Northfield Campus Message to Families:

Dear New Trier Freshman Families,

I am excited for the Class of 2024 to start their high school experience. We all want this year to get off to a good start, so I wanted to share information about the first day of school.

Teachers will open their Canvas courses by 5 p.m. today. Canvas is our learning management system where teachers post syllabi, assignments, and other information; all students learned about Canvas during their iPad self-orientation. Make sure your student logs into Canvas on their iPad. Teachers will share information on Canvas about how to join class on the first day of school.

Over the past few weeks some schedule changes were made to balance classes. PowerSchool has your student's correct schedule. The integration of Canvas with PowerSchool will be completed at 3 a.m. Wednesday. Therefore, for a few students there may be a discrepancy in the Canvas courses they see tonight. If this is the case for your student, don't worry. Canvas courses will be correct by tomorrow morning when they are ready to begin their classes.

As a reminder, we have an extended adviser room on the first day of school, and that schedule is attached.
