Mrs. Tammy Emery,
Dear Whitesville Community,
It has been an amazing start to the new school year! It was encouraging to see so many families at Open House. We have great things in store for the coming year at all grade levels as we help students learn to work together, show empathy, problem-solve, think creatively, lead others and learn about themselves. Sometimes these skills are considered “soft skills,” but they are critical skills to have in school, workforce, college, and in life. A survey will be available this fall for all WCS Alumni to complete. The purpose of the survey is to help improve our District through your experiences, since graduation, with honest feedback of your successes and challenges. The survey link and more information will be posted on our website soon.
The 2022 Capital Project Hearing will be held on October 11th at 6:30PM in the high school library. Everyone is encouraged to attend and hear what is being proposed to improve our buildings and grounds. The Capital Project Vote will be held on October 18th, noon until 8PM, in the WCS big gym. Please see our website for more information (www.whitesvillesd.org).
Safety is still our top priority. Our Annual Safety meeting was held on September 13th. I appreciate the partnership we have with our local police, fire, and emergency personnel, as well as our Amity Troopers and CA BOCES specialists. Our District Wide and Building Level plans have been submitted to the state. We had our annual evacuation drill on September 21st during school hours. Our mandatory annual “Early Go Home Drill” will be October 7th. Students will be dismissed 15 minutes early. Please plan accordingly.
Clear communication is always important and kind. Please check https://www.whitesvillesd.org often to know what is happening at school, pictures of your children, and our weekly updates. We will also be using our Global Connect Blackboard system for phone calls, texts, and emails. Please make sure all your contact information is up to date to stay best informed.
If you have questions, please do not hesitate to email me at email@example.com or call me during school hours at 607.356.3301.
To our Veterans, we appreciate you and our freedom every day. THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE!
From my family to yours, Happy Thanksgiving!
