Emergency Communication Procedures
With the recent severe weather in our forecast, the North family wanted to remind our parents of the District Emergency Communication procedures. Please note that during emergency situations, our primary focus is the safety of our students and campus personnel.
Note: All MISD schools are releasing walkers and bus riders 30 minutes late today.
Additionally, all after school activities are cancelled, with the exception of tonight's band concert. If band decides to cancel, that information will be posted on the "Big Blue Band's" website.

I635 U-Turn • Do not enter parking lot
We have been contacted by City of Mesquite officials to let us know that they will be stepping up enforcement near the front entrance to North Mesquite. That means they will begin writing more tickets to people who turn from the U-turn under I-635 into the Chevron or our parking lot. This is a huge safety issue and we don't want to see any of our students, parents or staff injured or cited for crossing the solid lines at this busy interchange.
