SCHOOL MEAL INFORMATION

For your convenience, School Nutrition Services now provides online free/reduced price school meal applications, school meal account payments and information all in one place! It is one stop for all processes at: www.schoolcafe.com or on their new App for Android and Apple! SchoolCafe can now be used to apply for free or reduced priced meals as well as to view student purchases, set up low balance alerts and to set up auto replenish on the account, all at no cost.  However, when using a credit card to apply money to the account, there is a $20 minimum payment and a small convenience fee. Please note, parents can avoid the convenience fee by sending in cash, a check or money order with their student (payable to NPSNS). If you would like to set up restrictions on your student’s account or transfer money from one student to another, please call the SNS office at 215-853-1081. School Nutrition Services notifies parents when their student charges against their account.  

STUDENT ABSENCES  

All absences should be made by an email to pdattendance@npenn.org or by calling 215.853.1704 or fax to 215.368.1687. If your student arrives late, they must present an excuse for tardiness at the main office. If a phone call, email or fax is not received by the attendance secretary, the excuse will be unexcused. If you have already reported the absence to attendance by anyone of these means, you DO NOT have to notify the school in any other way. If your student attends North Montco Technical Career Center, you will also have to call them at 215-368-1177.

VACATION

If going on vacation during the school year, please make sure to send a note at least one week in advance to the Guidance Office. Students will be issued school work which must be turned in upon return from vacation.
