Good morning, Due to a heating issue in the building, with 13 of our 14 classrooms below 60 degrees, Windham Center School will be dismissing early today, January 19th, at 12:30pm. There will be no after-school programming. We are working to resolve this issue, and we will provide updates as soon as possible. Buenos días Familias de Windham Center, Debido a un problema de calefacción en el edificio con 13 de los 14 salones aún por debajo de los 60 grados, La escuela de Windham Center despedirá temprano de hoy,19 de enero, a las 12:30 p.m. No habrá programación después de la escuela.

Good Afternoon Windham Staff and Families, First, I would like to thank everyone for their patience this morning as we worked to ensure safety at Windham Middle School when we learned the water main break would not be repaired before school started. I am happy to report that Windham Middle School, Windham Early Childhood and all programs housed within that building are all set to return to school tomorrow, Wednesday, January 19th, as the water main issues have been repaired. Unfortunately, Windham Middle School and all of the specialized programs housed within will need to make up this lost school day at the end of the year. Next, I know some of you who received the push notifications for this morning’s water main issue were unhappy with the fact that a district phone call was not received. I want to make sure everyone knows that the push notifications, as well as posting on social media, are the fastest way to get information to every household. The decision not to use a phone call this morning was made based on when the town notified the school system of just how long they anticipated Windham Middle School would be without water. The information was simply received too late to record a phone message. We encourage you to visit our website at https://www.windhamps.org/ to download the app that will allow you to receive these push notifications in the future. Next, the district continues to post extremely high positive case numbers. Our staff have been doing an amazing job of covering classes since so many staff members have been out sick themselves or are home caring for their sick children. We are doing everything in our power to keep schools open for those students well enough to attend. Thank you to the Windham Public School Staff for stepping up during a very difficult time. Please visit our COVID Dashboard for the specific locations of today’s positive cases. The dashboard can be found on our website’s home page under the COVID Updates tab. Finally, DPH continues to share the importance of being vaccinated and boosted, wearing masks, washing your hands and avoiding large crowds. We are hoping this latest surge will be over soon but need your help to keep everyone in the Wellness Zone. Have a great night everyone.
The school district was just informed that a water main issue in town cannot be repaired in time for school to start at Windham Middle School. As a result, school will be closed for Windham Middle School and Windham Early Childhood Center housed there for Tuesday, January 18th. If you have not already sent your middle school students in, please keep them home. We recognize that buses have already started to pick up middle school students and will be working with the bus company on getting them back to their bus stops as soon as we are able to do so. We apologize for the inconvenience as a result of this emergency.

Good Evening Windham High School & Windham Early Headstart Families, We have been assured that the fire alarms are now working in Windham High School, so school will be in session as planned for tomorrow, Thursday, December 23rd. Thank you.
Please enjoy this holiday rendition of Feliz Navidad, performed by Windham students by accessing the video archive on the District's website.
Due to a fire alarm issue at Windham High School that would leave students and staff vulnerable, we are dismissing early today. Dismissal will occur at approximately 11:30am. All after school activities are also cancelled.
It has been a very stressful week, but we made it through. We are hoping to have all students back on campus on Monday, December 20th. This includes Windham Center School as their outbreak testing proved they are healthy enough to remain open. Unfortunately, the district had another 33 positive cases this week. Please visit the district’s COVID dashboard. Have a restful weekend.
