What Zone are you today? Zones of Regulation

This year at NES we are introducing the ZONES.  Zones of Regulation is a curriculum used to teach students how to regulate their emotions.  You may be hearing conversations or comments about the zones at home so we would like to take this opportunity to share with our readers some basic info about the Zones.

Self-regulation is something everyone continually works on, whether we are cognizant of it or not.  We all encounter trying circumstances that test our limits from time to time.  If we are able to recognize when we are becoming less regulated, we are able to do something about it to feel better and get ourselves to a better place.  This comes naturally for some, but for others it is a skill that needs to be taught and practiced. This is the goal of The Zones of Regulation (or Zones for short).

Morning Drop Off



Morning Drop Off

Please remember that if you choose to bring your child to school, he/she should be dropped off in front of the school. Please pull all the way down to the first available spot. Students may be dropped off as early as 7:30 and will enter through the front door and make their way to the cafeteria or gym to wait until school starts at 8:00.   Teachers will be at the drop-off location from 7:30 until 8:00 to assist students.  After 8:00, students should be escorted into the office by an adult and properly signed in.

Students should never be dropped off on Fifth Street and should not exit their cars until 7:30 as that is when the door is unlocked and staff will be available to supervise students.

Afternoon Car Lane Etiquette


Our afternoon car lane is running smoothly after ironing out the wrinkles from the first days of school.  Please remember to notify teachers/office of any changes for afternoon transportation as soon as possible and to always make your car tag visible to the car lane staff.  We do run our car lane through two four-way stops; please be careful in these areas and know that skipping line at these stops can get our car lane numbers out of order and possibly create a fender bender.  Also some of our neighbors do not like having their driveways blocked by our car lane.  Please be respectful of our neighbors personal driveways.  Our goal each afternoon is to get your student to you quickly and efficiently.  If you find that your are consistently unable to be here by the time car lane is finished (approx. 3:00 each day) you may want to consider enrolling in our after school program or bus transportation.  We cannot supervise students in our school’s office after 3:00.
