• Alert: Water Update Late on January 30th, a power outage caused numerous electrical components to burn up, including electrical components of our well.  It took several days to get the parts here to replace the burned out parts. After the repairs were completed, we sent a water sample to be tested by B & J Environmental to make sure our water met EPA standards.  As you know, as we waited for the results, we provided bottled water to the staff and students. The results came back showing our water was safe to drink. Early on February 21st, our maintenance supervisor arrived at school to discover minimal water in our well’s holding tank due to our pump not running.  Our pump is near our football field and high tension power poles. OSHA standards dictate safety regulations related to high tension wires. In order to be in compliance with those safety standards, we had to ask the Illuminating Company to disconnect high tension power which caused a delay in getting the pump replaced.  The pump was replaced today, February 22nd. B & J Environmental will be taking a sample tomorrow and we anticipate getting the results back by Sunday, the 24th. We are grateful to B & J Environmental for working over the weekend to get these tests completed. We are hopeful school will resume on Monday, February 25th.  The worst case scenario would be a delay in the water sample results which would mean providing bottled water for our staff and students.   We will update this website as we receive additional information.

Background:

Dear Black Knight Community,

It is with great pride that I write this letter of introduction as the Assistant Principal and Athletic Director of Newbury Jr./Sr. High School. I started my career at Newbury Jr./Sr. High School in January 2015. I have seventeen years of educational experience spanning grades PK- 12 with specific concentrations in social studies, library-media/technology and alternative education. I began my career in education as a Learning Disability Tutor at Jefferson Jr./Sr. High School in Ashtabula County, Ohio. From 2002-2014, I taught social studies at North Coast Academy, an alternative high school operated by the Educational Service Center of Cuyahoga County. Those years shaped my educational belief that all students can succeed when provided with a caring and dedicated support system of teachers, parents/guardians, administration, school support staff, and community members. It is evident, from my time at Newbury, that the entire Black Knight Community shares this same belief. 

For the upcoming school year, we will continue to emphasize “The Right Way, The Black Knight Way”! My door will always be open and I welcome your involvement. I am eager to work with you as a partner to ensure your child’s success during this important time in his or her educational journey.

All the best,
Anthony R. Forfia
