Early Summer District Update

Posted by Adam Spina on 6/30/2021 10:15:00 AM

WCS remains committed to open all district schools and facilities for full-time in-person instruction and co-curricular activities in August. Our technology, custodial, and maintenance teams are busy preparing the buildings with this goal in mind. As this important work takes place, we are continuing to monitor developments with Covid-19 and review corresponding publications from the CDC and MDHHS. More information on Covid-19 mitigation plans will be forthcoming later this summer.

Despite the weather, scheduled summer improvement projects have commenced. Highlights include the construction of a new research laboratory and new roofing at Williamston High School and the resurfacing of the WCS tennis court facility. More information on projected summer facility improvements can be found here.

We welcomed two new members to our leadership team this week. Sarah Tynan, CPA  is the District’s new Director of Finance. Sarah previously worked for Plante Moran, specializing in tax accounting for both construction and manufacturing and distribution clients. James Doyen, who has worked in Williamston as both a technician and technology support specialist, was promoted to the position of Supervisor of Technology. Sarah and James join a strong administrative team that will return all of its instructional leaders for the 2021-2022 school year. Learn more about the members of the WCS administrative team here.

Finally, a reminder that the summer food distribution program is running every Tuesday from 12:00 - 2:00 pm at Williamston High School. Meal packages include seven breakfasts and lunches, as well as two half-gallons of milk. Meals are free to any child age 18 and younger or any student receiving special education services up to age 26. More information can be found on the WCS website or at the link here.

Thank you WCS Food Service!
