Our teachers have been working hard on creating online learning environments. Students need to check their school email everyday. The email address is firstname.lastname@student.nhcs.net and the password should be the student's lunch number.

Students needing to access canvas can log into NCEdCloud using their student ID/lunch number.

8th grade students and parents - Students must have a parent sign the registration form and return it to school. At this time, we are asking that you only send these in digitally. You can scan or take a picture of both sides of the sheet and email it to your counselor. Your paper copy will be turned in at a later date.

Educational Rescoures

Students can check out 2 e-books using their NHCS lunch number from the NHCPL.

Audible is offering students free access to ebooks for as long as schools are closed. Students will be able to instantly stream stories in 6 languages. They can stream the collection to phone, tablet, laptop, or desktop.

The Walking Classroom - Check out these podcasts. You can "walk, listen, and learn."

Many of our students watch CNN 10 as part of the daily routine in Social Studies class. This provides a short broadcast that is geared toward students. You can access it at home on YouTube.
