Newport Special School District, the Newport Police Department and the Jackson County Sheriff's Office work together on a daily basis to keep our students and staff safe.
The Little Rock FBI office received a report indicating a school shooting may occur in Kentucky and Arkansas during the upcoming week. The reporting party lives in another country and the information could not be confirmed. This information was provided for general awareness. While this is not specific to our school district, Newport Special School District is taking the report seriously.
Our District, in conjunction with the Newport Police Department and the Jackson County Sheriff's Office have a plan in place. We will have multiple police officers on our campuses and in the buildings throughout each day of the week. We will take all necessary steps to protect your children and our staff.
