***Superintendent's Message***

February 10, 2017

Dear Parents,

Due to a commitment I had made before I began serving as Acting Superintendent, I will be out of the country from February 18 until March 18.

Arrangements have been made for Mr. Timothy Connors to serve as Acting Superintendent and address any issues requiring the attention of the superintendent during my absence.  He will monitor communications to my email address but can also be contacted directly via email attimconnors@wpcsd.k12.ny.us.

Mr. Connors will be appointed at the February 13th Board of Education meeting.
