NVES News

Our students are making headlines, and we want to share all the great news with you. We will keep this page updated with important announcements, news stories, and student shout outs. Please check in often and help us celebrate our students’ many achievements.

FREE Breakfast and Lunch

JCSC has the opportunity to offer free breakfast and free lunch to all students again this year. Please take advantage of this exciting and nutritional service! The only thing that would cost money is if your student gets an extra milk for $0.50 each.

Zoey Stroup Girl Scout Project Order Form

An order form for the Zoey Stroup Girl Scout Project was recently sent home with your student.

If you have any questions about the project or the items on the form, you can contact Melinda Stroup.

NV Parks and Recreation Sign-Ups

NV Parks and Recreation is now taking sign-ups for soccer, softball, and baseball. Register online now! If you have any questions, call (812) 346-9371.

Car Pick Up Safety

As you wait in line to drop off or pick up students at NVE, please make sure that you are staying on the correct side of the road. Even though it may be tempting to jump the line by driving on the opposite side of the road to get into our parking lot, this creates a very dangerous situation for oncoming traffic on such a narrow road. Please model patience, grace, and safety for our students as you drop off and pick up your student. We appreciate your help in making NVE a safer place!

January 5, 2022 - Updated COVID-19 Guidance

Over our winter vacation, the CDC and Indiana Department of Health released updated guidance for schools. These changes will go into effect immediately. Continuing with our mask requirement allows us to keep our students in school learning with our teachers face to face. If you have questions regarding this new guidance, please contact your child’s school nurse or principal. For more information, please see the letter below.

Jennings County Wrestling

We invite sixth graders to be a member of the Jennings County Middle School wresting team. Informational letters from Coach Baldwin are in the NVE main office. Practice starts December 14. We require sports physicals, and online final forms must be done before being allowed to participate.

Winter Boots

If your child is in need of winter boots and wears a girls (youth) size 1-3 or 8-1, or boys (youth) size 11-13, please contact Mary Driver or Kelli Gambrel, while supplies last.
