NPS Students Picking Up Schedules This Week

NORFOLK - The first day of school for Norfolk Public Students is Thursday, August 14th – but teachers head back to the classroom before that.  Director of Student Services Mary Luhr says most teachers will report to school on Monday, but new teachers start this Thursday.  Students in grades 10, 11 and 12 and half of the new kindergarten students will start school on Friday, August 15th.  To get students ready for the start of the school year, Luhr recommends establishing a routine with a bedtime early enough to allow students to get up in time the next morning.  Students in grades five through 12 are picking up their schedules this week. Luhr reminds parents that school pictures are being taken when students pick up their schedules, and students should be dressed appropriately.
