The Norwalk-Ontario-Wilton School District School Board has approved increasing lunch prices by 10 cents for the 2018-2019 school year.  Prices will be as follows:  4K & 5K - $2.25; Grades 1-6 - $2.55; Grades 7-12 - $2.75; Adults - $3.40. 

 

The Norwalk-Ontario-Wilton School District is looking into the possibility of doing online registration next school year for students (this would replace filling out multiple forms at the beginning of the year).  Online registration will be done through Family Access in Skyward.  In order for parents to be able to complete online registration they will need their username and password for Family Access.  Mrs. Watters in the high school office has all usernames and passwords.  Please contact her either by email swatters@now.k12.wi.us or by phone 337-4401 to get your information.  If we do not have online registration in place, Family Access is still a great way to have access to your child’s grades, lunch account balance and attendance (to name a few).  Please watch for upcoming announcements.
