Welcome to Howard Lake - Waverly - Winsted Public Schools!
ESSER 3 FUNDING SURVEY 2021-22
HLWW Parents & Guardians,
We hope everyone is having a great summer!
The purpose of this message is to gain some input about our school district's plans for the spending of additional school funding for the 2021-22 school year.
The Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief funds (ESSER 3), is the third round of funding that schools will be receiving to address the effects of COVID-19 on students and staff.
As part of the process for using these funds, school districts are asked to conduct surveys and input gathering with parents and staff members about ways in which to use the funds.
While the funds do have some limitations in terms of their use, getting feedback on initial plans as well as other possible ideas of things that our stakeholders feel are important, will help ensure schools are prioritizing their efforts to best meet the needs of students and staff.
We appreciate your time in taking our survey. The survey includes an explanation of the HLWW's initial plans and the appropriate uses of the ESSER 3 funds. The survey will close on August 4, 2021.
With all the changes to transportation in 20-21 due to COVID, HLWW Public Schools is planning to return to a ONE ROUTE SYSTEM (A.M. and P.M.) in 2021-22, utilizing some shuttles from the MS/HS for elementary students as we did in 2019-20.
If your child did not ride the bus in 20-21 due to COVID restrictions or other, and you would like to have them ride the bus in 2021-22, we ask that parents please contact Nicole McKee, 4.0 School Services, to indicate your need for student transportation.
Bus pick up and drop off times can be viewed via ParentVue using the transportation tab, starting August 16, 2021. If you do not have a ParentVue account, please contact your child’s school to get one set up.
REMINDER – First day of school is August 30, 2021 and START/DISMISSAL TIMES are as follows:
Elementary – 8:10 a.m. to 2:40 p.m.
Middle/High School – 7:55 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
* Note – These times may need to be adjusted a few minutes based on bus routing, and if so, we will communicate that as soon as we can.
