    Outdoor Facilities Update

    Dear Northmor School Community,

    As you may have heard, Phase 1 of the outdoor facilities project is nearly complete.  Despite a reasonable amount of uncertainty in the economic future of our nation, state, county, and local school district, we continue to maintain a very positive financial outlook.  For nearly two years, the NLSD Board of Education, administration, and a select committee developed a master facilities plan.  We developed a long-term master facilities plan to address our aging track, football field, lighting system, baseball fields, softball fields, parking areas and bus garage parking area. The overall feeling from these groups was that the facilities situation was not going to get any better, and without acting, we were limiting opportunities for our greatest asset-students! Failing to address the facilities need of the district will cost more each year we wait. Inflation, cost of building materials, labor costs, and other construction related costs continue to increase.  Regardless of timing, our students need better and safer facilities.  Overtime they will only become more unsafe, more overcrowded, and more inadequate each year.  

    These upgrades are possible due to the sound fiscal management by the Northmor administration and BOE.  With over 6 million dollars projected in savings at the end of this school year, the BOE has decided to earmark 2.7 million dollars of this money to upgrade the site improvements.  There will be NO NEW TAXES to the Northmor taxpayers to provide funds for these improvements as the money is already in the savings account to pay for the upgrades!  The BOE has decided rather than pay for the entire project from the savings account the district entered into a lease purchase agreement for the funds to pay for this project over the next ten years with the money that is currently in the savings account earmarked for the project to cover the annual installment payments. This savings account is separate from general fund operations.

    The BOE and District administration feel that these improvements are long overdue and will greatly enhance the campus and educational atmosphere here at Northmor Local Schools for many, many years to come.  They will provide the latest and most up-to-date facilities for our students, staff, and community.  Our community deserves the best and we are more than happy to be able to provide this wonderful opportunity with NO ADDITIONAL cost to our constituents. Furthermore, if you ever have questions or need clarification regarding any questions with the outdoor project or district finances do not hesitate to contact District Treasurer, Gina Deppert or myself at the Board of Education Office. We are here to assist you in any way possible.

    Sincerely,

    Chad A. Redmon

  • Back To School Notice

    Dear Northmor School Community,
    On Thursday, July 2, 2020 the Governor announced the release of Reset and Restart Education Planning for Ohio’s Schools and Districts. In the coming  weeks, I will be working with Morrow County Health Department, other local superintendents, district administrators and union leaders to develop a plan that best fits our needs and resources at Northmor and ensures the health and safety of all stakeholders. Our goal will be to present a final plan to the school community in early August.

    All of us at the Northmor Local Schools are excited with the prospect of having students back in the classroom in September. Stay safe and healthy!!!

    Sincerely,
    Chad A. Redmon

  • 20-21 Student Forms

    Dear Parents/Guardians,

    FinalForms is now open for the 2020-2021 school year. Please log in at your convenience and review your student’s forms. FinalForms saves data entered from last school year so you only need to make changes as needed and electronically sign the forms. Select any sport or extracurricular activity that your student is interested in for the entire school year. Students in grades 7-12 must also log into FinalForms and sign forms as needed.

    Parents of Students Entering Grades 7-12: When filling out FinalForms, you will need to enter your student's email address so the student can sign the forms. You will need to enter their personal email address or look up how to use their wireless phone number as an email address (Northmor’s student knightpride email is turned off during the summer.) 

    Thank you for your assistance in streamlining our paperwork processes and saving resources at Northmor Local School District.

  • Fall Sport Registration and FinalForms for the 2020-21 School Year

    Attention Parents and Athletes Entering grades 7-12 for the 2020-21 School Year:

    Due to COVID 19, we have not been able to hold sign-up meetings as we usually do for fall sports. As a result, we are asking that students email their respective coaches to notify them of their intent to play. The following are the coaches to contact for each sport:

    Football, grades 7-12 contact Coach Scott Armrose: [email protected]

    Volleyball, grades 9-12  contact Josh Lehman: [email protected]

    Volleyball, grade 7 contact Jeff Moore: [email protected]

    Volleyball, grade 8 contact Tami Burgess: [email protected]  

    Boys Cross Country, grades 9-12 contact  Kevin Ruhl: [email protected]

    Girls Cross Country, grades 9-12 contact Mark Yaussy: [email protected]

    Boys and Girls Cross Country, grades 7-8 contact Andrew Shaffer: [email protected]nightpride.org

    Golf, grades 9-12, contact Mark Wiseman: [email protected]

    High School Cheer contact Megan Hammond: [email protected]

    Junior High Cheer contact Sarah Gibson: [email protected]

    In addition to contacting your coach, please also complete FinalForms for the 2020-21 school year. Parents and students will simply need to verify information from the previous year and only change what is needed, and then sign off on the forms at the bottom of each page. Please make sure to register your child for all sports you think they will participate in for the 2020-21 school year. 

    Finally, Morrow County hospital has postponed their annual free sports physicals. They have not yet set an alternative date. When that information is released we will send out that information as soon as possible. Students can also get their sports physicals done at their family physician or at urgent care. When you get your physical, please print the form from FinalForms and take it to the physical appointment with you. After the physical, turn the completed form into your coach or the Athletic Director. 

    Again, thank you for your patience as we continue to navigate the uncharted waters that COVID 19 has created. Any updated information will be communicated as it is received. Thank you and GO GOLDEN KNIGHTS!

  • Board Approves Facilities Upgrade

    After several years of dialogue regarding the safety, condition, and overall appearance of our outdoor athletic complex, the Northmor Board of Education, Superintendent, and Treasurer are moving forward with the renovation, building, and updating of these facilities.

    These upgrades are possible due to the sound fiscal management by the Northmor administration and BOE.  With over 6 million dollars projected in savings at the end of this school year, the BOE has decided to earmark 2.7 million dollars of this money to upgrade the site improvements as detailed on the campus map.  There will be NO NEW TAXES to the Northmor taxpayers to provide funds for these improvements as the money is already in the savings account to pay for the upgrades!  The BOE has decided rather than pay for the entire project from the savings account the District will enter into a lease purchase agreement for the funds and pay for this project over the next ten years with the money that is currently in the savings account earmarked for the project to cover the annual installment payments.

    The BOE and District administration feel that these improvements are long overdue and will greatly enhance the campus and educational atmosphere here at Northmor Local School District for many, many years to come.  They will provide the latest and most up-to-date facilities for our students, staff, and community.  Our community deserves the best and we are more than happy to be able to provide this wonderful opportunity with NO ADDITIONAL cost to our constituents.

    Go, Golden Knights!
