Due to increased levels of Covid community transmission in Wayne and Pike counties, all K-8 school buildings in the Wallenpaupack Area School District will be holding Open House virtually, similar to the opening of the 2020-2021 school year. Please disregard previous Open House communications, as adaptations are being made in all buildings.
Before the opening of school, all building principals will upload videos to their respective websites that will outline important information to begin the year. Once Schoology pages are active and all students have received their district issued technology, teachers will communicate pertinent classroom information to families.
We realize that students are often anxious about getting lost on the way to class at the beginning of the year. This is especially true for all new students to the building. All buildings assign staff members to assist in hallways and direct students to their assigned classrooms on the first day of school. Also, those in need are provided tours to become familiar with their daily routes.
If you have specific questions or needs regarding the opening of school, please contact your child's building principal:
Best wishes to all students for a successful start to the 2021-2022 school year.

If you are going to pick up your child from school early for an appointment or at dismissal time, you must send a note with your child. If someone else is picking up your child, please indicate this in the dismissal note. In order to protect our students and your children, photo identification is required when picking up a student.
The North Intermediate School will again be participating in Artsonia, the world's largest online art gallery. The web address is www.artsonia.com. Parents and grandparents may view their students' artwork and purchase items with their students' artwork printed on it, if desired.
