NHS Switches to Fully Remote Instruction (January 11-20)

A Message From the Principal:

Effective Monday, January 11, he high school will be moving to FULLY remote instruction for 10 days.  Remote instruction will he held on Monday, January 11th and run through Wednesday, January 20th.  Students will return to in person instruction on Thursday, January 21st.


•  Students who attend BOCES for their CTE program are still able to attend.  The AM bus will be at the high school at 8:30am and the PM bus will be there at 11:45 as per our normal schedule.  BOCES CTE students who normally get picked up by a bus will still be picked up and those who currently have permission to drive may continue to do so.

•  Chromebook pick up for juniors will be moved to January 26-28th.

•  Bowling will continue as it occurs off school grounds.

•  Swimming, indoor track and all athletic conditioning is cancelled until January 21st. 


This shift is based on recent quarantine orders, some, mandatorily imposed by the Department of Health and some, precautionarily imposed by the district, for various NCSD faculty and staff members. Any affected students and staff have been contacted at this point. Please know that these recent quarantines prevent us from providing effective in-person instruction.


Thank you for your cooperation and understanding!  Stay warm, stay safe and be well.
