We would like to wish Nurse Carolann and Nurse Lauren happy National School Nurse Day! Thank you for supporting our school and keeping WACS healthy. You have helped us navigate the pandemic and we are THANKFUL. And to all school nurses - thank you!
Good afternoon WACS families, We would like to share a few encouraging updates. Our county’s COVID -19 transmission rate is dropping. As a result, we are able to adjust physical distancing at the secondary school from 6’ to 3’. Instructionally, the adjustment only pertains to specific classrooms. Cafeteria, PE and music are still required to maintain physical distancing of 6’ or greater. This adjustment will allow our school to greatly reduce the need for our “Zoom” room. Face coverings will still be worn. We will begin this change on Monday, May 17th. There will be no changes at the elementary school. Thank you to all for our feedback and for completing the survey. We are continuing to shape the educational plan for the remaining Wednesdays. Please continue to look for information from your child’s teacher as we explore ways to provide additional academic support. We have begun this transition and will continue to develop it for the remainder of the school year. As always, please feel free to reach out to me or your principal with any questions. Be well WACS! Mr. Cipolla

To every employee of the Westfield Academy and Central School District: Congratulations!

The Board appreciates all of you and your outstanding dedication to our students. We thank you, and we are humbled by all that you have accomplished.

GLOW DAY 2021: Our 4th graders had a totally awesome day practicing their math skills under black lights. The fourth grade teachers saw the idea online and knew they had to create this fun day for students as a way to engage them in mixed skill math review. The various activities required students to use their mathematical minds to solve tasks involving math facts, angles, fractions, expanded form, geometric shapes, word problems and much more. What a blast!
Please join us in congratulating our middle and high school students on the Academic Merit, Honor and High Honor Rolls for the 3rd quarter. We are proud of your hard work and dedication to learning. Well done, wolverines!
Our Elementary hallways are in full bloom for spring!
