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, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 9
Wed., Sept. 30: All students in-school, grades Pre-K through 12
