COVID CASE REPORTING BUTTON AT TOP OF WEBPAGE
Norfolk Public Schools’ Parents and Guardians.
There is now a button on each school’s webpage that makes reporting COVID cases/exposures easy for you. At the top, and in the center of each schools’ homepage, there is a button with the words “COVID CASE REPORTING.” The button is also located within the icon bar underneath the picture rotator on each schools’ homepage. Clicking either button will pull up the reporting form that you will need to fill out and submit to your child’s school.
Since the fall of 2020, NPS has provided an online COVID dashboard on the division’s homepage. The dashboard is updated daily by 5:30 p.m. and reflects the most current data available based on contact tracing from the previous 24 hours. Cases may take 2-3 days to appear on the dashboard due to confirmation processes.
We appreciate your understanding as we continue to follow health and safety guidelines from the Virginia Department of Health and the CDC while providing in-person instruction to our students.
Padres y tutores de las Escuelas Públicas de Norfolk.
Ahora hay un botón en la página web de cada escuela que facilita la notificación de casos / exposiciones de COVID. En la parte superior, y en el centro de la página de inicio de cada escuela, hay un botón con las palabras "REPORTE DE CASOS COVIDOS". El botón también se encuentra dentro de la barra de iconos debajo del rotador de imágenes en la página de inicio de cada escuela. Al hacer clic en cualquiera de los botones, aparecerá el formulario de informe que deberá completar y enviar a la escuela de su hijo.
Desde el otoño de 2020, NPS ha proporcionado un panel de COVID en línea en la página de inicio de la división. El tablero se actualiza diariamente a las 5:30 p.m. y refleja los datos más actualizados disponibles basados en el rastreo de contactos de las 24 horas anteriores. Los casos pueden tardar entre 2 y 3 días en aparecer en el panel debido a los procesos de confirmación.
Apreciamos su comprensión mientras continuamos siguiendo las pautas de salud y seguridad del Departamento de Salud de Virginia y los CDC mientras brindamos instrucción en persona a nuestros estudiantes.
¡Mantenerse a salvo!

Karma Johnson, a rising senior at Maury, is the newly elected Student Representative for the school board of Norfolk and is ready to make her mark! This aspiring artist, fashion icon, and philanthropist is not your average student! She currently attends the Governors School for the Arts and wants to use her art to make important statements just like platinum music star Pharrell Williams, one of her biggest inspirations.
Her goal as school board representative is to make sure students' concerns get heard and sure they feel that they matter. She also would like Norfolk Public Schools to invest more in the arts, promote mental health awareness amongst students, and encourage attending college after high school.
She is currently interested in programs at Brown University, Rhode Island School of Design, Parsons School of Design, Columbia University in the City of New York, and New York University. She acknowledges that her interests are always subject to change.
Karma writes, "Wherever I go, I want to feel welcomed and appreciated for the original ideas I will surely bring to the table. I have always wanted to change the world, and this honor of being selected feels like one of many big first steps that I’m ready to take."
Congratulations on your outstanding accomplishment! Your Maury family is so proud of you!
