Information Concerning Resources during Teacher Walk Out

Norman Public Schools will be updating the following webpage with information and resources during the teacher walk out. https://www.normanpublicschools.org/Page/2907

State Testing Update

State Testing will begin next week. Here are some helpful hints for testing.


  • Please have student laptops fully charged for testing. We are testing using the Macbooks this year. All students should plan on bringing their charger with them.
  • Cell phones will be stored in the vault this year. If your student would prefer not to store their phones, please do not bring the day of testing. No student is allowed to have a phone during the testing session.
  • Please send a snack for your child when they test.
  • Please make sure that your child has breakfast or can eat breakfast at school.
  • Laptops will stay in classrooms in between testing sessions to help keep them charged for the afternoon session.
