NCA Families,

Last Friday, September 29th, a letter was sent home regarding a case of head lice found in the school. This is not cause for panic. It is cause for proactive measures to be taken to help prevent the spread of head lice. It is important to check your student's head regularly and treat them immediately if nits or lice are found. A copy of the letter is attached for your review, along with a link to the CDC head lice treatment guide.

The Lake Superior State University Charter Schools Office, has requested that we post the following notice regarding the possible uses of student directory information.

"Section 1136(6) of the Revised School Code, MCL 380.1136(6), requires the Lake Superior State University Board of Trustees, as a public school academy authorizing body, to prepare a list of uses or instances the University commonly discloses regarding a student's directory information. "Directory information" means information contained in a student's education record that would not generally be considered harmful or an invasion of privacy if disclosed. Even though the University does not maintain student K-12 educational records or student directory information for any student attending the public school academies that the University Board authorizes, the law requires a public school academy's authorizing body to disclose to you a list of uses or instances the University may commonly disclose your student's directory information. In addition, the law gives you the opportunity to elect not to have your student's directory information disclosed for 1 or more of these uses or instances."

You may download the entire notice and list of uses, along with the opt out form, here. If you are unable to open the file, or would like a printed copy of the form sent home with your student, please contact our office at 231-584-2080 and we will gladly assist you. If you wish to opt out, please complete the form and return it to the NCA front office so that we may forward it on to LSSU.
The North Central Academy Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) is looking for new members for the 2017-2018 year.
