Health Room Reminder 

Cold and flu season is upon us!  We have had several cases of strep at school as well.  Please remember to keep children home when sick: Students with a fever (temperature greater than or equal to 100) or flu/strep-like illness should not return to school until they have been fever-free for 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medicines.  Students with symptoms of intestinal illness (diarrhea and vomiting) should be symptom free before returning to school.



Road Closure starting Nov. 27th

Starting yesterday, Nov. 27th, at 7:40 am, we closed the NBH service road from the dumpster area to the elementary school. This area of the service road will remain closed until 2:00 pm. We are closing this portion of the service road because the elementary students are going to begin using the grassy field for recess and PE. To access NBH Elementary School during the hours of 7:40 am - 2:00 pm simply enter and exit at Mill Bayou and Hwy. 390. This is a permanent road closure and is being done to ensure the safety of our students.


Parking/Drop Off and Pick Up Reminders
Parents, do not drop off or pick up your child in a road- this is not allowedYou must pick up your child or drop him/her off in the designated spot or park. This is a huge safety issue. Also, please drive with patience and focus. Phones should be put away and drive slow. Safety is our number one focus during this time so please help us out. Thank you.


Also, if you are parked by the curb to pick your child up, please stay in your car. We will bring your child to you! Again, Safety is our number one focus during this time!

Elementary Yearbooks

ELEMENTARY SCHOOL: Yearbooks are on sale right now for the cheapest price they'll be all year, $35.  You can buy them online at, or you can bring a check or cash to Ms. Lensink in room 112 (in the high school).  Our yearbooks sell out every year.  Don't miss out!

NBH MEN-tors program is designed for a dad, or father figure, to be able to come to the school and volunteer for the day. Dads will be given a schedule that will allow them to spend time in their child’s classroom and special areas, along with helping in the lunch room and monitoring hallways. MEN-tors will also be given a free t-shirt and their picture taken with their child to be put on the recognition board. This is a great opportunity to get 8 volunteer hours completed!

Happy Feet - Step Forward, Give Back, New or lightly used shoe collection!

Last year we participated in the Happy Feet, shoe collection drive sponsored by Crook and Vickie Stewart. We asked to participate again this year and the goal is to collect 1000 pairs of new or lightly used shoes for folks in our community! There is a collection at the front of the school. We will be collecting shoes of all sizes until Dec. 14th. If you have shoes the children have outgrown but not worn out, please send them in between now and Dec. 14th! Thank you!
