Northmont's brand new student news website - SURGE -
has arrived and is LIVE!
This website publishes the work of the Northmont journalism program. They have been working furiously on the website for five weeks, investigating, reporting, interviewing, photographing, and writing.
- You will be able to read the daily announcements, which will be posted by 8:30am8:30 a.m. EVERY DAY
- There is a rotating carousel at the top of the home page, where top stories will rotate
- Our students have selected a myriad of topics where they will write regular weekly and monthly features (like D-I-Why Not?, Argyle and Archer's Haphazard Advice, the Ukrainian Korner, and What Would Jaylin Do?)
- We have some amazing local sponsors and their ads will rotate throughout the site (if you click on their ad, it takes you to their website!)
- We have a sports ticker with the latest sports scores
- The staff bio page is extremely "entertaining"
- We are able to add photo, after photo, after photo, after photo...
Please, please encourage your students to check it out. There will be new content EVERY DAY. It is mobile- and tablet-friendly, and captures what journalism is about as we move into 2015. Though this will not entirely replace print, we have laid the T-Bolt Tribune newsprint to rest and you can expect a full-color news magazine from us in May that will showcase the best of the website!

Parking Tags for 2014-15 School Year
Construction will continue to cause issues with Student Parking. The plan is going to work slightly different for this school year. Spaces will be given to Seniors on a first come first serve basis starting August 4th. Currently, the plan is to issue Staff Tags to 70 PSEO or Flash Card Seniors allowing them to park in the front Staff Lot. All other seniors will be issued an Orange Senior Parking Tag that will allow them to park in the Back Senior Parking Lot for the 2014-15 School year. No Seniors will be allowed to park in either the Front Staff Lot or Senior Back Lot without the proper vehicle tags.
Sophomores and Juniors will be allowed to purchase Tags, after they have paid school fees, at schedule pick up starting August 12th; which will allow them to park in the Lot Directly behind the Middle School. No Vehicles will be allowed to park in the stadium parking lots until further notice. Please obey the 10 mph speed limit and all traffic signs to safely enter and exit the East Stadium Drive. Parents use this for M.S. Drop off and Pick Up.
All Parking Tags Cost $28 per school year / $7 per Quarter and should be purchased prior to driving onto school grounds. Thank you for your cooperation.
Traffic Patterns for H.S. and M.S.
For the 2014-2015 School Year
Middle School Student Drop Off
Parents dropping off Middle
School students will enter on Stadium Drive and proceed south following a
slight curve to the right and drop off the students on the East Side of the
M.S. building. The driver will
then make two left turns and exit out of stadium drive back onto Rt. 40 where
they entered. No one is allowed in
the M.S. front parking lot, which is reserved for Bus's.
High School Student Drop Off
From Rt 40 North –
Using the Far North Crestway Entrance, make a left then an immediate Rt. Turn
and proceed south on the “One Way Drive” to drop off students at Door 4. (This
will be opposite of years past.)
From South Crestway –
Using the far south newer gravel road entrance, turn Right and enter the
Student Parking Lot Behind the High School. Loop around the far end of that lot and turn left onto the
exit drive by door 5 and 6. Exit
being cautious of the drop off traffic coming south from Door 4.
Student Parking by Permit Only
Seniors will be issued specialty tags that will direct them to the parking lot that they may park in. All other students with parking tags will park on a first come first
serve basis in the lot behind the middle school and then the West Stadium Parking Lot. No cars should be parked in the North Stadium Parking Lot. All students parking east of the High
School will need to walk behind the M.S. then between the Construction Fence
and the Middle School building to arrive at the front sidewalk used by students
riding buses. Students will still
enter/exit the High School through the Court Yard as in years past.
