Former Superintendent, Carol Eaton
It is with a heavy heart that we share the information that former Superintendent Carol Eaton has passed away. Carol was a long-time resident and graduate of Whitney Point CSD. She also spent a number of years as a Superintendent in Massachusetts. We have lost a dedicated educator, colleague, community advocate, and friend. She will be greatly missed.
A memorial service will be held in Carol's honor on August 8th at 1:30 at the Sunset Memorial Services, 2659 Main, Street Whitney Point. There will be no calling hours and her burial at the cemetery in Center Lisle will follow after the service. 
Carol was a lover of animals and it has been noted that if anyone is thinking of doing something in her memory, Carol would have wanted a donation to be made to an animal shelter of your choice.

A Message from Superintendent Patricia Follette:

Graduation time is here and we congratulate all the senior students graduating on June 22! For those of you attending graduation, we will once again be live-streaming the ceremony in the auditorium. This effort will help to accommodate more people and provide a more comfortable setting for some of our guests who might find the gymnasium a challenging setting.  We also plan to live-stream the ceremony online, so check our website for upcoming information.(continued)
