Some big changes are in the works for the NPS 2020/2021 school year. A year ago, the school board decided to significantly alter class schedules after a consultant recommended basically flipping the start times for elementary and high school students. The consultant recommended high schools start between 8:50 a.m. and 9:00 a.m and elementary schools between 7:30 a.m. to 7:40 a.m. The exact times have not been announced.
