Message from the


Greetings and welcome to 2017! Our students have returned from

winter break and are back into the routine. Thus far, the weather has been

cooperating, although it is clear the cold air is on the way. Here are some re-

minders. Please have your children dress appropriately for these cold days,

especially if they are walking to school. While a brisk winter walk is great

exercise for both the body and mind, it is important to keep any exposed

skin covered! Also, please remember that the Wolcott Street School doors

open promptly at 8:45 am (7:45 am for band and chorus). Teachers are not

in classrooms, so there is no supervision for students prior to that time. We

know it is difficult for students to be waiting outside in the cold for extend-

ed periods of time, so timing their arrival to school as close to that time as

possible is very helpful. Thanks so much for your support with this.

The school board continues its search for the new superintendent.

Three finalists have been selected. They are: Dr. Jared Taft, Mr. Merritt

Holly, and Mr. Brian Bartalo. Dr. Taft is currently the Pathways in Technol-

ogy (P-TECH) Administrator and High School Assistant Principal of Lack-

awanna High School in Lackawanna, NY. Mr. Holly has served as Princi-

pal of Caledonia-Mumford High School since 2011 and Mr. Bartalo is the

High School Principal and International Baccalaureate Head of School of

Hilton High School where he has served since 2005. The finalists will visit

the district on January 17th, 18th and 19th, with Dr. Taft on January 17th,

Mr. Holly on January 18th, and Mr. Bartalo on January 19th. Meet and

greet forums, which are open to the public, will be held each day in the Me-

morial Auditorium at the Wolcott Street School from 4:05-4:35 p.m. Please

feel free to attend and meet the candidates.

Stay warm!


Kim Cox, Superintendent of Schools
