Northwood will have staff on campus to assist students to adhere to social distancing guidelines. Students will be directed to pick up their personal items, this will not be a social gathering. Please do not plan to arrive with a friend or walk the halls in a social manner as this will not be permissible out of concern for the health and well-being of students and staff.

Where are the grades?

I have received a few emails about grades not being put in PowerSchool. The grades are there, you just have to did a little deeper. When you see the main screen that shows all the quarters and the grades, the fourth quarter should have a blank or a lowercase i, it looks like the incredibles i. When you click on that "i" it will show the list of assignments. Look under the grade columns and there will either be a "P" or an "I". If you have any questions, please reach out to the teacher.

Virtual Office Hours

Just a reminder that our staff members will be available during the day to answer questions and help students. This can take on many forms like participating in Zoom rooms, connecting on Google classroom, sharing information on google docs, etc. Below is a list of the times they are having "office hours".
