Welcome Letter 2021

Dear Northside Preparatory Academy Families,

I would first like to say welcome to our new families joining NSPA this year and welcome back to our returning families! Officially Northside Preparatory Academy is the home of the RAMS!

It’s great to be celebrating the start of a new school year at Northside, through the challenges of the global pandemic we are glad to know that many of our students will be returning to the building this year for in- person learning.  Even though we are still faced with the spread of COVID 19 and other variants we will continue to provide our staff and students with the necessary safety and health protocols as outlined by our local State Health Department(s) and The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The staff and I look forward to welcoming the students for another year focused on academic progress and achievement. We also look forward to building a partnership with parents where we can work together to ensure the best academic outcomes for our students to excel at Northside. This will be achieved by keeping the lines of communication open, attending parent-teacher conferences, engaging in school workshops and trainings, volunteering (as safety guidelines permit), joining our Parent Leader Group (PLG) and promoting the school throughout and within our communities.

One of the goals, as there are many for our students, is to ensure they are safe and can thrive in a school environment focused on academic achievement and behavioral success. 

All of us at Northside Preparatory Academy are eager and excited to begin the 2021-22 school year! Please find with this letter, the 2021-22 School Year Calendar, Supply List, Uniform Dress Code, Student Behavior and Deportment Guidelines and other important forms of information.

Please mark your calendar for our “Meet the Teacher Night” on Monday, August 16th TBD (Time to be determined). During this meeting, you will be introduced to your student(s) teacher(s), learn about the curriculum and schedules, parent engagement opportunities and school wide plans to support academic and family success at Northside Preparatory Academy. 

The first day of school for students is Wednesday, August 18th.

The staff and I look forward to working with you as Partners in Education to support your child/children’s academic success at Northside Preparatory Academy!

Principal, Northside Preparatory Academy

Modality Letter – Second Semester


Dear Northside Preparatory Academy Families,

With the challenges that accompanied the education space the latter part of last school year, we were pleased to offer your family options as you entered the 20-21 school year. It is our intention to continue offering the three learning modalities (traditional, hybrid, and virtual) for the second half of the school year.

If you wish to adjust your modality selection to better fit your family needs, please call Tarrah Pickard (School Office Manager) at 513-541-2276 Monday – Friday between 8:00am-2:30pm by November 6th.

After this date, if we have not heard from you, we will assume your family plans to continue in the same modality your child currently utilizes. Requests thereafter will be considered on a first-come, first-served basis.

As always, please feel free to reach out in the event you have any questions or concerns regarding your child’s learning.

Healthy wishes,

Yolanda Clark

Welcome Letter – 8/31/20


Northside Preparatory Academy Families

Just a reminder that school starts Wednesday, September 2nd! We are excited to welcome our traditional and hybrid students to the building and look forward to seeing our online students via canvas!

Doors will open at 7:30am for breakfast.  Instruction will begin at 8:00am.  Student who arrive after 8:00am are considered tardy.  Students will not be able to enter the building prior to 7:30am.

For our online students, once you login at 8:00am, you will see a button for orientation. Your first assignment is to complete the orientation module. Each teacher will have their schedule posted with a time for the live welcome session for the first day of school.

To help prepare for virtual classes the AMP Support Team will be hosting Virtual Information Meetings every day starting August 31st – September 8th 9am-10am.  Families can drop in at their convenience to join the AMP and Tech Support teams for virtual Office hours.  Families can learn the key steps to utilize AMP such as how to log-in, access live sessions, contact teachers and more.  Families can also ask questions and participate in demos about navigating AMP.  Here is the link to the meeting:


If you haven’t picked up your student(s) Chromebook or login information, please call the school office at (513) 541-2276.

As a reminder, due to COVID-19, parents will not be permitted in the building.  We know this is inconvenient especially on the first day of school.  We want to ensure safety for our staff and students.  Staff will be available to help students get to their classes and bring in supplies.  Please make sure that all supplies are in a book bag or plastic bag for easy carrying.

Students in grades K-5 will report to the Main Building and have their temperature checked at the door.  Students will sanitize their hands, pick up their breakfast and report directly to class.  Students in grades 6th-8th will report to the ANNEX Building and follow the same protocol.

All students are to be in complete uniform each day of school.

We thank our families for entrusting your students to the Northside staff!  It is our goal to follow all required guidelines to ensure our staff and students remain safe and healthy.

We look forward to seeing students on Wednesday!


Ms. Clark
