Dear NHS Community,
I hope you all enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving break with your families. Please remember that there is NO SCHOOL on FRIDAY, DECEMBER 3rd due to a Teacher Professional Day. Thank you.
NH Covid 19 Anitgen Test kits available for residents
Dr. Arakelian has asked that we share this resource with families. It is for ‘at-home’ test kits for Covid 19. Free rapid COVID tests (courtesy of the state of New Hampshire) are available via this link:
Message from PAL:
Friday, December 10th is the annual NHS Staff Holiday Cookie Appreciation Day, organized by PAL. We are asking families to send cookies or treats that morning with students.
You can sign up here: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f0c4da5ad2da4fc1-nhsstaff4
Like last year, we are also asking students to make a card to go along with the assembled cookie boxes - a thank you that could work for any staff member. Students will come home with a blank card this week and finished cards will be collected in a box in the front lobby before December 10th. Thank you so much for your support!
Pick Up Patrol Reminder
Please remember to update any changes to your child’s dismissal plans in Pick Up Patrol each day. We use this program to facilitate a safe dismissal and ensure that students get where they are supposed to be each day. Parents should also enter absences and reasons for absences each day. If we don’t see an absence entered in Pick Up Patrol or receive a phone call, our practice is to call to confirm the absence for safety reasons. If you email your child’s teacher, please be sure to also follow these office guidelines to avoid any confusion. Thank you so much!
Convenient MD SASS screening
The next date for SASS screening will be Dec. 2, 2021.
