Dear Parents/Guardians:

For the parents, staff, students, and community of New Smyrna Beach High School

It has been an amazing opening, and this school year is off to a great start. We have placed early emphasis on student safety and school security requiring all students to acquire and maintain an NSBHS photo identification. Daily, students enter through our single point of entry showing their student identification for access to the campus. Please encourage your son/daughter to bring their school identification to school daily. Currently, masks are optional for students, but mandatory for staff and visiting adults on our campus. Frequent handwashing and/or hand sanitation is strongly encouraged. Each classroom is equipped with hand sanitizer and other necessary sanitation supplies. If your son/daughter is sick, please keep them home. Each classroom teacher has established a Canvas or Microsoft Teams platform which is used for receiving and completing assignments during absences due to required quarantine or isolation. We need your son/daughter in school daily to benefit from the total learning experience. Education, like life, is not a spectator sport – one cannot score from the sidelines. Success goes to those who go after it, not to those who wait and hope for it. There is a saying that “Anything worth doing is worth doing well.” As the year progresses, ask your student to consider what he/she hopes to get from school this year – and what he/she intends to invest. Students that are in school regularly give themselves the greatest opportunity for academic success. We are inviting you to work with us in making this school year the best. Despite the challenges of the pandemic, we will do whatever it takes for our students to succeed and graduate. By always working together, we will maintain our school as the best in the district! This year, and every year, we challenge our students to demand their very best. It is our goal for students to make their “legacy” one to remember. Thanks for all you do! Sincerely, Timothy Merrick Principal

Back on The Farm

‘Cuda Chronicles’ September 2021 • Issue #1 Published Six Times Per Year New Smyrna Beach Senior High School 1015 Tenth Street New Smyrna Beach, FL 32168

To kick off the new school year the New Smyrna Beach FFA chapter and Alumni came together to host a back-to-school Barbeque on August 20, 2021. With many guests, the event was a huge success. The NSBHS FFA chapter held their chapter meeting where they played kickball, ate hot dogs and hamburgers, and mingled with family and friends. This event wouldn’t be possible without the help of the FFA Alumni who planned and cooked for the event. This meeting made for a great kick off to the school year. During the meeting, the chapter thanked the 2021-2022 Platinum, Silver, and Blue T-shirt sponsors as well as gave an update on some of the upcoming events. For those who didn’t attend, the NSBHS FFA chapter is looking for volunteer coaches for certain Career Development Events this year. The next meeting will be held on September 8th from 4:30 -7:30pm on the agriculture farm where the chapter will be hosting the AG Olympics. To stay up to date and get reminders about upcoming FFA events follow the New Smyrna Beach FFA on Instagram at nsbhsffa and on Facebook at, new Smyrna Beach High School Agriscience Academy. We look forward to seeing you at our next meeting! 1-800-JUSTICE | RUEZIFFRA.COM
