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 buses 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.

     This week’s book recommendation comes from Mrs. Torres. The Book with No Pictures, by B.J. Novak, is one of her favorite books. She loves this book because it shows how much fun language and words can be!

     

    Below is a video of the author reading a portion of the text to students in a school in New York City.

     

    For the next several weeks, we’ll use this space to showcase a website or mobile application of interest for our young learners.

    Storyline Online is a wonderful site where users can select popular stories to be read by members of the Screen Actors Guild.
