Does your student have an Office 365 account?
If you use Office 365
through your child's student account, please be aware that
the passwords have been changed. The password is your
child's network password, which is now their birthdate in
month/day format. For example, if your child's
birthday is April 7, their password is 0407. If you
have any questions, please contact Mrs. Messinger in the

Student Dismissal Transportation Changes
Dismissal is one of the most
important times in our day.
We work hard to ensure that our students get to their
afterschool destination safely.
We will not take transportation changes over the
phone, via fax or via email.
This is a safety measure that we MUST enforce to keep
your child safe.
Nicholson Transportation Change form, with a
signature, must be sent in with your student in order for us
to change your student’s afternoon transportation.
If the student arrives in
the morning without this form the parent/guardian must come
into the front office to fill one out since a signature is
If you are
picking up your student at dismissal and do not have a
carpool tag, it is necessary for you to come into the front
office and show identification before we can release the
student into your custody.
All early dismissals or transportation
changes must be received before 1:45 pm.
PARENTS AND COMMUNITY MEMBERS!!
In our efforts to establish Nicholson Elementary as a safe,
welcoming and purposeful learning environment, we have
implemented a framework called Positive Behavioral
Interventions and Supports (PBIS).
PBIS actively encourages students to achieve their
academic potential while also behaving with good character.
At Nicholson, the focus is on teaching and
encouraging appropriate behavior in all areas of the school,
concentrating on the instruction of how to be a
Accountable, and Respectful.
Students who exhibit the characteristics of a
Nicholson Star maximize their learning experience and do not
detract from the learning opportunities of their classmates.
