ALL students, grades K-8 will have ½ days with dismissal at 11:50AM on both Monday and Tuesday 11/25 and 11/26. WCS conferences will only be held on Monday 11/25 from 12:00PM - 6:00PM.

Once again, we will be scheduling Parent Teacher Conferences online with PTCFast.com. On this site you will be able to schedule a conference for all of your children. If you do not have internet access, you can call the office (443-9739) and we will schedule the conference(s) for you, or answer any questions. 

Click on www.woolwich.rsu1.org, then on “Parent Teacher Conference Schedule and Sign Up” link to schedule your children.

  • You will be directed to a screen with all the teachers listed. Click on your child(ren)’s teacher(s).

  • Middle school parents (Grade 6, 7 & 8) should meet with their student’s individual subject teachers. You will have 10 minute conferences and may choose with teachers you would like to speak with.

  • If you have more than 1 child, select “...more than one student” on the next screen.

  • Fill in your child’s first and last name on the next screen and click “done” when finished.

  • Enter your contact information and click “submit.”

  • You will receive an email within the next few minutes, with a link that will take you to the sign up screen, where you can choose what conference time is best for you.

  • We encourage you to leave time between conferences, so that the schedule will not get bogged down. (3:15 - 3:30 and then 3:45 - 4:00, e.g.)

  • Since there are limited time slots available, we are limiting conferences to one per child. Conferences are 15 minutes for K-5 and 10 minutes for 6th, 7th & 8th. Please adhere to the time limit. Feel free to email your child’s teacher throughout the school year to stay up to date. You can find email addresses of staff on the school website. Parents of students in grades 6, 7 & 8 can check their student’s grades and attendance all year, through the Infinite Campus Portal. Please contact the office if you did not receive sign in information.


Flu season is upon us, and flu clinics abound.  I highly encourage all that are able to get a flu shot.  Here are three upcoming clinics where you do NOT need an appointment and shots are free: 

- Monday, 11/18 at Dike Newell School  4:00 PM - 7:00 PM

- Monday, 11/25 at the Woolwich Central School 11:00 AM - 4:00 PM 

For our clinic this year I am going to allow your students to get flu shots without the parent/guardian being present.  If that is what you desire you MUST fill out a form in advance of the clinic.  I have them on my desk so you should call me, (or send me an email) to have one sent home. You can also stop by to fill it out. Students cannot get a shot without you here, if the form is not completed. I am offering this as many parents work and it is hard to get here.  There is NO CHARGE for this flu shot. If you have any questions please let me know. ~ Nurse Sherwood
