Northville Public Schools remains vigilant in monitoring the ongoing guidance provided by State and local health and education officials, and in sharing timely and accurate information as it becomes available. To that end, we have developed this "Frequently Asked Questions" document with COVID-19 updates, additional guidance on closures, and resources available to support students and families. We will continue to update and add to the FAQs as this situation evolves and additional or new information is available. Questions may be emailed to mailto: firstname.lastname@example.org.

First, thank you for your patience and support as we collectively navigate an evolving COVID-19 response plan. Governor Whitmer has directed the closure of all K-12 schools statewide through at least Tuesday, April 14, 2020 in order to slow the spread of COVID-19.
The health and well-being of our students, families and staff is of the utmost importance to all of us. With the identification of two presumptive positive cases of Coronavirus 2019 disease (COVID-19) in Michigan, along with the rapid increase in the number of cases nationwide, the level of concern continues to rise. Governor Whitmer has declared a State of Emergency in Michigan to maximize efforts to slow the spread of the virus, and has provided interim guidance from the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services on community mitigation strategies that apply at the individual, organizational and community level, including schools, child care centers, workplaces, health care organizations, etc. These strategies are aimed at protecting individuals at risk of severe illness, as well as trying to prevent a sudden, sharp increase in the number of people infected with COVID-19 to minimize the disruptions to daily life and limit the demand on health care providers and facilities.
On March 10, 2020, Northville Public Schools voters will be asked to consider replacing our current Sinking Fund millage with a new Sinking Fund millage that will extend the current .9519-mill levy from 2021 to 2025 and provide for broader uses of the proceeds, including instructional technology and security equipment. The current levy expires on Dec. 31, 2020. The .9519-mill five-year request is a REPLACEMENT of the existing Sinking Fund millage and would NOT result in an increase over the current millage rate. School families and community members can learn more about Northville Public Schools’ March 2020 Sinking Fund Millage Replacement request at upcoming Community Forums/PTA meetings scheduled throughout January and February.
Enjoy a restful Winter Break! We look forward to welcoming students back on Monday, January 6, 2020. Please take a moment to view the latest Northville Connections: the Northville Public Schools digital newsletter.
