Culinary Academy Participates In Empty Bowls Project
The Culinary Academy participated in a community service project. We donated 100 bowls of soup to the Empty Bowls Project. We also served the soup at the event. Next week, we are participating in the Festival of Trees. Students will be preparing items and donating them to be sold. The money goes to Hospice in Onslow County. Our goal is to donate 1600 items to this great cause.
STUDENT IDENTIFICATION NAMETAGS
Students at NHS have been issued ID cards and lanyards. Students are now expected to wear these visibly every day.
These ID nametags have been issued so we may more easily identify students, and so that the lunch lines move more quickly. To purchase lunch, students will have their ID cards scanned.
This will also prevent students from using another student’s account to purchase lunch, improving our security.
This ID badge is required for entry into school functions, and for students to leave the classroom during the school day, so please ensure that they have them on before leaving home in the mornings.
Students that lose their nametag will be assessed a $5 replacement fee.
NEW TARDY POLICY
A new tardy policy is in effect at NHS. Students arriving tardy to class will receive one day of lunch detention for each class to which they arrive late. Students should arrive to school on time, and move quickly between classes.
Students arriving late to school will receive an unexcused tardy unless a parent comes in to check them in, or unless they bring a doctor’s note to the desk when checking in. Again, students with unexcused tardies will receive one day of lunch detention.
Driver’s education classes are now open for registration.
If you wish to sign-up for drivers education you must register online at www.ncdrivingschool.com/onslow
