Letters were sent home to students that are carrying a negative balance. It is important to make sure these balances get paid. We are asking for parents to make sure your student has lunch money on their account. We will no longer accept lunch charges for the remainder of the year. It is important to please send in your breakfast or lunch money.
If you have any questions please call: Mrs. Bires @ 419-691-4651 ext. 1630
Field Day/Olympic Day Update from Mrs. Phillips:
We will be recycling these devices at the end of February.
Toys at School:
If children bring toys, they need to keep them in their backpack until it is inside recess time. If toys are out during other parts of the day, the teachers will take them and they will need to be picked up at the office.
We know the children need things to do during inside recess, so we allow the toys then. It is just important to understand they are bringing their favorite things at their own risk!
(Obviously, toys are permitted if teachers are having a reward or special activity and they have made you aware)
Remember that attendance in school each day is critical for all students. They must be in school to learn and progress. Please do your part to get your children to school each and every day on time. School hours are 8:45-3:10.

Schoology- Be sure that you are logging on to your child's Schoology to check out their assignments, class work, grades, and teacher feedback. I also post announcements here for the students to read. If you do not know your password to get in to Schoology, please let us know. If you are having difficulty seeing exactly how your child is doing on assignments and what they should work on, please contact the classroom teacher.
Northwood App- Our App is still under construction. It is a work in progress, however you can download it now and begin receiving notifications. On the App, you will see things like updates, calendar of events, and other school/district information. Find the Northwood Local Schools app in the Google Play Store and on iTunes.
Online Backpacks- Be sure you are checking out our online backpacks if you wish to see flyers about things going on in and around our community! Here is the link to the online backpacks:
Thank you for reading! Please let me know if I can help you with
anything throughout the school year!
