    • FINAL EXAM ATTENDANCE POLICY:  All students are expected to attend the full day of final exams. (8:15 - 1:15)  Only absences due to illness will be excused unless the absence has been pre-approved. If a student is absent due to an appointment or needs to leave early for an appointment, the absence will be marked unexcused unless it is verified by a note from a doctor or clinic.
    • Attention students: North High's Air Force Junior ROTC (AFJROTC) has two new classes starting second trimester, period 2 and 5. If you are interested in joining the program this year, now is the time to see your counselor.
    • Do you love to sing and dance? Then you participate in the 10th annual NORTHERN LIGHTS SHOW CHOIR CLINIC Sponsored by the North High Show Choir.  For all students grades 1-12, Friday, December 6th & Saturday, December 7th at North High School.  Register Online https://m.signupgenius.com/#!/showSignUp/20f0a44a9ab2da0f85-2019/74077921.
    • An attendance reminder for parents: We are seeing an increase of parents arriving at school to pick up their students without prior notice or calling with short notice. We want to release students as efficiently as possible and we understand some appointments are made with short notice however; the general policy for excusing students early is to leave a message on the attendance line in the morning or to send a note to school with the student. The student should bring the note to the welcome desk in the morning and they receive a pass. If you come to school to pick up your student without prior notice or call with short notice, we will do our best to deliver a pass as quickly as possible but know this will require extra waiting time since we do not always have staff or student aids available to deliver passes.
    • Senior pictures for the yearbook are due Tuesday, November 26th. See attachment for pictures guidelines. Contact Mr. Schahn at rschahn@isd622.org with any questions.
