North Families,

This week we welcomed some learners back for in-person learning. We've had a smooth transition back and our students are doing a great job adhering to the safety protocols we have in place. Our educators are working diligently to meet the needs of remote and in-person learners and we appreciate your support! We are #villagenorth and we are #CISDstrongertogether!


Thank you PTO
Thank you to our wonderful PTO for providing breakfast to our staff last week and sweet treats in the longe today! This was very appreciated by staff. Also, the additional PPE that was purchased by the PTO has arrived. These additional resources are an added layer of support for our staff and students. Again, thank you!


Progress Reports Now Available  in HAC
Please log into the HAC and check your child's grades. Reach out to your child's teacher if the need additional support. We also have the virtual tutoring hub available additional support.
