Annual Online Registration

Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year!
All new and returning families: It's time to fill out your required online Annual Registration!

Every year, all families (including those who recently enrolled) are required to fill out the digital Annual Registration for each student. Families may complete these forms through MiStar ParentConnection. Through this process you will be asked to update your student’s emergency contact information, home address and health information, review our technology use policy and student handbooks, learn more about PTSA/PTA, access the web store and much more.

Need Help? Many of the most commonly asked questions can be found on our FAQs page (located in the upper right-hand corner of ParentConnection.) If you have further questions, please email the helpdesk at parentportal@northvilleschools.org

  • All NHS students must have the Annual Registration completed before Transition Day the Week of Monday, August 22, 2022.

NEW: Free School Meals for All Students Has Ended

When the 2021-2022 school year ended, so did free meals for every student. While the federal government funded a program that allowed all students access to free meals during the COVID-19 pandemic, Congress recently declined to continue funding this program.


We understand this change may cause you to worry. However, there are important steps you can take NOW to be sure your student receives the meals they need this school year.


If your student qualifies for free or reduced priced meals, they can still receive them this fall, but you must take action to make it happen. Please complete the 2022-2023 online application for free or reduced meals. The application is available on the district’s Food Service webpage. The online application link can also be found in the MiStar Parent Connect portal. Paper applications are also available at the school where your child attends.


If you do not qualify for free or reduced meals, you may begin depositing money into student accounts at any time to prepare for the cost of school lunches. Money can be deposited online before school starts through the MiStar Parent Connect portal. Once school resumes money can be deposited online or can be sent to school with your student (cash or check). Information on meal prices for the 2022-2023 school year are listed below:


Lunch Meal Price - Elementary $4.00


If your student has a negative lunch account balance, we encourage you to pay it off as soon as possible and then begin depositing money into the account to prepare for the 2022-2023 school year. You can check your students balance online and make a payment online, through the MiStar Parent Connect portal.


Completing an application is the only way to be considered for free or reduced meals next school year. Please take action now.


For assistance, please contact our Food Service Department at 248-344-3690. This institution is an equal opportunity provider.


Thank you for your understanding,
Northville Public Schools

School Lunch Program

The Northville Public Schools provides a hot lunch program for interested students.


Families must preorder lunches for preschools and elementary students. Orders must be in by 8am for preschools students and 9 am for elementary students to receive a lunch that day. The system will not allow you to order after the time listed above. For your convenience, meals can be preordered up to 30 days in advance. To avoid any issues, we recommend ordering the night before.

School Supply List

Please see below for a list of optional school supplies suggested by teachers for students to bring to the classroom to support their learning. *Please note that the supply lists are simply suggestions of helpful items and are strictly voluntary, as Northville Public Schools provide the necessary supplies and materials for your child’s successful school experience.
