Attendance Guidance for SY2021-2022

  • Official Download

    Dear NPS Parents/Guardians and Students:

    Student attendance continues to be a priority for Norfolk Public Schools.  We are diligently preparing to engage every student through in-person learning five days a week or through our Virtual Scholars Academy (VSA).   As we continue to navigate the fluctuation of positive COVID-19 cases in our area, you may have questions, and we know we must prepare for days our students’ scheduled instructional time may be interrupted.  Please review the table below to see how students’ daily attendance will be counted for each scenario.
