Northside Middle School would like to invite you to participate in the 3rd Annual Norsemen Connection Resource Fair at Back-to-School Night on September 9, 2014.


The Roanoke County School Board announced last Thursday that it will begin the process of hiring a new superintendent by seeking public input on qualifications for a new superintendent.  The School Board has created a survey related to superintendent criteria, which is available at and also on our home page at  Hard copies of the survey will also be available at the Roanoke County School Board administration office and at every school. 


In addition to the survey, the School Board will hold two public hearings for citizen input.  The public hearings will be on August 27 and September 11 as a part of our regularly scheduled School Board meetings.  The start time of both meetings is 7 PM. 


The hiring of a new superintendent is the biggest task facing the School Board and we want to make sure that the public has a voice in this process.  We hope parents, staff and residents will take time to fill out the survey and/or attend a public hearing.



The Code of Virginia requires each school system to prepare and post the proposed average per-pupil cost for public education for the coming year, estimates for the current year and actual data for the previous year.   Our per-pupil cost is available at this link or see the attached document.

Attention Parents: New this year is the ability for parent/guardians to access Blackboard, our online learning platform.  Each parent/guardian is issued an account that enables access to view student grades, announcements, and class assignments for each of their students. A letter was sent home through your child so please ask them for that letter which will explain your username and password.  If you have any problems, please contact your child's homeroom teacher so we can assist you.

Please reference this map map pdf  noting the changes in regard to the gates that will be open for our football games at Bogle Stadium.  As of September 4, 2013, only the two gates on the opposite ends of the home side will be open for entering the stadium.  The gates on the visitor’s side will not be open.  The problem arises because neither Cave Spring High School or Hidden Valley opens these visitor-side gates for their games.  The home side has 3 areas to park (see scanned map) which offers adequate parking for spectators. 


Keep up-to-date on the athletic programs at NMS and NHS.  Follow this link to the Booster Club website:
