  • Snow Days vs. AMI Days

    In the event of inclement weather, Northwest now has the option of calling a traditional snow day or an AMI day. A snow day is a day in which all district buildings are closed. Students and teachers do not have to log in. AMI (Alternative Method of Instruction) are "virtual" days. Buildings are closed, but students learn at home with assignments provided by their classroom teachers. 

    When faced with inclement weather, Northwest will use a combination of traditional snow days and AMI days. Other circumstances, such as the timing of the weather event and the forecast, will always play into the decision. Northwest will notify families via our communication channels (phone, text, email, website, social media) if it is a traditional snow day or an AMI day. 

    Northwest currently has students on three different schedules in our district: PreK-5 attending five days per week in-person, grades 6-12 who attend on an A/B hybrid schedule, and OnLionEdu students, who are all virtual. 

    An AMI day will look like a virtual day. Students will use their Chromebooks to access Google Classroom(s) and complete the work provided by their teachers. Students will be expected to attend Google Meets with their classroom teachers. Based on the forecast, if a student does not have internet access, a work packet will be sent home with them the day before.

    Elementary students will receive a schedule that communicates when they should log on to their classes. Secondary students should follow their A/B schedule for that particular day. There are no classes on snow days, including OnLionEdu students. AMI days will not impact OnLionEdu students. They will proceed with their regularly scheduled lesson plans.

    Please see the Parent Guidance for AMI and AMI-X (extended closure) days.

  • Exciting News!!!
    We are happy to announce that as of today, Sept. 15, 2020, all children ages 1 to 18 years old will receive free breakfast and lunch in the Northwest R-I School District.
    This is an extension of a state-funded program to feed children that will be available until the end of the 20-21 school year.
    The program is retroactive to Aug. 31, 2020, so meals purchased on a student’s account between Aug. 31, 2020 and today will be credited. Please allow four to six weeks for the credits to appear on your student’s account.
    In an effort to support Northwest families, meal pickup is available to students who are hybrid, all-virtual, or children living in the district but not enrolled at a Northwest school, ages 1-18.
    To register for meal pick-up, please complete the form on the Northwest website at https://www.northwestschools.net/foodservice.
    Students who are in school five days a week do NOT need to fill out this form; they will receive free meals at school.
    If you have not completed the Free and Reduced Lunch Application, we encourage you to do so.
    If you have questions about the program, please email chawkins@northwestschools.net or call the Northwest Food Service office at 636-671-3554.
