Wolverine Team,

Hang on to your hats today or they will end up in Binghamton. That wind is blowing up to 50 mph this afternoon. I like it because it will dry out the playgrounds and ballfields. The sounds of softballs and baseballs getting knocked around is a sign warm weather is coming. Here are a few updates to keep everyone in the loop:

  1. We had three (2 students and one staff) positive Covid tests on Monday that affected about 25 kids and one staff member. We are still not out of the Covid woods. Towanda and Athens both had school shutdowns this week. Multiple sports teams in the IAC were shut down this week. If you or your child are having any symptoms, stay home and see a doctor. We can figure school and activities out later.
  2. Sports are rolling. We have a full slate this afternoon with swimming, soccer and volleyball happening. Once again you can view these on our YouTube channel, WNN Wolverine News Network, or click the links at the top of our Waverly Schools webpage. Away games can generally be found by going to the opponent team's website. Waverly football is away at Owego tomorrow at 6:00 and cross country is in Maine Endwell at 9:30.
  3. New York will have a final budget by law next week, April 1st. We will then have a final budget for the Board of Education and the taxpayers. The current property tax cap is about 1.7 as it sits today. That is on average $25 per 100,000 of assessed value. This will move up or down depending on your municipality.
  4. The school district used virtual days of instruction this year instead of snow days. This will allow us to give back four days this spring. We are still working with our team to find the best dates. We will get those dates out to faculty, families, and the community early next week.
  5. It is great to see the kids start signing with colleges to continue their educational and athletic goals. Thank you to all the coaches and supporters from recreation through varsity for the support of these kids.
  6. State Line Auto and Jeff Barber have generously offered to support the Winner's Circle Racecar Project. Jeff offered to paint the car and auction it off. Thank you to them and all the supporters of this project. It has allowed our kids to push the limits of education.
I hope everyone has a nice weekend. Get those leaves raked up and get ready to mow grass. Best wishes and stay safe.

Kids, Community and Each Other,

Dr. Eric Knolles

Waverly CSD Superintendent of Schools
