A word from the Principal pertaining to "Late Start Wednesdays"
Dear Parent/Guardian of NHS student,
Beginning October 30, 2013 we will conduct "Late Start Wednesdays' every week. This is different than our previous "Late Start Wednesdays" schedule, because buses will run approximately one hour later than normal and school will officially begin at 9:15 a.m. Breakfast will be served from 8:50 a.m. until 9:10 a.m. The only buses not affected by the new schedule are buses 82, 83, 85, and 86. These buses will run at their regular times.
If you are a parent/guardian who has no choice but to drop off your child at an earlier time, they are to report to the library where professional staff will be on hand to supervise. For these students, this time can be utilized to study and/or catch-up on homework, or to utilize our GO Center. We will open our GO Center (College/Career Readiness Lab) and allow students to work with our GO Center Coordinator to research colleges of interest, learn how to apply for college, research scholarship opportunities and grants available, and register for SAT/ACT exams, etc.
The purpose of "Late Start Wednesdays" is to improve instruction. During this time our teachers will be involved in specific and targeted professional development for the purpose of improving their classroom instruction. You may be asking, "Why can't teachers do this some other time...either before or after school?" The answer is that many of our teachers are also involved in sponsoring or coaching extracurricular and co-curricular groups that practice before or after school. In order to not hinder or cause practices to go later into the evening, we are hoping this schedule is good for both students and staff members.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the high school office at (936) 564-2466 or the email address below.
