Message from Principal Cullinane
This has been an eventful week at the high school. We were fortunate to have great weather for our senior sunrise yesterday where over 120 seniors showed up very early in the morning to sip hot drinks and have apple cider donuts on our turf field celebrating the sunrise and each other. We also were happy to see many juniors come on to campus for our first "Meet, Greet, and Connect" events, and had successful virtual Parent/Teacher conferences yesterday afternoon, last night, and today.
On October 2nd, we asked for Parent/Guardian and Student feedback to a survey gauging how remote learning is going. We were very pleased to see 500 responses come in to that survey and were so appreciative of how many parents/guardians and students responded. The results of that survey really were helpful at helping us make improvements to our remote learning program. We heard a lot about student workload and were able to have thoughtful professional development for our staff, led by some members of our summer's Task Force, centered around the feedback we received from the survey. This continues to be an ongoing discussion in our building as we consistently review our practices on an ongoing basis.
If you're interested in the results of the survey please feel free to review them below or through this link.

Greetings Nashoba Families and Students,
As numbers of cases of COVID-19 climb in surrounding communities and in our own district as well, we'd like to remind everyone of a few key things that we have control over that will help slow the spread of this virus. Please remember the importance of staying home if you have been tested and are awaiting results. This is vitally important. If you have been tested, you should remain at home until you receive your results.
If you have been asked to quarantine at home by the Board of Health, please do so. This means please do not go to the grocery store, coffee shop, gym, or work (or any other places outside of your home or yard, other than for medical appointments or emergencies). This is a great time to utilize online grocery delivery for necessary items, or call on a friend for assistance. If you are in a situation where you do not have anyone to help with food delivery, please let us know.
If someone in your family has been identified as a close contact to someone positive for COVID-19, that person will be asked to quarantine at home for 14 days from the date of last contact. This quarantine at home stays in effect even if your family member tests negative. The reason for this is because the virus can take up to 14 days to present in the body. Please abide by this, as difficult as it may be, so that we can prevent further spread in our community.
We can work together to keep our families, friends, and neighbors healthy. If you know someone who may be under quarantine who is a primary caregiver, offer a grocery store delivery run, or any other errands that may make their time at home easier. Check on elderly neighbors. This is a challenging time for everyone, but Nashoba is a strong, amazing community. Pay it forward. Spread kindness, not COVID.

Please reach out with any concerns. Wishing everyone good health.

Our goal is to keep our student-athletes, coaches, officials, and all families safe and healthy as we complete the fall season.
At this time, the winter sports season is up in the air as we are waiting for guidance from the state. I will open winter sports registration and share information with all families as soon as it becomes available.
The facilities (track and athletic fields) are closed to the public, while high school events (practices or competitions) are being held. Also, there are no pets allowed on campus per our NRSD policy.
