for your cooperation. We have had several complaints about buses being held up by students who are not at the stops [e.g., waiting in cars, or in houses.]
Our Transportation Coordinator, as well as the Bus Company Manager, have asked me to remind all parents that all riders should be at the bus stop, lined up, and ready to board the bus when it arrives. We understand that sometimes this may occur as an “unusual” situation; however, the concern is that it may be happening as the “norm” in some situations. Please do not hold up our buses in this fashion. All of our buses are on a very tight schedule and out of respect for all students they do their best to get your children to school on time. The drivers will remind parents of this practice through next week.
I have been informed that beginning the week of Thanksgiving, the drivers will look for the riders to be visible at the stops. Thank you for your help.
