Safety and Security

The safety of our schools, staff and students continues to be of utmost importance to Newport News Public Schools.

Schools that are smart and safe open doors for all students by building a foundation of high expectations, rigorous content, and persistent support. We employ a variety of security measures in our daily efforts to provide safe and secure learning environments. Read more about safety and security measures at NNPS.
