NBHS Traffic Flow Map for August-September (Aug. 14, 2023)
The traffic flow for the first part of the school year has been adjusted due to construction. Once the front parking lot is complete, the routes will be updated.

Memorial plaques have been relocated, trees removed due to construction (July 27, 2023)

Due to the renovation of NBHS, a tree planted in 1969 in memory of a beloved student, Gary Simon, was removed. The dedication plaque for this tree along with all of the other precious memorials on campus were inventories earlier this year. The campus administration made contact with the families to let them know about the relocation of the plaques. All of those plaques or stones have been temporarily relocated along the west side of the library. It is our hope to give them a new home under one of the heritage oaks near the library once construction is completed. We have also identified several other items in the schools that are important keepsakes and will relocate them to the future building. This includes the class panoramic pictures, the artwork in the cases outside the gym and other student portraits that hang throughout the school. We also have plans to move the small mosaic unicorn mural near the indoor planter area to the new school and install a replica of the glass mural of unicorns that now stands in the Commons Area. All of these are important pieces of the school’s history that we fully intend to preserve.
