Northwest Local Schools will be closed due to staffing, Thursday, January 13, 2022. Due to high numbers of staff absences this morning and the inability to efficiently cover classrooms, the decision was made to close all schools on Thursday. As staffing issues continue, there may be a need, in the future, to temporarily assign classes or buildings to remote instruction.
Northwest Online students and Butler Tech students who take classes on Butler Tech’s Campus will still be expected to report to class on Thursday.
NWLSD staff are asked to report to work as scheduled. This day will be used as an opportunity to review and assess our current Covid processes.
We understand that this may be an inconvenience for many of our families. Please understand that this decision was made out of necessity. We are taking every step possible to ensure the health and safety of our staff and students and will maximize this opportunity to review, assess and make adjustments as needed. We appreciate our families’ patience and understanding around this process and we remain thankful to have families who join with us in caring for the health and wellbeing of our dedicated staff and students.
