On Tuesday, February 10, Halliwell Grade 5 students received information to register for Grade 6 NSMS Electives for the 2015-16 school year. A handout was provided with directions to students and parents to register using the Parent Portal at http://ic.nsps.us/campus/portal/NSmithfield.isp.
Student ID numbers are being used as the student's User Name. The Student ID numbers are located on their report cards and also accessed through the Parent Portal. Registration for electives will take place from February 6 through February 20. Should you have any questions, contact John Lahar, NSMS Principal, or William Pepin, Director of Guidance (401-766-2503).
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.
Please know that per State and Federal Regulations, our schools are required to hold fire drills each month of the year. Please be sure that your child is wearing warm clothes as the weather turns colder (sweatshirts, sweaters, coats). Thank you for your help.
