KINGSTON — Kingston School Principal Seth Villines recently made some announcements concerning the end of the current school year. In a message emailed to students and patrons he said, "I know this has been a hectic last few months so I wanted us all to be on the same page as to how to close the year out.

"First, make sure that all paper AMI packets, classroom books, and library books have been turned in as soon as possible. The boxes for these are located on the front steps by the office. Materials can be dropped here at anytime.

"Second, high school students will be contacted in the coming days to build their schedules for the next year. Please be checking your email for this information so that we can get your input for your schedule.

"Third, next week we will be collecting chromebooks and chargers on Tuesday and Thursday. Someone will be on campus to collect these from 8 a.m.-1 p.m. Make sure that you have both of the items and are prepared to turn on the chromebook to prove that it is still working.

"Lastly I want to thank everyone for their patience during the last few weeks. We have had to make many changes during this time and everyone has been flexible and willing to do whatever is necessary to help our students."

Jeff Dezort, Newton County Times editor, has worked at the newspaper since 2001. Before that he was a reporter, photographer and assistant editor of the Harrison Daily Times.
