Principal's Update

A newsletter from NHS Principal, Hezekiah Massey


This week we look forward to seeing seniors and other assigned groups who have materials that need to be returned to our campus. We will collect items (books, technology, uniforms, instrument, supplies, fees, etc.) this week, Monday - Thursday, from 9 a.m. to 12 p. m. and again from 1 p.m. to 4 p. m. for any senior, athlete, and fine arts student who have items they need to return. The designated drop-off areas include our bus loop and the back entrance of the band room (near Purple Regiment Trailer - fine arts only) at those times indicated above.

Seniors may also pay any fines they may have in the athletic office, located near the bus loop at the back of the school during the time you drop off items.

Senior should check with counselors and take care of all of their academic concerns this week, as we will finalize all senior grades with no exceptions on Thursday, May 21st.

All underclassmen (9 - 11) grades will be finalized on Tuesday, May 26th. All underclass students are encouraged to continue working hard to turn in assignments to ensure that your grades are as high as possible. Please contact your teachers and counselors if you need additional information or have any questions about the drop-off schedule.
