Good afternoon Red Devil Family!

For students who have Internet access, remote learning will take place online. Thanks to the K-64 Chromebook partnership, all middle school students have a Chromebook to use at home. Your child’s teacher will contact each family regarding how students will access online content. If students do not have online access, instructional materials can be picked up at the school or may be delivered by bus on Fridays. Teachers will also have office hours. During office hours, they will be available for questions or individual student support.

Please contact the main office if you need instructional materials delivered to your child.

For those that are still needing to pick up Chromebooks and or band instruments, you may stop by the school on Wednesday from 8 am- 11am, and from 1 pm-6pm.

Newton-Conover City Schools will provide meals for students during the days that schools are closed due to the current coronavirus situation.

Each elementary school in our district (North Newton, Shuford and South Newton) will be a distribution site. If your child attends the middle or high schools they will be provided meals through the elementary school district in which they live.

You may choose to have the meals delivered or you may drive to the elementary school site and pick up the meals. Students will be provided a breakfast and a dinner meal to be delivered at the same time.

The first day meals will be provided will be Thursday March 19th. If you would like to receive meals please respond to the link below or call the child nutrition department at 828-464-3191.
