SCHOOL CLOSING

  • In closing the school, The New School considers many factors including the closing of major school districts in our area. However, the ultimate decision to close is made by The New School.
  • You should not assume that The New School is closed because other schools are closed.

When a school closing is announced, all programs including Extended Care and the Business Office are closed.
