Norris Middle School is continuing in our renovation. The existing south wing of the building was finished at the start of school. In December, the middle wing above the main office will be ready for classes, and the north wing (nearest to Marinda St.) will begin renovation. Teachers and classroom spaces will be moved at this time. Student schedules will note the new classroom locations when students return in January. The student drop-off and pick-up will continue to be on Marinda St until further notice.

In addition, the new south addition is currently in construction and should be completed in March, 2018. The gym is set to receive new bleachers over winter break, and the new construction outside the old auditorium is well under way.

Students are doing a great job of carrying their backpacks with their belongings as they work without lockers this year. The split passing periods have helped to alleviate congestion in the hallways as well, and we notice very few tardies.

Please don't hesitate to contact the main office at 531-299-2500 if you have any questions!

****************************************************************

La renovación en la Escuela Secundaria Norris continúa. La existente sección sur del edificio quedó terminada al comenzar la escuela. En diciembre, la mitad de la sección de arriba de la oficina principal estará lista para las clases, y comenzará la renovación de la sección norte (cerca de la calle Marinda). Los salones de clases y los maestros serán movidos en este momento. Los estudiantes notarán las nuevas ubicaciones de los salones de clases cuando regresen a la escuela en enero. El lugar de dejar y recoger a los estudiantes continuará siendo en la calle Marinda hasta nuevo aviso.

Además, la nueva adición del lado sur está actualmente en construcción y será terminada en marzo del 2018. El gimnasio está listo para recibir las nuevas gradas para el descanso de invierno, y la nueva construcción en el exterior del antiguo auditorio ya está en marcha.

Los estudiantes están haciendo muy buen trabajo en estar llevando sus pertenencias en sus mochilas ya que no tendrán casilleros este año. Los periodos de cambios de clase divididos han ayudado aliviar la congestión en los pasillos, hemos notado menos tardanzas.

Si tiene preguntar, por favor no dude en contactarse a la oficina principal al 531-299-2500.
