Starting tomorrow, 3/13 all Watertown Public Schools will be closed for 2 weeks. Students and will return on 3/30. While we will work to reopen schools as soon as our local health dept. feels it is safe, families should be prepared for the potential of an extended school closing.

We are closely following the Health Dept recommendations regarding the prevention of COVID-19 and how to respond if students or staff have been exposed. Do not rely on any communications regarding WPS unless it comes from my office, the BOE, or the Town of Watertown.

Based on tomorrow's forecast for a wintry mix of snow, sleet and ice accumulations, schools will be closed tomorrow (12/17/19) to ensure students and staff are safe. I wanted to let you know of tomorrow's closure tonight to provide our families with an opportunity to plan ahead.

The Watertown community has suffered a tremendous loss. Two former students were tragically killed last night in a shooting at their home. Although the two siblings who were killed were not enrolled at our High School, they attended Watertown schools through eighth grade and formed close relationships with students and staff over the years. This morning, crisis teams are in place at Watertown High School and Swift Middle School to support students and staff as they grieve. Our school community, like the wonderful town we live in, will come together to do everything we can to provide support to our students, staff and families during this difficult time.

Isabella is one of our #Polk 5th Graders who was inspired by the district read of Lemonade Wars and set up her own stand in her driveway. It was the best $.50 spent in a long time and I was proud of her entrepreneurial spirit! @miss_agraham #WatertownLearns
