Updated Mask Mandate
PHASE 4 Parent Update
Now that school has resumed, please read about the protocols that we have put in place to keep NCA safe and open.
COVID-19 Busing Policies
Due to the Covid-19 and the bus seating arrangements, students may not switch between the buses. As you know, safety is our number one priority. We have seating charts in place for contact tracing purposes in the unfortunate event that we would ever need to use them. If your student wants to go home with another student who rides a different bus, they will need to be picked up at the school. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter. Please contact Jill Kettlewell at 231-495-1115 with any questions.

Ms. France and Ms. Bowman had a great time with their students as they explored the Sleeping Bear Dunes and then ate pizza and went to Moomer's for ice cream! What a great day for our students!
The NCA Spring Concert theme was Kindness Brings Us Together. Students enjoyed performing outdoors and singing about one of our core values - Kindness.
NCA's recent Egg Hunt Eggstravaganza was a hit! Kids of all ages got to hunt for eggs, do arts and crafts and enjoy some walking tacos.
