Reminder - Updated Masking Policy Now In Effect

At the April meeting of the Joint Executive Governing Board, an update to the district's Safe Return to School Plan was approved. This includes the district moving to masks recommended for students and staff. The change went into effect Monday, April 18. Masks will continue to be required on school buses.


We understand that there are personal reasons why an individual would choose to continue wearing a mask, and everyone will still have the opportunity to do so.


As we have throughout the pandemic, Normandy will continue to consult with local public health experts and follow the recommendations of the CDC to guide our safety mitigation practices. The updated guidelines can be found on our website, www.normandysc.org/BeSafeNormandy.

Normandy High School Student Honored for Heroic Act

A split-second decision saved a young boy’s life and earned a Normandy High School student recognition for his heroic actions. Senior Jamari Walker was honored by Do The Right Thing of Greater St. Louis Inc., a non-profit organization that recognizes and promotes the positive behaviors of youth in the region.


According to Walker, on the morning of March 25, he was walking to his bus stop when he saw a boy walking in the middle of the street unaware of his surroundings. Walker said that’s when he realized a truck was quickly approaching. He noticed the boy wasn’t moving out of the way, so he sprinted toward him and moved the child out of the path of the moving truck. Luckily, neither he nor the boy were injured.
