Winter recess reminder

During the winter months we try to take the students outside for recess as much as possible. Be sure that your child has a heavy winter coat, hat and gloves everyday in case we do get to go outside. If the temperature with the wind chill is 20 degrees or below, they do not go outside.

Absence reminder

Remember that if your child is absent, you must send in a note when the child returns to school explaining why the child was absent. If you do not send in a note the absence is marked as unexcused.

This is in addition to calling your child off school. Calling your child off school just lets us know that you are aware that your child is not in school for the purposes of ensuring your child's safety.

Further information regarding absences can be found in the East School Student Handbook

Snowy weather

Newcomerstown Schools will use the automated parent notification system and local radio announcements in the event of school cancellation due to weather.

If your telephone number has changed recently, make sure to notify the school office so you will be sure to receive a call.
