JHHS Fourth Quarter Honor RollNewton Falls Families,
I wanted to take a moment to formally acknowledge our incredible Junior High/High School students who achieved Honor Roll for the fourth quarter. During any normal school year, this is an outstanding accomplishment; however, Honor Roll is an even greater achievement this school year with the various challenges COVID has presented us.
Please check out our Virtual Junior High/High School Honor Roll Presentation for the fourth quarter, which can be found in the video below.
I speak on behalf of our entire staff and community when I say how proud we are of your accomplishments. Keep up the great work everyone.
Mrs. Rachael Rankin
Newton Falls High School Philosophy
The staff of Newton Falls High School firmly believes in the development of the whole child, affording all necessary experiences in the physical, mental, social and spiritual life to enable the child to become a well-adjusted individual in our society.
In recognition of individual differences, a comprehensive program is provided affording each student the opportunity to choose an education pathway most conductive to the fulfillment of his/her individual needs.
Acknowledging that a Democracy's strength depends upon the summation of individual capacities and abilities to contribute to it, ample opportunities are provided in the areas of citizenship and leadership.
The staff of Newton Falls High School has the responsibility to constantly evaluate its educational program through various levels of research to insure quality education.
News and Announcements
An important responsibility that we take very seriously at Newton Falls Exempted Village School District is the health and safety of our students and staff. The district closely monitors the COVID-19 variants and the case spread in our town as well as in neighboring communities and throughout the state. We strive daily to balance health concerns with an optimal student experience.
When we began this school year, we communicated to our Tiger families that we were respecting parent choice regarding mandated masks to prevent COVID spread and would continue to monitor numbers and revise our decision as needed. Given the current rapid and aggressive rise in case spread within the district, it is clear that we must move to the next level of mitigation.
Effective tomorrow, Thursday, September 2nd, we will be implementing a mandatory mask mandate for all students in grades K-12. Visitors to any school buildings will be limited and will also be required to wear masks. This is in addition to the federal mandate requiring all passengers to wear facial coverings on public transportation, including school buses.
We currently have more than 36 students and staff in quarantine in the district with each having to miss up to 10 days of in-person learning. We are implementing this masking requirement to stay ahead of these rapidly changing circumstances and to help keep students safely in the classroom for in-person learning.
For those that had mask exemptions last school year, those exemption forms will still remain in effect. New exemption forms for any families interested can be obtained from the Superintendent’s office.
We will reevaluate this mask mandate in consultation with CDC guidelines, the Trumbull County Health Department, and our school nurses Rhonda Knoske and Melissa Pugh. We will revisit our decisions weekly as we review the numbers and adjust accordingly.
Thank you for your patience, understanding, and continued support as we work together to provide the most optimal student experience for our Tigers.
Superintendent Rocco Adduci

Student Tardiness to SchoolStudents are required to be at school on time. Students arriving to school tardy will be penalized after their 3rd offense for an unexcused tardy. A student may be suspended when reaching the excessive number of tardiness. All excused tardiness are not penalized.
The Junior-Senior High School requires that parents provide the school with a written excuse for an early dismissal. Students will take the excuse to the Attendance Office (Junior High Office) when arriving at school and receive a slip to leave school at the appointed time. We ask that parents not arrive and request students be dismissed. It is a disruptive and timely issue for office personnel and teachers. No student will be dismissed during the last 30 minutes of the school day. In an emergency, a phone call informing us of your need to have your child dismissed is certainly helpful under such circumstances.
Doors OpenThe Jr./Sr. High School opens its door at 7:10 AM. Doors will be opened at 7:00 AM when the weather requires the students to come in from the rain, snow or extreme cold. Students will sit in the Commons-Cafeteria until 7:10 AM. Otherwise, the students will remain on the walkways until the entry bell sounds at 7:10 AM.

Attendance ConcernsParents are reminded to call in daily absences to the Attendance Office (330-872-0905). Failure to notify the school of a child's absence will result in the absence being declared "unexcused." Unexcused absences may result in the child not receiving academic credit. If the absence is extended beyond one day, it is best to provide us with that information. Our school system sends out a daily notification to parents if their child is reported absent at the start of the school day. This call is placed to the home after 10:00 AM.
