News and Announcements

Dear Parents,

I want to welcome you to the final two weeks prior to school starting in the Transportation department. The department has worked continuously throughout the summer to refine the routes trying to make all seven routes as consistent as possible regarding number of riders, number of miles, and amount of time per bus route for High School/Junior High and Elementary/Middle School.

We used last year's (school year 2020-2021) rider database to build these routes. Therefore, if your child did not ride or is not planning to ride the bus this school year PLEASE, PLEASE fill out the following Google form allowing us to make as many of these corrections in the next two weeks prior to the first day of school.

Click here to fill out the Google form.

We want to assist you with your household, school day, final preparations; hence, every Monday we will update the website with a tentative bus route schedule. We use the term tentative because we are still experiencing Kindergarten registration and other entries/withdrawals daily.

Click here to see the current bus routes.

If you have any questions please feel free to call the Transportation Office at 330-872-5445 extension 1032.

Thank you,
John Crowder
Middle School Principal/Transportation Supervisor

The school district has been made aware of a possible security breach impacting several students' social security numbers and potential tax fraud. District Administrators and our technology department are actively investigating the issue but at this time, we have no evidence of a security breach through Newton Falls EVSD.

Several parents have expressed concern regarding the District's integration of Final Forms for student registration; however, this was ruled out after receiving confirmation from Final Forms that student social security numbers are not stored in their system. Similarly, we also received confirmation from ACT that student social security numbers are not utilized for testing. NEOMIN, (Northeast Ohio Management Information Network), which provides technology shared services to public schools in Trumbull County, has also reported no instances of a data breach of their network systems.

We are continuing to thoroughly investigate this matter to help determine the source of the breach. District Administration have contacted both the Newton Falls Police Department and the Internal Revenue Service to notify them of this matter.

We are trying to ascertain a complete list of students who may have been impacted by this fraudulent activity. If you have been contacted by the IRS within recent months regarding potential fraud with your child(ren)'s social security number, please contact Newton Falls Superintendent Justin Christopher at christopherj@nfschools.org or JH/HS Principal Rachael Rankin at rankinr@nfschools.org as soon as possible. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.

The District has partnered with PlayOn! Sports and the NFHS Network to install cameras in the Gene Zorn Gymnasium, Junior High Gymnasium, and Football Stadium so we may stream live game footage to our fans from the comfort of their own home for the upcoming school year.

Previously, we had utilized the services and expertise of Tom Gregory and GregoryFilms to help provide this service to our fans. This decision was a cost-saving measure to help reduce expenses while still providing a continuity of streaming services for our community.

We appreciate all of Tom's hard work for our district and the time he spent teaching our students valuable lessons relating to multimedia and broadcasting. We hope to continue forward with our streaming and broadcasting program using the skills and knowledge that Mr. Gregory has shared with our students. Thank you for your understanding and we look forward to you tuning in to our 22-23 Tiger Season!

Student Tardiness to School

Students 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 Open

The 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.

N.F. Fight Song

Go Newton Falls High
Fight for victory,
With your colors flying
We will cheer you all the time.
Rah! Rah! Rah!
Go Newton Falls High
Fight for victory,
Spread far the fame of our fair name.
Go you Tigers! Win that game!

FIGHT!

N.F. Alma Mater

To Newton Falls we stand and sing,
And praise to alma mater bring.
Ever will our thoughts to thee
Be pledged in love and loyalty.
Friendships true and memories dear
Will live throughout each coming year.
Fellowship within thy halls
Has bound our hearts to Newton Falls

Attendance Concerns

Parents 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.
