Viking community, 

As we enter the fall season, increased illness is to be expected even outside of impacts due to COVID-19, much like before the pandemic. However, out of an abundance of caution, our varsity football game will be canceled on Friday, Oct. 1 against Wilsonville High School due to increased illness. Activities are anticipated to resume the week of Oct. 4. 

Although we are disappointed to have to make this incredibly difficult decision, we know we must do what is best for the health and safety of our entire NSHS community. 

Remember, COVID-19 and other forms of illness impacts us all daily

It is critical that we follow all recommended health and safety protocols such as vaccination, wearing a face covering, hand-washing and maintaining physical distance both while in our school facilities, and out in the community.
