Field Day Volunteers Needed

Dear NPES Parents:


Our Annual Field Day will take place on Friday, May 5th. Our “rain date” is Wednesday,     May 10th. We are planning a great day of excitement for our students as they will have the opportunity to participate in fun play “stations” throughout the day. To assist us with making our Annual Field Day a success, we are seeking parent volunteers to operate the “stations” as students rotate through them. For those who wish to volunteer, you have the option of operating a station all day, or certain parts of day, if you also wish to spend time with your own child(ren). However, volunteering to operate a station all day will make things run smoother. Check-in for parent volunteers will be from 9:10 a.m. – 9:30 a.m. in the gymnasium on the day of the event. At check-in you will receive instructions in regards to the station you will be operating and also a wrist band in order for you to eat lunch, provided by the school. Only those parents who volunteer to operate a station will be provided lunch by the school. There will be a school-wide common lunch period on this day which will be from 12:00 p.m. -12:40 p.m.


In conclusion, we are very excited about our Annual Field Day and look forward to having you participate. All volunteers are asked to wear our school colors. J


Thank you,



Chanel Woods, Principal

NPES Field Day is on Friday, May 5TH!


Dear Parent(s):


We will be conducting our Annual Field Day on Friday, May 5th.  Our “rain date” is Wednesday, May 10th. We have an exciting day planned for our students, faculty, and participating parents. There are numerous fun stations that will be set up for our students. Please have your child wear comfortable clothing with athletic shoes. Some of the stations involve water so you may want to send an extra shirt with your child. Bathing suits are not allowed. Also, if you wish for your child to wear sunscreen please apply it before they come to school. Do not send your child to school with a bottle of sunscreen.


All students will have a common lunch period from 12:00-12:40. You may send your child with a bag lunch unless you have already made arrangements with his/her teacher to get a lunch from the cafeteria. The cafeteria bag lunch menu is below. Please choose beverages below.


Please fill out the bottom portion of this letter and return it to your child’s homeroom teacher by Friday, April 28th.  The cost for a bag lunch will be the same that your child pays during the school year.


Please return the bottom portion by Friday, April 28th.

Parking Lot Safety!

We are having issues, mainly in the afternoon during dismissal, with parking lot safety. While limited parking has been a long time issue at NPES, improvement is needed to ensure that safety is a priority. Parents and visitors are reminded that cars are not to be parked in “No Parking” areas as it blocks traffic. Also, we are having issues with unsafe speeds being used when driving through the parking lot which have almost resulted in people being hit. We need cooperation from everyone to rectify these concerns. Thanks in advance.

Summer Attire Notice

Due to the change in weather our students are dressing much cooler as expected. We want our students to be comfortable and also ensure that appropriate clothing is worn to school. Please adhere to the dress code guidelines below. Failure to comply with these guidelines will result in parents being contacted to bring a change of clothing. Thanks in advance for your support and cooperation.

  • Halter tops, tank tops, and sundresses with spaghetti straps are not to be worn. Shirts with the student’s back exposed are not allowed as well.

    • Tank top straps must be at least 2 inches wide.

  • All shorts, skirts and sundresses must come to the student’s finger tips as they hold their arms at the side of their legs.

  • Flip-flop sandals are not to be worn.

    • For safety reasons all sandals must have a strap around the ankle.

Parents/Guardians may view the current report card in Home Access Center (HAC) which is accessible from the Suffolk Public Schools’ and building websites. All guardians have access to academic performance in HAC with an account that was created by the division. Parents that do not know their HAC credentials must contact the school their child attends for support in gaining access to the account. Additionally, all students have been provided with an account to access their academic performance in HAC. Students will use their SPS computer credentials to access their HAC account.
