No Candy in School

Parents, please remember that students are not permitted to bring candy to school. The details of our practices at Waverly School are outlined on page 9 of the Family Handbook. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to call Jeff Melendez at 914-793-6130, ext. 5502.


No Cars in the Bus Circle

Unfortunately, a number of parents have been observed entering the bus circle before 9:00 AM and while students are unloading from busses. In addition, some cars have passed school buses while their lights were blinking which is illegal and a moving violation. For the safety of our students, please be sure to use the Hall Avenue entrance if you are dropping off your child before 9:00 AM. If you arrive after 9:00 AM, you will need to find alternate parking and escort your child into the school. The details of our practices at Waverly School are outlined on page 5 of the Family Handbook. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to call Jeff Melendez at 914-793-6130, ext. 5502. Thank you, in advance for your cooperation.
