Completely In Person Learning Returns April 5th, 2021


Dear Prairie Norton Parents,

In your mailbox should be a letter from our central office informing families about “All In” learning beginning April 5th after Spring Break. Be assured that the staff at PNES have been preparing for weeks, and plans are under way to return safely. Here are some key points I’d like to highlight for next week and the first week back "All-In".

As we prepare our building for this transition:

  • “Green Group” has school on Wednesday March 24.

  • “Green Group” students will NOT have school on Thursday, March 25 to allow for the building transition.

  • Students riding a school bus will follow their current bus schedule and must wear their masks at all times while on the bus.

  • Expect some longer car lines, and think about adjusting your arrival time to a bit later if you find yourself waiting on Norton Road for long.

  • Parent events that are smaller in size may be allowable, like our Kindergarten Parent Information Nights, but there are still some restrictions for larger events that use our auditorium, and gym.

  • We will continue to layer our safety protocols in the classrooms in the building, including the current visitor and volunteer procedures.

Mike Gosztyla

Principal Prairie Norton Elementary
