Important Information:

Visitor Procedures:
For the safety of our children, all doors of the school are locked during the school day. We ask ALL visitors request access to the school by pressing the gray button outside the main doors. Once granted entry to the building, please do not hold the door open for others to enter. Upon entering the reception area, visitors MUST sign in and pick up a visitor’s badge. The badge MUST be worn at all times during school hours. Please sign out at the reception area and return your visitor’s badge when you are departing. At times, photo identification may be requested.

Attendance Information:
This is just a reminder that if your child is late to school due to a doctor, dental, or other medical appointment, a note is required from the doctor or medical professional verifying the appointment.

Please review the "Attendance Information" in the 2013-2014 Student/Parent Handbook. As with most children, it is not unusual to miss days due to illness. However, when this occurs, it is necessary to have a BLUE excuse card signed by the parent or guardian stating the reason the student was absent. A BLUE card is also required for educational trips, preceded by the completion of the Educational Trip request form. This is part of the Pennsylvania School Law. If five days pass and a BLUE card is not returned, the absence becomes unexcused.

After 10 absences, a student may receive a note from NHE requiring a doctor's note for any future absence. If you child is experiencing a special medical problem, please contact the school nurse and submit a letter from your child's doctor pertaining to the medical condition.

If there are any concerns regarding attendance, please contact the school. 

Please Help Us In Keeping Good Bus Behavior
Please remind your children they should always be sitting in their assigned bus seats, facing forward, and keeping hands, feet, and objects to themselves. For everyone's safety, students should speak in low voices while on the bus.


PTO Information

Have you considered joining the NHE Parent/Teacher Organization (PTO)?  NHE’s PTO is very active and supports students and staff.  Each year, the NHE PTO provides educational opportunities and projects for the children of North Hills.  Please continue to support the PTO so outstanding activities can continue.  We ask that you sign up and contribute your time and effort to continue to make NHE a school of excellence.

 

Mr. Jeffrey L. Fox

 

Who Was Mr. Fox?
Mr. Fox began his career in the Central York School District in December of 1972.  He was a third grade teacher at Hayshire Elementary and then at North Hills.

In 1984, he became an Administrative Intern.  In 1985, he became Principal of North Hills Elementary.  He was also Principal of Roundtown for five years. Phi Delta Kappa named him Outstanding Principal of the Year during the 1990-1991 school year. 

He was not only a wonderful teacher and principal, but also a wonderful husband and father.  In February of 1996, after 23 years with the district, he lost his battle with cancer. His spirit of caring lives on in those whose lives he touched throughout the years.

History:
In 1992, Mr. Fox and Mr. Wisler planned the first track meet held at the high school.  Until this time, the track meet had been held at various buildings.  Every year, Mr. Fox looked forward to putting on his police hat and calling students to their events.  Together, Mr. Fox and Mr. Wisler created events to make sure everyone was able to actively participate in the track meet.  Mr. Fox loved seeing the students involved in the meet! 

In 1996, the track meet was renamed “The Jeffrey L. Fox Memorial Track Meet” as a tribute to the blood, sweat, and tears he had shed for the students in Central.  Mr. Fox was a phenomenal educator, colleague, father, and friend who touched the lives and hearts of everyone he came in contact with during his years at Central.
