Newton County Newsletter

Hello All!

The Newton County Extension staff are still here for the citizens of Newton County. Times are uncertain and circumstances are changing hourly. We want to take a moment to give you an update from our office and provide you research based information to keep you and your family safe!

Please note...All Extension events/meetings are cancelled until further notice. MSU is closely monitoring the situation and implementing a plan for what the next few weeks will look like for our office as we try to serve and aid the community.

Social distancing is very important. Please try to stay safe and healthy during this time by staying home if you're sick. Remember to cover coughs and sneezes into your elbow, and practice social distancing by avoiding hugs, handshakes and small crowds. Please add the Newton County Extension Office Facebook page for updated information and tips that we will post for your family needs.

You can reach a member of our staff immediately by phone at 601-635-7011, or if you have a non-time sensitive request or inquiry, you can email individual staff members (see gray sidebar to the right for emails.)

In order to best serve the clientele of Newton County during this time, the Extension office will remain open during normal hours, Monday-Friday, 8:00 - 5:00. However, in compliance with the MSU efforts to slow the spread of COVID-19, we ask that you contact our office by phone, mail or email, so that we can best provide your educational needs.

Sincerely, The Extension Agents

Katrina McCalphia and Leanne Kilgore
