REMINDER:  Our cell phone policy is off and out of sight.  If you need to contact your student, please call the office and we will get a message to them.  Texting them directly during school hours may result in disciplinary measures.

Please call the office by 9:00 if your child will be late due to an appointment or is sick.  We do track illnesses.

Pre-Excused absence:  If your family is planning a trip or scheduled day off and your child will miss, please contact the office three days prior to absence.  Once date(s) have been communicated the office will get your student a pre-excused absence slip.  This will allow staff time to gather the work for your student.  It is the student’s responsibility to obtain work before they leave.

NHS offers homework help every Tuesday & Thursday morning in Mrs. Bishoff’s room from 7:45 – 8:10. You can also go to the junior high workroom each morning at 8:00 to get extra help.


The library is now closed for the year.  Any books still out can be turned in to Mrs. Derringer.

Lunch Menu

Hot Lunch – Pizza or Ham Sub

Ala Carte – Crispito or Salad

Students as you are going through the lunch line please be aware that you may choose either a fruit or vegetable or both with your meal. The State requires that each student have a minimum amount of fruits or vegetables or a combination of both. If you choose to only take one, you will get the full required serving, if you choose both, you will get a 1/2 serving of each, to total the amount required. 


The office sells bottles of water for $1.00 and fruit snacks (big bag) for $1.00.  We also have granola bars and crackers for $.50.

As a reminder only WATER is allowed to be in lockers or carried to class.  All sugar drinks must be discarded before leaving the cafeteria. (Gatorade, soda, kick starts etc.)

Please remind your student to never walk down the train tracks on their paths home.  This is a very dangerous thing to do, and the local police will stop any/all who attempt this method.

Send in your soda tabs.  We collect these all year long. 

Don’t forget to sign up for your Max card (County Market), “Red” card (Target).  Remember to save your box tops and Campbell Soup labels.  All companies give a percentage of purchases and labels back to the school.
