This week’s news (Aug 30):

🦅If you are interested in the covid-19 cases in our schools, visit the district COVID dashboard,

https://www.newberry.k12.sc.us/page/covid-dashboard-2021-2022

🦅We are doing everything we know how to keep students and staff safe by
strongly recommending the use of masks, social distancing, and by
washing hands consistently throughout the day.  This virus is very
contagious so it’s important that you have this same
conversation with your children daily.  Remember to follow these safety
precautions everywhere your child goes outside of school as well.

🦅Parents, the deadline for paying the technology fee is Friday,
September 3. You may pay online by going to our school webpage. Click on
Pay School Fees. The option will come up for you to select Pay for
Technology. The fee is $25 per student. You may also
send it with your child to school.

🦅Parents please make sure your child brings their charged device with them to school every day.

🦅Any change in transportation, must be done by writing a note in the
child’s agenda or hand delivery in car rider line or to office.

🦅Students should not be picked up after 2:10pm. Calling classrooms is
disruptive and may lead to safety errors, so any early pick-ups must be
done BEFORE 2:10pm.

🦅Please screen your child daily to make sure they are not sick. If they
display 2 or more symptoms you will be asked to pick them up from
school and may return with a negative covid test or the evaluation of a
doctor.

🦅Remember to send water bottles with your children. Only water should be placed inside the bottle.
