It’s a great day to be a Newberry Panther! 🐾
Here are the announcements for Monday, January 8th:
We were very excited to welcome all our Panthers back to campus today after our Winter Break. Please remember there is no school on Friday (January 12th), which is a Teacher Workday, and no school on Monday (January 15th) in observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
There will be a meeting today after school in the NHS Media Center from 3:10 pm until 4:30 pm for any students interested in participating in the Panther track team this year. Please see Coach Roundtree if you have any questions.
IMPORTANT! Beginning tomorrow, any cars that are parked in the lot by the bus depot at Newberry High School WILL BE TOWED. This is not a designated parking area on the NHS Campus and cars parked there will be towed from campus. Please see Mr. Treese to purchase a parking permit for the junior/senior parking lots if you still need one.
Students, please remember that even though it is getting cooler outside blankets are not allowed at school. Also, you must still follow all dress code policies, including not wearing pajamas, slippers, or any type of head coverings. If you have any questions, please see Dean Burford or Dean Yarn.

Distribution of laptops will begin when we return to school on Tuesday (January 16th). Thank you to everyone who has successfully submitted the Computer Agreement Acknowledgement.
