The Secretary of Education and the Arkansas Department of Health have recommend that schools continue to wear masks through the remainder of the school year. Newport Special School District will continue to wear our masks until the end of the 2020-2021 school year. We have been very fortunate not to experience the on-going spread of COVID and are thankful to our staff, parents and guardians for making sure we are following our established protocols. The district will discontinue the taking of temperatures three times a day but will keep in place our plan for mask usage, lunch procedures, cleaning procedures and the limited access to our buildings from outside sources. We will also continue to monitor students showing any signs and follow our nursing protocols.
Also please remember there are no longer virtual Fridays. Thank you all for your continued support and cooperation.
