North Beach School District embraces and honors the individuality each child brings to school, knowing in our hearts all are capable and worthy of achieving great things.
Because of this knowledge, we will encourage and nurture every student’s growth as a learner and a caring member of society by providing a safe environment where we model and expect commitment, tolerance, respect and perseverance.
And, as they grow in heart and mind, we will provide resources and mentoring to empower our graduates as life-long scholars who are valuable members of their community, whatever academic path they pursue.
As this school year wears down, North Beach School District is already looking ahead at possible scenarios for the start of the 2020-2021 school year. Today, the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) released their guidance for schools to utilize in planning for the coming school year.
The salary schedule for North Beach teachers is in direct correlation to our commitment to our students and improving student achievement.
The State of Washington has increased food benefits for families who qualify for Free and Reduced-Price School Meals. If your family's income has recently decreased, you need to act by June 30.
Meal deliveries to young people 0-18 will continue this summer thanks to a partnership between the district and Green Lantern. If you haven't been receiving these free meals but want to start, follow the link on this page to sign up.
As part of his evaluation, Superintendent Kelly provides evidence of progress toward the goals that the district has set. View his presentation to Tuesday night's board meeting here.
State Issues Mask Challenge; We Ask You Consider Donating to our Schools, Too
Do you sew? Are you ready for a challenge?
Washington state’s lieutenant governor Cyrus Habib has announced a mask-making challenge.
Go to the Washington Mask Challenge website at https://www.ltgov.wa.gov/mask-challenge for instructions on how to make the masks and how to donate them.
They are asking for 10 at a time, so you would have to be willing to commit to making at least 10. We know many of you out there are already making masks, so good job and happy sewing!
For NBSD schools, School Nurse Libby Meador is also asking that for every ten you make to donate to a hospital or other organization in need, consider making one for your school in preparation for our return to on-site operations in the fall.
A reminder from Ms. Meador, masks are a helpful added measure but we shouldn’t let them give us a false sense of security. The best way to slow the spread of COVID-19 is by following social-distancing guidelines and washing your hands. Wearing a mask can also help you to remember to keep your hands off of your face, too!
If you have masks you would like to donate to our schools, please contact our school nurse at email@example.com
