March 16 Update - Information Regarding School Closure - message from Dr. Jami Jo Thompson

A MESSAGE FROM SUPERINTENDENT DR. JAMI JO THOMPSON - CORONAVIRUS UPDATE TO NPS FAMILIES (3/16/2020 P.M.):
Dear Families, 

The Nebraska Department of Education has issued guidance to schools indicating that:  “By Monday, March 23rd, all schools across the state are to move to an alternate learning structure with students no longer reporting to a traditional setting, until further notice. Schools should be prepared to operate in the alternate learning environment for six to eight weeks, with a review of operations every two weeks. N-SCAS will be suspended for the 2019-2020 school year.”

Thus, the earliest date that Norfolk Public Schools could reopen is Monday, April 6th.  

Grab N Go Lunches will begin this Wednesday, March 18th, and home-based learning options will begin on Wednesday, March 25th. More information about these plans will be provided tomorrow.

Please let your children know that our NPS teachers, administrators and staff will miss them very much and we are looking forward to their return!  And, please stay healthy!

Dr. Jami Jo Thompson,
Superintendent, NPS
