Dear Newby Families,

Summer Meals Information

The last day of school is now scheduled to be June 13th and is contingent upon normal calendar operation for the remainder of the year.

April’s Oregon Harvest for Schools will be locally grown kale and golden beets

Each school will be making a kale salad with oven roasted golden beets. This will be served on April 23rd at all elementary schools and on April 24th at all middle schools and the high school.

Golden beets roast easily and taste wonderful. Simply wash, cover with foil and roast.  Roasting brings out the beets silky sweet flavor. Beets are a hardy root vegetable with many health benefits. Beets are an excellent source of folate, and also contain high amounts of vitamin
Beetroot can be peeled, steamed, and then eaten warm with butter; cooked, pickled, and then eaten cold; or peeled, shredded raw, and then eaten as a salad. Beets can also be sliced and eaten raw.
Kale is considered to be a form of wild cabbage. It is from the same species as broccoli, cauliflower, collard greens and Brussels sprouts.
Interesting Facts

  • Until the end of the Middle Ages kale was one of the most common green vegetables in Europe.
  • During World War II the Dig for Victory Campaign was a program in the UK encouraging residents to grow kale because the vegetable was easy to cultivate and provided important nutrients to supplement those missing due to rationing.
  • Kale is often used as a garnish on salad bars.

Supervision of students is a primary concern throughout the school, and mornings are no exception. Options for students before school each morning are:

  1. Cafeteria is open for breakfast 7:30 a.m. to 7:55 a.m.
    1. Supervision in the dining area starts at 7:30 a.m.
    2. Students are dismissed to the playground or computer lab starting at 7:45 a.m.
    3. Students arriving after 7:55 a.m. will receive a “Breakfast on the Go” and report to class.
    4. School begins at 8:05 a.m.
  2. Playground opens at 7:45a.m.
    1. Supervisors open the play area starting at 7:45 a.m.
    2. Students may join the playground activities at any point after 7:45a.m.
    3. Students are organized for entry at 7:55a.m.
    4. School begins at 8:05a.m.
  3. Front entry drop-off area supervision starts at 7:45a.m.
    1. Students arriving before 7:55 a.m. will be directed to the covered play area.
    2. Students arriving after 7:55 a.m. will proceed to class through supervised hallways.
    3. School begins at 8:05a.m.

There is no supervision prior to 7:30 a.m. in the morning at Newby Elementary. Please do not have students arrive at school prior to this time, as this creates a potentially dangerous situation. No adult supervision is available, and we do not want students left on their own in the cold and darkness outside the building. Your help in making this a safe and secure setting is much appreciated.
