NJHS Application Deadline

The deadline to submit the NJHS application is Tuesday, January 26th. Please be mindful that while we value family engagement in your student’s academic excellence, the student is responsible for completing the application (with your assistance) and for requesting teacher recommendations. We want our students to learn the necessary leadership skills to be successful now and throughout life. Help them complete the process, but please, do not do it for them. Additionally, please be mindful of teachers’ extensive duties when requesting a recommendation. Teachers have the option to submit the recommendation via a designated Google Form. It does not have to be completed in the student’s presence at the moment of request. Applications can be returned to school in the front office or Room 118. Applications can also be returned via email to the Adviser (contact information following). If you have any questions or concerns about eligibility or the application process, please contact the NJHS Adviser, Mrs. Gilmer, at arjillian.gilmer@lrsd.org.

When in doubt, stay at home...

If your child is not feeling well, please do not send them to school. Call the attendance line and let us know of the situation, then have your student log on to their teams meeting.


If your student is sent home with any of the following symptoms, they will be required to stay out 48 hours symptom free without the use of medication:

fever 100.4 or higher

cough chills/ body aches

sore throat

vomiting

loss of taste/smell

headache

stomach pain / nausea

nasal congestion/drainage

Please notify your physician if symptoms worsen, you are concerned about Covid-19, OR if your child has been exposed to someone who has tested positive. If your child has a Covid test, tests positive, or have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive, please notify Nurse Kami at 447-8505 or kami.grisham@lrsd.org. This applies to in-person and virtual students.
