From The Front Office
Please pick up any medication that we have in the office on the last day of school, June 13th just before the end of the day at 12:15. The office will be closed at 4:00 on June 13.
Beginning in 2017, student report cards were made available online through MiStar Parent Connection on the district website. This service allowed parents with elementary, middle and/or high school students to access and print their child’s report card at any time. For the past two years, parents have accessed these digital report cards for the first three card markings instead of receiving a paper copy. However, at the end of the school year, a paper report card was automatically generated and sent home.
Please see the circulated memo for more information.

The Northville Public School District requires that a background check via the Internet Criminal History Access Tool (iChat) with the Michigan State Police be conducted for individuals who school officials reasonably expect may have regular and continuous contact with students, or may at times be with students absent the presence of a school staff member. This may include but is not limited to: 1. pre-student teachers 2. field trip chaperones 3. regular volunteers 4. extra curricular group leaders 5. anyone handling cash or district funds.
