Good evening Due to staffing shortfalls related to illness, we must close all Watervliet Public Schools on Tuesday, January 25th. Tomorrow will be treated like a snow day, with no students or staff reporting. School leaders will work to make plans for Wednesday and beyond. The options we will be considering include: * opening schools with limited or delayed bus runs; * opening schools with families needing to provide their own transportation; * keeping schools closed through Thursday, * or providing remote instruction for Wednesday and Thursday. You will receive a message from Watervliet Schools with these next steps. Again, please look for information tomorrow afternoon regarding our next steps. Thank you
