The following information was shared with families recently, but also bears repeating:

 

Families who purchased the Device Protection Program plan during the 2023-24 school year have coverage for their student device from the date purchased through Sept. 6, 2024 to allow families time to report damage sustained during summer when schools are closed. Any family who has not already purchased but would like to have coverage in place for the summer is able to purchase a plan online using TouchBase until August 1. Beginning on Aug. 15, 2024, families will be able to purchase the DPP plan for coverage beginning on Sept. 3, 2024 and continuing for the 2024-25 school year.

As a reminder, the Device Protection Plan program covers the device (Chromebook, Macbook, or iPad) loaned to your student against accidental damage for the school year. This program does NOT cover damage resulting from misuse or loss of the device. The standard payment to enroll in the Student Device Protection Plan is $25 per year; free for students who have qualified for free or reduced-price meals and who have provided consent to share their status for fee waivers. Learn more about the program on our website.

PRIDE MONTH

 

In my last community newsletter I shared information about the rainbow flag. My intent was to explain that we do not TEACH sex or pronouns, we simply celebrate and empower everyone and how they identify as individuals and as families. Afterward I realized that I may have inadvertently dismissed our LGBTQ+ community. MY SINCEREST APOLOGIES! Intent and impact can easily be misunderstood in writing 😐 


The Northshore School District is committed to creating a safe, caring, and respectful environment for all students, families, and staff. During the month of June, the District celebrates and recognizes Pride to commemorate the Stonewall riots, recognize the global impact that the LGBTQIA2S+* community has had, and advocate for actionable steps to affirm and amplify the voices of our own LGBTQIA2S+ community. For more information regarding NSD's inclusive policies and practices, click here.

  • The Northshore School District (NSD) will be hosting its 11th Community Serve Day on Aug. 25. Community Serve Day is a collaborative effort between local churches, school districts, PTSA’s, nonprofits and businesses that mobilize as one for the community.
