Whitin Weekly December 12th
Dear Whitin Families,
The following is the update for the week of December 12, 2021.
School Nurse update:
We have finalized the hiring of the Whitin School nurse after Ms. Kristin Gauthier left the position on December 3rd.
Since this is a challenging time of year to fill such a critical position, we have hired two nurses to fill the role for the remainder of the year. In the spring we plan to repost the position with the hopes of hiring a full time nurse for the 2022/2023 school year.
Ms. Aimee Roche and Ms. Sujittra Tamulis will be sharing the role of Whitin School nurse. They have divided their schedule to ensure a nurse is on staff 5 days a week. Ms. Padula and Ms. Schiller, the nurses at Taft and the high school worked with Ms. Roche and Ms. Tamulis last week to ensure a smooth transition.
We are pleased to have both Ms. Roche and Ms. Tamulis working with us for the remainder of the school year.
If you have a need to speak to the nurse during the school day please call the main line and you will be directed to the nurse’s office 508-278-8640.
The last day of school before winter break is Thursday, December 23rd which is a half day of school. Winter break is from Friday, December 24th-Monday January 3rd.
STUDENTS RETURN TO SCHOOL ON TUESDAY, JANUARY 4TH.
