Norwood Family, We hope and pray everyone is doing well. Norwood will resume traditional instruction for all grades, Monday, January 25th. However, we will be implementing a stricter masking policy with students and staff in hopes of keeping our doors open. Please do NOT send your students to school if they are not feeling well. This will be extremely important in controlling the spread of this virus. Working together, hopefully we will be able to remain with traditional instruction. We want our kids here! It will also be fine if you decide for your student to remain with the distance learning format at this time providing students complete required assignments. We are also happy to announce that the UV lights in our ventilation systems have been installed and are functioning. We feel this will help tremendously with keeping the air circulation within our facility safer. We are excited to return and hope to see everyone Monday. Stay Safe & God Bless Keith Fisher

Norwood Family: We hope everyone is doing well. While we all have been working hard to keep our students/staff healthy, we have been notified of confirmed cases of Covid within our school. We have notified all parents of students we believe to be possibly directly impacted. If you didn’t receive a call, we don't believe your student was directly impacted. However, with this new information we have decided to transition to all distance learning for the remainder of next week Tuesday Jan. 19- Friday Jan. 22. There will be no classes Monday Jan. 18 in observance of MLK Holiday. If there are no new cases reported, we plan to return to traditional instruction Jan 25. Please inform the office if your student/family become infected. We will reevaluated at the end of next week. Our google classrooms will be open Tuesday morning at 8:00 am. Our drive in meal service will be available with the same guidelines as used previously. We apologize for any inconvenience, but remain committed to the health of our students and staff.

Norwood Family, We hope everyone is doing well. These past few months have been difficult for everyone. It sometimes seems all we hear is bad news so I would like to share some good things that are happening at our school. We were so happy to see our students safely return to campus. There was so much excitement from students and staff. We are also very pleased to announce that Norwood School and the entire community have eleven new storm shelters located on the west end of our campus. These are available for the community whenever needed. I know it makes us all feel better knowing our students/staff have a safe place to go during school hours should the need arise. Many thanks to former County Commissioner Mike Brown, Danny Taylor, and new County Commissioner Chris Jenkins, for making this possible for our community. It is truly appreciated. We have, thanks to the insight of the Norwood Board of Education, started the installation of UV lights in our ventilation systems and air curtains at our entry doors. This project was started several weeks ago. They are scheduled to be back on our campus, Friday, January 15th, to finish installation. Due to this fact, there will be no traditional classes next Friday, January 15th. This decision was made in order to allow them to install without the worry of interrupting classes. There will also be no school on Monday, January 18th in observance of Martin Luther King Day, and a scheduled teacher professional development day. While we regret not having our doors open traditionally Friday, January 15th, we are thankful to have this system installed within our school which will hopefully help to keep our students safer and healthier. Due to a computer software glitch, report cards will go home with students, Tuesday, January 12th. We also have some extra popcorn for sale from our previous fundraiser. Call the office if you are interested. Once Again: Friday, January 15th will be a virtual day and Monday, January 18th - No School Thank you all so much for supporting our students and our school. Norwood is a great place because of people like you. Proud to be a Hornet! God Bless, Keith Fisher

Norwood Family: We hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and a great New Year. Norwood School will return to traditional instruction Monday, January 4th with additional safety precautions in place. However, it will be your choice if you decide for your student to remain in the virtual program providing students log in daily and complete their assignments in a timely manner. Our goal has been and will continue to be keeping our students and staff as safe as possible while providing a quality education to our students. Please do NOT send your child to school if they are not feeling well or exhibiting any symptoms of the Covid virus. Simply call the office and your child will be able to participate virtually until they are feeling better thus not missing any instruction. Working together, we can help ensure less transmission of any virus helping keep our students/staff healthy . This will be extremely important in keeping our doors open. We realize that this has been a difficult year and everyone is ready to return to “normal “. Hopefully, better times are around the corner. Thank you for supporting our school and we look forward to seeing everyone Monday, January 4th. God Bless, Keith Fisher
