The first day of school for students in grades 6-12 is Wednesday, August 14 and elementary students will begin on Thursday, August 15. Please contact the individual school for additional questions.

Summer time has been filled with many projects to get ready for the school year. Parking lots have been repainted and asphalt repairs at Waverly High School and Waverly Intermediate School are occurring, gym floors have been refinished, rubber membrane roof repairs have occurred at Eagle Elementary and Waverly High School.  Concrete replacement at Viking Stadium around the concession area was completed, drainage improvements (including concrete) on the north side of Eagle Elementary is scheduled to be completed, and concrete work at Hamlow Elementary will occur soon. The ductwork in the Waverly High School Commons area has been painted, and painting at many buildings has occurred as part of summer maintenance.

Hamlow Elementary heating and cooling project is nearing completion. This week the new geothermal system is being put into operation and all custodians in the district are converging on Hamlow to complete necessary cleaning to prepare the building for students and staff. A special thank you to Trane, especially project superintendent Gary Voss, and District 145 Business Manager Robin Hoffman for maintaining an aggressive schedule that will allow us to start school on time.

In one week, we will welcome many new faces among our 1,825 students. We also have eleven new teachers joining our staff this year. We are looking forward to a great year!
