Update Regarding Norfolk Public Schools’ Plans for Returning to In-Person Instruction

Norfolk, VA – During a press conference held this morning, Governor Ralph Northam provided new guidance regarding in-person learning options.  The administration of Norfolk Public Schools will present an updated plan for returning to in-person instruction to the City of Norfolk School Board by no later than Wednesday, February 17, 2021.

 Throughout the 2020-2021 school year, the Norfolk Public Schools governance team has continued to monitor local health metrics while planning for students and staff to safely return to school for the remainder of the 2020-2021 academic year. As such, these collaborative efforts have helped to refine established plans that will allow the school division to comprehensively support the NPS community with safely transitioning students and staff back to school for in-person instruction. The administration’s updated plans will include a revised timeline that aligns closely with the approved phased approach for students’ return to school, prioritizing those with critical instructional needs.

 With the recent availability of the COVID-19 vaccine for employees, Norfolk Public Schools’ administration remains committed to ensuring the safety of all students and staff by continuing to effectively implement key health mitigation strategies.
