·       Your parents may come up to school on Tuesdays to complete the paperwork, so you can start taking your iPads home.

·       A few reminders about iPads: Outside of the classroom, iPads should always be in backpacks. That includes in the hallway and if you have last lunch in the cafeteria. If your class does not have last lunch, we ask that you leave your backpack with your iPad in the classroom. Teachers will secure classroom doors.

·       Your name should always be on the lock screen of the iPad.

·       The iPads are still the property of the Omaha Public Schools, and any inappropriate behavior, including air dropping, playing music, taking pictures without authorization will be subject to the Code of Conduct. You are responsible for anything on your device.


·       Our attendance goal here at Norris is “Strive for 95.”  That means that each student achieves 95% daily attendance, each student!  We want you here every day and are glad you are here!  We will be recognizing our “Strive for 95” students at the end of each month.

Each Monday, we will recognize students who had one full week of perfect attendance the last week.  Your names will be posted outside the main office, and we will randomly draw 15 students, 5 per grade level, from that list to come to the main office and win a prize.  Keep Striving for 95!


·       Remind school of Dead Times (Schnabel)
