Frequently Asked Questions

We have learned that parents investigating a new school often have the same set of questions, so we have designed this page to address those basic questions for you. If you do not see your question answered here, please contact us.

What are your school hours?

We begin the day at 8:30 a.m. On Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday, classes end at 3:15 p.m., while on Wednesday, classes end at 2:00 p.m. On Friday, school will let out at 3:00 p.m.

Is there a food plan available?

We are fortunate to be able to offer breakfast and lunch at no charge. Please see our Food Service page for more details.

How can I begin the registration process?

Congratulations on selecting a great school for your child’s education! Please learn more about the registration process on the Registration page.

Does your school enforce a dress code?

We encourage students to dress appropriately for school activities and in keeping with community standards. Appropriate clothing includes, but is not limited to, the following:

  • Clothes appropriate for the weather
  • Clothing that does not create a health or safety hazard
  • Clothing appropriate for the activity (e.g., physical education or the classroom)
What is the protocol for sick days?

In the event that your child misses one day of school due to illness, we require a parent note or phone call. If your child is sick for two or more consecutive days, please send a doctor’s note with your child when he/she returns to school.

What is the school’s stance on bullying?

We emphatically do not tolerate bullying in the Nett Lake School District. We will enforce the consequences outlined in the School Board Policy 514-Bullying Prohibition if we determine that bullying behavior exists.

My child needs to take medication while at school. How can I accommodate this?

A written doctor’s note must accompany all prescription and over-the-counter medications. A pharmacist must label all prescription medications. You must bring all medications to the front office for safe keeping and administration.
