Principal's Message

Mr. Travis Peck, Principal

Mr. Peck

I hope everyone enjoyed their holiday break and are excited for what 2018 brings. Now that the winter season is upon us, please continue to check the district’s webpage along with local news and radio stations for possible delays and/or cancelations. The district’s webpage also has an up to date school calendar highlighting early dismissals, no school days, and planned special events.

I wanted to remind everyone that our monthly PTO meetings are held on the first Monday of each month starting at 6:00 p.m. in Newberry’s Library. Please stop by to see how you can help support the students at Newberry.     

Morning drop-off procedures at 8:30 a.m. - All doors will be locked and no supervision will be provided prior to 8:30 a.m. Parent drop off occurs in the back of the school just before the back entrance to the cafeteria at door number 8.  Students should be able to exit the vehicle independently to keep the line of traffic flowing.  Vehicles must remain in a single file line to ensure student safety.  

Students riding a bus will be dropped at the front of the building and enter through door number 13.

Afternoon pick-up procedures at 3:30 p.m. – As in the past, we ask you to write a note if you wish to pick up your child at the end of the school day. If you plan to pick up your child on designated days or for the entire year, indicate such on the blue Daily Dismissal Form, and your child will be placed on a permanent pick-up list. All pick-up students will be released from the front lobby, door number 13.

Breakfast & Lunch - The cost of breakfast is $1.60, lunch $2.65, and milk $.60.  Checks can be made payable to the WSSD Cafeteria.  Menus are located on the District website under the Food Services tab.

Start Time – Students must be in their classrooms by 8:45 a.m. Students should NOT be dropped off prior to 8:30 a.m. Afternoon kindergarten begins at 12:45 p.m. Dismissal is at 3:30 p.m.  If you plan to pick up your child, please send a note to the classroom teacher.
