Playgrounds and Fields Closed

Dear Northville Public Schools Community,
 
We are facing an unprecedented global, national and local public health emergency, one in which we are all called upon to take the necessary steps to protect our own health, and the health of others - particularly our most vulnerable community members.
 
In accordance with the Governor’s Stay Safe. Stay Home. Executive Order, and by Order of the Oakland County Health Division, Northville Public Schools has closed all of our school playgrounds and fields, including ALL play structures. 
 
At this time, the tracks at Tom Holzer Ford Field and Northville High School remain open only for the purpose of exercising for individuals who follow social distancing guidelines:  remaining at least 6 feet apart from one another and who do not gather in groups larger than 10.
 
Signs to this effect are expected to arrive tomorrow, and will be posted/planted at each of our school locations. 
 
Please take steps to monitor and ensure that all members of your family are adhering to these guidelines.  We do not want our police officers/first responders to have to devote their time to monitoring playgrounds. 
 
We know that these are challenging times for everyone, and appreciate the many sacrifices being made, along with the positive steps being taken to help support one another.  
 
Stay safe and be well.
 
Sincerely,
Mary Kay Gallagher
Superintendent
