Red Devil Families, here is important information concerning upcoming events for N-CHS as we close out this semester.
First off, makeup school pictures for our Group B students will be taken on Thursday, December 10th. Please be sure to come dressed to impress on that day!
Next, in order to prepare both you and your family, End of Course exams will take place during the week of December 14th through December 17th. If your student is enrolled in Math 1, Math 3, Biology or English 2, as well as any Career and Technical Education courses, they will be required to attend and participate during this week. This includes all hybrid and remote students. The schedule will be as follows: Monday - all 1st period exams, Tuesday - all 2nd period exams, Wednesday - all 3rd period exams, and Thursday - all 4th period exams. Students will be socially distanced and will be required to wear a mask during the testing session.

Friday, December 18th will be used as a makeup day. More information will be coming from the school and your student's teachers. Please continue to check back here for any new information that may arise.
We look forward to seeing our students one last week before exams. Students, please work hard and finish the semester strong. We hope you have a great evening, and GO RED DEVILS!
