3/20 Letter to Families

Dear Sharpsburg Families,

I want to thank you for your understanding and patience during this difficult time.  Please know that we ask everyone to check the Norwood City School’s website (, school social media and email daily.  We are committed to staying in contact with you and your children to ensure that we can provide the best learning during the challenging times at hand.

This is unchartered territory for us all, and during times like this, we need to come together, help others in greater need than ourselves and be willing to what is asked of us to stay healthy.  Please take the extra precautions that are recommended by the CDC.  The following link will provide you with some information: .  It provides up to date information and will adjust as more information becomes available. 

We will continue to serve lunches to our NCSD students at each building from 11am to 1pm on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.  While we are not serving on Tuesdays and Thursday, we will provide extra food to cover those days as well on the MWF pickup days. 

Our staff is continuing to learn as we go and are coming up with better ways of communicating information and learning to our students.  I encourage you all to continually check out the Sharpsburg At Home Learning page within the website, as it is frequently updated with new work, staff reading books on video, and other wonderful learning opportunities.

With restrictions across the nation, please be safe, practice social distancing, and try not to go out unless it is necessary.  Be sure to stay up to date on items at hand and feel free to contact us with any questions and/or concerns.


Mr. Joe Westendorf


What's happening at Sharpsburg

Loren Long Author Visit

In November, our 1st graders had a very special guest; renowned children's author and illustrator, Loren Long, visited Sharpsburg.  He shared many stories of his work as an author and illustrator, while sharing the story of our favorite little tractor, Otis!  Each student was able to get their own copy of an Otis book, along with a personalized autograph from Loren. We are so grateful he came to spend the morning with us and we are happy to welcome him to our Sharpsburg family!
