A Message from Mrs. Caudill

This week I want to share with you the joy I experienced meeting with a couple different student groups about their STEAM Fair projects. I LOVE how our kids think. All the groups I talked with had an end goal of helping someone or something. How amazing is that?! Thank you for teaching your children's selflessness. Thank you for teaching your children empathy. Thank you for sharing your children with us everyday. They are the reason we do what we do.

Stay well,

Devon Caudill

Northville Schools will host drive-thru COVID-19 testing

In partnership with the State of Michigan and MDHHS, Northville Schools will host drive-thru COVID-19 testing opportunities in the Northville High School parking lot (45700 Six Mile Rd, Northville, MI.) The drive-thru testing event is open to all Northville residents and the public and will be taking place on Sunday, April 18, 2021 and Sunday, April 25, 2021, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

We have been advised by the COVID-19 testing contractor that they have encountered some programming issues with the pre-scheduling module for Sunday’s COVID-19 testing event at Northville High School, and as a result, the scheduling feature has been deactivated. However, if you have previously made an appointment for Sunday’s testing event prior to the deactivation of the scheduling module, please advise the parking lot monitor upon entering the site, and you will be moved to a separate line.

We apologize for any inconvenience. Although the pre-scheduling module has now been deactivated, we continue to encourage your participation in the COVID-19 testing event on Sunday.

During the drive-thru testing event, participants will receive a rapid test and receive results with 15 minutes. Individuals who receive positive rapid test results will be given the opportunity to receive a follow-up PCR test, receiving those results with 24-48 hours.

2021 Non-Homestead Operating Millage Renewal Informational Meetings

Northville Public Schools has a critical Operating Millage Renewal proposal on the ballot to renew the current operating millage on all non-homestead property for five years, 2022 to 2026. This millage applies only to non-homestead property such as businesses, rental properties, and second homes. This millage renewal will impose no new taxes. This millage generates about $10 million annually for Northville schools, representing 16% of the district's overall operating revenues. Learn more about the Non-Homestead Operating Millage Renewal on the District website, or join district administrators and members of the Board of Education at one of the upcoming informational meetings that will be held via zoom on Thursday, April 15 from 4-5 p.m. and Monday, April 19 from 6-7 p.m.

Election Day is Tuesday, May 4, 2021.



As you may be aware, there has been a significant increase in the number of COVID cases in our community, and across Michigan over the course of the past several weeks. Citing the increasing case rates and variant spread in Michigan, the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) has reinstated a standard 14-day quarantine for close contacts of COVID-19 cases effective immediately.

Please remember to use the Wayne County Health Department COVID-19 Daily STUDENT Symptom Screening Tool (2.16.2021) each morning to determine if your child can come to school.

We thank you in advance for being mindful of these requirements, as they keep your children and ALL of our children and staff safe.
