Transportation Requests

Transportation

Newport Schools will be returning to in person classes utilizing our Hybrid Plan on September 29th. Therefore, we will begin taking transportation requests starting Wednesday, September 16, 2020. This year we are asking you to complete the online transportation request form. You will need to complete a form for each child in your household. This will allow us to be more efficient as we move forward. All requests will be taken in the order they are received online. It is important for you to provide accurate addresses and contact information.

Transportation Request Form

Due to COVID-19 we will have fewer seats available on the buses. Therefore, you will probably notice some changes to our procedures. All buses will be loading from the back to the front and unloading from the front to the back. Please remember all riders will be required to wear a face mask or covering.

If you have any questions please contact Kathi Baldwin at 859-292-3001.

Counseling and Mental Health Services

nA significant obstacle for student’s academic growth at times is the unmet need for social and emotional development that may require specialized services. Our children's mental health  is especially vulnerable during this time of virtual and hybrid learning.  Newport Independent Schools offer three different layers for overall student social and emotional development in addition to the learning in the classroom setting.

STATEMENT FROM NEWPORT INDEPENDENT SCHOOLS SUPERINTENDENT TONY WATTS ON COVID-19-RELATED SCHOOL REOPENING

In a call yesterday (Aug. 10), Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear made a recommendation to all public school superintendents to delay opening schools to in-person instruction until or after the week of Sept. 28 due to the high number of Kentuckians testing positive for COVID-19, especially among children. 

The governor based his recommendation on four factors:

  1. A high level of total COVID cases and a high positive test rate
  2. An increase in the number of infections among children, both in Kentucky and the nation
  3. Outbreaks already occurring in states that have attempted reopening schools
  4. Families still going on vacations in COVID hotspots, then returning to Kentucky.

Based on Gov. Beshear’s recommendation, unfortunately, we will not begin school with in person instruction. All students will begin school on Aug. 31 doing virtual instruction. We will provide updates on changes as they occur. We thank our students, parents, families, teachers and staff for their patience and understanding through these trying times.
