We are pleased to welcome you to the 2020-2021 school year!
First, we wish to inform parents and community of the School Board's change of the status of the 2020-2021 School Year Start. In addition, the District announced the provision of the use of devices (Chromebooks for Middle School) for students to use to learn both remote and at school when in-school learning can take place
Please see the documents at right to learn information about technology and materials pick up and the adjusted Fall schedule for the 2020-2021 School Year.
In addition, instruction for most students will begin electronically on August 24. There will be Materials Pick-up Days held at North MS August 18 – 21 (different grades are assigned for which days). See the details in the document at right. Should you have more than one student at North (in more than one grade), please let us know on which day you will be coming to pick up technology and supplies, and we will try to all students ready.
- VERY IMPORTANT: If you received a computer in the spring, YOU MUST RETURN IT AT THE PICK UP. You will not be able to pick up a Chromebook until the spring computer is returned. Those computers do not belong to North MS, and must be returned.
We wanted to let you know as soon as possible that the Board of Education voted to NOT CHARGE TECHNOLOGY FEES for this year. Of course, we do ask that you take very good care of the Chromebooks so we don't need to find funds to fix them, please!
- School District 11 has made the decision to postpone Middle School Athletics until at least the end of the first quarter. Alternative athletic schedules will be ready for when students return to our buildings. The decision to postpone athletics was made through discussions between District Administration, School Administration and guidance from CHSAA.
- Park & Rec has had to delay the Fall football season to the spring. Call the P&R office for a full refund, or you may transfer the current registration to the spring activity.
- From our Building Manager: I hope you have had a nice, relaxing summer. Please be reassured that the first priority of your North building team is the safety, health and cleanliness of North Middle School. Our department has an intensive system to keep germs down to a minimum in the building by following CDC, El Paso County Health Department and District 11 best practices. We get new information on a daily basis and we take our responsibilities very seriously. I will do my best to keep you informed of any new updates.
Please also not that if this were the beginning of a normal school year, you would all get a pile of paperwork the first day to read and process. Life as it is, however, means that for the next couple of weeks you will get rather more electronic communications than usual. We apologize in advance, and thank you for your patience.
On the right-hand side of this screen, please see the Parents' Rights and the Title 1 Annual Notification Letter. Please note that the number to call if you have students at North in different grades has changed to 328-2427.
Finally, (for now, anyway,) both breakfast and lunch will be served at North MS on school days. There will be enough time to allow students to get their meals and return home in time for instruction. Breakfast is free to all North students, and lunches will be on the regular sliding scale from free to regular prices. This year's prices will be published as soon as we have them. These are meals for just our North students and kids will need to show their last year's IDs or know their D11 Student ID number in order be served.
