Updated Information about Our School Closing.

April 8, 2020

Wolverine family,

I wanted to write to you and provide you with all the information I have at this time. The number one priority continues to be safety and containment of the COVID 19 virus. I want to thank you all for your efforts to socially distance, expect cleanliness and contain the virus from spreading like it has in NYC. Unfortunately, we are still not out of the woods. We must continue to be safe and stay together but from a distance.

The big question everyone wants to know: When are we coming back? The answer, no idea but not before April 28. The governor extended the state closure to the 28th, and the Board of Regents has cancelled the end of the year Regents Exams. If a student passes the regent’s course they are in, they get credit for passing the regents. If you have questions about how this affects you, please send an email to your guidance counselors. They are working from home and will answer any questions.

To my Seniors: I want to say again; we will do everything in our power to make sure we support you with graduation and college entry. If you run into anything, you need help on call 565-8101. If that does not do it for you, call the district office. NYS Athletics meets April 27 to decide spring sports.

To my underclassmen: the regents have been canceled, but school has not. We need to keep learning. Please stay engaged; people are moving mountains to make this work for you. If you are not actively participating in your classes, you are not doing your part as a Wolverine. Congrats, to the 70% who are really growing and learning. We also can create paper-based curriculum for you if you need it.

My house is starting to find a routine. It is not normal and it is not going to be for a while yet. It has been 38 days since we entered this crisis. I have learned many things about my family and myself. I have done my first TIC TOK, taught my daughter card games, listened to my wife sing all the words to “Parents Just Don’t Understand”, and perform poorly for you people on Friday morning livestreams. The key is we are moving forward and learning the best we can. Together we are supporting each other. I wish the best for you and your families. PROGRESS NOT PERFECTION.

As a school, our staff continues to astound me. Our medical masks have made it as close as the Valley and as far away as Philadelphia. We continue to ship out 900 meals daily by the Chuck Wagon Crew. We are the hub for food resources and mental health services. The staff is now undertaking a sewing mask operation to provide over 1,000 masks. The schools have been decorated, meetings livestreamed and zoom connections made. All of our Wolverine Family continually amaze me.

I appreciate all you do and truly expect our Valley to be a better place when this is over. Take time to appreciate all those who are putting it on the line from EMS and healthcare workers to grocers, clerks, cooks, servers, secretaries, teachers and police. Everyone can contribute. Find your own way.

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.
