Principal Note: Active Shooter Safety Drill @NSSED

On Tuesday, February 25th, the City of Highland Park Police Department will be conducting an active shooter safety drill at North Shore Academy and Arbor Academy from the hours of 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. While this is only a drill, there may be the presence of police personnel and equipment in the surrounding area.

As always, our goal is the safety and security of all our students and staff! Thank you for your continued cooperation. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
