Wake Up and Realize the Need

The NW Student Council is sponsoring the "Wake Up and Realize the Need" fundraiser.  This service project is a wonderful way to help some of our students who are too old for the Angel Tree.  The gifts we give them may be the only ones they receive during Christmas.  This service project is a huge success due to your support and generosity.  We will be collecting money through Friday, December 14.  Elementary and high school students will bring their money to their homeroom teacher.  There will be an elementary homeroom and a high school homeroom winner who will receive popcorn and a movie.  Thank you so much for supporting this project!

This Friday, October 12, we will be recognizing our Warrior Heroes.  We are dedicating the football game to these heroes to raise awareness of our children with disabilities.  The Warrior football team will be playing Friday night in honor of our Warrior Heroes who fight battles everyday that many of us know nothing about.  They will play for those who may not ever have the opportunity to participate in sports that many of us take for granted.  We are planning to pass donation buckets at the game so that we can donate all proceeds to the school district’s Special Olympics.  If you will not be at the game but want to donate, please see Mrs. Hodge.

Attention-Policy Change

October 5, 2018 

Parents and Students, 

The Louisville Municipal School Board made two changes to the student handbook on October 4, 2018 board meeting. 

The first change relates to drug testing (See page 54 in the student handbook).

 If the 28th day falls on a Saturday or Sunday or a holiday, the student can be tested on the Friday prior to the 28th day. 

The second change relates to vaping and vape paraphernalia (See page 36 of the student handbook.). This change treats vaping as a serious offense. Note that the consequences for having a vaping product in one’s possession can result in ISS, OSS or expulsion. 

Use of, or possession of alcohol or illegal drugs (including Vapes, Vaping products, e-cigarettes, etc.) on or near school grounds or at school sponsored events will constitute steps 5 to 6 on the policy discipline ladder.

STOPit App empowers students to stand up against bullying

 LMSD/Nanih Waiya has enrolled with STOPit, the leading technology platform for schools that deters and controls harmful or inappropriate conduct. STOPit empowers students with an easy app to safely and anonymously report anything of concern to school officials – from cyberbullying to threats of violence or self-harm. STOPit empowers   students to stand up for themselves and others while giving our schools the insight we need to keep students safe.

With STOPit, students can submit anonymous reports containing text, photos, or video. Administrators are then able to manage incidents in a backend management system called DOCUMENTit. DOCUMENTit provides efficient and powerful investigative tools to our staff, including the ability to message with the reporter, which will allow us to address issues instantly.

STOPit does more than just help schools address incidents and mitigate risk. STOPit will also help us go beyond reacting to bullying and inappropriate behavior, and instead start deterring it. As young people continue to engage more with technology every day, we are taking a proactive step to empower our students to become Upstanders in our community in the way that they feel most comfortable. We believe our adoption of STOPit is an important step in our continued effort to provide a positive school climate and a safe learning environment for our students.
