SDNC Masks Update: Effective beginning September 1- No more masks with exhalation valves or vents. The purpose of masks is to keep respiratory droplets from reaching others to aid with source control. Masks with one-way valves or vents allow exhaled air to be expelled out through holes in the material. This can allow exhaled respiratory droplets to reach others and potentially spread the COVID-19 virus. Therefore, CDC does not recommend using masks if they have an exhalation valve or vent. If needed, the school will have a disposable mask to give to students until a new mask can be purchased. All students were given a cloth mask which can still be used.

We are asking families to hold up a sign or fingers to indicate how many children need meals. If possible, we would prefer to place the meals in the trunk of the cars to reduce the chance of exposure. If the trunk is not an option, please roll down a window. No one will need to get out of the car for this service. We thank you all for your continued support and encourage all of you to frequently wash your hands and maintain appropriate social distancing.

With the Governor’s proclamation for closing schools, the School District of Newberry County will not have school through March 31. Students and families are asked to continue to practice good hygiene by washing hands and also maintain social distancing by staying six feet away from others. We will be sending out information about meals being provided to students, including locations to pick up breakfast and lunch in the near future. We will also provide information regarding student assignments to be completed during the closing. Additional details will be provided soon.
