The classwork that students are doing during these buildings-closed days will count toward credit for those courses. The State of SD is allowing schools to present material online, as a way to not have to repeat the semester. The work is required to receive a grade and credit.

Newell School District thanks these groups and I would like to ask people to make sure to give thanks to these organizations:

*A huge "Thank You" to @WRCTC . They have provided Internet access to our students who have told us they needed access during our school closure.

*Also, a huge "Thank You" @Coxfarmstand in Vale for providing lettuce for our meals.

*A third huge "Thank You" to @RealtorsForKids in Spearfish for providing bags of snacks.

*And a huge "Thank You" to @FeedingSD for continually providing foods through our BackPack Program and our local Newell Food Pantry.

We are blessed to have community partners like them.

All teachers, grades Pre-K through 12 will continue to host classes online or through paperwork. The homework drop-off/pick-up day will be Monday March 30th from 1-6 p.m. Library books may be returned at this same time.

Families with last names A-E 1-2 p.m.; F-J 2-3 p.m.; K-M 3-4 p.m.; N-S 4-5 p.m.; T-Z 5-6 p.m. We will have the point of drop-off/pick-up on the south end of Campus (4th street) for everyone to be able to drive up. Staff will be at the site to take the work you are turning in and hand you new homework packets.
Parents of high school students, please understand students must complete work assigned during this time to receive credit for their courses.
