Newport School District



    The PA Department of Health (DOH) has updated the metric to now only require two days of closure to reset the COVID-19 case counts per each building.  All building positive case counts reset each Monday because we do not have school the preceding two days. The school district will notify families via our electronic communication system of positive cases per building.  The PA Department of Health still has the requirement of contact tracing investigation and individuals identified as close contacts will be notified by our school districts Nurse or DOH. Close contact is defined by CDC as anyone who was within 6 feet of an infected person for a total of 15 minutes in a 24 hour period. If a person has not been fully vaccinated they are required to quarantine for up to 14 days from their last day of exposure. Our school environment does not allow for abbreviated  quarantine timelines and state mandated mask  wearing and spacing guidelines must be adhered to.

  • Communication

    The Newport School District places a high level of emphasis on communication. This emphasis lends itself to an environment where students will receive the best possible educational experience. The District encourages continual communication between parents and staff to support every student. In order to effectively address and facilitate discussion regarding questions or concerns about your child’s education, the District would like issues to be routed through certain channels for communication. In the event that a question or concern should arise, please first contact your student’s teacher. From that point, the respective building administrator may become involved to help facilitate discussion on an issue. If the issue is unresolved at either of these levels, it will be elevated to the Superintendent for review. Should the need arise, the issue may be presented before the School Board for additional consideration. The Newport School District strives for continual growth and a goal to always put students first. Thank you for your support. Ryan Neuhard, Superintendent
