Dress Code Reminders:

Burleson ISD has standard dress at every elementary. A copy of the "Standardized Dress Guidelines" may be found at the following:

We are noticing that students are not wearing the appropriate type of shirt under their sweatshirts. If the student gets hot and they take the sweatshirt off, they are then out of dress code.

Socks and leggings with skirts and shorts are allowed, but they must be solid and in colors of navy, red, white, or black--no patterns.

Pants, skorts, skirts, shorts, and capris- can be docker style (no denim, jean styles, corduroy, painter/cargo style, or knit stretch).

Students will be released at 11:45, buses will run at release time. Pre-K will be a combined class from 7:45-10:45. ASP will operate as usual.

Important Reminders

Help us Terminate Tardies

Morning arrival should occur by 7:30 to ensure a hot breakfast and no tardies (a school goal for Norwood!!!). Three tardies equal one unexcused absence.

School Attendance

School attendance laws require students to attend 90% of the school year. Any student with 10 or more absences (excused or unexcused) will be reviewed by our Norwood attendance committee to ensure that make up time is not needed. Tardies add up to unexcused absences, three tardies make an absence.

Make up time for absences will be before and after school. If it is determined that a student must make up time, the family will be notified of the amount of time that must be made up for the student to receive credit for the year.
