Principal's Message

  • August 24, 2020

    Dear Northwood Families,

    Typically, my letter to families regarding the new school year is sent at the beginning of August.  I have waited to send it this year because so much of our schedule and our planning for the start of school was still in flux. I now have more definitive plans and schedules to share.  Thank you for your patience and your understanding about the complexities of starting school during this challenging time.

    Topics in this letter include:

    • MIYFS Counselors Restored
    • RSVP Process - Required of All Families
    • Red Remote Learning Plan
    • Open House Virtual Events
    • Remote Learning Kits and Supplies
    • First Day of School
    • Student Class Placement
    • Important Dates 

    MIFYS Counselors Restored

    I am excited to share that Laura Falsgraf will once again serve the Northwood community as our Mercer Island Youth and Family Services counselor in the coming year.  We are thrilled to have her services dedicated to Northwood families and students.  

    RSVP Process - Required of All Families

    Even though this is a unique year, some tasks remain the same. To complete your child(ren)’s enrollment you must complete the RSVP process annually. This is online and should take just a few minutes. This “RSVP” process is open now and will need to be completed before the first day of school, September 2nd. I encourage you to take a few moments and complete this process as soon as possible because teacher assignments will not be available to you until the process is complete. This is an important process each year…please also review all contact information (including emergency contacts) to make sure we have current information to communicate with you. To complete your RSVP, please log into your Skyward Family Access account and complete all forms, including uploading requested documentation. Details on how to do this can be found here: https://www.mercerislandschools.org/Domain/175

    IMPORTANT: You will not be able to access who your child’s teacher will be until you have completed the RSVP process. Teacher assignment will be available on Friday, August 28th at 5:00pm for all who have completed the RSVP process.
