Fake memo about Norfolk Public Schools circulating on social media

NORFOLK, Va. (WVEC) -- Norfolk Public Schools are warning concerned parents about a fake memo that has been circulating social media. 

The fake memo claims to be about changes in the safety related policies for the 2017-2018 school year. It states that the changes will go into effect on October 10, 2017. 

Some of the fake changes include, forced legal curfew for students under 18, a yearly fee of $250 per student to help make the schools safer, and random home inspections.

The public school system says they did not hand out this letter to students or parents, nor did they give anyone authorization to distribute the letters on their behalf. 

According to Norfolk Public Schools, the logo used on the fake memo is not the official NPS logo. They would like to remind parents that any NPS memos will be sent home with students and never posted on social media. 

Parents who received the memo should disregard it. 

NPS is taking the mater seriously and asking that anyone who knows who created this fake memo to call the Office of Communications at tellus@nps.k12.va.us or (757) 628-3459.
