Northwestern Middle School News and Notes
Good Afternoon Wildcat Country!
It has been such an honor for our team to work with your students and serve this community! Thank you for your constant support of our school! We could not do this hard work without you.
We are officially in summer mode. I have shared our hours below but please know you can email your grade level AP or me anytime if you need assistance.
During June, I will be sending out newsletters and information every two weeks. After the July 4th holiday I will restart the weekly letters as we begin gearing up for the 2021-22 school year.
It has been my pleasure to serve as the Principal of Northwestern Middle School this year. I look forward to seeing our students and teachers back here in August!
If you have any questions or need assistance, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Summer Learning Transportation
Summer Learning transportation routing is now available in Webquery. Parents can put in their address and their student’s summer learning transportation route should be there. This is very new and we are continuing to make transportation adjustments based on changes in summer learning registrations.
Summer Curbside Meal Distribution
Students attending face-to-face summer school or Pre-K will receive free breakfast and lunch meals during their school’s scheduled mealtimes.
For children not attending face-to-face summer school, Summer Curbside service provides an opportunity for families to drive through and pick up FREE Meal Kits for children 18 and under, or those under 21 with special needs. Meal Kits will include a weeks’ worth of meals. Meal Kits contain a variety of kid-friendly choices such as whole-grain rich breakfast cereals, 100% fruit juice, assorted fresh fruits and vegetables, and low-fat milk.
Summer Curbside service will kick off on Wednesday, June 9th at 20 school sites throughout the district. Summer Curbside sites will be open on Wednesdays from 8:30-9:30 AM.
The suggested pick up for Northwestern Middle Schools is Summit Hill Elementary School.
