Welcome to Northside Elementary School

Hello, Northside Parents and Students!

We hope everyone had a safe and enjoyable summer with friends and family! At Northside, we are gearing up for another great year of learning and cannot wait for 1st-5th grade students to begin school on September 8th; and Kindergarten on September 10th. Even during these trying times, we are committed to providing quality education to all students. Here are some important tidbits for this upcoming year:

Northside has added a cafeteria space, allowing students more room to enjoy their lunch

Discovery Kids has moved into their addition on the west side of Northside

Per the Minnesota Department of Education policy, all students and staff members will be required to wear a mask

Parents/guardians will not be allowed in the hallways of Northside, our new conference room will be available for any necessary meetings. 

Students need to bring their own water bottles as the drinking fountains will beturned off until further notice

In the mornings, students will report to their classrooms once they arrive.

Breakfast will be delivered to students and eaten in their classrooms. 

We are asking parents to not drop off their children until  7:45 am. There will not be before-school recess as students will not be intermixing among other classrooms. 

K-3rd Grade students will be using iPads in their classrooms while 4th and 5thGrade students will use Chromebooks.

This year is going to be one of a kind and the entire Northside staff is looking forward to the challenge. With your help, we can ensure a safe and positive learning environment for our students.  If you have any questions/concerns you can contact me at or call the Northside office at (320) 842-2717.
