The Wainscott Common School District and its community are committed to the belief that all children have the right and should be provided the opportunity to achieve excellence in educational pursuits. The role of the District is to educate students in the values, critical skills, and essential knowledge necessary to be informed and responsible citizens, prepared to take the next steps in their education, careers, and lives in our diverse society.
When School is closed due to inclement weather, bad road conditions or other emergencies, that information will be available in the following locations:
Radio Station: WLNG 92.1 FM / 1600AM
Television Station: News 12 & news12.com
We will NOT be phoning each family!
School hours are from 8:00 a.m. until 2:40 p.m. each day. Students should not arrive earlier than 7:55 a.m. unless they are participating in a supervised activity. Students who arrive after 8:05 a.m . must check in at the school office and will be marked “late”.
An important part of being successful in school is regular and punctual attendance. All students are expected to be in attendance each day unless they are ill or a family emergency arises. We realize that there will be times when a student may be late, but please avoid this whenever possible. Tardiness interrupts your child’s and their classmates’ instructional time. Your child may miss important information about the day or upcoming events.
Please notify the school as soon as possible when your child will be absent. A note confirming your child’s absence must accompany your child upon his/ her return to school. Please state the reason and date(s) of absence(s). These notes remain on file in the office and are required by New York State Law.
All students who leave before the end of the regular school day must be signed out with school personnel by a parent or guardian.
All students are to bring their drinks, snack and lunch to school every day, unless otherwise notified. Healthy snacks are encouraged.
Friday is “Pizza Day”. The District will provide one slice of pizza per student. The students must still bring a snack and drink to school. If they do not wish to eat pizza, they must bring a lunch as well.
The Wainscott School recognizes the physical, mental, social, behavioral and academic benefits of outdoor recess. Therefore, Wainscott School students are given the opportunity to play outside whenever possible. Children should come to school appropriately dressed for outside play, year round.
Students may not give themselves their own medication. Parents will be required to administer their child’s medications or may give written permission to a school employee to administer it.
Report cards are issued three times during the academic year: December, March and June. Parent Teacher Conferences are held twice a year. Additional conferences may be scheduled if needed.
Homework is assigned by the teacher and is completed after school. It should be a review of what was already taught in school and expand on a student’s school experience. Homework is considered an important part of education. Students are encouraged to set aside regular time to complete their homework. Completing and returning homework assignments are the student’s responsibility.
The Wainscott Common School District provides bus transportation to students attending Wainscott School. Riding the bus is a privilege and may be taken away if the student does not follow the rules and regulations. In such cases that a student is removed from a bus, parents will be required to transport their child for the designated time frame.
Students must use only their bus and bus stop that has been assigned for them. They are expected to practice orderly and safe behaviors while waiting for the bus. The following rules are to be followed when riding on a school bus:
- Remain in their seat, facing front, when the bus is in motion
- WEAR SEATBELTS at all times
- Talk quietly and make no unnecessary noise
- Keep their head, arms, and personal belongings inside the bus
- Keep the aisle clear
- Wait for the driver’s signal before crossing the street. Cross at least ten feet in front of the bus
- Do not eat or drink on the bus on routine am and pm bus routes
- Do not bully, harass, argue, or engage in any rough housing behavior with any other student on a bus
- Do not be disrespectful to the bus driver
The Wainscott Common School District provides the students with computers to use during the school day. The computers have access to the Internet and may be used to enhance learning. Using the computers and the Internet is a privilege and each student must have permission from their parent or guardian before he/ she can use the computers at school. The parents of all students are required to sign a form stating that he/she has read the Acceptable Use Policy and agrees to follow its rules.
Visitors of the Wainscott School must enter the building through the main door and sign in with school personnel.
During the school year, the Superintendent may have to cancel classes before school or prior to the scheduled dismissal time because of weather conditions or other unforeseen reasons.
