We have created a video for new kindergarten families to get to know Brennan Woods Elementary. If you have questions, please call the school office at 636.677.3400.
To register your child, please pick up an enrollment packet at your child's school, complete the information, and make an appointment with the school to complete enrollment.
Does your child have trouble with some components of reading? Attached is a link that is filled with amazing resources to help you support your child at home with reading. This was created by our Northwest R1 elementary school Reading Specialists. Together, we analyzed the components of reading to help give specific strategies, information, and practice opportunities for your student to grow in his/her reading.
Please click on the link to view the presentation. If you are unsure what components of reading your child needs help with, please feel free to ask me.

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.
Please check out our PTO page under the Parents section to learn more about how you can help out our school.
In an effort to provide support for Northwest families who rely on the availability of school meals, we will have breakfast and lunch pick-up for Northwest K-12 students who are all virtual or on a hybrid schedule. Students who are all virtual will receive five days of meals and students who are on a hybrid schedule will receive three days of meals.
