Newton HHS: As the COVID-19 situation continues to evolve, it’s important to have up-do-date information from trusted sources. The Newton Department of Health and Human Services is maintaining a useful COVID-19 website with a Coronavirus Q & A, as well as links to the latest local, state and CDC news and recommendations. Check this site regularly, as it will have the most current updates and alerts for our schools and our community.
NPS Support Hotline for Families: The Newton Public Schools, in collaboration with Newton Health and Human Services, is providing a support hotline for families with children enrolled in our schools. This service is staffed by Newton Public Schools counselors and is designed to support families experiencing food scarcity, housing scarcity, domestic or substance abuse, and other mental health struggles exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic. The phone number, 617-559-6021, is answered live M-F from 8 am – 3 pm and is equipped with voicemail.
