Message from Dr. Tod F. Kline Superintendent:
Dear Students, Parents, Staff and Waynesboro Community Residents,
Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year. The Waynesboro Area School District (WASD) has a tradition of performing well in academics and extracurricular activities. We have a vision that WASD becomes the “First Choice” school district for the community, parents, employees, and, especially, students. This vision is possible because we are blessed with hardworking, talented, and dedicated teachers, administrators and support staff. It is an honor to be the superintendent of schools in this wonderful community. Please be assured that the WASD staff and the Board of School Directors are committed to our mission of educating and empowering students for future success.
We are grateful the Record Herald and local businesses support the publication of this school calendar. The calendar contains a wealth of district information, listings of school activities, and of course the 2019-2020 school calendar. Please retain this calendar to serve as a reference for the school year. However, please note that event schedules may change due to various circumstances throughout the year, so please verify on the district website.
As you review the calendar, our students present outstanding events for which they work very hard to produce. We invite you to attend and enjoy the activities. Our students and staff appreciate your support of the wide variety of activities that are offered throughout the year. We are also pleased by the support of parents and families as you encourage your children/teens to participate fully in offered educational experiences.
Our district is committed to open communication and collaboration. In addition, WASD will be promoting community partnerships for the purpose of improving each child’s educational experience. The district website can be accessed at www.wasdpa.org. The district has a Community Web Portal where parents and students can access real time information on grades, report cards, attendance, and discipline. Students can monitor their own academic progress and view homework on the district website. Parents can request access to this valuable resource by applying for an account online and receiving a key word from the appropriate building.
As we begin this new school year, please contact any school office or the district central administration if you have any suggestions or questions. While partnering with the district community, the school district is looking forward to another year of striving for academic excellence, personal growth, and success for all of our students.
Tod F. Kline, Ed.D.
Superintendent of Schools
