Attendance Recognition—We would like to recognize these high school students on their first semester perfect attendance! They arrived to school and each class on time...every day! Austin L, Spencer T, Brittany S, Rachel H, Rachel S, Matthew D, Alex B, Brycen W, Dustin F, Colton N, Shane B, Ryan J, Josh A, Skyler R.Family Lunch Accounts—New this year is the establishment of family meal accounts so that all meal transactions for a family are drawn from one central account. If a student currently has a lunch balance, funds will be drawn from this account first. Once the student account is reduced to a zero balance, the student's meal transactions will cause a transfer of funds from the family account to cover the cost of their purchases. To deposit funds to the family account, log into the JMC Parent portal, select Lunch and click on 'Make Online Deposit (Family Account)'. If you do not want a Family Lunch Account, email email@example.com.
High School Attendance—Click here to view the new Board-approved high school student attendance policy effective immediately. Please note: student absences due to a doctor’s appointment must have a doctor’s note and students will not be allowed to leave the building to go home or to their vehicles to retrieve items. These attendance policy changes also impact eligibility for post-secondary education opportunity/online/academy classes.
After School Study Time at Middle School—As we begin second semester, we are starting a program to help students make up assignments and assessments. We will intervene weekly if a student is failing or scoring 2.0 in a class. Most likely it means a student has missing assignments or assessments. This program will be updated every Monday. We are hoping by intervening early and requiring students to stay after school, students will get caught up, increase learning and will see the importance of meeting deadlines.

Coach B Wins 500—Coach B made history on December 9, becoming the 37th coach in the 104 years of the Iowa High School Athletic Association history to win 500 games in a career! With a 53-33 win over Lenox, Coach B became the 13th active coach to reach the 500-career win milestone! CONGRATULATIONS, COACH B! Congratulations to all the players and managers that helped make this happen, to all the assistant coaches, and to all the awesome NV and B-F Fans!
Early Release Wednesdays—Please remember that during the 2014-2015 school year we will have a one-hour early release each Wednesday. This time will be used for professional learning designed to improve student achievement. This allows NV to better meet collaboration and peer review requirements plus teacher collaboration is a powerful way to improve instruction.
JMC Parent Access—Parents of students in Grades PK-12 may access their student grade, lunch and report card information by logging into JMC. Watch this video to learn how to use this tool. At the 10:38 mark be sure to view the Period Attendance and Grade Alert options. Parents of students in Grades PK-3 are able to access breakfast and lunch information only.
