Our success will result in mature, independent, confident learners, who have the tools necessary for success in their further education as well as in their roles as productive members of their community.

Principal's Message

April 1, 2020

Dear Hale Families,

I wanted to give you an update on grades and 8th grade placement for NRHS. 

Trimester Grades:

  • Trimester two grades and comments will be available for parents to view in PowerSchool by 4/8/20

  • Progress reports for students on IEPs will be emailed to parents/guardians by 4/8/20

  • During this extended closure, teachers will continue to provide feedback, suggestions, and areas of improvement on student work but the work will not be awarded a letter grade

  • Students will not be awarded a letter grade for the third trimester

NRHS Placement:

  • 8th grade parents can view high school course recommendations by 4/8/20

  • Recommendations are based on a student’s performance during trimester one and two

  • Many of the 8th graders will find that they have been recommended for more than one level (college prep, honors, etc) in each course. This gives students, parents, and guardians a voice and some choice in this process

  • If you would like to discuss a recommendation, start with an email to that specific teacher

  • Given our current situation, the 8th grade team will be as flexible as possible as it pertains to course recommendations  

Moving forward, you can anticipate receiving more information about the NRSD Remote Learning Plan from both the Superintendent and me. I anticipate that you will have this information within the next few days. As always, please reach out to me with any questions that you may have.

Yours in partnership,

Kyle Grady
Principal
