The Wolf Weekly
NRHS Principal's Newsletter
Newsletter Week of October 17, 2021
What a busy week we had last week! Spirit week was fun and brought some great energy into the building. We also had SAT's, PSAT's, A college fair, our homecoming football game and a very well attended homecoming dance last night. It is just amazing and life giving to see our students back and doing "normal" school events.
This week, just a reminder that we have a late start on Monday for professional development work at the high school that is focused on our new building project and a district wide early release on Friday also for professional development.
On Friday 10/22 we have our Senior Sunrise event before school.
Picture day is coming up on 10/26.
Path to Mask Optional at NRHS:
Finally, we are well over 80% vaccinated at NRHS and over 50% opt in to pooled testing. Once we get to 70% or above opt in to Consent to Test, we may be able to consider removing masks indoors. Please consider filling out the opt in form for testing. Contact the school nurse for more information.
Have a wonderful week Nashoba!
Dr. Kathleen Boynton, principal
A Message from our Health Office
Hello Nashoba students, families, and staff,
Happy beautiful October! Sadly, COVID is still with us, and we are seeing cold-like symptoms in many of those who test positive throughout our communities. Please be aware that cold or allergy symptoms may need follow up testing. If you need to report someone being home from school sick, please be specific as to what symptoms they are experiencing, so you can be guided in the right direction. Testing is still recommended with certain symptoms, even with vaccinated individuals.
Please keep in mind that symptoms of COVID include headache, sore throat, cough, shortness of breath/ difficulty breathing, fatigue, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, body aches/ muscle aches, fever/ chills, runny nose/ congestion, and new loss of taste or smell. If you have been experiencing any of these symptoms, please let us know so we can guide you in the right direction.
If you would like to opt-in to our Routine COVID Safety Testing Program for staff and students' routine weekly testing, please follow the directions below.

AP Information for Students
Students taking AP courses are required to take the corresponding AP tests each May.
Registration for AP tests begins today and concludes on October 22nd. We know this is early, but the College Board requires that we order AP tests in the Fall. It is suggested that parents and students register for these tests together - it should take about 15 minutes. Any registrations received after Oct 22nd will incur late fees.
- Students complete the AP contract.
- Students register at https://user.totalregistration.net/AP/220162. Follow the instructions carefully.
- Students register at College Board's MyAP system with the Join Codes you received at the end of the Total Registration process.
Please reach out to Mr. Glover, the test coordinator, or Mrs. Hilliger, the Guidance Secretary for questions.
College Visits to NRHS
College Rep Visits are well underway at NRHS. Over 70 colleges and universities will be visiting Nashoba to visit with our Seniors. This is an opportunity to hear about schools that students may be interested in. Remember....the Rep may actually be the Admissions Counselor who reads Nashoba's applications.
Students should notify their teachers before attending and should NOT miss any exams/quizzes or presentations. Students will be excused from any classes they miss but are responsible for any work assignments.
