Birthdays / Celebrations

If you would like your child to celebrate his/her birthday at school, plan to do this in the school cafeteria during your child’s lunch period (School Board Policy JJB-P).  All children in your child’s class need to be included in any celebrations.  Your child’s teacher will be happy to provide you with a class count.  Also, please do not bring candles to light.  Healthy snack are encouraged.

Bad Weather

In the case of bad weather, listen to the radio, TV (NNPS Cable Channel 47), or call 926-7618 for information about delayed openings, early dismissals, or school closings.  The Newport News website also has information.  http://sbo.nn.k12.va.us/
 
Make sure your child knows what to do and where to go if schools close early.  The teacher should also have this information.
