On The Day:

Check in with Erica at the parking area, next to the MAIN ENTRANCE GATE THIS YEAR, between 9:15-9:30am.

LATE ARRIVALS make us sad :-( We MUST enter as a group, at the same time, promptly at 10am, so, please don't be tardy. With a group of 200, our tardiness would throw off the entire schedule for all the field trips.

EARLY DEPARTURES allowed at your convenience. But you won't want to miss the fun. :-)

Directions:US 395N to Stead Exit

Parking: Designated Lot will be announced soon. We had special NNHS field trip parking last year, and expect the same thing this year.


IF YOU HAVE NOT RECEIVED PARKING INFORMATION VIA EMAIL at least 48 hours prior to the event, please email activities@nnhs.org for help. Check your spam folder.

Share the fun on Social Media
Follow NNHS on Twitter and Instagram (and in the Facebook Event) for updated information as the day progresses.

Photo policy: Please do not post photos/videos of other people's children (in which the child is recognizable or more than 50% of the child's face is visible) to social media without the permission of that child's parent. Never post and then tag the parent, without prior permission. This is a matter of courtesy, as well as a matter of safety, and possibly law, i.e. if the child is in foster care. Please be respectful of the privacy wishes of others in the group. Thank you.
