Dear Families, 


I am incredibly pleased to welcome you and your family to Waverly for this school year. In this summer “packet,” you will find a number of important and useful documents. 


You will be able to view your child’s placement in Home Access Center on August 15th after setting up your account.  Our placement team carefully considered each placement, taking into consideration a number of factors, with a singular purpose: creating a nurturing, supportive environment in order for your child to be successful. Given the intricate nature of our placement process, please note that requests for placement changes will not be granted.
