    A NOTE FOR BLENDED STUDENTS AND THEIR PARENTS

    Blended Students On Campus and Supervision

    Blended students should remain off campus or at home during the classes they are not enrolled as in person students. Blended students are not allowed to remain in the parking lot in or out of a car during the school day for safety and supervision reasons. A few students have transportation challenges and need to be on campus for a time before or after their in person class.

    Starting immediately all blended students If on campus while not enrolled in a class a blended student will

    • Sign in with Ms. Brown in Student Services.

    • Pick up a numbered badge and keep it visible

    • Remain in the College and Career area while on campus

    • Return the numbered badge and sign out when leaving campus or attending an in person class.

    Again, this is the exception and not the norm for blended students to be on campus while not enrolled.

    RETURN OF MACBOOKS AND HOTSPOTS

    In addition to textbooks and library books all seniors are expected to turn in their NPS assigned computer and charger. If you were assigned a hotspot that will also need to be turned in with any other NPS assigned items.

    Seniors and any students leaving the district can turn in the NPS assigned items starting Monday May 24th at the tech bar daily until 3 and in rooms 702/3 from 3-5 pm. Thursday May 27th there will be a curbside drop off at the College and Career entrance from 1-5 pm. If none of those times work students can make arrangements to bring items in at another time.


    If you are going to be needing the NPS assigned device after the drop off date for further classes with Norman Public Schools please fill out this form: Late turn in form

    Any laptops not turned in by 5 pm on May 27th and not confirmed as part of the Late Turn In form may be disabled.

    As you prepare to return the NPS assigned Macbook, there may be items in Drive and Gmail that need to be retained. Please plan on copying these items out of email and/or Drive, as student accounts are scheduled to be inactivated thirty (30) days after students leave the district. Google has an app designed for this at takeout.google.com. If you need assistance with this, please contact the NHS helpdesk by email at NHS-itech-help@norman.k12.ok.us .

    If there is a case on the assigned Macbook and that needs to be kept please remove it before turning it in; if you don't want the case we will remove it and reuse it for students who can’t buy themselves a case.

    If you are interested in purchasing a Macbook like the one students have used this year (13” Macbook Air, 1.6 GHz Intel Core i5 processor, 128GB Storage, 8 MB Ram) NPS has worked with our partners at Apple to get educational pricing for NPS families for comparable Macbooks. Use this link https://www.apple.com/us-hed/shop for that option. The current assigned macbooks are not available for purchase.

    ACCEPTING DONATED CAPS AND GOWNS

    Several 2021 NHS Seniors will find it difficult to purchase a cap and gown this year. If you have a cap and gown from a former NHS senior, please consider donating it. Due to Covid, we ask that you please seal them in a large zipper bag so they can be safely transported directly to the dry cleaners. If you are willing to have your set dry cleaned yourself, that would be even better! Thank you in advance for your help in making this happen for our Seniors!

    Please contact Brenda Wilkins (bwilkins@norman.k12.ok.us) if you have any questions.
