NCS to offer meals at no cost for kids through Dec. 31
NCS to offer meals at no cost for kids through Dec. 31
Newark City Schools will be offering lunch and breakfast to children ages 2 to 18 at no cost, once per day starting Tuesday, Sept. 8. This is because the USDA passed a ruling to allow us to serve at no cost 1 lunch and 1 breakfast a day Monday through Friday, through December 31. Meals will continue to be served between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. at our buildings while students are learning virtually. Students can pick up 1 lunch and 1 breakfast meal daily between those times. Once we return to in-person classes, meals will be offered at regularly scheduled times for all students at no charge.

NCS to return to in-person classes week of Sept. 28
NCS to return to in-person classes week of Sept. 28

When Newark City Schools made the decision to start the 2020-21 school year virtually, the top priority was to keep students and staff safe while providing a quality education. We have been encouraged by the continued decline in COVID-19 cases within our district boundaries during the past month. As a result, NCS currently plans to transition back to in-person learning for all students the week of September 28. Students in Pre-K through grade 2 will start Sept. 28; grades Pre-K through 6, and 9, will attend Sept. 29; and the full district will attend on Sept. 30. Please click here for more information.

We will continue to work with the health department to evaluate data and information during the weeks following Labor Day. The district will notify families of any changes by Mon., Sept. 21.

Students will return to school in phases:

  • Mon., Sept. 28: Pre-K, Kindergarten, grades 1, 2

  • Tues., Sept. 29: Pre-K, Kindergarten, grades 1, 2, 34, 5, 6 and 9

  • Wed., Sept. 30:  All students in-school, grades Pre-K through 12

Online Classroom Etiquette and grading

Online classes are going well across the district, and we wanted to share some tips to help make student learning successful for all:

  • Class sessions are recorded for students to review at a later time as-needed. Please assume you are always able to be heard or seen by students and/or the teacher - do not use inappropriate language or dress around the device that is logged into the online classroom;

  • Students should mute their mics when not talking with the teacher, and should wait to be called on;

  • Use headphones with a microphone to help stay focused and cut down on background noise;

  • Eliminate distractions: Turn off the TV and music, put cell phones away, and so-forth;

  • Create a learning space: A dedicated class space at home will help students be focused on learning;

  • Be prepared and on time: Just like attending school in-person, being prepared for class will help everyone be successful


Classes this fall are being graded normally. We are not giving pass/fail or participation grades. We do want all students to learn and be successful. If your student is having difficulty with anything, please reach out to your teacher directly for assistance.
