Dear Norwood School District Community,
Yesterday, Governor Polis issued executive orders to close all public and provide schools from March 23rd to April 17th. This means that NPS will continue our home based, online learning after spring break through April 17th. In conjunction with this order, effective today, San Miguel County has asked all residents to shelter in place until at least April 3rd and leave their homes only for essential needs, like food and medicine, therefore our school facilities, including grounds, are closed to the public. Lastly, thanks to our amazing Food Services Director, Leslie Stropko, as well as Deb Bockrath, who with the help of Maggie’s Pizza, will be providing free breakfast and lunch to all students beginning today. Grab and go meals will be available at Maggie’s Pizza from 11-3pm Tuesday - Friday. The meals will include breakfast and lunch with a limit of one per student per day. Please call Maggie’s directly should your child need delivery, (970) 327-0303 or if you have questions. Grab and go meals will be available on Mondays from 11am to noon at the school on Summit street through curbside pick up. All meals will continue through our regularly scheduled spring break and the school closure dates.
We thank you for your continued patience and support through this trying time. Know that we miss seeing the faces of your children each day but will continue to support them from afar.
Sara Rasmussen and Perri Gipner, K12 Principals
