Welcome to NHS 2020-2021
Hello all NHS Students/Families! First, I would like to thank you for your patience as the events of last spring have made for a slow start this fall. Since the beginning of the school year we have held officer elections (new officers listed below) and reviewed the NHS service requirements. The officers have decided that due to the restrictions caused by COVID-19, we will be reducing both the Valhalla and individual hours required by half (5 Valhalla and 10 individual). All forms are accessible digitally through this website. We are still working on ideas for service hours and will post them as they become available.
New Schoology page housing volunteer opportunities!
We have created a new Schoology course that will house open NHS volunteer opportunities. The access code for this class is: N9TR-GZW2-86QMG
Please remember that while we are eager to provide opportunities to serve our community, especially in this time of COVID, it is not the responsibility of the NHS officers to develop these opportunities.
NHS 2020-2021 Fee Update
Recognizing that COVID has had a financial impact on many families, the district is seeking to ensure that clubs are only charging actual costs for the year. For this reason, the fee for NHS will not be assessed until early March. At that time our bookkeeper will input the NHS fee on the student's account for all students who have turned in their application, have met the grade requirement, and submitted the first half volunteer hours. We will post a notice when this happens and families will then be able to pay for NHS online. The deadline for paying the NHS fee will be March 26th, the same day the second half of service hours are due. If the fee is not paid on March 26th, it will be assumed that the student is not doing NHS and it will be removed from their account. No late payments will be accepted.
