Parent Notification of BMI/Scoliosis Screening Dear Parents: On February 5h we will be doing BMI/Scoliosis screening on all 8th grade students. The procedure for screening is a simple one in which the child’s back is observed as he/she stands upright and as he/she bends forward. To observe this condition, each child will be asked to remove their shirt. The screening will be conducted in privacy with only the student and nurse present. Any curvature or “back hump” that is noticed during the screening may indicate the need for further evaluation. If a problem is found, you will be notified, and we will recommend that you take your child to the physician of your choice for evaluation. It is a state mandated screening. If you do not want your student to participate in the scoliosis screening you will need to let us know in writing before the screening date. Phone calls will not be accepted. If your child does not participate you will have to take them to a physician and have the screening done and return a record from the doctor with the results of the screening. Thank you, Tonya Green RN, BSN School Nurse Telephone Number: (501) 771-8200 Fax Number: (501) 771-8206
From the office of transportation: To the parents of NLR Middle School, High School, COE, and Academy: starting Tuesday, January 22, 2019, all students will be required to wear their name badges before entering the bus. Students who refuse to comply may be subject to not being allowed to get on the bus. The handbook already requires that all students wear their name badges. This is a safety concern. By regulation, we are required to know all of the individuals who are being transported by our buses as well as where they were sitting (seating chart). Besides it being required, it helps us protect your children, identify them for disciplinary issues, as well as locate your children in case of emergencies.

Parents: This is a reminder that the district has a no charge policy for meals. Parents can sign up with MyPaymentsplus.com or send money with their child to school.
