Short learn-at-home videos made by NNPS partners are airing on NNNPS-TV: science, math, and even cooking. Keep an eye out for them amongst our educational programs and school-division shows.

The "Sports Highlights" team takes a break in July, so the next new episode will air in August. A previous episode of "Sports Highlights" will air this month on NNPS-TV (Cox 47/Verizon Fios 17/Roku/Apple TV) on Mondays at 7 a.m., 2 p.m., and 7 p.m., and weekends at 9 a.m. Visit during the TV broadcast to watch it online. "Sports Highlights" can be seen on demand on the NNPS-TV Video site, too, or the NNPS-TV Roku or Apple TV channel, or on the NNPS-TV app.

The next School Board meeting will be held on Tuesday, August 17 at 6:30 p.m. Protections are in place in the School Board Auditorium to curtail the spread of COVID-19, so the public may join in person if they choose. The meeting will be broadcast live on NNPS-TV (Cox 47/Verizon 17). School Board meetings can also be seen on the live webstream of the channel during the live broadcast or the replays. Our NNPS-TV Roku and Apple TV channels also have a livestream you can watch during the TV broadcasts, or you can find the meetings on demand there, or on YouTube, afterward.
