Northampton High School due to destroy temporary student records from 2008
NORTHAMPTON — Members of the Northampton High School class of 2008 who want to obtain temporary student records due to be destroyed this summer must submit written requests to the school by Aug 5.

Students who graduated from NHS in 2008 and want to obtain their temporary records should submit written requests to: Guidance Office, Northampton High School, 380 Elm St., Northampton, MA 01060.
Kurose said members of that class will be able to pick up their records in person after Aug. 15 at the high school’s main office after showing photo identification.
