Warwick schools open Sept. 5

The Warwick School District in typical fashion opens the school year –on Wednesday, Sept. 5–later than all others in the county.

Warwick School District, which didn’t end summer vacation until Sept. 6 a year ago, last week officially welcomed all new staff members for the 2018-2019 school year. The new staff participated in a two-day orientation where district administrators presented on a variety of topics. Warwick’s new staff spent plenty of time learning about district programs, protocols, procedures and more. For the first time, the new staff members got a tour of the district where they were able to see each of the six buildings within the district.

Front row: Jackie Hess, Beth Kefer, Shanna Irish-Fyke, Brian Aloisio, Rebecca Lewis, Ashley Turton; (Middle row): Eric Myers, Linnea Martin, Holly Kellum, Ashley Weaver, Mallory Carcia, Maribeth Johnson, Kathryn Sutcliffe, Connor Weismadnel, Kristen Peterson; (Back row): Andy Chacon, Amanda Cash, Dalton Patterson, Jen Fry, Brian Pearson, Allison Hausman. Weismandel and Turton are not new staff — both started in August 2017 — but participated in a two-day orientation where district administrators presented a variety of topics to new staff members.

“We had 21 new professional staff in attendance for the orientation. This is the first time our new staff had a tour of the district and were able to visit all six buildings. They got to see the district as a whole, and recognize their part in contributing to the Warwick student” stated Dr. Ron Hallett, Director of Instruction and Curriculum for Warwick. Hallett continued on by saying, “It’s exciting to see the energy that each of these staff members brings to the district. I’m confident that they will have a tremendous impact on the lives our students.”
