Dear Watertown Public Schools Faculty, Families and Students,

Tomorrow is the first day of school! We are excited to welcome back all of our returning and new students. As a friendly reminder, please note that buses tend to take a little longer at the start of the year as they complete their first runs of the year. We thank you in advance for your patience as we get into a new routine for the school year.

Also, please be reminded that Wed. 8/30, Thurs. 8/31, and Fri, 9/1 are all Early Dismissal Days and students will follow a shortened day. 

We can’t wait to see all of our students very soon!

Dr. V
