For verification of an address as being in the Northview school district contact the township in which the address is located (Ada, Grand Rapids, or Plainfield) or contact the Administration Building (616-363-6861). Placement in an elementary building will be made based on class size and availability, not always on attendance area.

Immunization Requirements ***

Students must be current with all immunizations required by law or have an authorized waiver from State immunization requirements. If a student does not have the necessary shots or waivers, the principal may remove the student and/or require compliance with a set deadline. This is for the safety of all students and in accordance with State law. Visit the Kent County Health Department at Access Kent (accesskent.com), for immunization schedules. Contact Healthy Kids (1-888-988-6300) for details on free health care coverage, including immunizations.

Michigan’s Public Act 316 of 2023 was recently enacted which requires all children enrolling in their first year of school (kindergarten/first grade) to receive a dental screening prior to starting school beginning in the 2024/2025 school year.

 

Dental assessments are not available through the local health department in Kent County, however, parents/guardians are encouraged to have a dental assessment completed on their student prior to the beginning of the school year at a private dental office. Parents will submit proof of the dental screening to the school/ administration office prior to the first day of school but no earlier than 6 months prior to the start of school.
