Distance Learning Announcements
Students and Parents,
If you are having technical issues please contact the MCPS help desk at 352-867-2100 Monday – Friday 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Marion County Public Schools may record online classroom sessions utilizing third-party platforms (Zoom, Google Classroom, etc.). These recordings will only be used for educational purposes and may be shared on other learning platforms. If you do not want your child’s image or identifying information recorded, utilize your device/platform controls to stop the camera feed from your device.
On my website under your course, for example, Pre-Algebra, you can find the details regarding your assignments. Click on that tab and scroll down to see the assignments. If you click on the assignment, it will provide you with more details on how to access that assignment along with what is required. Every Monday, I will be sending out an assignment checklist via email, that list what's on the website. Please review and ensure you know what is expected of you each week. We're off to a great start. Keep pushing!
Distance learning is off to a great start!
I just wanted to let you know what the tentative plan is for supporting our ESE students and meeting their accommodated needs.
Each student has a caseworker who is responsible for their IEP. The casework will be responsible for calling their students weekly.
Please reach out to me if your ESE case worker has not made contact with you by Wednesday, April 8th.
Again, Thanks for your support and understanding during this time of transition.
Hello Parents and Students!
You will need technology such as a computer or tablet to access the online content for distance learning. If you do not have one of these devices, please inform me by email.
Paper Packets are being worked on. I will notify you when they are available. If you are opting for a paper packet, please be advised that you will still have to take a picture of your work and submit via email. This is to ensure the safety of all during this pandemic.
Internet or Wi-fi service is also required. Many of you may have a hotspot on your phone that you can use to connect your computer/tablet to the internet.
The information below was given to me by a collegue. It is a list of companies that may be able to assist you with free or inexpensive internet service. Please check them out, if needed:
- Cox internet - either free if you qualify or very inexpensive right now to help:
- Spectrum - free for two months if you qualify:
Hello Students & Parents!
The district has opted to go to a distance learning platform (virtual) until May 1. Please check HERE for any updates concerning course assignments for your class.
Each student needs to ensure that they know how to access the following platforms. I will be uploading information on how you can access the following platforms.
-Mrs. Norman's teacher website (You're Here!)

Please send me a direct email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or concerns regarding your students progress.
My office Hours:These are the times that I am available to chat with parents and students via email, phone, or video chat.
I ask that you please be patient with not only myself but all teachers as we navigate through the changes to the learning environment.

Update: Students have 5 days from date posted to complete the assignments listed. Therefore the due date for the work listed below is 4/7. I have broken the assignments down by day to help you with pacing but you are more than welcome to complete them at whatever pace you would like as long as it is done by the due date of 4/7.
***Videos are also available for you to watch if you are still having a hard time understanding the concept. Please watch the videos and add important information to your notes so that you can refer back to this information. These videos are located in your Google Classroom, under the classroom stream.
