Dear WASD K-8 Families:
August 24, 2021
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:
This year we welcome several students to our school with allergies to peanuts and/or other nuts. We invite your help and cooperation to help them stay safe.
Reactions range from mild to life threatening. Any exposure to peanuts or nuts may cause an allergic reaction that requires emergency medical treatment. To reduce the chance of this occurring, we are asking that you do not send any peanut- or nut-containing products to school with your child that will be eaten in the classroom.
Children may eat what they like in the cafeteria, where a table is available for students with food allergies.
We look forward to working together with you to have a wonderful year. If you have any questions, please call Lisa Theobald, School Nurse, at (570) 226‑4557 ext. 3080.
