Newberry Elementary shifts to eLearning from January 12-17. This change only affects Newberry Elementary and is due to the percentage of staff who are positive, symptomatic, and/or quarantined for Covid-19. Beginning Wednesday, January 12, Newberry Elementary School will temporarily shift all students from in-person learning to eLearning. There will be no school-related extracurricular or after school activities from January 12 through January 17. This shift to eLearning only applies to Newberry Elementary School. Virtual parent-teacher conference will continue as scheduled on January 13 and 14. This decision was not taken lightly. We recognize that a shift of this nature impacts families and child care, and of course, classroom instruction. However, it has become necessary as we struggle to maintain regular operations due to the percentage of staff at Newberry Elementary School who are positive, symptomatic, and/or quarantined for Covid-19. There is also a growing number of student absences due to Covid-19. It is our goal to resume in-person learning at Newberry Elementary School on Tuesday, January 18. However, we will monitor the numbers and staff availability over the weekend and notify parents and staff no later than Sunday, January 16, if an extension is warranted.

NES is excited to launch out attendance initiative, "Every Student, Every Day!" This initiative is intended to emphasize the impact school attendance can have on a student's academic success starting in preK and continuing through high school. Families play a key role in making sure students get to school safely every day and understand why attendance is so important for success in school and in life. Just 2 missed school days per month, excused or unexcused, has a long-term impact on academic performance in both reading and math and ultimately, on graduation rates. Attendance MATTERS! We have added a new page to our website providing more information about the importance of good attendance. Click here for more information! https://www.newberryes.org/o/nes/page/attendance-every-student-every-day.
