Dear Whitney Point community:
The question of the day is, “Will the High School and CEA be ready to open by the time school starts?” The answer is, “YES, we will be ready to open school, but the project will continue throughout the year.” Sidewalks and canopies will be finished later in the fall, updates to rooms in the back wing of the High School will start midyear and the two new UPK rooms will be ready in the spring. The decision to work second shift to finish the project during the school year became part of the plan based on the approval date we received from the State Education Department. We are very fortunate that the contractors on the project have been working diligently and collaboratively to get us in good shape for the opening of school. Please take a look at the campus plan to note new traffic patterns including designated student drop off/pick up loops for both schools.
Times change and we are always looking to improve opportunities for students and keep our network infrastructure up-to-date. This year we added the following:
- · Pre-K full-day classes for 3 year olds.
- · Switching our student management system from PowerSchool to School Tool. Parents and Guardians should have received a letter in the mail asking for any updates.
- · Launching a new program MLScheduler, an online program for requesting the use of school facilities. See the link to the new MLScheduler on our website for instructions on creating an account and helpful videos to assist you in requesting the use of a building or field. If you need assistance with MLScheduler, please call 692-8245.
As I celebrate the start of my 10th year at Whitney Point CSD and my 6th year as Superintendent, I want to thank the Board of Education and the community for your continued support for our schools and programs.
We look forward to welcoming all our students in September!
