  • Do You Have a New Student or are you Withdrawing a Student for the 2020-21 School Year?

    The Northwest School District strives to ensure that we have the necessary staffing to provide students with a high quality education.  Each year we review student enrollment to determine staffing for the upcoming school year. With our buildings being closed, this provides a challenge to accurately staff our schools.  So, we need your help.  

    If you have a student that needs to be enrolled or you need to withdraw your child from Northwest, please fill out the form below.  This form is for enrollment information gathering only. It does not mean that your child is enrolled or withdrawn from the Northwest system.  

    Please complete a separate form for every student in your household.

    If you have any questions please email Mrs. Roesch at kroesch@northwestschools.net

  • Northwest Family 3-D Prints Mask Straps for Healthcare Professionals and Community

    The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way we do things. Stay-at-home orders have become commonplace. While we stay home, safe from catching or passing along the virus, many of us can’t, including essential workers and healthcare professionals. Some have taken it upon themselves to help, even while staying at home. Joe Groppe, a freshman at Northwest High School, and his mother, Tammy, are among those people.

  • A Message about Snow Days from Dr. Kirchhofer

    Lion Nation, The weather, or at least the forecast, has not been our friend lately with it seeming like every week, there’s another snow day. While we hope that spring comes sooner rather than later to put an end to these unplanned class cancellations, history shows that we’re probably not finished with the winter weather.

  • Are Classes Canceled? A Look at How Snow Days are Determined

    “Are classes canceled?” is a question that Northwest administrators hear any time meteorologists predict winter weather or winter weather occurs. Social media, the Administrative Center, and all of the school offices are inundated with messages asking the question. Undoubtedly, the answer will disappoint someone, whether it is a parent or student, wondering why classes are canceled or not. Northwest Superintendent Dr. Desi Kirchhofer is the person to make the final decision, but he is not the only person with input. Kirchhofer explained the process of deciding to cancel classes or not, and that it is more than just looking outside and seeing snow on the road.
