Red Devil Families, we would like to share a few reminders and updates for the upcoming week. Tomorrow, September 19th, will be Open House for NCHS. Parents are welcomed to come meet and speak with your student's teachers from 3:30 - 6:00pm. If your student is unable to attend with you due to athletics or other engagements, please be sure to have them write down their schedule so you will be able to find each classroom. We look forward to seeing you there! Any student involved in Drivers Education presently, eye checks will also be held on Monday. Students will need to report to the NCHS Cafeteria from 3:00pm to 3:30pm. Parents, you do not need to enter with your student. Please follow our dismissal traffic pattern when entering the parking lot to wait for your student if needed. Parents and students, please remember that school begins each day at 7:40am. Student tardies are beginning to accumulate for 1st period, as well as throughout the school day. Students have 5 minutes between each class to move through the building and be in their next period class. Repeated tardies will result in disciplinary action, as well as parking privileges being revoked. Parents a reminder that free lunch has NOT been continued for this school year. Students will be required to pay for their lunch each day. Meals are not allowed to be charged in the cafeteria. If you should need to complete a Free and Reduced lunch form, please look on our district website or see our Child Nutrition workers in the lunch room. Parents please remember the drop off and pick up pattern for our Red Devils. Please do NOT turn left into or out of the car rider lot. Be sure to pull all the way up to the three orange cones to drop off and pick up your student. This allows our line to flow more smoothly and keeps the line from backing up. Do not drop off or pick up students on the side of road or down the line as this holds up the line from moving. Thank you for helping us keep our Red Devils safe. Parents and students, please remember our dress code. Students are NOT allowed to wear midriff or cut off shirts. This includes being worn under unbuttoned shirts or unzipped coats. Shorts must be an appropriate length, as well as hats and hoods are not allowed in classrooms. Nor is outside food and drink. Examples of each, as well as this information, can be found in the Student Handbook your student should have brought home. This is also posted on our school website. Disciplinary action will begin and student will be asked to call home for clothes. Looking ahead, parents and students there will be NO SCHOOL this Friday, September 23rd. NCHS teachers will be involved in Professional Development activities. We hope you have a great evening and look forward to seeing you tomorrow at our Open House. And as always, Go Red Devils!

Parents, please see the message from Catawba County Public Health: We hope your student is off to a healthy start of the 2022-23 school year. We encourage you to help keep our schools a healthy place for students to learn. There are a few key ways we can do this together: Students who are sick should stay home, no matter what illness they have. Do not send your child to school if he or she is sick, has a fever, nausea/vomiting or other symptoms of illness. At a minimum, all students who are sick should remain home until they have been fever free for 24 hours without use of medications such as Acetaminophen (Tylenol) or Ibuprofen (Motrin). Please consult with your child’s School Nurse for specific guidance. If your student has symptoms of COVID-19, please have them tested, either through your child’s medical provider, at another test site, or with an at-home test. If your student tests positive for COVID-19, please keep them home and notify your child’s teacher or School Nurse of their positive test. We are at a much different place in the pandemic today than we were just a few months ago, with convenient access to free at-home tests, vaccines available for children, teens and adults, and masks, which are all part of a layered approach to COVID-19 safety. If you have questions about what actions you should take to protect your child, contact your child’s healthcare provider or School Nurse. We are looking forward to this school year and working with you to ensure our school is a safe, healthy place for all students.

Labor Day
Familias de Red Devil, gracias por los excelentes primeros tres días de clases. Nos gustaría compartir algunos recordatorios y actualizaciones para el resto de la semana. Padres y estudiantes, recuerden nuestro código de vestimenta. A los estudiantes no se les permite usar camisas cortadas o cortadas en el abdomen y los pantalones cortos deben tener una longitud adecuada. No se permiten sombreros ni capuchas en las aulas, así como tampoco comida y bebida en el exterior. Se pueden encontrar ejemplos de cada uno, así como esta información, en el Manual del estudiante que su estudiante debería haber llevado a casa. Esto también se publica en el sitio web de nuestra escuela. Padres, un recordatorio de que NO se ha continuado con el almuerzo gratis este año escolar. Se requerirá que los estudiantes paguen por su almuerzo cada día. No se permite cargar comidas en la cafetería. Si necesita completar un formulario de almuerzo gratis o reducido, consulte el sitio web de nuestro distrito o consulte a nuestros trabajadores de nutrición infantil en el comedor. Padres, por favor recuerden el patrón de dejar y recoger a nuestros Red Devils. NO gire a la izquierda para entrar o salir del estacionamiento para pasajeros. Asegúrese de llegar hasta los tres conos naranjas para dejar y recoger a su estudiante. Esto permite que nuestra línea fluya más suavemente y evita que la línea retroceda. No deje ni recoja a los estudiantes al costado de la carretera o al final de la línea, ya que esto evita que la línea se mueva. Gracias por ayudarnos a mantener seguros a nuestros Diablos Rojos. Continuaremos reuniéndonos en Homeroom por el resto de la semana. Cualquier estudiante que NO haya recibido su tecnología deberá pagar la tarifa asociada para poder recibir la tecnología para este año escolar. Por favor, ocúpese de esto lo antes posible para que nuestros Red Devils puedan comenzar a trabajar para sus clases. De cara al futuro, recuerde que NO HABRÁ CLASES el lunes 5 de septiembre mientras celebramos el feriado del Día del Trabajo. Esperamos terminar esta primera semana de clases. Esperamos que tengan una gran noche y Go Red Devils.

Good evening Red Devil families and welcome back to the 2022-23 school year! We are looking forward to seeing all of our Red Devils tomorrow as we begin another year. We have some important information pertaining to school opening to share with you. School begins tomorrow, August 29th at 7:40am for all students. Doors will open at 7:00am. Parents if you will be dropping students off, please follow the posted procedures found in the email, school Facebook and school webpage. NO LEFT TURNS are allowed into the drop off lot or back onto street. Please do not drop students off or pick up students on the side of the road or in adjacent lots as well. As you enter the lot, there will be three orange cones at the front door. Please pull up to the furthest free cone to drop off or pick up your student. We suggest you be sure to leave early enough to have your student dropped off before 7:30am. This will help our flow of traffic and allow all students to make it into the building before our 7:40am tardy bell. Help us keep all of our students safe by following these very important procedures! Student needing busing to school, please be prepared to be at your stop from last year AT LEAST 10 minutes earlier tomorrow. Please be near road so the bus driver can see you waiting. For any questions on busing, please contact Mr. Todd Davis at todd.davis@n-ccs.org or have your student see him during their lunch period. Students will report to their homeroom tomorrow and for the rest of the week. If your student did not pick up their schedule this past week, please see the attached homeroom list in the email. Students will also be able to pick up their schedule and technology in homeroom, as long as all fees have been paid. Students please remember our NCHS dress code as we begin the school year. NO crop tops or cut out shirts are allowed, as well as no hats or hoods in the classroom. Also, make sure shorts are appropriate length. Students will be asked to call home and/or change if clothes do not meet code. All school rules will be discussed with students again in homeroom. Each student will be given a paper copy of our Student Handbook. Parents, please ask your student to look over this with you to familiarize yourself with the school rules. The handbook has also been posted on our school webpage. We are excited to begin another year and look forward to seeing all of our Red Devils tomorrow. We hope you have a great evening and GO RED DEVILS!
