Welcome to Northern Local School District!

Important Information

 Northern Local Retraction


In Response to the December 22nd article in the Perry County Tribune:


Northern Local Schools did NOT host an assembly that was conducted by the Quasar company promoting the safety of biosolids.


Over the last eight years Sheridan Middle School has invited local business professionals to speak to students about careers in their respective fields.  One of the presenters invited to speak to the six grade class is the Wastewater Plant Manager for the City of Columbus. The topic of the presentation gave the broad scope of what happens to wastewater as it goes through the sanitation process.


If there are questions or concerns regarding the article from December 22nd, please contact the superintendent at Northern Local Schools.

School Safety
The Northern Local School District has recently learned of a TikTok challenge encouraging school violence on Friday, December 17. While these threats are not specific to Northern Local schools we are vigilant in regard to student safety and wanted to make all parents aware of this most recent social medial phenomenon.
Local authorities are aware of the challenge and we are working cooperatively with them to protect our students. Please take the time to speak with your children about the pressures of social media and the potential consequences of engaging in this type of behavior.
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.
