*Change of Address-If the home address, home/cell phone number or guardianship of your child changes, please contact the Guidance Secretary, Mrs. Linsen at linsenl@npenn.org or call 215-853-1890.

*ID Cards-ID Cards are available from Mrs. McGlinn in the Office for $3.00.

*Lunch Accounts-Remember to put money into your child's lunch account. Registration is easy just visit www.schoolcafe.com and follow the on-screen instructions to create an account. Families can add each student by entering each child's Student ID number. There is no cost to create an account, to receive notifications when an account balance is low, to view a student's account balance 24/7 or to monitor student purchases. However, SchoolCafe does charge 5% convenience fee each time a deposit is made and the minimum payment amount is $20.00. There is also a toll free number (1-855-729-2328) that families can call to make payments and check their student's account if they do not have access to the Internet. The same transaction fee is charged for payments made over the phone and online. It is important to remember that there is NO CHARGE for NPSD families who use SchoolCafe but who send cash or checks to the school cafeteria for deposit. There is only a charge for online payments. If sending cash or checks, it is important to provide the student ID number and checks should be made payable to NPSNS.

*Student Absences-All absences should be made by a phone call, email or fax; followed by an excuse note upon their return to school. If your student arrives late, they must present an excuse for tardiness at the attendance office. If a phone call, email or fax is not received by the attendance office, the absence will be marked unexcused.

*Student Illness/Nurse-Students are not permitted to use cell phones during the school day and should not be using cell phones to call home when they are ill. Students need to visit the nurse and the nurse will determine if the parent should be called to come and get the student. Please remind your students regarding this rule.

*Vacations-If going on vacation during the school year, please make sure to notify the attendance office. You will need to send a note at least one (1) week in advance to Mrs. McGlinn. If your absence will exceed ten (10) school days, you will need to notify the registrar office, Deb Bozzo, at the ESC to make an appointment to re-register your student(s) before returning to school.
