Shooting in Union City

Dear NHUSD Families,

I am writing with some very sad news about a shooting incident that occurred at approximately 1:26 a.m. on November 23, 2019.  What we know is that this shooting occurred in the area of Sherman Drive and Colgate Drive in or near the Searles Elementary School parking lot where two juveniles were were shot and killed. One was a student who attended school in the NHUSD, the other was a former NHUSD student. We will have support for our students and staff at the sites where these students attended when school resumes after the Thanksgiving break. We also work closely with the UCPD to ensure that our schools are as safe as they can be. We will send out further updates if new information becomes available.
