Dear New NAHS Students and Parents/Guardians:
Welcome to our Northridge Academy HS Learning Community! We hope you are looking forward to an exciting and safe new school year! Our Faculty, Staff, Link Crew, and Student Leadership have made plans to make this a wonderful year for you. As of right now, the plan is to return full time and in- person.
We know that this past year was a very difficult one for all of us, but at NAHS, we will continue to emphasize learning at high levels as we provide your child with the academic and social-emotional support they will need in order to earn good grades, maintain excellent attendance and conduct as they prepare for college or a career. We have very high expectations for all our students and depend on your help to continue to build our positive school culture. Getting to school and classes on time is essential and this new school year we have changed the schedule to start at 8:30AM-3:37PM on regular days and at 2:07PM on Professional Development (PD) Mondays. Being on time and prepared to learn every day are the key elements to student success. The 2021-2022 school year begins on Monday August 16, 2021.
Parents are always welcome to visit our Family/Parent Center to get information and ask for assistance. Leave a message for our Family/Parent Center Director at (818) 700-2261 if you would like to be a volunteer. Any general questions, please do not hesitate to call the Main Office at (818) 700-2222

On Wednesday, Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms condemned the attacks on three Atlanta-area spas that left eight people dead, including six Asian women. She added, “Whether it is senseless violence that we've seen play out in our streets, or more targeted violence like we saw yesterday, a crime against any community is a crime against us all.” NAHS stands against violence to any group. Remember our learning conversation principle of “invite differences and move away from ‘either/or’. Embrace ‘and’.
Have a safe thoughtful Thursday
Ms. Castro, Principal at NAHS
