  • 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.
