We don't REALLY want to think about it, but it is getting to be the time of year when we should let you know how we make announcements in the event of the need for an unexpected school delay or closure due to weather. Decisions are typically made in the wee hours of the morning, so we can get the message to you by 6:30AM. We first post announcements on social media: Instagram and Twitter (see The Principal's Corner for how to follow us) followed by a robocall using our emergency notification system.
We don't REALLY want to think about it, but it is getting to be the time of year when we should let you know how we make announcements in the event of the need for an unexpected school delay or closure due to weather. Decisions are typically made in the wee hours of the morning, so we can get the message to you by 6:30AM. We first post announcements on social media: Instagram and Twitter (see The Principal's Corner for how to follow us) followed by a robocall using our emergency notification system. We also post a page-pop notification on our school's web page and advertise on local radio and television stations: WWLP-TV Springfield 22, WNYT - WXXA - WRVE - WYGB, WTEN - WFLY - WGNA, WTRY/WPYX - WGY - WRGB, WTRY/WPYX - WGY - WRGB, plus iBerkshires and The Berkshire Eagle. This is a perfect time to go into your parent portal to be sure that your phone numbers are updated and correct. Let's think snow - but not too much snow!

Uh, oh! Cold and flu season is upon us! There is lots you can do, though, to stay healthy and help keep others healthy as well. We are sharing this important flier with excellent tips to help us all make it through flu season with proper information. Remember, if you child does get sick with the flu or another virus that he/she needs to stay home for at least 24 hours after having been fever-free without the use of fever-reducing medications.

It is helpful to monitor trends in illness, and maybe to prevent them! Please email the nurse with information about your student's illness, especially if they are being treated with antibiotics, for example strep, sinus infections, pneumonia, etc.

Much Appreciated!  ~ Nurse Carol

Our school said goodbye to our beloved Dolores Burns today. Dolores is retiring after 16 years at WES, and in the time she has been here, she has become so much to so many people. Everyone knows Dolores; she is the face of our school! We will miss you terribly, Dolores, but we send you on you way to retirement in Florida with the love of a whole school community behind you.
