Safety First

Dear Waterbury Community Members:

Students will be returning to Waterbury Public Schools on Monday, August 27, 2018. Please be aware that students will once again be walking to and from school and that school busses will be transporting students out on our roads. State law requires that you must stop for your vehicle at least ten feet from the front or rear of a school bus until it no longer displays its stop signals. Crossing guards will be assisting students at main intersections but there are other intersections where students may be crossing on their own.  Please remember that the safety of our students should be paramount to all. Thank you.  

School Physicals

Dear Parent/Guardian,  

It is very important for us to work together to protect all the children in our care.

  • School physicals performed by authorized medical providers in Connecticut need to be on file prior to student entering Kindergarten, Grade 6 and Grade 10.
  • If your child is entering Grade 1, 7 or 11 and still has no physical or immunization on record, please provide the school nurse with all required medical documents prior to August 27, 2018 or your child will not be allowed to attend school.
  • There are exceptions to this rule that recognize your rights as parents. Please see the district website for full information.
  • You may also click on this link to the School Nursing website for more information.

Congratulations to Bernardo Mbaya ~ Breaks 53 Year NVL Discus Record!!

Bernardo has been recognized as Athlete of the Week ~ Rep-Am 5/29/18
click link above to read Bernardo's Highlights


Click image above to see video of Bernardo's Discus throw

Bernardo Mbaya has been a member of the track team all 4 years of high school. As a senior this year, he has emerged as one of the top discus and shot putters in the state. His throws of 158 feet 3 inches in the discus and 51 feet 3 inches in the shot put place him in the top 3 in both events in Class L and in the top 6 in the state. His discus throw is 1st in the entire state. During the indoor season, he was 3rd in the NVL in the shot put. He is the city champion in both events and broke the meet record in both events at the Torrington Challenge Invitational. He finished 2ndin the Shot Put at the NVL Championship and broke the 53 year old meet record in the discus to earn ALL-NVL honors in both events. This didn’t happen by coincidence. Bernardo has honed his craft during this time. Whether he is hitting the weights or constantly working to perfect his spin or release point, Bernardo puts the work in every day. Bernardo will be attending Southern Connecticut State in the fall with plans of competing for the Owls at the NCAA level.

Heroin Education Action Team (H.E.A.T.) Presentation

Parents and friends are cordially invited to attend an evening presentation at Wilby High School on Wednesday, May 30th from 6:00 – 7:30 pm:

The opioid epidemic is a national crisis that has hit Connecticut hard.  Over 900 people died from opioid overdoses in 2016 in Connecticut and in 2017 the Connecticut Medical Examiner’s Office reported a total of 1038 opioid overdoses.  In response, the Waterbury Board of Education, the Waterbury Department of Public Health, the Mayor’s Task Force Against Substance Abuse and the Central Naugatuck Valley Opioid Workgroup have teamed to invite the United States Attorney’s Office to present an educational event for our entire school community offered by the Heroin Education Action Team (H.E.A.T.).

The program will discuss the statistics and the serious problem with abuse of prescription painkillers, which many times leads users to purchase the cheaper alternative, heroin.  However, the heroin seen on the streets now is almost always laced with fentanyl, an even more potent and lethal drug which is prevalent in most overdose deaths.  In response to the spike in the number of overdose deaths in Connecticut, in 2016 the United States Attorney’s Office began prosecuting drug dealers whose drugs contributed to the death of the victim(s).
