If an NKMS student is ill, parents are asked to call the NKMS attendance office at (314) 213-6100 extension 7020  before 8:00AM on the day a student is absent and provide a reason for the absence.

    In order for a student to be excused, a parent or guardian must call or write a note. Any student who has been ill should not return to school until his or her temperature and or other symptoms (diarrhea or vomiting) have subsided for 24 hours.  Parents are asked to call in each day your child will not be attending school. Students must be at school to attend any after-school activity or ceremony.


    All students who arrive late to school (after 8:10 AM) should report to the main office to sign-in.  The students will receive a yellow slip from a secretary and be expected to go directly to their locker and then to class. 


    Parents/Guardians must sign out their child in the main office.  

    Students returning to school after an appointment are to sign-back-in with the main office where they will receive a yellow pass admitting them back to class.


    If a student brings a valid note for early dismissal, it should be taken to the main office before school so a yellow slip can be issued noting the time of dismissal. The student will give the pass to the teacher at the beginning of the period in which the student is to be dismissed.
