Today is IT appreciation day, and our amazing Information Technology team is more than deserving of our praise! These tech wizards are highly skilled, dedicated, and adaptable. They perform their tech magic every day, keeping all of our technology systems running and ensuring the best learning environment possible for our students. This summer, they put in long hours to rebuild the technology infrastructure at Moon School during construction while still providing support to the rest of our sites, distributing devices to staff and students, rostering curriculum and education technology tools for teachers, and more - and they did it all with a smile and an unmatched dedication to excellent customer service. We appreciate you! #RelationshipsMatter #WaterfordCares #WUSD

August 31 marks International Overdose Awareness Day each year. It’s a day to remember those who have been lost to overdose, acknowledge the grief of the family and friends left behind, and renew our commitment to end overdose and related harms. One thing #WUSD is doing to #EndOverdose is ensuring that Naloxone is readily accessible on all campuses and that all staff are trained to administer it. Naloxone is a life-saving medication that can reverse the effects of an opioid overdose when administered in time. You can join the fight to #EndOverdose by visiting the CDC webpage and learning more: https://www.cdc.gov/ #WaterfordCares #RelationshipsMatter
