Superintendent Fleishman’s Commencement Speech Controversy

Safety Update: Newton North and South

July 14, 2017

Dear Newton Families

While I recognize that most of you do not have children in our summer programs at our high schools, I am writing to the entire community because we do have K-12 summer school, summer camps, and special education programs at both Newton North and Newton South. Today, we received an email threat directed at both high schools which was very similar to the unfounded email threats received this week in neighboring communities.

In consultation with the Newton Police and Fire Departments, and Federal Law Enforcement, we have decided to follow our safety protocol and not evacuate. Students and campers are continuing with their regular schedules and routines for the rest of the day. Parents and guardians of children in summer camps may pick up their children earlier then dismissal time if they so desire.

I am sorry to interrupt your summer with this message, and hope you and your family are enjoying a peaceful and relaxing summer.

Sincerely,

David Fleishman
Superintendent of Schools
