Hello Northwood Families- We are happily awaiting the arrival of your children this week! There are a few things we need to bring to your attention for the upcoming weeks.
First, we are experiencing some issues with transportation provided by the School District of Philadelphia. Unfortunately this is out of Northwood's control. If you received a letter or spoke to a teacher last week, please follow the directions you received. Remember that students should be at their stop at least 10 minutes before the scheduled time. Please be patient and be prepared to arrange transportation for the upcoming week if you have NOT received any information from the school district. We are working closely with the school district to get schedules and routes confirmed. We will provide any additional information as it becomes available.
Please send a note to your child’s teacher to let us know if they are riding the bus home on the first day. This is particularly important for students in grades 1 through 4.
Secondly, we have not yet received transpasses for the 7th and 8th grade students. Transpasses will be distributed on the same day we receive them from the district.
And finally, CORA has not yet received funding for the after school program. A letter outlining an alternate arrangement made by Northwood and CORA will be sent home on Monday with students from kindergarten through grade 6. Please reach out to CORA at 215-342-7660 with any questions.
