Welcome to Waverly Central Schools!

What's Happening at Waverly Schools?

Updated Information from Our Superintendent.

June 25, 2020  
Wolverine Family,

We are a day away from graduation. I want to thank all the parents, guardians and community members for their help and support of our kids. From the police and fire providing security and guidance for our parade last week and our ceremony tomorrow, to the Shadow Box making up individualized gift bags for our seniors, and so much more, support has been awesome. Tomorrow will be the first graduation (and hopefully the last) of its kind. We are capping our stands at 120-130 tickets per session and we have four graduation sessions. It is not perfect but it meets our two goals. The kids will walk in the stadium and their parents will get to be a part of it. We will have multiple staff on site to help people get into the prearranged social distanced seats. We are asking people to wear masks where they cannot social distance. Some of our ushers are students from our Work-Based Learning Program. We appreciate their help. I encourage you to park in the bottom lots at Elm if you are not handicapped and walk up to the stadium. This will be a great event and will be live on the school website as well as the Wolverine News Network on YouTube. Please work together to keep the focus on our kids and their accomplishments.

To my seniors: Let's go! Tomorrow is the day. It has been a crazy ride this spring and I appreciate your flexibility and teamwork. Please note that we are not just your teachers and school administrators while you are in school. We will be connected forever as Wolverines. That means if you need a letter of recommendation 10 years from now, reach out. If you have questions, about school or education, reach out. The beauty of our small town is that we are all connected. Use it. I cannot wait to see you in the morning tomorrow. Do not be late for practice.

To my underclassmen: Let's go! We are planning our Phase 4 reopening for Friday, June 26. The Governor is supposed to come out with guidance on public schools today or tomorrow. The Governor put out a document last week saying sports cannot start until July 6. We are checking to see if that means no conditioning practices next week or if that is different. Check your emails and stay in touch with your principals, advisors and coaches. We will open safely, but we will open at the earliest opportunity.

Community: Let's go! Congratulations. Once again, you have helped raise and support 121 high school graduates. Your support, tax dollars and encouragement have created a senior class where 14 students have academic averages over 100%. Four division 1 athletic scholarships, All-State Music and Athletic Award Winners and a hard-working, competitive group of kids. I hope the kids appreciate the opportunities provided to them by growing up in Waverly, New York. You have my personal thanks for all you do for our children and the school district.

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.
