NPHS RETURN TO SCHOOL

July 30, 2021

Note From the Principal

Dear Trojan Families and Students,


After a long and challenging 2020-2021 school year, I hope that you have all found time to decompress and reconnect with friends and family as restrictions have relaxed. I hope everyone has stayed healthy and safe over the summer.


While there is no doubt the pandemic has been challenging, I have learned many things. One of the most important lessons I have learned is to actively practice gratitude. By taking stock of the things for which I am grateful, it makes the challenges seem less challenging. One of the things I am most grateful for is the opportunity to start this school year with all of our students walking through our front doors. We are looking forward to a year of improved community togetherness.


We will see you soon!


Best,

Mrs. Adams

Principal

Seniors who meet the above requirements are not required to be on campus during assigned study halls. Students applied for this by requesting senior privileges during their registration process. When schedules are released on August 18, if it appears on the senior's schedule, it means that the request has been approved.
