NCSS School Closure Update 3/16/20
Posted on 03/16/2020

As a result of the recent confirmation of a COVID-19 diagnosis in our school system, all Newton County Schools will be closed for at least 10 school days. At this time, our projected reopen date is tentatively scheduled for Monday, March 30. School district officials will reevaluate our school status on Thursday, March 26 and notify parents and employees via School Messenger if the need arises to remain closed for additional days. 

During this time-period, the Newton County Board of Education building will be closed to the general public; however, some personnel will continue to work to ensure the daily business of the school system continues. Stakeholders may reach central office employees via phone and email during this time.

All schools are posting instructional learning information and opportunities on their school websites and social media sites so please have your children check them daily for updates. We have also created a section on our school system website that is dedicated to COVID-19 information. You can reach it through our homepage We will continually post updates so be sure to check back often. 

Should new information become available that directly impacts our students and employees we will reach out to you through School Messenger and also post the information on our website and social media channels. We thank you for your cooperation during this unprecedented time and as always we thank you for your continued support of Newton County Schools.
