Due to changes in state laws regarding school discipline, Garrett County Public Schools are re-instituting  after-school detention at the middle school level.  After-school detention could possibly be assigned in situations that may have previously resulted in a student being removed from class for either behavioral or academic reasons.   At Northern Middle School, after-school detention will be held on Mondays from 3:15 p.m. until 4:30 p.m.  Parents or guardians of students being recommended for after-school detention at Northern Middle will be notified on Thursday of the week prior to the detention assignment and will be expected to make arrangements to pick students up at 4:30 p.m.  For further information on this subject, please contact the principal.
