Dear PTELC Parents & Guardians,

As you know, the coronavirus pandemic continues to be rapidly evolving.  As of March 19, there are no confirmed cases of coronavirus in San Miguel County or in the Norwood Public Schools.  We are following the guidance of the San Miguel County Department of Public Health and as a precaution (you can read it HERE) of "Prohibition of all events at daycare centers, child care centers, home child care center, private schools and day schools..."   Yesterday the Colorado's governor signed an executive order on Wednesday suspending in-person learning in public and private schools across the state from March 23 to April 17.  He also issued a public health order prohibiting gatherings of 10 or more people. 

Prime Time is taking these actions seriously and will be closed until April 17, 2020.  We will re-open our doors on Monday, April 20, 2020 unless there are new developing cases in the next few weeks.  Please check your emails and our Facebook page for any new updates. 

We thank you for your continued support and we hope you and your family are staying healthy and enjoying this time being together.  If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to email, call or txt!

Dear Norwood School District Community,

Yesterday, Governor Polis issued executive orders to close all public and provide schools from March 23rd to April 17th. This means that NPS will continue our home based, online learning after spring break through  April 17th.  In conjunction with this order, effective today, San Miguel County has asked all residents to shelter in place until at least April 3rd and leave their homes only for essential needs, like food and medicine, therefore our school facilities, including grounds, are closed to the public. Lastly, thanks to our amazing Food Services Director, Leslie Stropko, as well as Deb Bockrath, who with the help of Maggie’s Pizza, will be providing free breakfast and lunch to all students beginning today. Grab and go meals will be available at Maggie’s Pizza from 11-3pm Tuesday - Friday. The meals will include breakfast and lunch with a limit of one per student per day.  Please call Maggie’s directly should your child need delivery, (970) 327-0303 or if you have questions. Grab and go meals will be available on Mondays from 11am to noon at the school on Summit street through curbside pick up. All meals will continue through our regularly scheduled spring break and the school closure dates.

We thank you for your continued patience and support through this trying time.  Know that we miss seeing the faces of your children each day but will continue to support them from afar.
