Dear Parents/Guardians:

I hope you are having a wonderful summer and are looking forward to a great school year. On behalf of the staff at North Quincy High School, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the 2023-2024 school year. I am excited to have the opportunity to be working with each student and family to ensure your child’s academic success. To do so, communication between school and home is essential. To keep parents/guardians informed, North Quincy High School utilizes several means of communication. Our website, located at http://nqhs.quincypublicschools.com, houses a great deal of information about our school as well as, information about after-school activities, sports and sports schedules, band/chorus information, and many other announcements to keep parents/guardians informed about their child’s education. Another means of keeping parents informed is through email. In order to receive emails, an updated copy of your email address will need to be in Aspen. To keep up to date on your child’s progress, please check Aspen on a regular basis. Academic information can be found under the ACADEMICS tab. If you need assistance in navigating this portion of Aspen or need your password reset, please contact Informational Technology at 617-984-8770. If you need your child’s Aspen password reset, please call the Main Office or Student Support Services.

  • The first day of school for freshmen this year is Wednesday, September 6th. School begins at 7:45 a.m. All freshmen will report to the auditorium at 7:45 on the 6th and teachers will escort students to their homeroom from the auditorium.

  • The first day of school for students in grades 10-12 is Thursday, September 7th.

When dropping students off or picking them up from school, please do not do so on East Squantum Street unless in the designated “live” drop off section. Also, please note that only staff and emergency vehicles are allowed to enter the main parking lot between and 7:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. Regardless of the drop-off and pick-up location, please use caution when doing so. Please help us to keep all of our students safe by following the aforementioned procedures. Similar to last year, school breakfast and lunch will be free to all students. The cafeteria opens each morning at 7:00 a.m. for students wishing to eat breakfast prior to the start of school. If you have questions about your child’s/children’s schedule or would like to make changes, please contact Student Support Services.

Chromebooks for 9th graders will be distributed during the first week of school. Students in grades 10-12 should still have their assigned Chromebook from last year. Students who are new to NQHS will receive a Chromebook during the week of September 7th.

We have set up a Google Classroom for incoming Freshmen, within which, we will post information for our 9th graders. Please use the link below to join. https://classroom.google.com/c/NjE3NjQzMzc2MzM3

Our staff is thrilled to welcome our students back to NQHS and hope our students are equally excited. We look forward to another great year full of triumphs and successes. As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to call me at 617-984- 8745. Enjoy the rest of your summer!
