Parent Lunch Info

Parents,

We welcome you to come and enjoy lunch with your student on the stage! However, when joining your student for lunch, only your student is permitted to eat with you on the stage.  Lately, there has been an issue with multiple students dining with one adult taking up the limited seating and generating lots of traffic in the stage area with students moving between their classroom seating and the stage area.

Thank you for your cooperation in making sure we provide ample space for guest diners and in reducing the amount of traffic at the stage area.

Transportation Changes Policy

It is our goal to ensure that all Nickajack students are transported safely to their afternoon destination. To achieve this goal, any change to your child’s afternoon transportation must be submitted in writing to our front office staff.  We will not accept any verbal requests on the phone or any requests sent via email.

We ask parents to make all transportation changes clear to the student before they leave home in the morning.  Parents should send a note with the change information (see below) with the student.

However, there are times when a change is necessary after the instructional day has begun.  In these instances the request must be in writing and faxed to the school no later than 1:30 p.m. on the day of the change.

Required Information:    Transportation Change Form

  • Student’s name

  • Teacher’s name

  • Date(s) the change will be effective

  • Identify the new mode of transportation

  • Parent’s name (printed)

  • Parent’s signature

  • Parent contact information – i.e. cell phone number, email, etc.

  • Please call to verify that your fax was received. 
  • Do not send transportation changes to the teachers via email.
