The Wi-Fi hotspots and chargers need to be turned back into NHS before the last day of school, Thursday, June 10. Please be sure to label your hotspot with your child's name and return it and the charger to Ms. Senn in the front office.

Free Bark Jr - Bark for Schools Bark Jr allows parents to manage screen time, filter which websites their kids can visit, and keep up with kids by using location check-in. It's just another way that Bark is closing the gap in online safety for kids while allowing them the space they need to develop into good digital citizens. NOTE: This program is not to be installed on school devices.
The School District of Newberry County will begin collecting Consent Forms to Opt Out of Face Mask Requirement Imposed on Students by a School or School District on Friday, May 14. The form must be completed in its entirety and should be returned to the school between Friday, May 14 and Friday, May 21. Once approved by the school, this form allows students to go mask-free in the school building. Face coverings will continue to be required on all school buses. Students who exhibit any symptoms and visit the health room will be issued a mask. Parents are reminded to continue to check your students for any symptoms prior to sending them to school and inform the school nurse if your child is symptomatic. Plexiglass and social distancing measures will remain in place. As students come for state testing that begins on May 17, please be aware that there may be students with and without masks in the classrooms where testing occurs. Parents can access the form at https://scdhec.gov/sites/default/files/Library/D-4286.pdf
The School District of Newberry County will continue to operate under the present guidelines from South Carolina DHEC and the South Carolina Department of Education regarding face coverings until clarification regarding a waiver is provided. Students and staff are expected to continue to wear face coverings as they have all school year. We will keep parents and families updated as we are provided additional guidance from the South Carolina Department of Education.

Please be reminded that masks with vents/valves are no longer allowed at school and not recommended by CDC. Masks with Exhalation Valves or Vents The purpose of masks is to keep respiratory droplets from reaching others to aid with source control. Masks with one-way valves or vents allow exhaled air to be expelled out through holes in the material. This can allow exhaled respiratory droplets to reach others and potentially spread the COVID-19 virus. Therefore, CDC does not recommend using masks if they have an exhalation valve or vent.
