Message to Parents

August 25, 2020

Dear Parents and Families,

I hope this message finds you and your families safe and well. This year has been unprecedented. Across the nation, universities, colleges, school districts, and other entities have made critical and difficult decisions regarding their modes of operation that are in the best interests of their communities and the individuals they serve.  Such is the case here at NSU. We have worked together to implement measures and modes for the health and safety of the entire campus community.
