Attention Class of 2022 Parents!

Dear Parents of Eighth Graders (Class of 2022):

As you prepare for your eighth-grade student’s transition to high school, please look for your student to bring home information during the early weeks of January about course enrollment for 2018-19. This information will contain a letter from District 204, and a course selection tip sheet that includes instructions for online course selection through Home Access Center.

For more information, please visit the NVHS Guidance website here: https://nvhsguidance.weebly.com/

We’d also like to remind you of our informational evening entitled Neuqua Valley’s High School 101. This presentation will focus on what you need to know about the upcoming transition to high school and course enrollment. We offer two opportunities to attend:


Tuesday, January 9 or Thursday, January 11 NV Main Auditorium 7:00pm

Eighth-grade parents and students should also plan to attend the Eighth Grade Open House Program at Neuqua Valley High School. This evening provides opportunities to talk with faculty from each department as you finalize course selections for your student’s freshman year. Counselors will be available at the Open House to assist with online course selection questions and concerns.
