Final Transcript Requests

Senior MacBook Returns!
Seniors and any students leaving the district can turn in their NPS-assigned device at any of the following dates and times:
Monday May 24 - Friday May 28 in the NNHS technology office from 8am - 4pm
Tuesday May 31 - Friday June 3 in the NNHS technology office from 8am - 3pm
If none of these times work students should contact their site help desk to make arrangements to bring items in at another time.
If you are going to be needing the NPS assigned device after the drop off date please fill out this form: request to turn in NPS device after June 2nd. If this request is not for an accepted reason the device will still be disabled June 5th.
Any laptops not turned in by 3pm on June 2nd and not confirmed as part of the request to turn in NPS device after June 2nd may be disabled.
The current assigned macbooks are not available for purchase.
As you prepare to leave the district and return the NPS assigned device, there may be items in Drive and Gmail that need to be retained. Please plan on copying these items out of email and/or Drive, as student accounts are scheduled to be inactivated thirty (30) days after students leave the district. Google has an app designed for this at takeout.google.com. If you need assistance with this, please click here to request assistance from the NPS Help Desk or contact via Phone: (405) 366-0536.
If there is an NPS provided case on the assigned Macbook you will need to leave that case on the device. If there is a personally purchased case on the device please remove it before turning it in; if you don't want the case you may leave it on the device and TSC will remove it and reuse it for students who can’t buy themselves a case.

SAFETY IS EVERYONE'S PRIORITY
Having an incredible learning environment where each student finds success and support for his/her goals and dreams is not possible without a safe environment. Throughout this year, everyone will be involved in more frequent safety training and discussions.
The first change that we are making is that ALL STAFF and STUDENTS must have a STAFF or STUDENT ID easy visible above their waist. This is to assist with faster identification of who should be on our campus and who should not.
Parents, it can be difficult for teenagers to always remember their ID but this is as important , if not more important, as bringing their MacBook to school. We will be giving each student 2 IDs to begin the year. After that if a student arrives at school, he/she will be escorted to get another ID and $5.00 will be charged to his/her account. Students will not be allowed to travel in the building without an ID around their neck. We need for parents to help remind their children each day of their ID. Where can the ID be hung each day so that it's easy to grab and put around the child's neck? You can help make this a priority just like the MacBook.
Second, while our safety committee has always been important, we are going to increase the frequency of meetings so that we are continually evaluating the safety of our staff and students. We would like to have 2 parents and 2 students join this committee. If you are interested, please fill out the attached form: 22-23 Safety Committee Volunteer Form.
If you have any safety questions or concerns, please let me know.
Thank you for making Norman North High School a safer school!
