Junior High/High School parents, you should have received an email from the school about getting signued for ZippSlip, an online system to submit electronic forms on a computer or mobile device. To sign up, you will need your child's student number in Infinite Campus. If you aren't on Infinite Campus or didn't receive the email, call the office at 712-469-2245 and talk to Jan or Dawn to get signed up or to give us your email address. Note - only one parent account can be made unless you call the school (then we must contact the company). Only one parent account is necessary. (Parents can still have separate login accounts on Infinite Campus.)

To get into ZippSlip, go here and click on "Not a User? Create Parent Account!" You'll need your child's student number and their date of birth. Once you login, you will see items on your dashboard, including electronic forms. 

If your child participates in athletics, the Emergency Information, 2017-18 Insurance, and Concussion forms must be filled out by August 2nd.

FROM OUR SUPERINTENDENT
It's a new school year, and with it many exciting changes in the district, including a new face at the 
Central Office. One thing that hasn't changed is that we seek to make this website the go-to place to get news and information. You may want to print out the 2017-2018 academic calendar (students' first day is August 23rd) and your kids will want you to bookmark the lunch calendar to know what good things the kitchen staff is serving. Here is the calendar of upcoming events. At the JH/HS building, Coach Anliker has this year's schedule updated on the MNW football pageFind this year's secondary band performance calendar on page 3 of the MNW Band Handbook to print out, and check out a list of Mr. Olson's favorite authors on his pageWe haven't forgotten the elementary: Mr. Anderson has uploaded photos of some elementary students' art projects. Learn about 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten on the preschool page, and watch a promotional video starring a fifth grader. This is going to be a great school year!
