American Red Cross Blood Drive
Northern Middle School Blood Drive will be held on Monday, November 11 from 1:00-7:00.  Please donate while you are visiting for Parent Teacher Conference.  Your child will have information about this opportunity to donate blood.  Call the school or 1-800-RED Cross to schedule an appointment.
 
Notes for Tardy, Absent, or Picked Up Early
A friendly reminder to our parents/guardians that when your child is tardy, absent, or gets picked up during the school day, we must have a note on file so your child’s absence is excused.  Your child can bring their note(s) to the guidance office for proper coding.  These notes are very helpful if you need to file an attendance appeal on your child’s behalf.
 
Child Find Announcement
State and Federal laws require that the Garrett County Board of Education provide free and appropriate educational program for all children with disabilities living in Garrett County.
