Norfolk Public Schools

  • Are Norfolk Public Schools closed for the rest of the school year?
    • In alignment with Governor Ralph Northam’s executive order issued on March 23, 2020, all Norfolk Public Schools will be closed through the end of the school year. The Governor indicated that this decision was made to protect the health of all Virginians and minimize the spread of the current Coronavirus disease. Follow NPS’s website for updates.
  • Since Norfolk Public Schools are closed, how can kids get breakfast/lunch?
    • NPS is providing “grab ‘n go” bagged meals available for pick up from the locations listed below. The meal bags contain one complete breakfast and one complete lunch, pre-packed by School Nutrition staff, and will be provided without charge, one per child. Children must be present to receive a meal bag. 
    • Beginning on May 11, NPS will add five more meal distribution sites to the current 12 sites and three locations for school bus deliveries. The new sites are: Crossroads School, Little Creek Primary, Ocean View Elementary, Tanners Creek Elementary, and Tidewater Park Elementary. Also starting on May 11, the meal distribution schedule will change to Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, maintaining the current times of 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. The same amount of food will continue to be distributed, as the meal bags will contain multiple meals to cover Tuesdays and Thursdays as well as the weekends.
