Kindergarten Registration- March 17th

Northpoint will be holding Kindergarten registration on Tuesday, March 17 at 9 am & 4pm.  Please click here for more information.  If you are a new family to Northpoint, we will also need proof of residency.  Required forms come in two categories.  Category A consists of the following (NEED ONE DOCUMENT):  real estate tax bill, signed lease, mortgage document/payment book, residency attestation, military housing.  Category B consists of the following (NEED TWO DOCUMENTS): bills (gas, electric, water, phone, cable), vehicle registration, bank statement, public aid/Medicaid/food stamp card, paycheck stub, driver’s license/state ID.  Families with students currently enrolled and having already established proof of residency do not need to meet this requirement.  Please call the Northpoint office at 557-4420 to schedule the registration time you would like to attend.

 
 
Happy New Year!  We hope your holidays were wonderful and relaxing!  We are looking forward to a great second half of the school year at Northpoint.  We have a few friendly reminders for everyone as we start the new calendar year:
  • School starts at 8:45 am, students may enter the building at 8:25 am.  Students arriving after this time will be marked tardy and will need to be accompanied to the office to be signed in by a parent.
  • If your child will be late due to an appointment or will be absent due to illness, etc., PLEASE call the Northpoint attendance line by 9:30 am.  That number is 309-557-4469.  This number can also be found on the front page of the Northpoint website.
  • Speaking of the Northpoint website, please take a minute to check it out.  It is full of lots of important information.  The website is www.Unit5.org/Domain/18.  The site lists lunch and recess times, has a current copy of the Northpoint newsletter, PTO information and links, along with lots of other very useful information and links.  We work hard to keep this site up to date, current, and accurate. 
  • Please remember to be courteous during pick-up and drop-off times.  Cooperation by all is critical to a smooth operation.  During drop off and pick up, please remember safety of our students is our first priority.  With that in mind, please be patient, carpool when possible, leave early during inclement weather, and pull all the way around the curb.   Students can exit their cars all along the yellow drop off area, exiting on the passenger side ONLY.  Please do not get out of your car in the drop off lane, do not park in handicap spots without placard, and finally, please be courteous and do not cut into the line.  
  • If your child is sick, they need to be fever free, without medication, for 24 hours.  The same rule applies if they have diarrhea or are vomiting and should not return to school until they are symptom-free for 24 hours. 
  • Please remember that cough drops containing menthol must be accompanied by a completed Unit 5 self-administration form including the physician’s signature.  Citrus Breezers and Luden’s are types that do not contain menthol and therefore, do not require the form.  Most chapsticks and lip therapy ointments are allowed to be carried by students and do not require a doctor’s note. 
  • The Northpoint newsletter is a very valuable source of information and you can find the direct link to the newsletter on the Northpoint website.  The newsletter is published each month and details many happenings and events at Northpoint School.   
  • The 2014-2015 yearbooks are available for purchase!  You may order online at www.jostensyearbooks.com or there are paper forms are available in the office.  Don't miss your only chance to order your yearbook!

Looking forward to a great second half of the school year!

Volunteering at Northpoint

Again this year, all volunteers will complete the online link for volunteer background checks.  The link for those renewing their background screening is available on our Northpoint home page, in the Knight Links section.  Renewing volunteers will not receive a new ID badge unless they request one from the office.   All  NEW volunteers (those that are new to the school OR have never completed the screening) can email Julie (Watsonjm@unit5.org) or Kristin (Brandtkm@unit5.org) for the link to complete the screening.

  

Lice Notice: 
Please be aware that head lice can be present in schools at any time during the school year.  Please check your child if they complain or you notice unusual scratching of the scalp.  Please inform the school if you suspect a case of head lice.
