Dear Rushwood Families:
We hope you are enjoying your summer break! We are looking forward to a fabulous 2016-2017 school year.
Mandatory online forms for the 2016-2017 school year will be available beginning on August 3, 2016 at www.nordoniaschools.org/parentportal. These forms must be updated each year and are invaluable for student safety in the case of an emergency. If you are new to the district, you will need to set up a parent account and then add your student with their student ID number. If you need your child’s student ID, please contact the Rushwood office on or after August 3rd at Carole.Kalman@nordoniaschools.org or 330-467-0581.
If you have pre-ordered school supplies, your student’s supplies will be delivered directly to the school in a personalized box. This box will be at the student’s desk during our Meet, Greet, and Drop night.
Summer Reading must be completed before the beginning of the school year. Information on the Summer Reading Program is available on the right hand side of this page, please click on the Summer Reading link.
Meet, Greet, and Drop night for all students is scheduled for Monday, August 22nd, 2016 from 4:00PM-6:00PM. You will be able to tour the school, meet the staff, and drop off your student’s school supplies and academic fees.
Enjoy your summer, we look forward to seeing you all in August!
