NCLS Weekly Newsletter 11-Sept-2014

Dear Parents:


We had a fantastic first school day! On Sept 7, with the full support from NCLS admin staff, PCC team, Board as well as all teachers and parents, we successfully passed the 1st busy and exciting school day.  It was wonderful to see our students back to the classrooms with smile.  We wish this be a good start to another wonderful school year.

With more new families joining NCLS this school year, we have a total of more than 1300 students now. We are trying our best to make NCLS a safe, enjoyable and quality learning environment for our students.  In order to maximize this goal, your cooperation will be very important.  Based on various feedback from teachers and on-duty PCC members, there are a few things that need to be re-emphasized:

1.  Drop-off and pick-up:

  • Only vehicles with NCLS parking permits can enter Minot Place, no other vehicles  can enter Minot Place during the school time, which is defined as 1:30pm to 5:30pm.  There will be PCC parents on duty guarding and monitoring the entrance to Minot Place  from 1:30 – 5:30 to reinforce the above procedures.
  • Absolutely no drop-off or pick-up on Walnut street at the entrance to Minot Place.
  • The designated drop-off and pick-up area will be the Albermarle Road parking area  behind the school field. Students and parents can walk across the field to the school.

2.  Parking: Since Day school has very limited parking space, only school teachers/staff with parking permit are allowed to park their cars inside parking lot, and all the rest cars can be parked on streets and nearby parking lots:  

3.  Classroom:   Please confirm your classroom number again in our website before you come on Sunday. We had a few changes after the first day.

Please note that students should not enter the classroom before 1:45 pm.  If you arrive early, please stay at the cafeteria.

4.  Book pick up: if you have paid the tuition but have not picked up your text book, please follow this instruction link to print out the book pick up slip before you come to library to pick up the book.

If you have any questions regarding registration, payment, class, you can come to the library this coming Sunday.

As always, thanks for your support and see you on Sunday.
