Safe Continuation of In-Person Instruction and Continuity of Service Plan

The recently passed American Rescue Plan (ARP) provides substantial federal resources to support states and local school districts. As a result, local school districts are required to develop a plan that details the safe return to in-person instruction and ensures the continuity of services. This plan is accessible to our stakeholders, and will be monitored and revised as necessary based on ongoing review through September 30, 2023.

Missed One Call Messages From Newton School - How to Retrieve

Newton Schools uses One Call Now to notify parents and students of important information.  On occasion you may miss the call and wish to hear the message again.  DO NOT CALL THE SCHOOL instead follow the instructions below:
  1. Call toll-free (877) 698-3261.
  2. When prompted by the system, press 1 to listen to the most recent message sent to you.
  3. Enter your telephone number. You must enter the telephone number that One Call Now calls for delays, cancellations, and announcements.
