I would like to say good job to the teacher or aid who yelled and got the kids stopped before they got hit this morning because their parents don't wait in line for drop off. Parents just wait in line like everyone else, are your kids worth the extra 5 minutes in the car?
My son just started attending m-th the week we went straight remote, with going back to hybrid does he resume his m-th schedule this Monday then?
When the kids go back next week is it the 1/2 day or starting full time?
Mrs. Porter is making learning fun this Friday morning ❤️🐾 Thank you to all of our Teachers for everything you’re doing to keep the kids engaged and interested in learning! Please know the extra effort and COUNTLESS HOURS you’re putting into their education doesn’t go unnoticed!
Thanks to everyone that was involved in the streaming of the Jr. Hi. Football game Wednesday afternoon! It is appreciated!
I was wondering if the elementary yearbooks where in yet.
Thank you to the NWSD for sending the elementary kiddos home with Wildcat masks last week. Our little one was so annoyed it had to be washed (again) after wearing it to school yesterday. 🖤❤️🖤❤️🖤❤️🖤
Any NW parents having issue with their kiddos chromebooks not having the right charging cables and not turning on????
Who do I contact if my child’s login for the chrome book is not working? I left a message for someone in IT that the office transferred me to. Not sure if there is someone specific or a phone number to call.
Did anyone get their childs assignment for am or pm sessions yet? I received a remind notice for a survey about transportation, but I don't know what transportation we will need without knowing what schedule the kids are in.
Thank you
Shout out to Mr. Christensen for letting us come in for a meeting to explain how the remote learning works! We were a little nervous because we've never done this before but now I feel better about it all! They are all working so hard to make sure our kids get a good education! Thanks for all that you guys are doing!!!
Are we going to get information regarding school in the mail??

Kevin Saxton, Peggy Kemling and Mark Swanson were recognized by the PSBA (PA School Boards Association) for their years of dedication and service as school directors. They have served on the NWSD board for the past eight years. Many thanks to these volunteers for their countless hours of service!
