Dear Northwood Families, My hope is that you all had a safe, healthy, and enjoyable Thanksgiving week and are having success this week during this Phase 3 remote setting. As planned, we are scheduled to return back to Phase 1 beginning Monday, December 7th which is how our District was operating prior to the holiday. Due to the fact there are still unknowns and uncertainties relating to COVID-19, I strongly urge every family to continue following the recommended practices that are aimed at reducing the spread of this virus including reviewing the Washburn County Public Health COVID-19 Screening Checklist (attached) before sending your child back to school next Monday, December 7th. Please keep in mind that our plan may change to a different phase should it be deemed necessary by the school district. We will make every attempt to give notice prior to a change in plan to ensure that there is time for families to make necessary arrangements. There has been discussion about moving to Phase 2 on Monday, December 21st and Tuesday, December 22nd. Phase 2 consists of students in grades 8-12 learning remotely from home using teacher planned activities and instruction, while PK-7 would still attend in person. We will keep you posted on a final decision. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1QXtvHO66xS-OBmOrDTSwGBzUBBiQLSnj/view
There will be Middle School Boys Basketball practice on Monday and Tuesday from 4:00-6:00 this week.

The Back to School Picnic on August 18 has been cancelled due to large gathering restrictions.
We thank Spooner Health for their recent donation of 100 childrens cloth masks. We greatly appreciate our local support!
Back to School Information - The first day of school is Thursday, August 20th. The Back to School packets were mailed out to families earlier this week. The District has implemented many new infection control and prevention practices and procedures aimed at increasing the health and safety of our staff and students. Some examples of these proactive measures are listed in our Northwood Together plan which is located on our district website homepage. Also included in this plan are the 4 phases that represent an overview of the district plan for the education setting during this COVID-19 health crisis. The District is planning to begin the school year using the Phase 1 model which involves staff and students being back at school with face-to-face instruction. The school environment will include some new practices where acceptable, feasible, and practical such as physical distancing, limited class sizes, increased outdoor learning opportunities, and much more. The District is also adopting the details listed in the Office of the Governor’s Order relating to preventing the spread of COVID-19 by requiring face coverings in certain situations. We have great alternative options for our students including the traditional setting of face-to-face including our Northwood Elementary, Middle and High School, and NorthStar Charter School. We also have our Northwood Virtual School and Distance Learning options for families that are seeking a learning environment for their children that allows them to be homebound. As we work with families, we are confident that we can identify the best learning environment for each student in the Northwood School District. Please contact the office with any questions or to discuss an educational plan for your child(ren). We will be releasing daily details and examples of our plan beginning next week.
Hey all! I am sharing an art contest opportunity from the American Legion, Department of Wisconsin. The contest is called Patriotism and Purpose.

Hope you are all enjoying your summer!
Northwood School District is looking for contractors to give estimates for building outdoor learning spaces in order to take advantage of the wonderful space we have on our district property. This will also help us prepare for the school year as students will be able to enjoy some fun outdoor lessons. See image provided by Walker Lumber Company. We already have a 13 x 24 concrete slab. Please contact the district if you know of interested builders. Evergreen Pride!
Northwood Families - We hope this message finds you and your families healthy and enjoying summer. As we continue working on the responsive plan for returning to education this fall, we are focusing on the health and safety of our students and staff along with the needs of our families. This tentative plan highlights just a few proactive measures the district is taking along with details of a plan for returning to education with the following options: Option 1: Northwood School District (In-Person with Blended Options) - We will be using the 4-Phase plan as specified within the "Northwood Together" document. Option 2: Northwood Virtual School (Virtual Setting) - Families may be unaware, but this option has existed for numerous years and is currently being updated. The district is working towards new and creative options for students to continue their education plan while having virtual options with Northwood teachers. This is an option that allows current Northwood students to enroll by simply contacting the office. Please contact the school district with any questions as we continue to plan. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1ZSMCWRb2CWGPcPCfna6jrzzJyMzVhGIl/view?usp=sharing
