» 2020-2021 School Year Learning Model Guide: View our Striving Together document | (en Español)
During a school year that looks nothing like any other we’ve ever experienced, Northfield Public Schools wants families and students – from our newest learners starting their first days in pre-K to our rising senior class of 2021 – to know that we care about their mental health and emotional well-being. To offer a bit of support, this virtual calming space is intended to provide easy access to resources that can help families and students relax during the unprecedented months ahead.
