Dear Newport Families,

We hope that this email finds your family well.  This message is to communicate the most current information in our procedures in response to the COVID-19 Pandemic.  We appreciate your patience and flexibility as we adapt and plan with each new challenge this unprecedented situation brings.  Our administrative team is meeting on a daily basis to discuss and review regulations and guidance that are being provided by the state.  At this time, state entities have guided us to forgive the next 10 school days with no make-up expectation.  During this time, free resources for all students are being made available via the Newport District website and social media accounts.  These free resources can be used by families at your discretion. District administration and staff have been preparing and are continuing to plan for flexible methods of future instructional delivery, to be implemented after state clarification of guidelines.

We have submitted an application to the state for approval of our meal delivery plan.  If approved, we will communicate the details of that plan.  We understand that there are still many unanswered questions.  Please remain assured that we will keep the lines of communication open and that we will do our best to provide you with information as we receive it.  Please contact our school nurse Mrs. Forrest Weyandt at fweyandt@newportsd.org if your child has any prescription medication needing to be returned from the nurses office during this period of closure.
