  • Due to Norfolk Public Schools being placed on  no extracurricular or afterschool activities mandate all Specialty Programs follow-up interviews, auditions, essays and testing are postponed until further notice.  Also, due to this postponement it is likely to back up the process and acceptance notification will be delayed.  Continue to monitor the school and/or NPS web page for updates.
