Dear Watertown Public Schools Faculty and Families,

The first two days of school were a great success! Thank you to all of our faculty and staff for making the first days of school enjoyable, safe, and welcoming for all of our students. And thank you to all of our families for working with us these first few days to ensure a smooth transition back to school - your patience is much appreciated as students get back into routine.
