Dear NPS Family,
If your student has selected the hybrid model of learning and wants to take the bus, you MUST register by Sunday, January 17 at 11:59 p.m. Registration will close on Sunday, January 17 at 11:59 p.m.
If you do not plan to utilize the bus, there is nothing further you need to do right now.
If your student is not registered for the bus by Sunday, January 17 at 11:59 p.m., they will not receive a bus pass. Because of strict state guidelines for physical distancing in transportation, we will not be able to accommodate students who do not have a bus pass.
The NPS School Committee will vote on a prorated bus fee in the coming weeks and the cost will be invoiced to families following the vote. Financial assistance will be available and information will be included with the invoice.
As you know, our bus capacity is severely limited given the reduced seating capacity. We are encouraging families to walk or bike to school if possible.
Thank you in advance for your prompt attention to this issue.
