NPS School Closing/COVID-19 Update

Dear Newton South Families,

In light of the rapid changing COVID-19 situation, all Newton Public Schools will be closed this week and possibly for a longer period. As noted by latest update from NPS, As a reminder, the decision to close schools is an attempt to slow the spread of the virus. It will only be effective if the community also takes steps to practice self-isolation, monitor for any symptoms, and avoid large gatherings.” Please see details of the Letter from the Superintendent, March 13, 2020.
