Calendar Reminder


Remind App for Communication Coming Soon to Newport Ind. Schools!

Newport Independent Schools will be implementing Remind to enhance communication within our district. Remind will allow you to receive messages via the Remind app, the web, or via text message. It will not replace SchoolMessenger at this time, but will be used in conjunction with it, primarily to allow better communication between teachers and parents on a class level. Soon we will begin sending information to parents of our pilot school (Newport Intermediate) regarding Remind accounts and how to connect. Newport High School and Newport Primary School will follow.

IMPORTANT: Remind pulls information from Infinite Campus (IC). In order to be able to use and receive messages via Remind, you must have the following in place:

  1. Be marked as a guardian of an active student in IC.
  2. Have an active email address on file in IC.
  3. Have an active parent portal account in IC.

Please contact your student’s school counselor to verify or update any missing or incorrect information. Even if you do not wish to use Remind, these three items are vital in order for you to be an active part of your student’s academic journey through Newport Independent Schools.

Letter from the Superintendent - NTI DAYS

Hello Newport Family:

Due to the increase in the number of staff and students who are currently ill or currently quarantined we have decided to close school to in-person learning and make Friday, January 7 through Friday, January 14, 2022 NTI days.  We are out of school on Monday January 17, 2022 for MLK day.  We will resume in person learning on Tuesday, January 18, 2022. 

Students are expected to complete the assignments given by their teachers during the NTI days.  The teachers should have explained the expectations to the students.  If you have questions, please contact your child’s school. 

Meals will be offered for pickup Monday, 1/10 through Friday, 1/14 between 11:00 am and 1:00 pm at each school.  Orders must be placed by 9:00 am each day.  You can place your order by calling (859) 292-3038.  For more information, please visit our Food and Nutrition Services website.

We are still holding the scheduled vaccine clinics unless you hear otherwise. 

Our number one priority is safety for our students and staff.  We feel this is the best course of action at this time.  Thanks in advance for your patience, understanding, and cooperation.  Have a great weekend.
