Newport Independent Schools

NEWPORT – Newport’s Food Service workers – who are viewed by many as valuable but often unsung heroes of the COVID-19 pandemic – were formally honored Wednesday by The Kentucky House of Representatives. 

During Wednesday night’s Newport Board of Education meeting, each worker was presented an official Kentucky House of Representatives Certificate of Appreciation from State Rep. Rachel Roberts of Newport. The certificates were signed by Rep. Roberts as well as by Speaker of the House David Osborne.  

“Thank you for ensuring that Newport students and families were provided enough food to feed their families every day of the week during this difficult time,” The Certification of Appreciation says. “You were truly on the front lines, and your dedication and commitment to the community is worth recognition.” 

The certificates were presented to Newport High School Food Service Manager Stephanie Atkins, Newport Intermediate School Food Service Manager Holley Clark and Newport Primary School Food Service Manager Kim Guffey along with the following Food Service workers: Alda Lane, Tara Tucker, Taylor Gross, Jalene Hoskins, Paul Juan McDay, Pam Underwood, Marcella Goff, Lisa Fulmer, Maria Palmisano, Melonie Bennett, Donna Shively, Becky Mueller, Brittani Atkins, Lynnzee Browning, Jessica Bartel and Lenora Mocciola.

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.
