Good Evening Nolan Families - We wanted to remind everyone that tomorrow is the first day of school for all students in grades 1 through 5 and some Kindergarten students who will be coming for phase in.  

Just as last year, students can begin arriving at 8:20 each morning when our teachers are on duty.  Our first bell will sound each morning at 8:40releasing students to their classrooms and students will be marked tardy if they arrive after the 8:45 tardy bell.  

In the afternoons, we will begin our dismissal procedures at 3:35 each afternoon.  If your child will be a car rider, please be sure to not arrive too early as we do not want to block the drive going to SMMHS.  Instead, a good rule of thumb is to plan your arrival somewhere around 3:45 as this will greatly assist with our traffic flow.  For additional information on our morning and afternoon car line procedures, please see the information posted on our school website.  

As a reminder, our buses may be running a little late for the first few days of school and our car lines may move a little slower as everyone settles into their routines.  As always, we appreciate your patience as our number one priority is getting our children home safely each afternoon.  

In closing, we do have a few additional August dates that we would like to share.  Our Kindergarten parent meeting will take place on Tuesday, August 15 beginning at 6:00 and our 3rd grade parent meeting will take place on Wednesday, August 16 at 6:30.  

Our PTA will be hosting New to Nolan meetings for parents on the morning of Wednesday, August 16 beginning at 9:30 in the cafeteria and then again that evening beginning at 6:30 in the cafeteria.  

Our 5th grade parent meeting will take place on Thursday, August 17 at 6:00 and there will be a Boy Scout informational meeting on that same evening beginning at 6:30 in the cafeteria.  

Our 4th grade parent meeting will take place on Tuesday, August 22 at 6:00 and Mrs. Manley's and Mrs. Kincer's parent meetings will take place on the evening of Wednesday, August 23 at 6:00.  

Finally, our 1st grade parent meeting will take place on Thursday, August 24 at 6:00 and our 2nd grade parent meeting will take place on Tuesday, August 29 at 6:00.  

As always, thanks so much for your continued support of your students, our teachers, and our school as we look forward to seeing everyone tomorrow at Nolan! 

-Shane D. Harwood, Ed.D.
