Newport News Public Schools will be closed for students from Monday, March 16 to Friday, March 27 under order from Governor Ralph Northam in response to the continued spread of the coronavirus.

Families will receive information about accessing instructional materials and meal service next week.

Schools will be open on Monday, March 16, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. for families to pick up medications and medical supplies should such items be needed during the two-week closure.

This evening between 7 and 7:30 p.m., all families will receive a phone call on their primary contact number with a two-question survey about technology access in your household. It is very important that both questions are answered. Your response will assist us with our planning efforts.

As always, we appreciate your support and cooperation.
