Inclement Weather Policy

Students & Staff:

The Superintendent and his staff will evaluate weather and road conditions prior to 5:00 a.m. All staff & student homes will receive an alert via the School Messenger Alert System, as well as a message posted on our web home page at www.newportwildcats.org if there is a delay in the start of the school day or if the district is closing.

Newport Schools participates in the School Closing Wire. The following radio and television stations announce school closing information by districts as reported from our office. Parents are urged to listen for Newport Independent Schools or the identification number 2480. If our district is not identified, our schools will be operating on a regular schedule.

In case of school delays or closings due to weather, a School Messenger call will go out to every student in the district. Please be sure your child’s school office has accurate phone information to insure you receive these calls.  

The district website, www.newportwildcats.org, will be updated as quickly as possible. In the event that you do not receive an Instant Alert message, please do not call the schools or central office.
