    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.

    SENIOR INFORMATION:

    GRADUATION PRODUCTS DELIVERY DATES

    Cap & Gown delivery: Wednesday, April 7 @ 10:00 – 1:00 (Also make up delivery for Grad Products.)

    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.
