Greetings from Watertown Public School! Check out this video for a little Snow Day fun! https://youtu.be/KIdt98xoiAQ
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.
Today is National Paraprofessional Appreciation Day–a time for us to acknowledge the dedication and support of our paras across the district. Thanks for all you do for our students, teachers and community! #WatertownCares
