District Announcements

  • Letter from the Superintendent - June 25, 2022

    Dear Wayne Schools Community Members: As a school system, our first responsibility, above any other responsibility, is to make sure that all of our students and school employees return home to their families and loved ones at the end of each day. Any incident, such as what occurred yesterday at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, shakes our sense of security and leaves us with an overwhelming sense of loss. I am writing today to assure you that the Wayne Township Public Schools are very secure, and each school is a place where all members of the school community can feel safe.
