Important Reminders

Dismissal Safety Reminder

For the safety of our students and families, please do not park on the corner of New Street and Hall Avenue at dismissal. The buses are unable to pass safely, and neither is a firetruck. As you are well aware, this could present a very dangerous situation for our neighbors and children.


Bus Reminder:

Please be advised that it is illegal and dangerous to pass school busses when they have their red lights flashing.


Attendance Rules:

Please click here for instructions on what to do if your child is absent.

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 Mari Doyle 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 Mari Doyle at 914-793-6130, ext. 5502. Thank you, in advance for your cooperation.

    As one might imagine, we seldom quote Stephen King at Waverly, but I happened upon this quote recently, and it seemed fitting for this new shared venture: "Books are uniquely portable magic." Please take a look at this new feature of the Waverly website, and share a little magic today!
