Our city has experienced one of the worst storms in years. We hope our Northwood families have endured the storm safely. Some of the area around our school was impacted by the high waters. Thankfully, Northwood did not endure any damage. Our children absorb everything in their environment and are in need of their usual consistency.
Northwood will resume classes on Tuesday, September 5th.
In light of all the affected, we would also like to have a collection of items at our school. Items to be collected will be delivered to Northwood families in need as well as local shelters.
- Paper goods
- Bottled Water
- Trash Bags-Large (Contractor size)
- Cleaning Supplies (Such as clorox, etc.)
Thank you in advance for your help and support.
In conjunction with Klein ISD and Harris County authorities, Northwood Montessori will remain closed until Tuesday, September 5th. This decision is made out of abundance of caution for the life of our families due to the widespread nature of this catastrophic event. Please stay safe and off the roads.
