NRHS Principal's Newsletter
Newsletter Week of September 26, 2022
I hope this message finds you doing well and that you enjoyed the weekend.
Today was our first late start day to allow for professional learning time for our staff. We have 6 of these days in total during the school year.
We had a very successful Back to School night last week with a very positive feel throughout the building for the evening.
For those members of our community celebrating Rosh Hashanah, I wish you a happy and healthy new year!
Have a great week!
Dr. Kathleen Boynton, principal
iDecide partnership for NRHS
In recent years, substance use in schools has increased due to the widespread availability of devices that make it easy to conceal substances from peers, parents, and school staff. Students who use substances at school or school sanctioned events are both violating school substance use policies and are at a heightened risk for negative health effects. Nashoba Regional High School, alongside nearly 100 schools across Massachusetts, has committed to launching an exciting new program called iDECIDE (Drug Education Curriculum: Intervention, Diversion, and Empowerment). This program was collaboratively developed by Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH), the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, and the Institute for Health and Recovery. iDECIDE aims to provide students experimenting with substances and/or who are discovered using substances at school with opportunities to strengthen their knowledge, skills, and motivation to make healthier decisions. The iDECIDE program will be available sometime in the 2022-2023 academic year upon staff training and roll out from MGH.
Students at the high school will take part in an anonymous survey as we begin this partnership. Please review the opt-out letter for parents from iDECIDE, and if you would like to opt-out of the survey and program, please do so through this opt-out link.
