As we have started the school year, I thought I would give you some additional information. We have a new phone system In the middle of August, the district started to install a new phone system within all of our school buildings. This upgrade will continue to improve the safety and security within each building and has put a phone in each classroom. During this month, each staff member will be setting up a voicemail and will have his/her own extension number. We have had a few glitches with the new system and are working closely with the company to resolve those problems. We will publish our extension numbers in a later newsletter and post them on our website soon.
Drop-off & Pick-up
Although some faculty and staff might be here earlier than 7:00 a.m., students should not be dropped off prior to 7:00. There is no supervision of students until 7:00 a.m. The end of the day can be busy and sometimes stressful. One of our first priorities is the safety of our students, so we would hope that parents would call in any dismissal changes prior to 1:00 p.m. This would allow us time to get the information up into the classrooms.

Did you know that your child could receive homework help, a healthy snack and participate in enrichment activities from 2:00-5:30 p.m. on Mondays through Thursdays right here at NHCS? The cost to participate in this safe and exciting program is:

In addition, my email is email@example.com.
Celebrate two young men
Education provides knowledge. Today, we had two of our students provide information and share their experience of having Tourette Syndrome with their classmates. We are fortunate that these young men understand the importance of communication, knowledge and willingness to share. Their main message was “I have Tourette’s but Tourette’s doesn’t have me!” As a school community, we support these two young men and welcome them into our school community.
Have a great weekend!
