WAHS Senior Wins EverFi Scholarship
As part of the district's graduation requirements, all students must complete an independent, financial literacy program called EverFi. Sponsored by the Honesdale National Bank, EverFi teaches students about such personal finance aspects as funding post-secondary education, establishing credit, understanding insurances, and recognizing the impact of purchasing decisions.
The EverFi Corporation believes in connecting classroom learning to the real world so that young adults may become successful. Consequently, EverFi offers three one thousand dollar, 529 Plan scholarships. To be eligible, students must complete all of EverFi's financial literacy modules and submit a five hundred word Reflection essay, detailing how the EverFi content applies to their futures. This year, EverFi selected Gina Nolan as a recipient of this national scholarship. Honesdale National Bank's Mr. Mark Graziadio and Ms. Sarah O'Hora presented Gina with her Everfi Certificate as they congratulated her for this achievement.

Notice Regarding Student Insurance - Updated for 2016-2017!
Please be advised that it is the responsibility of the parents/guardians, in the event of a student accident, to provide for accidental injury expenses either through insurance or cash payment to health care providers. For this reason, the School District would like to make you aware of the availability of a low cost, standard school approved insurance policy.
The School District does not provide insurance coverage for students. If you do not have insurance or the financial ability to cover potential injury expenses, we encourage you to review this Student Accident Insurance document.
If you choose to purchase insurance through this program, please have your child return the completed insurance form with your payment to their school and it will be forwarded to the insurance company to process.
We hope this program can be a valuable service for you and your family.
For updated information about the Cafeteria for the 2016-2017 school year, including the new online payment program, please read this document.
