Updated Information about Our School Closing.

May 8, 2020
Wolverine Family,

Happy Teacher Appreciation Week. Teachers matter. Thank you. Thank you as well to everyone working to support our children and continue their growth as we move through this homebound situation. You matter. I am incredibly proud of the determination of our kids, school, and community to keep pushing forward as we all wait for NY Re-Open to begin. I continue to hope for the best, as Upstate New York reopens.

The Wolverine Staff has begun summer cleaning. We will begin notifying families if students have locker or classroom items that need to be picked up. Families can also arrange for belongings to be dropped off through our delivery system. The goal is to be prepared for anything by having the buildings cleaned and readied before summer really takes off. We will have more guidance on summer camps, summer school, Reach, fall sports and band at the end of May. Currently, we are preparing for business as usual for those events.

Unfortunately, our budget situation continues to be bleak. We will be voting absentee, so look for a mailing in June. More to come on that.

To my seniors: You matter. I can feel the love for you guys individually and as the Waverly Wolverine Class of 2020. It is great to see the signs in the yards and all the ways the community is supporting all of you. I am proud to see you continue to work on your academics, athletics, music, and art. You are still the leaders and senior class of the Waverly Wolverines, that means something. Keep providing the great examples in all that you do. My message to you today, "Don't wait for the future to define you, be ready to get out there and define the future. We are all counting on you."

To my underclassmen: You matter. Thank you for all the support you have shown me through emails and cards. You are still Wolverines and we still have work to do. That means academics, athletics, arts, and music. When we come back, it is important that we are ready to go. That does not happen by spending the next two months sitting around waiting for something to happen. Push yourself and challenge yourself to get better every day. We are going to hit the ground running. It may be June, July or even August… when your chance comes, you must be ready to take it.

Community: You matter. We have worked hard to tie the school to the community over the last few years. We are a joint entity. I love seeing the senior residents on our track, at our games, concerts, and working with our kids though Senior Recreation. Our families are always supporting our students and our school. We want to continue to support all who need in the community through the food distribution system and our efforts to provide masks to the community. Please reach out to us if there is anything else that needs attention.

This situation continues to put stress on our families and community. I am confident we will continue to support each other through the pandemic and as we rise out of it. I look forward to working with everyone. Stay together, stay positive, and stay in it. Let's go!

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.
