Communication & News

The district remains committed to communicating all elements of the reopening plan to students, parents and guardians, staff and visitors. The plan is available to all stakeholders via the district website at www.mw.k12.ny.us, and will be updated, as necessary, to respond to local circumstances. The link to the plan appears on the website homepage and is located in Quick Links on every school homepage.

Every effort has been made to ensure that the plan is accessible to all individuals in accordance with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 Level A/AA. The plan can also be translated into other languages, via the G-Translate feature available on the district website. 

As part of its planning for the reopening of schools and the new academic year, the district has developed a plan for communicating all necessary information to district staff, students, parents/guardians, visitors. The district will use its existing communication channels – including its mass communications system (email/text/phone messages), the district website www.mw.k12.ny.us, and district social media accounts (Facebook, Instagram, YouTube) as well as appropriate signage and training opportunities to support the dissemination of consistent messaging regarding new protocols and procedures, expectations, requirements and options related to school operations throughout the pandemic. Signage and instructions will be available in English and Spanish. 

Stakeholder Input

Throughout the planning process, the school district has sought feedback from stakeholders, including parents, students and staff. A series of surveys were offered asking for input regarding devices/internet, social emotional wellness, instructional models, transportation and more.
