NASD hosts orientation event for K-5

NATCHEZ — Parents unsure of where their elementary-aged child will be attending school in a month can get that answer and others at today’s Day in the District.

The Natchez-Adams School District is hosting the orientation event for families of kindergarten through fifth graders from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the Steckler Multipurpose Center on Natchez High School’s campus.

A Day in the District for parents of students in grades six through 12 is set for 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday.

The orientation allows parents to register their children for school and get information on how to apply online for free or reduced lunches.

“(The event) is critical this year because of (school) reorganization,” NASD Superintendent Frederick Hill said.

Maps will be available to illustrate in which zone residents are located — McLaurin, West or Frazier elementary schools. Hill said the assignments are based on a range of addresses on corresponding streets.

To register children for school, parents must bring two proofs of residence such as a utility bill or driver’s license.

Parents may pick also up maps at the Braden Building at 10 Homochitto St. and at each elementary school. Maps will also be on display within the next few days at the George W. Armstrong Library at 220 South Commerce St. and other community facilities. Maps are also posted on the district’s website at www.natchez.k12.ms.us.

For more information on residentially based school attendance zones, call 601-445-2800. The zones are based off the residential locations of students during the 2011-2012 school year.

At Day in the District, parents can also receive information about dress codes, school supplies, parent centers, PTA, extra-curricular activities, staffing, school activities and more.

Durham School Services officials will soon announce information regarding bus numbers, drivers, routes and pickup times. For more information regarding bus-related concerns, contact Jeremy Sutherland or Wayne Strickland at 601-445-2909.
