Norris Families,

We are very excited about the beginning phases of the bond project at Norris Middle School. During spring recess, McCarthy Construction will begin building new additions on the north side of the building near the auditorium and in the courtyard area. Due to this construction, we will be adjusting our drop-off/pick-up locations for students in the AM and PM. Student drop-off/pick-up will remain on Marinda Street west of 45th Street. Students will then enter or exit through the Northwest doors. Bus drop-off/pick-up will remain on Marinda Street east of 45th Street. Bus riders will enter Norris through the Northeast doors near the band room/pool entrance. All OPS bus riders will exit through the east exits at the conclusion of the school day. The main entrance of Norris Middle School will be relocated to the doors on the West side of the building. This entrance will be a secured entrance and will require you to be buzzed into the building. We will continue to communicate to Norris families throughout the bond project. Omaha Public Schools and Norris Middle School thanks you for your support of the bond program. Please contact the school if you have questions.


Familias de Norris,

Estamos muy emocionados de comenzar con las nuevas fases de construcción del Proyecto en la Escuela Secundaria Norris. Durante el receso de primavera la Constructora McCarthy empezara a construir las nuevas adiciones al lado norte del edificio cerca del auditorio y en el patio. Debido a la construcción ajustaremos el área donde se dejara y recogerá a los estudiantes en la mañana y por la tarde. La zona donde se dejara y recogerá a los estudiantes será donde mismo en las calles Marida y 45. Los estudiantes entraran a Norris a través de las puestas noroeste cerca del salón de banda/entrada de la alberca. Todos los autobuses de OPS saldrán por la salida del lado este al finalizar el día de escuela. La entrada principal de la Escuela Secundaria Norris se trasladara al lado oeste del edificio. Esta entrada será asegurada y se requerirá que toque el timbre para entrar al edificio. Continuaremos informándoles a las familias de Norris los avances de la construcción. Las Escuelas Públicas de Norris y la Escuela Secundaria Norris les quiere agradecer su apoyo al proyecto.
