    Stronger Together

    With schools temporarily closed to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus, families must juggle work, homeschooling children, and new levels of stress and anxiety.  
    This is a scary, uncertain time for everyone so, focus on what you can control.  
    It will help calm fears, manage stress and help children self-regulate their behavior.

    Visit the
    Student Support Services Page
    for more information, tips, and additional resources!

    Weekly Reminders & Updates!

    Jan 15, 2021

    *New COVID-19 Information – Did you know that if a student is positive for COVID-19 that they may not be able to return to Physical Education class, athletic practices or use the workout room? As of December 15, 2020, any student who tests positive for COVID-19 must be released by their doctor to return to PE class. This is due to COVID-19 cardiac symptoms and the impact they have on the heart. For more information click here.

    *Whitesville Central School has now experienced positive COVID-19 cases. Check https://schoolcovidreportcard.health.ny.gov/#/home daily to stay informed. Always remember that our District is responsible to maintain the confidentiality of each positive person. Please know that you will be contacted by the school if your child is a direct contact to a positive person at school or on the bus.

    *Check out https://coronavirus.health.ny.gov/system/files/documents/2020/10/prek-gr12_toolkit.pdf if you are wondering if you should send your child to school or not.

    *Positive COVID-19 cases continue to increase in Allegany weekly update graphic County. Should our community be designated as Yellow Zone, we will be able to remain open. However, we must have 20% of our students and staff tested. If this happens, much more information and consent forms will be sent home to all families.

    *As always, if you have questions please email Mrs. Emery, Superintendent, at temery@whitesvillesd.org.

    Enjoy your weekend!

  • ACCORD to host food distribution
    in Wellsville NY

    Food Distribution  

    Belmont, NY- ACCORD is pleased to announce they will host food distributions on Wednesday, January 20, 2021, and Wednesday, February 17, 2021, at the Wellsville Alfred State Campus at 2350 River Road in Wellsville at approximately 3pm.

    If a family is unable to attend but is in need of food, they can call our ACCESS Center at 585-268-7605 extension 1001 to request an Emergency Food Box to be scheduled for pick up by appointment. An intake and proof of income will be required. 

    ACCORD will have enough food boxes to serve 300 families in need. “This is a drive through distribution and food is given out on a first come first serve basis until it is gone. All that is needed is the family’s zip code and the ages of household members. Once we obtain that information our volunteers load boxes into your car. It’s that easy,” said Potter.
