Crossroads Middle School
Hello, Crossroads Families! It has been a great week here at Crossroads.......but there are a lot of tired adults walking around the halls! I think the kids are adjusting to the early mornings and long days a little better than us old folks! Next week our 7th graders head off to Camp Roger on Wednesday (Templar Team) and Thursday (Vogel Team). This is always a highlight of the school year for our 7th graders with lots of friendships forming and a lot of team building taking place amongst students!
We do have short sleeved Black Out t-shirts on sale for $10 in the Crossroads Office. If you or your child would like to purchase one, feel free to send cash or a check made out to PORT. Enjoy the long Labor Day weekend!

Student Device Insurance Plan
Northview Public Schools issues Chromebooks to all of its students. These devices are traditionally kept at school for grades DK -2; students in grades 3 through 12 often transport their Chromebooks to and from school.
As we roll out these devices, we have encountered issues with breakage, loss, theft, damage, etc. Because we do not want to pass excessive costs back to parents, Northview partners with an insurance company to provide parents with peace of mind for devices that are under their responsibility.
We are happy to announce that we are working with School Device Coverage, who has been in the Chromebook insurance business for 9 years and as a company for 34 years. It insures some of the largest districts in the nation as well as individual small schools. We have negotiated an annual cost of $26 and want you to be aware of this optional insurance package.
We will have an open enrollment period from Sept. 5th to October 21st
To learn more about the details of this, please read our FAQ document to get started.
School Breakfast and Lunch
For the 2023-2024 school year, Northview is excited to offer free breakfast and lunch to all students. This will save families valuable time and money!
Even though meals will be provided for free, it's important for families to complete the free and reduced price meal application at https://northview.familyportal.cloud/.
Families who qualify under this program are eligible to receive additional benefits, such as discounts on home internet, discounts on high school Advanced Placement (AP) test fees, etc.
Completing the application helps Northview, too! For example, the district may receive additional funds to enhance educational opportunities as many state and federal grants are based on the number of students eligible for free and reduced price meals.
We appreciate you taking the time to complete the online application today!
School Pictures took place on Wednesday, August 30th. Students received a form from the Photographer to bring home with ordering information. If you do not have that form or have questions, please contact the photographer directly by visiting their webpage at https://www.geskusphoto.com/contact-us
All orders will be shipped directly to your home.
