Dear Watertown Public Schools Faculty, Students, and Families,

I can’t believe it’s already almost the end of July! I hope that you have all been enjoying a relaxing and fun filled summer with friends and family. The district has been busy at work providing summer learning activities and preparing facilities for the upcoming school year. Our custodial/maintenance/technology teams have been working diligently to stay on schedule with our big capital improvement projects and FY 24 budget investments. 

Below you will find pictures and important dates for the start of the year! Have a great rest of your week, Watertown.

Dr. V
