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.

Coaches Needed

NVE is in need of an archery coach and a robotics coach for this year. Practice times and competitions are very flexible to meet your schedule, and resources are already provided. If you are interested in volunteering for these clubs, please email Principal Nicholas Hill.

Reporting Absences

In an effort to make communication with the school easier, you can now email or text the school to report your student absent for the day. If you prefer, you can still call the school. We do ask that all reporting of absences go through the main office or to the following methods. We cannot accept Dojo messages that you send to teachers any longer.

  • Email
  • Number to Text: (812) 379-8841

Please note that you should send all other general communication through the normal channels. This email and phone number is only for reporting absences and daily change in dismissal routines.
