Child Care

Child Hand PrintWe know that a hybrid/in-person schedule is particularly challenging for families with young children. That is why we are partnering with the YMCA to offer FREE all-day child care every Wednesday beginning on August 26, 2020. This all-day care is in addition to the regular before/after school child care that will be offered Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.

To ensure there is adequate space and staffing, please use this link to let us know if you are in need of all-day child care on Wednesdays. This brief survey is for planning purposes only. An actual registration form will be sent out shortly. The deadline to indicate your interest in all-day child care on Wednesday’s is August 12.

We will provide regular FAQ updates.

Virtual Learning Information

Student on a laptopWe are excited to be able to offer a 100% virtual learning option for any DK-12th grade student. Northview virtual courses will be taught by Northview teachers and follow the Northview curriculum standards, with some possible exceptions in grades 7-12 (based on demand and availability).

Virtual courses start on August 25 using our new Canvas Learning Management System. If you’re interested in the 100% virtual learning option, please sign up using this form.

If you are interested in participating in the in-person hybrid option, no action is needed.

Canvas – Your Student’s Classroom Online

Canvas Logo - Your Child's classroom online.Northview has partnered with Canvas to provide a common remote learning platform for students in all grade levels.


All virtual learning courses will include both synchronous (learning in which students and teacher are engaging in learning at the same time) and  synchronous (learning that occurs without real time interaction) learning. Students must commit to all parts of the learning to be successful in Northview’s virtual courses.


To the extent possible, all virtual learning courses will be led by Northview teachers using Canvas. Courses will follow the Northview curriculum and assessment standards. Due to availability and demand constraints, some courses may not be offered or may utilize an online vendor, such as  Michigan Virtual. Students will work with their school counselor to determine the best schedule and course fit.


All students who require transportation for the 2020−21 school year must be registered.
