Drop-off and parking info to start the year at NVMS

While Nooksack Valley Middle School comes completely new for the start of school on Aug. 30, ongoing construction of the gym, locker rooms and parking lots will require patience for those traveling to and from the site.

The front of the building will not be accessible to start the year, as it will be once construction wraps up, so staff asks all parents to drop-off students behind the bus garage.

“Please be patient as we learn new systems for dropping off students,” says Joel VanderYacht, principal. “The directions will be temporary until the parking lot is completed mid-October.”

The plan for the start of the year includes:

  • Drive west on Jackson
  • Turn south on West Third St.
  • Continue on West Third St. down the gravel driveway
  • Turn left on the Access Road
  • Exit onto West Second St.

If parents are picking up their child or need to visit the office, there will be temporary parking behind the bus garage until the parking lots get paved. “We ask that you do not block the flow of traffic if you need to leave your vehicle and come into the building,” VanderYacht adds.
