Important Information &
August 16 - First Day of School
School will officially open and classes will begin at Northwest High School on Thursday, August 16, 2012. Registration will begin at the Main Entrance. The schedule is listed below. If students are unable to register at their appointed time, they must register at a later time on any registration day. It is very important that all students register during these times. Yearbook pictures will be taken during registration, therefore students should dress in school appropriate clothing. Students are not to wear spaghetti strap or tank top type shirts. Students not dressed appropriately will not be allowed to have their picture taken for the yearbook.
Lunch ID/Pin Number and Lunch Prices
A Pin number or lunch ID is required to purchase a meal.
Student Meal Prices:
Each student will be assigned a locker. We recommend students purchase a combination lock. This is a one time purchase of $6.00, allowing the student to use the same lock for his/her academic career at NHS. These locks are the property of the student and no money will be refunded. The student assigned to the locker is responsible for any damage to the locker as well as all contents of the locker. Lockers may be locked only with locks purchased from the school. Lockers should be locked at all times. Northwest High School will not be held responsible for lost or stolen items, nor investigate items stolen from unlocked lockers.
Note: The schedule given to the student at registration this year will reflect the student’s current grade standing based on the number of credits earned:
Seniors 17 Credits
In accordance with the state law, all students must be up to date on immunizations in order to attend classes. If you have received immunizations recently, please bring proof with you to registration for the nurse to update your school records. No student requiring immunizations will be given
a schedule at registration for the 2012-2013
School year. Health history updates, medications and allergies should be noted on student records at this time. Student accident insurance forms will also be available at registration and in each principal’s office.
Yearbooks will be on sale for $52.00 during registration.
The award winning all color NHS Liontrac includes coverage of the 2012/2013 school year and the spring supplement. You may order your yearbook during registration with check, cash, or money order. Make checks payable to Jostens. As always, prices will increase to $70.00 by the end of the year when a limited supply of books will be available. Be sure to order your book at registration to save some money and guarantee your 2012/2013 yearbook.
The code of conduct handbook will be given to each student at registration. It is important that students and parents read this information and become familiar with the policies and procedures of Northwest High School. All students will be asked to return a form signed by the parent and student indicating that a handbook was received.
