The Trucker Imprint
The Norwalk High School student newspaper is the Trucker Imprint. The paper (when first published was called the Signal) was published around the start of the 20th century until it was discontinued in the early 1980s. During the 1993-1994 school year, The N.H.S. Underground was founded and produced four editions but folded amidst the district's continued budget deficits of the mid-1990s. The paper was introduced again to the high school when it moved to its new location at 350 Shady Lane in 2001.
