Welcome to the 2017-18 school year!
We extend a warm welcome to our new teaching staff joining NWABSD from regions throughout Alaska and across our great Nation, our returning staff, and students.
The school year opens with the Principal Inservice: July 31- August 4, new Teacher Inservice: August 7, all Staff Inservice: August 8-11, and the first day of school Wednesday, August 16.
If you are new to the District, you can access an enrollment packet on our website: http://www.nwarctic.org or from the school secretary the week before the start of school.
I look forward to meeting and working with you to support our students and staff as together we embrace and promote the District's mission: “TO PROVIDE A LEARNING ENVIRONMENT THAT INSPIRES AND CHALLENGES STUDENTS AND EMPLOYEES TO EXCEL.”
