2018/2019 School Year

Welcome to the North Dickinson County School web-page. It is my sincere hope that students will have a successful and rewarding school experience. The community, staff and Board of Education has provided our students with many opportunities to grow accademically, socially, and physically. Our school staff is made up of many caring and dedicated people who will work very hard to give the best educational experience possible. In return, we ask our students to put forth their best effort in all of their classes and get involved in school activities.

If there is any way I can help you during the school year, please be sure to ask; my door is always open.

Sincerely,

Mrs. Angel R. Inglese
Superintedent/Principal

No Overnight Parking

Just a friendly reminder that overnight parking is not permitted on the school property during the snow removal season. Unauthorized overnight parking may result in your vehicle being towed at your expense. If an emergency arises and you cannot avoid overnight parking, you must contact Mr. Darrell Oman to make arrangements to have your vehicle parked in an area that will still allow for efficient snow and ice removal. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

School Parking & Traffic

This is to inform those new to our area and a reminder to the rest of us about parking and traffic at the school. First there is no vehicle traffic allowed around the north, east and west sides of the school from 8:00 a.m. – 3:25 p.m. on school days. During the day school buses and school maintenance vehicles are the only vehicles permitted past the fence on the west side, and bus garages on the east side. This is to protect the kids during recess, when going to and from the football field, the outdoor trails, and bus loading and unloading times. The speed limit on school grounds is “SLOW”. There are a lot of children from toddler ages to teens. Often younger children don’t know enough to pay attention and do dart out from behind parked cars.

Students are to park in the lower parking lot always. Do not block the walkways between the lower lot and the upper lot. The visitor parking spaces in the upper parking lot is reserved for visitors. School employees or other personnel who work at the school should not use these parking spaces.

The front of the school is a loading and unloading zone. Please don’t park on or block the cement sidewalk. The loading zone should be limited to 15 minutes or less. School buses, school maintenance vehicles and law enforcement have an area designated for parking in front of the flag pole. The parking rules in front of the school and by the sidewalk apply during and after school hours and events. After school is out for the day there is additional parking around the back side of the school.

Please refrain from using the handicap parking unless you have a current handicap sticker. Violators could be ticketed.
 
Attention Parents

Students are not allowed to be in the building unattended. Many students have been staying after school for late practice. Students that intend to stay after school either for late practice, to play sports, or watch an athletic event, need to have pre-arranged adult supervision or be in student lounge on days it is open. Unattended students will be asked to leave the premises.
