School is not the same without our Falcons! Our teachers have been busy putting together lessons for students. Hopefully, your family received a phone call or email from one of our staff members checking on you and asking if you have any needs at this time. If you have needs or concerns, please reach out to Mr. Sutton via email or call the school.

We will be sending out updated newsletters frequently with new information. As you may have heard, we will not be returning until May 15th.

Students need to be checking school email everyday. The email address is firstname.lastname@student.nhcs.net and the password should be the student's lunch number.

8th grade students and parents - If you did not receive a HS Registration packet last week, you can come by the school to pick one up between 11 -1. Students must have a parent sign the registration form. At this time, we are asking that you only send these in digitally. You can scan or take a picture of both sides of the sheet and email it to your counselor. Your paper copy will be turned in at a later date.

Educational Rescoures

Students can check out 2 e-books using their NHCS lunch number from the NHCPL.

Audible is offering students free access to ebooks for as long as schools are closed. Students will be able to instantly stream stories in 6 languages. They can stream the collection to phone, tablet, laptop, or desktop.

The Walking Classroom - Check out these podcasts. You can "walk, listen, and learn."

Many of our students watch CNN 10 as part of the daily routine in Social Studies class. This provides a short broadcast that is geared toward students. You can access it at home on YouTube.
