FOOD SERVICES UPDATE

The Wyoming Area School District will be providing grab and go lunches for students starting on Wednesday, March 18th. Lunches will be available in the Secondary Center Cafeteria, please enter through the rear of the building for pick up. Lunches will be available on weekdays from 11:30 am- 12:30 pm. All students are eligible, but we are asking families to provide the names and grade of students when picking up lunches. 


NEW STUDENT RESOURCES WEBSITE FROM WASD

The district created a new website called STUDENT RESOURCES.  This will provide supplemental websites and information available to students and parents during the closure.  We informed faculty that it was non-mandatory to provide take home or supplemental materials so this website section was created for students to continue their education through FREE resources available beyond what the district is already offering.

Please take the time to navigate through the website department and check back for periodic updates.  There are several outside providers extending FREE services which normally require a subscription and as we are updated, we will continue to post these to the website.


Reach Out PA - Your Mental Health Matters

Governor Wolf seeking input on the state of Mental Health in PA. You can click on the link below to provide feedback to what we are experiencing as a School Community with limited to No funding.  Feel free to add in your comments that grants are not cutting it with the Mental Health crisis - PA needs to provide direct funding to schools and not only through grants -  because many suburban school districts as us in WA; do not get selected because of not meeting the criteria as an  inner-city or rural school district.

Every Student Succeeds Act

Under the federal Every Student Succeeds Act, states are required to designate schools for support and improvement based on both school wide (Comprehensive Support and Improvement) and student group (Additional Targeted Support and Improvement) performance on a range of academic and student success measures.  Wyoming Area Secondary Center is one of approximately 200 schools statewide designated for Additional Targeted Support and Improvement status. This designation is based on student data suggesting the need to prioritize additional supports for our Students with Disabilities group in the following areas: academic proficiency on state assessments, academic growth, and attendance rate. This designation will provide opportunities for our school district to partner with stakeholders to identify and focus on the continuous improvement of instruction for all our students K-12.  Click to read the district A-TSI PARENT LETTER for additional information.

Wyoming Area School District strives to maintain strong safety and security measures for all students and staff.  Many measures have been in place and will continue to be evaluated.  Any parent, student, or community member who wishes to meet and discuss their concerns with the Superintendent may contact Mrs. Janet Serino at 570-655-3733 ext. 2426.
