Yearbook Update

Hello Northwood Yearbook Buyer,

Many buyers are asking when the yearbooks will arrive. Jostens' production plants and customer service centers have been forced to limit operations since March and are just beginning to reopen in phases. Yearbooks will ship to Northwood sometime in June or July.  

We will communicate distribution plans once yearbooks have arrived at Northwood. Jostens apologizes for any delays, but as mentioned above, their plants have been impacted by closures and new guidelines to help keep their employees safe that has caused delays in production.

Once yearbooks arrive all buyers will be notified and an announcement will be posted on the school’s website and via social media. 

If you have a balance to pay you can pay your balance via Jostens' customer service phone line(1-800-JOSTENS). Please note they are also experiencing extremely high call volume with longer than normal wait times due to social distancing restrictions and school closures. 

There are still some yearbooks left. You can order online at jostensyearbooks.com. Any questions or concerns please email Ms. Iris Schwarz, yearbook adviser, iris_n_schwarz@mcpsmd.org

Thank you for your patience,

Iris Schwarz


Mindfulness is the practice of bringing your full attention to one thing, in the present moment, and without judgement. Incorporating it into our lives empowers us to choose the actions and reactions we have to life's circumstances by providing tools and strategies to meet these demands. The purpose of Mindfulness is not to strive for perfection, but to continuously practice it for your overall well-being.

We invite you to enjoy the document linked here with Mindfulness resources and activities to support the Northwood community.
