Important Information

Important information regarding Northern Local Schools 2021-2022 school year.
   For the upcoming school year, Northern Local Schools will not be requiring masks to be worn in buildings and during school sponsored events.  Students, staff and community members may choose to wear a mask, but they will not be required.
   The additional cleaning and sanitizing protocols that were implemented last year will remain in place.  The safety of our students, staff and families is our highest priority, and we believe we have excellent procedures in place to keep our school community safe.
