Updated Information from Our Superintendent.

Wolverine Team,

  In an effort keep our students and staff safe as we are returning to school, we are asking that our parents assist us in pre-screening their child(ren) before sending them to the bus or school. It will be a very simple process and non-intrusive to your morning routine. Sending your student(s) to school healthy and symptom free is key to a successful year for your family and the Waverly Central School District.

We are asking that you not send your student if they have ANY ONE of the following symptoms:

• Cough
• Difficulty breathing or shortness of breath
• Fatigue
• Muscle or body aches
• Headache
• Loss of taste or smell
• Congestion or runny nose
• Nausea or vomiting
• Diarrhea
• Or your student has been in contact with a diagnosed COVID-19 case in the last 14 days.

We understand that many of these symptoms are also for other illnesses but unfortunately COVID symptoms mock many others.
By sending your student to the bus or school, you are acknowledging that the pre-screening has been completed. We trust that you would not send a symptomatic child to school during these times.

Kids, Community and Each Other,

Eric Knolles

Wolverine Team,
Well, we are almost there. Whether your student is starting school in-person or virtually on September 8, they are starting school! The Wolverines will be activated and ready to go. I have a few details for you today before wishing you a nice weekend.

  1. No changes from the Department of Health as of today, still masks or social distance for staff and students.
  2. Please download the Wolverine App if you have not done so. All your school communications are coming through the App.
  3. If you have schedule questions please call your child's school before next Friday. Offices will be staffed until 1:00 next Friday.
  4. The open house dates and bus schedules and assignments have been mailed. You should receive them by Monday.
  5. Get some good masks for the kids and make sure they are practicing. Get them used to waking up. I woke my kid up at 8:30 this morning and she thought I was torturing her. They need to be ready for September 8
  6. If you have concerns about anything just ask. We are super excited to get started.
  7. All sports can start practicing on September 21. Make sure your child is signed up on Family ID.
  8. The traffic flow is going to be different at the Jr-Sr. High School. Please look for an App alert. We will have lots of help on the first day. Stay calm and it will all work out.
  9. Check the App. Many of you should be stopping by next week to get computers and other devices.
  10. Support each other, support our kids and stay positive. Let's Go!

Have a great weekend.
Kids, Community and Each Other,

Eric Knolles

Waverly Central Schools Shut Down Until April 14th - see the message below for details.

Saturday, March 14, 2020

Dear Waverly Central School District families,

Suspension of Classroom and Extracurricular Functions
Under advisement of the New York State Department of Health and by order of Tioga County, regarding the suspension of all classroom and extra-curricular functions for prevention efforts against COVID-19, the Waverly Central School District will be closed for students beginning Monday, March 16 through and including, Monday, April 13. All district buildings will be open between 11am-1pm on Sunday, March 15th and Monday, March 16th, for parents and/or students to collect personal belongings and educational learning materials. If, at the end of this closure, the situation is deemed clear by health officials, students will report on Tuesday, April 14, 2020.

We anticipate Monday, April 13, 2020 will now be a Superintendent's Conference Day. Staff only will report on Monday, April 13th. (NO student attendance).

Food Service Information
Pre-packaged breakfast and lunch will be available at the High School campus for pick-up, Monday, March 16th from 10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. Children who are enrolled in the Waverly Central School District, along with their siblings, age 18 or under, that reside in the same household, are eligible to participate. The remainder of the closure, from Tuesday, March 17-April 13, (Monday through Friday) distribution of breakfast and lunch will be provided by the district.

Thank you for your patience as we flush out some small changes in our systems! There are a couple updates we would like to make our community aware of with regards to meal distribution:
  1. The Broad Street Location has moved. It will now be located just outside the Five Star Apartments, across from Spaulding Street. The time of pickup remains the same. Anyone who had home delivery at this location will now be able to go just outside their building and grap meals.
  2. Those needing home delivery must request their meal by 10:00pm the night before delivery. Unfortuanately, due to the volume of meals being prepared each day, we need time to fill the orders as they come in.
  3. The Lowman Park and Ride Location will be changing to the bottom of Roberts Hollow Road, beside the Holley Park Mailboxes.
  4. For those needing home delivery, please remember that it is for people who do not have the ability to get to a site for pickup. If you are capable of getting to a local pickup site, please do so. For your convenience, we have enclosed the sites again and corresponding times.
Detailed information regarding food distribution will also be available on the District's website.

More Information
In the next few days, we will be following up with information for staff and parents regarding educational programming and other important items regarding this closure. Please use the district website and Waverly Schools app (through Apple and Android app store) for the most up to date information.

Thank you for the support as we prioritize the safety of everyone in our community. We encourage everyone to take precautions during this time by reducing travel, maintaining social distance, and practicing good hygiene. Take care of and help one another.
