Inclement Weather Procedures
Staff, Students, and Parents/Guardians:
When inclement weather occurs, 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.
