Attention High School Parents:
There is also no school for students on September 22, October 13 and November 11.
Our Back to School Night open house is Thursday, September 11 from 6:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. Parents should bring their students’ schedules as they will have an opportunity to follow the schedule and meet their students’ teachers. The schedule for the evening is also attached to this email. Information about the Minsi Trails Council Explorers Program has also been attached. Interested students may use this information and complete the interest survey in school or at home. A representative will also be present at Open House for anyone with questions.
Students who are driving to school should register their vehicle and park in the North Campus or Mitchell Avenue parking lot. There are plenty of spaces available and they are on a first-come, first-serve basis each day. Applications for parking can be picked up and returned to the Main Office. Students who already applied for a parking tag should stop by the office and pick up their parking tag to display in their vehicle sometime within the first few days of school.
Junior and Senior Study Hall Privilege will NOT begin until September 4. Juniors and seniors who are eligible should plan to remain in school ALL DAY until September 4. Permission slips will be distributed in study hall during the first few days of school.
Eagle Block activities will not begin until September 23. Students will register for their Eagle Block activities in school within the first few weeks of school. Information will be provided to students within the first few weeks of school.
Eagle Block privilege for eligible seniors and juniors will also begin September 4. Permission slips will be distributed in homeroom during the first few days of school. From August 26 – September 22, students will return to homeroom for Eagle Block and use this time as a study hall, etc. There will also be several grade-level class meetings and other school- wide activities. However, eligible seniors and juniors may be permitted to
leave if they have permission slips and when it is not necessary for them to remain until 2:30 p.m.
Parents are reminded that they can still access student grades and schedules, etc., through the PowerSchool Parent Portal as in the past.
Information will be forthcoming from the District Office regarding a District-wide initiation of Schoology, which is a web-based management tool for students, teachers and parents to share course content, submit assignments, exchange messages and stay connected about school. All students and parents will have access and more information will be available on our website within the next few weeks.
Students who are attending dual enrollment courses at Northampton Community College (which begin on Monday, August 25 as well) should always attend those courses if they conflict with courses at NAHS. Students can always make up work here if they have schedule conflicts. Students will need to enter through the Main Office when they return from NCC.
Students may begin entering the school between 6:50 a.m. – 7:00 a.m. as the doors are unlocked. Staff members do monitor the morning entry doors until approximately 7:30 a.m.
All students / visitors must enter through the Main Office once the doors are locked at about 7:30 a.m. each day.
Please feel free to contact the Main Office (610) 759-1730 or email HSPrincipal@nazarethasd.org if you have any questions. We wish your students the best of luck for a great 2014-2015 school year!
