Beacon Alerts!!  Wednesday Aug 23, 2017 01:00 pm  By Jennifer Winder

The School Beacon Emergency Alert System is a service provided to us free by Nebraskaland National Bank.  We use this system to remind parents of Weather Related Postponements, Gate or Concessions Workers, and other important events.  Most recently used for a reminder of McDaid Picture Day.

The process is simple...You can log in to School Beacon by using this link.

     NEED TO UPDATE?? - Phone Numbers, Wireless Carriers, and Emails change frequently for some families.  Please take a minute to be sure that your information in School Beacon is accurate.  Some of you no longer have students at McDaid and would like to be part of the St. Patrick's messages now. 


    NEW?? - If you are registering a new account BE CERTAIN you have selected that you are 13 years or older!  
YES, that means students can receive messages as long as they are at least 13 years of age.  This is a free service provided to us by NebraskaLand National Bank and there are no limits to the amount of numbers you and your family enter. 

We realize that wireless carriers, phone numbers, emails can change frequently.  Please take time to log in to School Beacon to maintain you personal contact information for this important communication tool before our winter weather arrives!

If you need further assistance in registering for the Beacon Alerts please contact Jennifer Winder via email at j.winder@npcschools.org or through PAN.

*Please note that some fees may apply depending on each individuals text message plan through your carrier.*

Attention McDaid Families  Tuesday Aug 29, 2017 12:32 pm  By Jennifer Winder

The McDaid Family Directory is in the works.  A few of our families have indicated that they wish to not include their phone numbers in our published directory. 

Please let me know if this is a preference for your family by sending an email to j.winder@npcschools.org OR a Pass-A-Note to Jennifer Winder.  A brief note to Mrs. Winder indicating that you wish to not include your phone number in the printed version must be submitted to Mrs. Winder by 2:00 Friday, September 1st.

Thank You PTO and Parent Volunteers for once again putting together a very useful tool for our families.  We appreciate your support!  Go Big GREEN!
