Norwood Family, We hope everyone is doing well and enjoyed your summer break! We are excited to begin the 2021-2022 school year. School will begin Wednesday, August 11th. Our school day will start at 7:55 a.m. and conclude at 3:05 p.m. Breakfast will be served from 7:25- 7:55 daily. We will offer our Before School Program beginning August 11th, but due to enrollment procedures with the Boys & Girls Club our After School Program is scheduled to begin August 16th. As I'm sure most of your are aware, the Covid Delta variant virus has emerged again with a vengeance in our part of the state. With that being said, we will follow many of the safety protocols that were in place last year. However, it is our intent at this time, to resume the many extra curricular activities that our students have missed so much. We will continue to follow Norwood Public School's Safe Return Plan and follow guidance from the Center for Disease Control, the Oklahoma State Health Department and the Oklahoma State Department of Education. At this time we will not be mandating masks for our students and staff while on school grounds, but we are highly recommending them for everyone. masks will be mandated, per federal law, on school buses. Many changes have been made on our campus this summer in preparation for the 2021-2022 school year. Many thanks to the Norwood Board of Education for their insight and willingness to provide a great facility for our students and our community. We will be having Open House on August 9th from 5:00-7:00 p.m. We encourage everyone to come, meet your child's teacher and tour our facility but please remember to practice social distancing at all times. We realize there will be many specific questions and concerns. Please feel free to contact us at 918-478-3092. Once again we are excited to begin our school year. Our students safety and educational needs has always and will always remain our top priority. Working together, putting our kids as our top priority, will always lead to success. Enjoy the remainder of your break and we will look forward to seeing everyone August 11th. Keith Fisher
