NHS Orientation Information

DCMO BOCES is excited for our students to arrive for opening day on Thursday, September 10. Students and parents are required to complete the BOCES CTE Health Screening Form. There will also be an App available that will track screening information. It will be especially important to have a working e-mail for parents.  Please fill out the E-mail Form For BOCES CTE Students to indicate the e-mail address that you would like us to use. The Letter for BOCES Students provided more details for screenings and e-mail as well as transportation information, pick-up times and protocols for both AM and PM BOCES students.  


NHS is excited to welcome all of our new and returning students back for the 2020-2021 school year!  September will bring with many changes and  we will implement new practices for navigating and learning in our virtual classrooms. One of our biggest changes will be the start and end times of our day at 9:15am and 3:00pm.  Students will need to sign in to each class for attendance.  A Welcome Packet will be sent home electronically and via mail to provide additional information and important forms that will need to be returned during Orientation the week of September 14.  Additional information can be viewed in Mrs. Giglio's "Welcome Back Letter" (9/3/20) and her "NHS Back to School Video". 

The Welcome Back Letter from the high school will provide links to two important documents: 

"NHS Expectations 2020"
(document includes information about class times, the orientation schedule and BOCES information)

"NCSD Technology Information-Student Instructional Devices-Guiding Principles and Procedures" 
(document includes information related to technology including the User Agreement on page 8 and the Protection Plan on page 9)

September 2020 - Back to School Plans for Students
