Student Safety in the Mornings

We are concerned about the safety of our students before school starts. Students should not arrive to school and should not be dropped off at school prior to 8:30 am. There is no adult supervision prior to 8:30 am unless your child is enrolled in our Before Care Program (Kids Club).


If your child needs to arrive early, you may want to consider enrolling your child in our Before Care Program. You can find more information on the program at the following link. https://winchester.northvilleschools.org/apps/pages/index.jsp?uREC_ID=1229958&type=d&pREC_ID=784049


Thank you for your cooperation!

Lost & Found Reminder

All Lost & Found items will be donated during the holiday break. Please have your child check the Lost & Found over the next 2 weeks for any items that may belong to them.
