Parents and guardians are encouraged to sign up to receive text alerts from their student's school and the district. To opt in, text YES to 67587. Text messages are used to provide inclement weather updates and important reminders, and can be opted-out at any time. 

Transportation

If your student is riding the bus this year, make sure to download the VersaTrans My Stop App. Track bus arrival times, delays, and more right from your Apple or Android device. Learn more and get started here.
 

Enrollment & Registration

All NKC Schools families (new and returning) are required to complete the enrollment and registration process each year. Enrollment for new families and all Crestview and Winnwood families opened on March 29, 2023. Enrollment for returning families opened on July 11, 2023.
 

Technology

NKC Schools students use a variety of technology tools to support learning across all grades. All parents and guardians are encouraged to create a Parent Observer account on Canvas, our online learning management system. A parent observer account allows you to view your child's progress, assignments and other information.

Enrollment, along with grade, schedule, bus and other general information may be accessed through the PowerSchool Parent Portal.
 

Food & Nutrition Services

The federal waiver and funding that allowed us to provide free meals for all students ended on in May of 2022. NKC Schools is no longer able to offer free meals for all. If you believe that you might qualify for free or reduced meals, fill out an application online as soon as possible. 

Families are strongly encouraged to apply for the free/reduced price meals program. This ensures discounts on a variety of other programs, including testing, activity fees and more! Apply online here.
 

Forms & Links

As they are updated and become available, each school handbook may be found on individual school websites, under the For Families tab.

Is your student eligible to receive benefits from the Indian Education Program? Learn more and complete a 506 form here.
