Newberry High School will resume normal schedule on Tuesday, May 24. Additional personnel, including an increased presence of law enforcement will be on site to assist students and staff. “I want to express my personal condolences to the families of the victims during this very difficult time. The Newberry community has been deeply impacted by this weekend’s events, which has led to the loss of four young lives. No parent, friend, teacher is ever prepared to face a tragedy like this. I want to thank the local law enforcement agencies for their work and support and we will continue to work with them to make certain our schools are safe and secure. We have made the decision to have students return to Newberry High School tomorrow to provide them with the support from their school and district family,” Superintendent Alvin Pressley.

Mrs. Marilyn Merchant worked with our students with disabilities for many years and was one of the most amazing women we have ever met. Mrs. Merchant passed away in November of 2020, and we are creating a garden in her memory. We want Marilyn's Memorial Teaching Garden to be a true representation of her character and dedication to Newberry High School. We are now accepting donations to purchase plants, soil, mulch, stones, a bird bath, and a bench. Please do not feel obligated to contribute, but we will be so appreciative of your support. If you would like to donate to Marilyn’s Memorial Teaching Garden, please contact the front office (803.321.2621) or email either Mrs. Sligh or Mrs. O’Shields.
