Weekly Delivery Service: 

Our First Student Bus service has graciously offered to be our District delivery service while we are distance learning.  This is in addition to the lunch service. 


The district has been broken up into regions and each region has been assigned a day of the week for delivery. We will be reaching out to each family letting them know their day to expect deliveries.  If the student needs to return any work or the few forms that we were not able to get on FamiyID please send them on your day.  


We encourage families to get a waterproof container of some kind and set it outside your door and clearly mark it BUS DROP OFF.  Then the driver can make sure it’s in a safe place and won’t get ruined by our crazy weather. If you have something to return to the school please fill out this form https://forms.gle/yPCPibZL7kpMuoE78 or call the school office, put it in the tub and it will be picked up. The Pick-up part of the system is will being developed and we will update you soon. We have ordered bags for each of our students and when those come in we will send them out and we would like to reuse the same bag that will have the students name on it.  If you have any questions please contact the office via phone, email (carlan@nknsd.org; erind@nknsd.org) , or remind (link).

Lets Get MOVING!!

Our school district staff, students and families are invited to participate in a NKN SD Fitness Challenge for the months of October and November.
This is a free program to try and get people moving during CDL. There is also a little competition built in…the building with the most time logged gets bragging rights, and the person with the most time logged gets a cool prize…TBD. All participants who set a goal and meet their goal during the two months will receive a free t-shirt in early December. The t-shirts will be designed soon. Stay tuned.
Participants are asked to log their activities and time spent doing activity for the two months by:
– using this Google Form link: NKN Activity Tracker Google Form 
To get the printed form please contact erind@nknsd.org and we will send it to you.
Note from Tech Support:
Hi Parents!
I have been holding weekly parent tech support meetings on Friday during the day, and a couple parents mentioned that they were working and couldn’t attend. So this week I will host the meeting on Thursday, October 1 from 6-7PM.
Join me on the Zoom meeting below this Thursday, and get answers to your questions you have about technology.
