Daylight Saving Time Ends

Daylight saving time ends on Sunday, Nov. 7th. Don't forget to turn your clocks back one hour, and enjoy the extra hour of sleep.

Traffic Changes Coming--Oct. 25th

The Traffic Change begins on Oct. 25, 2021, which is right after the fall break. Please know that the exit will be a right turn only at peak times.


Cars will enter from Hwy 246/Division Street and exit onto Jefferson Parkway. You may want to consider the side of your car where your booster seat is located.



Here are the links from the City of Northfield of videos explaining the traffic flow change:

Labeling Clothing

All outdoor clothing should be labeled with your child's name inside. This makes it easier for us to return it to them if they should lose it. We have many items in the lost and found, and some items are rather expensive.

Spirit Wear Order

Below is the flyer for Bridgewater and Raider gear. The deadline for ordering is Sunday, October 24th.

Picture Retake Day

Wednesday, Nov. 9th is Picture Retake Day in case your child was absent and missed Picture Day. I will send out the online link as soon as I receive it.
