Parents of ALL WPS Students
All Wallingford Schools with the exception of Sheehan High School will be open tomorrow, October 31, 2012. Only Sheehan High School will remain closed.
Parents/Guardians of Sheehan Students --
The storm we experienced over the last two days caused some damage to the portion of the roof that was not replaced this summer allowing water to leak into some areas of the building. Clean up is well underway, but we will need two additional days to complete the necessary repairs. Therefore, there will be no school for Sheehan High School students on Wednesday, October 31 or Thursday, November 1.
