One Hour Delay

Good afternoon Newton-Conover. We hope you’ve all enjoyed the snow and have been safe this weekend. Although the roads, parking lots, and sidewalks seem to be clear and dry, as a precaution we will operate on a one hour delay tomorrow for students. Staff are to report to school at the normal time. Kid Connection will operate on a one-hour delay as well. Again, we will have a one hour delay for students tomorrow with staff reporting at normal time. Thanks, and we will see you tomorrow!

Weather Information Update - 12/8 at 12:45pm

Good afternoon! We are monitoring the weather situation closely. At this time, temperatures are well above freezing, and there is no danger to students or staff and no cause for early dismissal. Of course, we will continue to monitor the weather closely in collaboration with Catawba County Emergency Services, and if there is a cause for early dismissal, we will certainly contact you immediately. As a precaution due to dropping temperatures later in the evening, all high school athletic events have been canceled for this evening. At this time, Kid Connection (after school) will remain open on a regular schedule for your convenience. Thank you for your support!
