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
Dear Tiger Families,
Following Governor DeWine’s announcements last week regarding guidelines for school reopening, the administration team at Newton Falls Exempted Village School District is working diligently with a task force of staff and parents to develop a detailed plan to resume learning in the fall.
During the week of August 3rd, the district will fully release our plan for moving forward with instruction in conjunction with other area superintendents in Trumbull County. We ask for your patience and cooperation as we work to create a plan that maintains high-quality learning opportunities while keeping a focus on the health, wellness, and safety of our students and staff.

Beginning Tuesday, July 7th, food distribution will now take place at the old Elementary building every Tuesday in July from 4:30 PM - 6:00 PM for families in our community that are in need of food. We are asking that you put your address on a big piece of paper, and hold it up to your window so we can mark it off of our list. Please do this each week. We have also been instructed to place the food in your trunk. This is considered the safest protocol. Thank you and God Bless!

With the end of the 2019-2020 school year, the District has begun looking ahead to the 2020-2021 school year in accordance with state and county health department guidance with an emphasis on keeping everyone safe and healthy.. While we all hope that we’ll be back to school in the fall in a traditional school setting, we must plan for any variety of possibilities. Options may include a normal return, to continuing remote learning to a blended option which combines online learning with some face to face learning. As you might imagine, planning for the return of our students is a challenging task in a normal year, but the unknowns facing the District this year presents an entirely different challenge.
Please take a few minutes to complete this important survey. Each family only needs to complete it one time. The survey will gather current views on remote/virtual learning and returning to school in the fall. As always, we appreciate your thoughts and concerns during this difficult time and we appreciate your feedback to help us better service our students and families.
PLEASE COMPLETE THIS SURVEY BY FRIDAY, JUNE 19TH.

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.
