Faxes for the Guidance Office may be sent to Chris Atchison at Crossroads (616-363-7868) beginning Monday, June 23rd.

Notice will be sent once our network access has been restored and faxes can once again be sent to the High School and Guidance Office.

Beginning Monday, June 23rd the High School will be closed and the offices will be moved over to Crossroads from June 23rd thru August 15th. Summer hours during those dates will be Monday thru Thursday, 8:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

Thank you!  We hope you have a wonderful summer!


AVOID THE SUMMER SLIDE!

Students who do not read over the summer may experience a loss in reading comprehension and rate.  To avoid the summer "slide," make sure you are reading at least six books during the summer months.  The Northview website provides suggestions for engaging reading.  Take advantage!  The Plainfield Library is another good source for "good reads."  Enjoy the summer months with a good book!
