NUSD is offering a workshop April 23 to give parents an introductory look into the subject of bullying. The workshop is designed to create a common language about bullying and provide information and tools parents can use to recognize bullying when it occurs and help prevent it from happening. Workshop participants will have opportunities to network with other parents, brainstorm ideas about how to talk about bullying with their children and strategies to address bullying at home and at school. The workshop will be from 6:30-8 p.m. April 23 in the Staff Development Center at 1931 Arena Blvd.
Please take a moment to review the tech policies that have been added to our Technology page. Our goals are to ensure college and career readiness, that all students achieve at high levels, and that we are providing a safe and positive campus culture. These tech policies were crafted with these goals in mind. It is important for all students and families to understand the exciting era we are in at LGA--one which requires a significant degree of personal responsibility on the part of each student. Students are asked to bring their devices to school to use as a part of the learning process. We are working with all of our students on what acceptable use looks like, and creating a structure that will encourage them to focus their technology efforts towards an academic end during the school day.

State law requires that all students receive a whooping cough booster shot (Tdap) before entering 7th grade. To enter class on the first day of school, such students must have provided the district either with proof of immunization or a signed exemption form. As soon as possible, families should provide schools with their child’s immunization record. Tdap exemption forms can be obtained from site secretaries and must be filled out by a pediatrician. Tdap protects adolescents and adults against tetanus and diphtheria, as well as pertussis, commonly called whooping cough.
Three NUSD Tdap clinics are planned in April and May, before school starts for 2014-15.
