With the potential for our area to be impacted by the effects Hurricane Joaquin the City of Newport would like to take this opportunity to inform or remind residents of their ability to enroll in the City’s Mass Notification System, Code Red.

Would you please take two minutes to answer this very short survey on how you feel about changing the school start times for September 2016? This request to give feedback is being sent to you because you have a child at one or more of our schools or you are an employee that works in our district. Research has shown that our older children need more hours of sleep while they are in high school. In an effort to address the best learning opportunities for our students, the Newport School Committee is considering making time changes for all schools to pilot this. The high school would change by 45 minutes and the other schools would change by 15 minutes. The Newport School Committee has held public workshops and meetings in the past few months to see how parents feel about this. Now we would like to hear from you in a survey. The new start and end times would be: TMS 7:45-2:15 RHS 8:15-2:45 PES 8:45-3:15.
The Newport Area Career and Technical Center (NACTC) kicks-off an informational campaign designed to inform the public about the different types of educational opportunities that are available to high school students and highlight the fact that all students in Newport and the surrounding districts have the right to attend NACTC at no additional cost to families.
