5-11-20: Note from Principal

Niles West Students,

This is the last week of school, if you can believe it. I don’t think any of us imagined that we would spend the last 9 weeks of the school year learning remotely. I hope you and your families are all in good health, both physically and mentally. It has been challenging for us all, but I do believe that we will come out of this better, stronger, and more resilient. I want to provide some information before we end this school year.

I want to congratulate you on doing your best under the current circumstances.

The last day to turn in any classwork is this Friday, May 15. If you have major assignments or projects to turn in, do not wait until the last day. Please be mindful of your teachers’ time and if at all possible, do not wait until Friday to turn in weeks worth of work. If all students were to do that, this doesn’t give them a lot of time to grade everything before finalizing your semester grades. Please let your teachers know if you have any questions about classwork, assignments, or due dates.

You will be able to pick up your belongings on designated days/times after the end of the semester. We have removed contents from all hallway and PE lockers, bagged students’ belongings, and labeled them with your name. We have taken any textbooks or school materials and will check them in. You will be able to pick up your personal belongings via curbside pickup and return anything that belongs to the school, including textbooks, library books, hotspots, loaner Chromebooks. Students will not be allowed to enter the building and should not leave their cars. Our staff that will be working will be wearing masks and gloves and practicing social distancing. We will send more detailed information in the weeks to come.

The schedule will be:
