Don’t Miss The Bus!

All students who require transportation for the 2023−24 school year must be registered. Please note, transportation is available for resident students only.

The Transportation Department uses a website/mobile app for bus stop information. It’s called, TRAVERSA RIDE 360. Check the Transportation Department’s page on the district website for instructions on how to download and use the app. We are unable to give out bus stop information over the phone. Thank you for your understanding!

Before/After School Childcare

In partnership with Northview Public Schools, the Wolverine Worldwide YMCA offers before and after school care in each of our elementary buildings for students in grades DK−6th. Interested families can register for child care at

More information can be found here.

Don’t forget to download and complete all of the required forms, medical and otherwise, for your child.

School Chromebooks

For more information regarding school provided Chromebooks please read the Device Handbook and Acceptable Use Policy. For details on the managed security, please visit our Chromebook information page.

Incoming 3rd and 8th Grade Students…

Students who will be in 3rd and 8th grade for the 2023-24 school year will be issued a Chromebook in the first week(s) of school.

Students who turned in their Chromebook prior to summer vacation…

Any student who turned in their Chromebook will receive their Chromebook back just as it was returned to the district. The Technology Department will be able to provide more information to the building offices as to when the redeployment will be taking place in the coming weeks.

Chromebook Device Coverage Plan for 2023-24

Northview Public Schools issues Chromebooks to all of its students. These devices are traditionally kept at school for grades DK -2, whereas students in grades 3 through 12 often transport their Chromebooks to and from school. As we have rolled out these devices, we have of course encountered issues with breakage, loss, theft, damage, etc. Because we do not want to pass excessive costs back to parents, Northview has decided to partner with a company to provide parents with peace of mind for devices that are under their responsibility. We are happy to announce that we are working with School Device Coverage, who has been in the Chromebook device coverage business for 9 years and as a company for 34 years. It insures some of the largest districts in the nation as well as individual small schools. We have negotiated an annual cost of $26 and want you to be aware of this optional device coverage package.


To learn more about the details of this, please read our FAQ’s document to get started.

Northview is excited to offer free breakfast and lunch to all students starting with the 2023-24 school year thanks to the Michigan Healthy School Meals Program! Even though meals will be provided for free, it’s important for families to continue sharing household income information in order for our schools to receive full access to federal and state funding for educational programs that our students are entitled to.

Please be sure to fill out the Free and Reduced Price School Meals application. More information about this and the application process can be found on the Food Service page.


The district may get additional funds to enhance educational opportunities because many state and federal government grants and aid are based on the number of students eligible for free and reduced price meals.
