A review of this issue highlights special scholarship opportunities for students pursing careers in engineering, education, culinary arts and food science, and entrepreneurship. Many of these scholarships will recognize students who have demonstrated leadership, or school and community service, or have a record of perseverance in pursuit of academic goals. Seniors are encouraged to browse through this issue and take the initiative to complete scholarship applications for which they are eligible. Applications that are not posted online are available in the College and Career Center.

CSDNR STATEMENT ON PHONE THREATS AT NRHS
AND OVERALL SCHOOL SAFETY
To the New Rochelle Community:
During the past two weeks, information has been circulating about threatening telephone calls being received by New Rochelle High School. The receipt of two such calls, on November 20 and December 2, led to the High School being evacuated while the New Rochelle Police Department conducted sweeps of the building to assess whether there was any actual danger. On November 20, because of the time of day of the evacuation and the nature of the sweep by the police department, the remainder of the school day at the High School was canceled. On December 2, once the District was assured by the Police Department that it was safe for everyone to return, our educational program resumed. It also has been reported that another telephone threat was received on December 3, for which the decision was made not to evacuate the building. The community should be assured that the Police Department was fully consulted on December 3, just as it had been consulted on December 2 and November 20. The Police Department advised that the circumstances of the December 3 call did not warrant another evacuation of the building for the second consecutive day. Read more...
