5. How are we notified about snow days or unexpected school closures?

 Five sending districts transport students to North Montco. Each district handles snow days differently. Students are to follow their sending school schedule. North Montco places notices about school closures on their website and social media accounts, but does not call parents due to each sending school handling snow days differently.

6. How does my child obtain a parking pass?

There is a $75.00 fee this year for each student parking pass.  Students and parents are required to complete both sides of the student parking pass application and clearly print accurate information on the application.  Turn in the completed application with the $75.00 fee (cash or check) to NMTCC security department.  The application will be processed and the student will receive the current parking pass sticker, which security staff will affix to the vehicle assigned.  Receipts for parking pass fees will be issued upon request.
