Dear WWPRSD Community,

This week we entered our second month of school and have completed two cycles for each of our Hybrid 1 and Hybrid 2 schedules. Our heartfelt thank you to our families and students for vigilantly completing the daily health screening form and adhering to the rules related to social distancing, mask wearing, and temperature checks. Your dedication to these safety protocols has allowed us to successfully complete 19 days of school. My thanks and appreciation to our support staff, administration, counselors, child study team members, nurses, and teachers who continue to transition to evolving and dynamic learning environments and shifts in learning platforms and technologies. Our staff continues to persist through an evolving list of challenges. I am confident that they will continue to show up and lean into the difficult work for our students.   

Today also marks National Custodian Day. In an era of COVID-19, our custodial and maintenance staff are essential workers in the fight to maintain the health and safety of our students, staff, and greater WW-P school community. This past May, we transitioned our custodial team from Aramark to ABM. ABM started in district on May 1 and has done a remarkable job in transition. During this time, the district also returned 21 Building and Grounds positions to WW-P. These positions include 11 operations foremen, two heating ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) mechanics, one vehicle mechanic, one electrician, one grounds foreman, four members of our grounds team, and one courier. The school district has made a commitment to updating and improving our facilities. The change in structure is further evidence of our commitment to guarantee that we have the right team in place to ensure the educational environment for our students and staff.  Leading this charge is our Building and Grounds Director Thomas Daly and Assistant Director Jason Harris. Both spent endless hours this summer working to update all cleaning protocols and training their staff to the new standards. Ensuring the safe operations of our facilities requires a team. No one exudes this more than Thomas and Jason.

Sincerely,

David Aderhold, Ed.D

Superintendent of Schools
