In order for our emergency response plans to be effective, we must depend on the cooperation and assistance of many people, such as local police, emergency and fire departments. We also depend upon the parents of our students to support our efforts. Your cooperation is vital to helping us protect the safety and welfare of all children and school employees. Therefore, we ask parents to observe the following procedures during a crisis situation:
- Check for communications from NHSD. In the event of an immediate emergency that requires parental assistance, a phone call will be sent from the district to notify parents of an immediate school emergency.
