Q. 1 How do I make sure that I'm getting messages from the District?
  A. The District communicates all information regarding school reopening on it’s website so families and staff are encouraged to check www.nscsd.org daily for updates. Families and staff also receive email, text and telephone messages from the District’s SchoolMessenger system. To communicate with parents/guardians, SchoolMessenger uses contact information from SchoolTool so it is important for families to ensure their contact information is correct in SchoolTool. The District requests annual updates by mailing student data forms home. Additionally, parents/guardians can update their contact information at any time by contacting their child’s school.   

Q. 2 I am getting text messages from the District that tell me to check my email, but I’m not receiving email messages. Who do I contact? 
  A. First, check SchoolTool to ensure that your email information is entered correctly then verify that email messages are not going to your junk/clutter/SPAM folder. If your email information is correct and the messages are not going to one of the junk folders, please contact Laurie Cook at the District Office by email or at (315) 218-2190.
