It is with relief and thankfulness that NISD is able to give you a good report. We have received an update from the Texas Department of Health, in regards to the recent case of Meningitis reported in our school. The type and cause of this particular meningitis does not meet the state and federal criteria guidelines as a reportable disease, neither does it incur risk to students or staff of NISD.
Newton ISD appreciates the community’s support, and we will be diligent in the preventive measures we are presently implementing on campus. The cleaning and disinfecting of all campuses will move forward in order to protect our students during the peak of the influenza season. The health and safety of our students and staff will always remain a top priority, and our current policy and procedures regarding illness in school can be found below.
Newton ISD will resume scheduled classes on Monday, February 18th. The district appreciates your understanding at this time.
