• 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.

Dear Parent,


On behalf of the Newbury Local School District, I am deeply saddened to share that a member of our school community, Mr. Robert Michael, a teacher in our Social Studies Department, has passed away.  Mr. Michael, a member of the Newbury Family for the past 30 years, was a well-respected teacher and coach.  He was passionate about teaching young people and he will be sorely missed. We will be informing the students of Mr. Michael’s death on Monday morning, as well as the school counseling services available to them. This loss is sure to raise many emotions, concerns, and questions for our entire school, especially our students.


Grief is the normal, necessary and individual process that occurs after a loss.   Your child may be feeling many different emotions:  shock, sadness, confusion, even some anger.  What is most important is that we care for and support them and each other during this time.  Our school will be providing grief counselors and support staff onsite beginning Monday and continuing as long as needed.


We have included a summary page on grief and local resources that are available to provide you support.  However, if you are concerned about your child or if you have questions or concerns regarding how your child is coping please feel free to contact Mr. Chaffee or me so that we can support him/her through this process. 





Dr. Jacqueline A. Hoynes
