COVID-19 UPDATE from School Nurse

Here is a COVID-19 Update from School Nurse, Mrs. Rhonda Knoske:

News and Information

Good evening Newton Falls families, this is Superintendent Rocco Adduci with an urgent message for the district:

Due to a COVID exposure in our transportation department, the district will be unable to provide school transportation and therefore all students K-12 will be remote for the remainder of this week. This includes TCTC transportation. All TCTC students who can provide their own transportation are advised to attend in-person. Those TCTC students who are unable to obtain transportation should follow their instructors' directives for remote learning.

Students will follow their purple schedule beginning Wednesday, March 3rd, through Friday, March 5th. Per CDC guidelines, the transportation employees will be quarantined until Monday, March 8th. If they develop symptoms during the quarantine period, they will continue their quarantine and will be tested for COVID before returning to work.

At the present time, none of our drivers are symptomatic and all remained masked while on the busses; therefore no students are required to quarantine at this time.

Again, all students K-12 will be remote effectively tomorrow, March 3rd through Friday, March 5th, and will resume in-person on the hybrid schedule next week on Monday, March 8th. All in-person students should follow their purple schedules and remote students are encouraged to also. Thank you, stay healthy, and have a great evening.

The Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) cards will soon start to be mailed to parents of students that qualify for a free or reduced priced meal. The benefit amount is $5.86 per child for each day the child DID NOT RECEIVE A FREE OR REDUCED LUNCH MEAL at the school due to closure, reduced attendance or hours, OR SCHEDULE (remote or in school) beginning in September 2020. The benefits may change month to month, depending on how many days your child was remote learning or did not have access to breakfast or lunch at school.

Benefits will be distributed on a monthly basis from February 2021 through August 2021.

P-EBT benefits can be used to buy food items at grocery stores and other retailers that accept the Ohio Direction Card (also referred to as an EBT card.)

If the child is a current SNAP recipient:

» The P-EBT benefits may be added to the account on which the child is active.
» If the child was unable to be matched to an active SNAP account, you will be sent an P-EBT card in the child’s name.

If the child is not a current SNAP recipient:

» By mid-February, you should receive a preloaded P-EBT card in the mail.
» The card will be in the child’s name, not the parent or guardian’s name.
» Instructions on how to activate the card will be included.

Families that receive a new P-EBT card MUST keep the card in order to continue to receive their monthly benefit. The benefit will be issued on the card monthly.

To view the complete information about the P-EBT cards and the chart that shows how the days were calculated, go to https://www.newton-falls.k12.oh.us/images/318/P-EBTCardInfo2021.pdf
