Summer FREE Meals for students

Free meal service for kids under the age of 18 will continue this summer through Elyria Schools and Aramark school foodservice.  

Beginning June 9, 2020, the distribution schedule is changing. The sites of Prospect and Franklin elementary schools will close for the summer but the sites of Elyria High School, Oakwood Elementary School and the existing Northwood Middle School (on Gulf Road) will reopen for service.

Meal distribution will take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays only beginning June 9 and through August 27, 2020. 

Distribution at these sites will follow a drivethrough model until further notice. Families do not need to exit their vehicles during pick up. Likewise children do not need to present during pick up. Upon arrival, families will be provided with multiple-days-worth of cold breakfast, lunch and dinner items for the specificed number of children in the household that are under the age of 18. 

The new disribution schedule is as follows: 

Elyria High School (Parking lot nearest West Ave. and 5th St.): 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

Northwood Middle School (700 Gulf Road): 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

Thank you and enjoy your summer! 


 INCOMPLETES for not doing work matter for students!


When students don't complete 4th Quarter work it has a negative impact on them.


First is the stress felt by now having to make up the work not completed during the 4th

Quarter and the feeling of being overwhelmed.  


Second is that once teachers are released for the summer students are still responsible to

complete work in order to PASS their 4th Quarter subjects.  Getting help from teachers will

be more difficult after June 3rd.  Teachers have regular "office hours" now.


Third, if a student has incompletes for the 4th Quarter they could be ineligible for

for extra curriculars in the fall.  Things are changing daily and we do not yet know what the State of Ohio or the OHSAA will determine as the summer months move on.  It's easy to complete the work now incase the worse case is decided. Please don't risk it.   


Fourth, students need to complete work in all subjects.  We've heard rumors students

think completing all the work in one subject will get them a PASS for the 4th Quarter.  This

is not true.  Students must complete work in all subjects just as they did when coming into

the school building for classes.     


How do I know if my child is completing the work?


1.  CONTACT YOUR CHILD'S TEACHER!  NMS teachers and staff want 

students to PASS their subjects.  


2.  CHECK POWER SCHOOL.  When students/parents log into their PowerSchool account

you will see under Q4 and [ i ].  If you click on that [ i ] it will take you to the class page

with the grades.  Remember, you will either see a P or an I.  "P" means that your student

passed that weeks work, "I" means the work is incomplete.  If you have questions you can

reach out to the classroom teacher NOW.  We are here to help the best we can.
