    March 1st-5th, M.E. Norman Elementary participated in Read Across America. These students read nightly for 20 minutes Monday-Friday and were rewarded by the school librarian Mrs. Kendra Thomas with an ice cream treat to enjoy on the beautiful sunny day for realizing “Reading Rocks” and to celebrate their accomplishments anywhere they are. 

    Students in Mrs. Lori Jo Case’s 4th grade ELA class dressed up to coincide with the novel they are currently reading, Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief. Students represented characters such as Medusa and Camp Half Blood campers from the novel.

  • Every Child Counts 2020 Census

    Posted by M. E. Norman Web Administrator on 9/24/2020 8:00:00 PM

    Every home has received an invitation to participate in the 2020 Census. Louisiana’s self-response rate is just under 57 percent, which is below the national average. There are a number of parishes where the rate is in the 30s and 20s. Please consider using your system’s communications channels to encourage employees, families and other stakeholders to complete the 2020 Census.


    The 2020 Census count impacts the federal funds that communities receive each year for programs and services that are critical for schools, students and younger children, such as:

    ·     Special education, Head Start, after-school programs, and classroom technology

    ·     Food assistance, including free and reduced-price school lunches

    ·     Maternal and child health programs

    ·     Planning, preparedness and recovery efforts for national emergencies, including COVID-19


    Self-responses, which can be completed online, by phone or by mail until September 30, ensures federal funding to support Louisiana students.


    The Department encourages school systems to explore the 2020 Census Toolbox to find general resources and activities specially designed to be engaging and appropriate for each grade level, from counting for kindergarteners to examining career statistics for high schoolers.

  • Your Child's Safety is Important to Us

    Posted by M. E. Norman Elementary on 8/13/2020 9:30:00 PM

    M. E. Norman Parents/Guardians,

    Listed below are some of the precautions and procedures we are implementing to help maintain the safety of our students and faculty:

    1. Students entering the building will go straight to the cafeteria to wash their hands, pick up their breakfast, and then head to their classroom where their temperature will be taken.

    2. Students with a temperature of 100.4 or above will be removed from class and placed in a designated area. Parents will be called and must pick up the child.

    3. Students’ desks will be 4-6 ft. apart (to the extent possible) based on CDC recommendations.

    4. Students in grades PreK-2 are not required to wear a mask but may do so as their choice. (school appropriate)

    5. Students in grades 3rd-5th must wear a mask. Students will receive a mask from the school but may wear their own mask (school appropriate). We will have mask breaks throughout the day during P.E., recess, and lunch. Students will be 4-6ft apart during the mask breaks. (to the extent possible).

    6. All students will receive a water bottle with their name. We will have a water filling station student may use as needed. Students may also bring a clear, sealed bottle of water to school. (Please label with the student’s name.) Only water is allowed in the bottle. Water fountains have been turned off.

    7. Students will wash their hands more often throughout the day with soap and water before breakfast, before/after lunch, after recess, when exiting the restroom, and as needed based upon student activities.

    8. Lunch schedules have been spread out to accommodate only a few classes at a time. Classes will be separated by distance and partitions. Some classes will eat in the cafeteria and some will eat in their classrooms.

    9. Recess has been changed to accommodate fewer students on the playground. Areas are designated for classes, and they will not be able to play on the playground equipment or mix with any other class.

    10. Hallway floor markers are being used to direct the flow of traffic so that students will remain in a straight line staying 4-6 ft apart (to the extent possible). Students will use this movement pattern for all transitions between classes, lunch, recess, dismissal, etc.

    11. Students will have P.E. They will have activities that do not allow them to touch each other.

    12. Buses will be at half capacity and may have to run two loads when needed. We encourage parents to drop-off students, if possible, to avoid the number of students on the bus.

    13. Students will be dismissed in groups by bus number, car riders, walkers, bike riders, and aftercare. Each group has a designated area that is monitored by faculty.

    14. During transition periods teachers will clean student’s desks and chairs.

    15. Several times during the day, custodians will clean light switches, door handles, restrooms and any surface that is touched frequently by students and faculty.

    16. Parents and visitors are required to wear a mask and use the buzzer system to communicate with office staff. Parents and visitors are only allowed in the front waiting area. Parents and visitors will not be allowed in the main building at this time.

    If you have any questions or concerns you may contact the school office 9

  • Scammers Cash in during the COVID Pandemic

    Posted by Lee Ann Hepler on 3/24/2021 12:00:00 PM

    It has been over a year since COVID-19 made its first appearance in our area. In response to the virus, we have adapted to new daily routines to help stay safe and healthykeep your distance, wear a mask, and wash your handsA few months ago, several vaccines became available, and the scammers of the world saw an opportunity. Because of these quick-thinking scammers, our new daily routines should also include keeping a watchful eye on our bank accounts and personal information and making smart decision when it comes to sharing personal information.  


    Man holding laptop.  “Fraudsters are always looking to take advantage of significant world events. The COVID-19 pandemic and its corresponding rapid digital acceleration brought about by stay-at-home orders is a global event unrivaled in the online age,” said Shai Cohen, senior vice president of Global Fraud Solutions at TransUnion 


    According to Colleen Tressler, the scammers’ newest attempt to swindle your personal information involves sending phony vaccine surveys. Ms. Tressler is with the FTC’s Division of Consumer and Business Education and in her article, she states that these opportunistic scammers are sending emails and text messages with links to surveys. These surveys appear to be legitimate, but it is all an elaborate ruse to steal your personal data. Her advice to avoid being scammed is simple 

    • Do not click on any links or open attachments.  
    • Do not call or use the number in the email or text.  
    • Do not give out your banking account, credit card, or personal information.  
    • Report scams to the FTC at ReportFraud.ftc.gov.  

    In the same way that we are vigilant in protecting our health, we must also be vigilant in protecting our financial and personal information. Just like viruses, scammers are out there looking for a weak spot to capitalize on – inoculate yourself against these scammers by keeping your information private.
