The Northfield School Board wants to start the 2013/2014 school year in early August. They are not adding days to the school Calendar. Why take summer away for no logical reason. People already have their plans set for next summer. Kids will miss out on 4- H, summer camps and vacations. Older kids saving for college will miss out on summer employment. Meetings on this issue will take place on 1/15, 1/17 and 1/22 from 7pm to 9pm in the Northfield High School upper cafeteria. Please sign this petition and attend a meeting to tell the Board WE DON'T WANT THIS! They will be doing a final vote the end of January and sending their plan to the state for appoval. We need to stop this in the next couple of weeks or it will be too late. We will be gaining a few extra days in May as school will be done around May 27th but, August will be gone for making family memories indifinitely.
