Yearbook News!

Want to remember your student's time here at Newcastle, pre-order your yearbook at and save those memories forever.

After School Pick Up

  1. Do not come before 2:30.  Staging causes traffic jams for the neighbors.
  2. If you have a student participating in an after school activity or sport, please pick them up promptly at their release time. The school office closes at 3:30 and there is no supervision after that time.
  1. If siblings are waiting for practice to end, please have them join Homework Lab or Discovery.  Otherwise, we do not have supervision.
  1. Please consider using the lower parking campus parking lot to relieve traffic at the upper campus.  We have an escort to walk students down the nature trail.   A staff member will walk students down just after 2:30.
