Winter Weather Closing Information

posted Jan 26, 2015, 10:55 AM by Mark Pizzi   [ updated Jan 26, 2015, 10:55 AM ]

Dear Parents,

Due to the impending winter storm forecast, calling for high winds and significant snow accumulations, the Norfolk Public Schools and offices will be closed on Tuesday, January 27,2015.  Governor Baker has declared a State of Emergency and placed a ban on travel beginning tonight at midnight with the exception of emergency medical and transportation employees.  The Norfolk Police are asking families to make sure all vehicles are off the roads and that cars are pulled at least 10 feet into the driveway so that they are out of the way of plows.  The town will be sending a message out to Norfolk Residents with additional safety information.  All evening events for the Norfolk Public Schools for Monday night, Jan. 26th have been cancelled.  Please stay safe through the storm.  We will inform you of any additional delays or closings for Wednesday, Jan. 28th as information becomes available.  

Thank you.

Dear Parents,

Please be advised that the Medfield police received a report 
yesterday from a parent that a white SUV (possibly a Jeep Grand Cherokee) approached two students at their bus stop on Pueblo Street. The driver was male with dark hair. The driver asked the children for directions to the nearest McDonalds.  When the parent walked out of her house and called to her children, the driver promptly drove away. As this incident was very similar in nature to the incident that occurred in Norfolk on December 1st, I wanted to make you all aware. I have asked the principals at both the H. Olive Day School and the Freeman-Kennedy School to have all teachers review with students some basic safety principals and the importance of not talking to strangers or approaching unfamiliar cars. I would strongly encourage you to talk with your children tonight to reinforce this important message. The Norfolk Police Department and the Medfield Police Department are both aware of the two similar incidents. As always, student safety is our first priority. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact my office.

Sincerely,

Dr. Ingrid N. Allardi
Superintendent

Norfolk Public Schools
Parent Leaders

Who are the Parent Leaders?

The Parent Leaders Committee is comprised of a group of parents who have students in the Norfolk Public Schools and are interested in working collaboratively with the district to problem solve issues, discuss educational programming and support efforts towards continuous improvement. 

What is the time commitment?
The Parent Leaders group meets one evening a month for approximately 1-2 hours. it is an open meeting and anyone can attend. We are looking for members who are able to commit to attending on a fairly regular basis, although it is not required to attend every meeting. We are often working on long-term projects and it is helpful to have some continuity of membership.

What kinds of topics do the Parent Leaders discuss?
Parent Leaders focus primarily on District Level issues (policies, school budget, school calendar, curriculum, parent involvement.) Last year this group was instrumental in helping identity key resources and information to include on the new district website. In addition, the group provided feedback and input into the district strategic plan and will be working this year on developing a parent survey. There is always time at the end of each meeting for new topics to be introduced or items added to the next agenda. 

What is the mission of the Parent Leaders Group?
The mission of the Parent Leaders Group is "To create a forum for open, positive, respectful dialog between District Administration and parents aimed at improving and enhancing the educational experience of all students and their families."

First meeting: Monday, October 6th at 7:00 in the Freeman-Kennedy School Superintendent's Conference Room. For more information, please contact Pam Kinahan at 508-528-1225.

Welcome back to an exciting new school year!  We have many wonderful things going on around the district that I look forward to sharing with you.  Over the summer the Norfolk Public Schools welcomed many new staff members to our team.  We also began preparations for the implementation of our new hands-on, inquiry based science curriculum and released to the public a new three year District Improvement Plan!

Sincerely,

Dr. Ingrid N. Allardi
