4th Quarter Return to In Person Learning Five Days a Week

It is true that this year has been a challenging year and Norwood City School District is committed to providing as much support as we can to help our students.  Norwood City School District will return to in-person learning five days a week for all grade levels beginning March 22. We will also continue providing a virtual program during the 4th quarter. We are grateful for our staff members who have and will continue to work hard to ensure that all of our safety measures remain in place during the 4th quarter.  We thank our families for their partnership through this year and look forward to continuing that work together

We welcome our students back into the buildings and we want to let you know that if you feel your child needs extra support in their learning we encourage you to reach out to your child’s teacher.  We are working on interventions and opportunities for our students during 4th quarter, summer and next school year.  We will have various programming available.  Please look for our District Learning Plans to be posted in April.
 
The last quarter also brings state testing requirements that will be given in April. All 3rd grade students through high school students will participate in Ohio State Testing.
