This Week (7/27-7/31/2020) at Northwood High School

“Academics, Activities, Alumni, Arts & Athletics… This is Northwood High School”


Good evening Northwood Families,

We hope you have had a restful summer and are excited about the start of our 2020-2021 school year! It will certainly be one for the history books. We know that you have a million questions about what things are going to look like, when we will have Open House, and when parking passes will go on sale. At this time we have decided to temporarily postpone parking pass sales until we have a better understanding of when students will return to the school building. We promise that we will get that information to you as soon as it becomes available. 

If you have questions regarding Chatham County’s Virtual Academy for the fall semester, please visit the Chatham County School website for more information. 

This week we will be releasing student schedules based on the courses that they registered for during our Spring Registration Window. Please listen carefully to the following information regarding the release of class schedules and the process for schedule change requests. We have made every effort to schedule students for the courses they requested. 

Senior schedules will be available online in PowerSchool beginning at 8:00 a.m. on Tuesday, July 28th.  

Junior schedules will be available online in PowerSchool at 8:00 a.m. on Thursday, July 30th.

Sophomore schedules will be available online in PowerSchool beginning at 8:00 a.m. on Monday, August 3rd

Freshmen schedules will be available online in PowerSchool beginning at 8:00 a.m. on Wednesday, August 5th

If you are unable to access PowerSchool to view your schedule, please contact the front office between 9 am - 2 pm to request a paper schedule. Please note that the schedule released is subject to change prior to the first day of school. 


Schedule Change Request Information

Students may request a schedule change for one of the following reasons:

  • You are a senior and you need the requested course to graduate

  • You have not taken/passed the prerequisite for the course

  • You have already taken this class and passed it for credit

  • You are requesting to move up a level (Ex: Standard to Honors or Honors to AP)

  • You would like to change electives (list of available courses by semester & period will be posted)

Please remember the following:

  • Changes will be considered based upon seat availability

  • Classes will not be moved to accommodate lunches, the schedules of others, specific teacher requests, etc.

You can find the Schedule Change Form on the Northwood High School homepage. This Schedule Change Request Form will close on Tuesday, August 11th at 3:00 pm. 

Counselors will review requests in the order they are received. All schedule change requests must be submitted through the online form. Counselors and administrators will be unable to respond to phone calls and e-mails concerning schedule change requests until all requests submitted online are addressed.

Have a restful week Chargers,
