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:
- 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.
- 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.
- The Lowman Park and Ride Location will be changing to the bottom of Roberts Hollow Road, beside the Holley Park Mailboxes.
- 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.
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.
Inspire. Educate. Learn. Succeed. Grow.
