SIGN UP FOR NEWSLETTERS


From Your Student's School

Each of our schools also prioritizes communication with parents and community members. While each building utilizes different methods depending on their students' ages and needs, a few common methods include:

  • Regular email updates and newsletters shared through Smore or a similar platform
  • Regular updates shared through an app-based system such as ClassDojo
  • Emails, texts and phone calls sent through SchoolMessenger to the contact information you provide during enrollment
    • To opt in to receive text messages, please text YES to 67587.
  • Social media accounts on Facebook, Twitter/X and Instagram
  • In alignment with our efforts to "go green" and minimize paper waste, building-wide letters and information are sent home in students' backpacks only in certain important circumstances. 
  • Your child's teacher may utilize a folder system, planner or other tool to help you stay up-to-date on classroom happenings. 


Urgent Communications

There may occasionally arise a situation where the school needs to contact a parent quickly or in an emergency situation. It is vitally important that we have your correct, current contact information on file for these instances. If you would like to check or update your contact details, please contact your child's school. 

In an emergency or if special precautions like a lockdown or other safety measures are implemented, NKC Schools may utilize any of the direct communication methods above to email, call or text parents and guardians. While we always aim to share information with families as quickly as possible, our first goal is to secure the building and ensure the safety of students and staff. Then, we are able notify families and staff of what we know and our next steps as needed. You can read more about our emergency response plans here
