Drop Off & Pick Up

NLCS does have a busing system as this time. All students are dropped off at school by their parent or guardian. Our school day begins at 8:20 and ends at 3:20.

Absences & Late Arrivals

Our school day begins at 8:20AM and ends at 3:20PM.

If your child is absent, please email a note to the front office. See our Student/Parent Handbook in your FACTS Portal for more information.

If your child is late to school on a given day, they will stop by the front office. To ensure your child’s class is not already at an enrichments class elsewhere on campus, we will call your child’s teacher and make sure they are in the classroom before sending your child to class. If your child’s class is currently in a another building on campus for an enrichment class, we will make sure they get there safely. Children from Kindergarten to 3rd Grade will be escorted by an adult.


Wednesdays are Chapel Days! Chapel is a favorite among many of our children. Chapel takes place in the auditorium where children get to experience the Love of Christ through musical worship and an interactive, developmentally appropriate message.


After Care

If you are unable to pick up your child before 3:30, they will be escorted to our After Care program. Children are supervised by a trained adult. During After Care, children have the opportunity to play outside (weather permitting), start their homework, or read.  Learn More. 


Lunch takes place in the Gymnasium. Children will bring a packed lunch to school each day, however, on Tuesdays and Thursdays there is an optional hot lunch. On Tuesdays, hot lunch is catered by Chick-fil-A. On Thursdays, lunch is catered by Pistaro’s.

Outdoor Education

At NLCS, children have the opportunity to connect with nature in many ways. Our teachers are trained in hands-on learning techniques that often take place outside. In addition, our campus boasts a beautiful outdoor classroom. Students have recess daily, which is an important part of developing social skills and athletic development.

Visiting & Security

Our NLCS campus has security protocol that we practice regularly. All visitors are required to enter through the front office doors and sign in. Please bring your driver’s license with you.

We encourage you to purchase athletic gear and swag on our School Gear Store.

Students K-12 wear uniforms. You can purchase uniforms for your child here. See our Student / Parent Handbook for our school code.
