NIS Transitioning to new e-mail Servers

Attention:

Newport Independent Schools will be transitioning to new e-mail servers beginning Thursday, April 19 at 4:30 PM. As part of a statewide initiative, waves of approximately 20 districts are undergoing this process every week until every district in the state is completed. This is our week.

The move is expected to be completed by the following Monday, April 23. During this window, the district (all staff and students) will not have access or be able to communicate via e-mail. However, any messages sent to district staff during this time will be saved in a queue and delivered once our service is restored.

 We apologize for any inconvenience and delay in responding to you. Please call your child’s school for any time-sensitive matters during this window.

 Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Following the recent tragedy at Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida, I want to reiterate the importance of safety in Newport Independent Schools. As a father of two children who attended public schools, the safety and security of all of our students, staff, and schools are my top priority.
