Important Communication form District Superintendent, Mrs. Kelly Miller

Please click on the green "Read Full Story" button to access the most recent communication from District Superintendent, Mrs. Kelly Miller.

Mrs. Miller sent notification this morning with the news that the Norris School District had to make the difficult decision to return to distance learning for all students starting Monday, December 14, 2020. Distance learning will continue through Friday, January 8, 2021, and our goal is to return to in-person instruction on Monday, January 11, 2021. Parents and families will be notified immediately should this date need to be adjusted. Curbside grab and go lunches will still be available at Norris Middle School from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

*Winter break is from 12/21/20 - 1/3/21.

Important Links & Documents

Click on the green "Read Full Story" button to access important links and documents that will help students and parents prepare for when campus reopens on 11/30 & 12/1.

The return back to in-person instruction will be a slow one. Teachers will review safety procedures and classroom expectations for the students who have selected to return to campus on Monday (11/30) and Tuesday (12/1). To accommodate for this, teachers will be delivering asynchronous assignments for all students who will be at home on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. Thursday, December 3rd, will be the first day where teachers will be delivering both in-person and distance learning teaching simultaneously.

Clarification: Students will eat lunch at home. The lunch time shown within the video is for staff members. Students will need to be picked up in the designated parking lot at the end of 7th period.
