Message from Amy Winston about registration

February 26, 2017

March is registration time at NNHS! This year’s course registration process will mirror the process used last year. The first step in the process is to make sure that you (both students and families) can login to Skyward. As we begin the course registration process for next year, Skyward Family Access and Skyward Student Access will be integral for viewing recommended courses and selecting elective courses. 

If you haven’t ever logged into Skyward, now is the time to do so!
