Reminder to parents - if your child calls you to bring lunch or any other item to school, remind them to come to the office on their own between classes to see if the item has been dropped off. We will call students down between classes if possible, but we expect students to come on their own to check. We have outlined this in our NHMS Info Book if you need further reference. Thank you. 

Please note that we do not allow parents to order food to be delivered to their child at school. 
You can personally drop off food for your child, but we will not accept deliveries from local restaurants. The delivery drivers will be turned away. Thank you for your cooperation.

Please note, bus passes will be checked every day - morning and afternoon
Students must have a pass to ride the bus.
 

Students who have lost a pass can get a new pass from the Main Office for $1.00 and must come first thing in the morning. Passes cannot be replaced on demand at the end of the day. Please ensure your child has their pass in a safe place. We recommend placing the bus pass inside the clear sleeve of your child's binder, that way, they don't have to take it out.
